Born a Champion — Straight Out of the Box.

The GMX 3 Series won a World Championship title in its first trip to a tournament field. Germany’s Michelle Kroppen took the GMX 3 Series to the top of the podium at the 2023 World Archery Championship. Featuring the same grip-to-limb pivot positioning of the Formula XD used by Mete Gazoz to win the World Championship, the GMX 3 Series gives the archer a geometry that promotes optimal tuning and grip engagement, harmonizing the archer to the bow. GMX 3 Series was born a champion, straight out of the box.

360º Pocket Damper

360º Pocket Damper.

Dampers are located in both the top and bottom pockets of the limbs, the optimal location to reduce both tactile and acoustic vibration. Significant vibration reduction in all axis. Factory installed, user adjustable/removable.

Perfect Balance Compatible.

Perfect Balance Compatible.

Weight System available as accessory with 1 oz optional stainless steel weights that fit inside cutouts and replaces the 360º Damper. Installation of one 1 oz weight in the bottom limb pocket balances riser perfectly at the pivot point.

360º Pocket Damper

Dynamic Balance Design.

Dynamic Balance Design (DBD) principles in all current Hoyt risers shift more of the riser's mass to the top and bottom limb pockets of the riser, increasing outboard inertia. This allows the riser to have a very stable feel during the draw cycle and especially during the launch of the arrow.

Perfect Balance Compatible.

New Pro Series Tiller Bolt.

Radial Laser Index Marks provide easy to use, repeatable tiller and weight adjustment alignment. Precisely crafted from premium stainless steel, and finished with a tough Nitride coating.

Perfect Balance Compatible.

Verta-Tune included.

Verta-Tune allows archers to customize the vertical location of the rest relative to the grip. GMX 3 Series comes standard with the high and middle clicker extension Verta-Tune plates.
