Editors' reviewThe Bear Done Deal is a smooth single cam bow with a solid back wall. While this bow is very similar to another Bear rig (the Truth 2), many shooters agree the Done Deal is a better value for money. It is said that the Done Deal is a budget version of the Truth 2. The major difference between the 2 bows is that the Done Deal does not have Winner's Choice strings.
Riser and GripThe new Minimum Reflex Riser is engineered to deliver more accurate and more forgiving shots. This machined aluminum riser is firmly connected to the limbs through the Aluminum Pivoting Limb cups. The Done Deal is equipped with a one piece synthetic grip. Many archers say the grip is slim, comfortable, and reduces the possibility of hand torque. Therefore, if you like slim grips this rig should feel right in your hand.
LimbsThe Done Deal is equipped with durable Flare Quad Limbs designed to reduce noise, vibration, and shock. The limbs go to past parallel angles at full draw and act in opposition to each other at the shot to reduce vibration and shock. They are built using Bear's compression-molded technology that delivers equal stress distribution and smooth energy release.
Eccentric systemBear's Perimeter-Weighted Modular Single Cam eccentric system is the driving force behind advertised IBO speeds reaching 307 to 311 fps. This modular-adjustable eccentric system features a set of interchangeable modules used for changing the draw length. The draw length is adjustable over a 24"-30" range in 1 inch increments. A segment of 27 to 30 inch draw lengths is adjustable without using a bow press. In addition, each module has a string post that is used for making half-inch adjustments without changing out the module.
Draw cycle / ShootabilityHaving analyzed a lot of opinions about the Done Deal, we can confirm this is a good shooting rig with a smooth draw cycle, good wall, and solid silencing system. Overall, this is a solid bow for the money.
Overall qualityWhile many shooters say that the Done Deal is a good quality rig, they very often say the factory strings could be of better quality. While some archers are happy to shoot this bow without any tweaks, others prefer to replace the strings with a quality set. Apart from the factory strings, all other components appear to be solid. Overall, this is a good shooting rig for the money.
Value for money
While the Done Deal is very similar to the Bear Truth 2, the former is considered to be a better value for the money. Some archers believe that the Truth 2 is a bit overpriced and prefer to buy the Done Deal, shoot it until the string are worn, and then replace them with a better set.
