Bear LS6
Editor review:

The Bear brand is an iconic brand founded by what many believe is the father of archery, as we know it today, Fred Bear. The Legend Series takes that a step further incorporating Mr. Bear himself into the branding. Shooters interested in the LS-6 performance are already aware of some compromises needed to achieve such a high performance 355 feet per second. The LS-6, along with 33-inch axel-to-axel frame, 5-inch brace height, and 70% let off gives those chasing speed a lot to consider. It would be nice for Bear to add a few finish options to the mix. It is 2017 after all, and there are a ton of amazing patterns to choose from. The riser design may not be the best looking riser on the market either, but the functioning handle is nice, and the stabilizer mounting hole being away from the shooters hand does make any length stabilizer feel longer than it is. The LS-6 shoots well, holds on target great, and the new grip is a great feeling grip, which also promotes proper hand placement. For $899, the LS-6 is worth a shot for anyone wanting the absolute top in performance. For some shooters, higher performance allows them to cut down the overall draw weight of their bow. Other shooters like to shoot heavier arrows, so they get the most kinetic energy possible, and then others just like to use their top pin out as far as possible. Regardless of the reason why shooters are interested in a high performance bow like the LS-6, archers should have the LS-6 on their radar... read full review
