Bowtech RPM 360 Review

The Bottom Line: The Bowtech RPM 360 is marketed as a speed bow, but do not let that fool you. This rig offers an IBO of 360 fps, which initially will turn the average hunter away, because something that produces that much speed cannot be a good hunting bow because it has to be loud and have lots of vibration, right? Wrong. This bow is super quiet out of the box, with minimal vibration. If you install a stabilizer, then that little bit of vibration is gone, and you now have a quiet, fast, and accurate bow that you can hunt with, or shoot competition with and not destroy your shoulders or rip your arms off while you shoot. With a variety of color schemes, a 7" brace height, 24" - 30" draw length, and a 50# - 70# draw weight, this bow has been touted as the best bow ever put out by Bowtech. One shooter demonstrated his rig set at 61# and 28" draw length and a 322 grain arrow, consistently shot 323 fps - easily within IBO specs. It may just be time to give this bow a try...read full review

Bowtech Carbon Overdrive Review

The Bottom Line: The Bowtech Carbon Overdrive seems to have everything that a hunter would want. Although it has dual cams to produce great speed it still has a very smooth draw that feels great. The back wall isn't super hard, but locks in nice. It is fairly quiet at the shot and seems to be spot on with its accuracy. It has a great look with more of a basic style than some of the other carbon bows available today. This bow seems to be priced right with an MSRP of $999...read full review

Bowtech Experience Review

The Bottom Line: From a shooting standpoint, it is hard to find flaws with the Bowtech Experience. Everything feels great, and the bow performs very well. Hopefully Bowtech has corrected the limb peeling issue for 2013, which would take away a major reason for shooters being hesitant on making the purchase. With a $999 suggested MSRP tag, the archery market definitely offers less expensive bows for shooters on a budget. However, if budget is not a concern, it will be tough to beat what the Experience has to offer...read full review

Bowtech Insanity CPXL Review

The Bottom Line: The Bowtech Insanity CPXL uses a lot of Bowtech engineering to create a nice shooting bow. Offering a 7-inch brace height, a 35-inch axel-to axel measurement, and IBO speeds up to 340 feet per second, the CPXL is a great bow sure to appeal to a lot of shooters. It appears that Bowtech has addressed the finish issues this year, but only time will tell if the finish will withstand everyday use. For shooters on a strict budget, the suggested retail price of $1049 may be tough to manage. However, shooters interested in a multipurpose bow that draws smooth and shoots well, the CPXL would be a great on to add to the wish list...read full review

Bowtech Specialist Review

The Bottom Line: The Bowtech Specialist is a very high performance up and coming target bow. A long axle to axle, a good brace height and great IBO speed are all ingredients that make a great target bow that is very forgiving and capable of competing with some of the top target bows of the world. The Specialist uses a binary cam system making it a smooth drawing bow that is easy to adjust and has virtually no timing issues. Tuning may need to be done by a professional but once it is set up there should be no problems keeping it that way. With a number of color options to choose from, it's a bow that can look good while putting great numbers up on the score card...read full review

Bowtech Carbon Knight Review

The Bottom Line: Bowtech is joining the party with short axel-to-axel hunting bows in a lightweight package. With suburb tunability, and tons of available adjustment, the Carbon Knight is an excellent choice for those in the market for a trendy hunting bow. Although the $849 price tag may be a little steep for some, and the late release date may have caught people off guard, this Bowtech should be an option for anyone on the market...read full review

Bowtech Destroyer LE Review

The Bottom Line: This Destroyer 350 limited edition is hands down a shooter. It is hard to find things unpleasant about this bow. Those in the market for a speed bow should give this rig a chance even though it doesn't have any brand new gimmicky technology. The bottom line is the destroyer 350 is built to perform. The $849 suggested price tag from the Bowtech site may be a little steep for some, but it does have the same cam used on Bowtech's brand new 2013 bow as well. The bow shoots very well, but shooters will have to decide if a newly released version of an older bow is worth the money...read full review

Bowtech Insanity CPX Review

The Bottom Line: The Insanity CPX combines their fast shooting technology from the Destroyer 350 with the popular Center Pivot limb technology to create a fast shooting shock free bow. There is not a lot to dislike about this bow other than the potential finish issues from the past, which have not impact on how great the bow shoots. However, for the money, the bow should not have any finish flaws. The great news is that the finish has been updated from that of year's past, so only time will tell if the new finish has cured the peeling issues. Regardless, the Insanity CPX is a great shooting bow that offers fast speeds, a smooth draw and solid back wall, with a dead in the hand release. Shooters interested in a speed bow should add the Insanity CPX to their list of bows to try out...read full review

Bowtech Assassin Review

The Bottom Line: Designed with proven Bowtech technologies and equipped with a very attractive ready-to-shoot package, the Bowtech Assassin is a good shooting hunting bow at a very affordable price. With an extremely flexible eccentric system, the draw length on the Assassin can be easily adjusted without using a bow press or any extra cams or modules. In addition, the performance system is designed to be equipped with either smooth or fast rotating module thus allowing for choosing the right combination of smoothness and speed. While some shooters can feel a little hump closer to the end of the draw cycle, others either don't feel it for their setups or say it's not pronounced. The Assassin has a pretty good valley and extremely solid back wall. While the Assassin is a very good hunting bow for beginners, it will also be a great choice for advanced shooters who want to save money. Overall, the Assassin is one of the best bows for the money in 2011...read full review

Bowtech HeartBreaker Review

The Bottom Line: The Bowtech Heartbreaker has been marketed as a women's bow, but is also a bow designed for archers with short draw lengths. Some say that is the same bow as the Bowtech Assassin except it has a pink color scheme option. The bow comes with a 30.25" ATA and a very forgiving 7" brace height and a strong binary cam system meld together to produce a quiet, fast, vibration free, and accurate piece of archery gear for the hunter or the target shooter. There has been some mention of the finish peeling in high contact areas such as around the grip, or the limbs. If you are a female archer, or if you just have a short draw length, if you are in the market for a new bow then you owe it to yourself to give the Heartbreaker a shot or two. It may save you some time and effort...read full review

Bowtech Assassin SD Review

The Bottom Line: The Bowtech Assassin SD was introduced to the lineup in 2012 to bring in a new dimension of hunters by offering a fast, accurate, and affordable bow to those with shorter draw lengths. The team at Bowtech decided to take the Assassin and outfit it to accommodate those archers. This culminated into the production of the Assassin SD. This rig provides the same characteristics of quality, speed, and accuracy of the Assassin, but specifically designed for those with a 22.5" - 27" draw length. This is not a beginner's bow though. This bow can be purchased with limb weights of 40#, 50#, 60#, or 70#. This rig also offers a 305 fps IBO. It has also been chrono'd at 297 fps at 27" and 60#. This bow is easy to tune and will give the shooter exactly what they are looking for in a hunting rig...read full review

Bowtech Invasion CPX Review

The Bottom Line: The BowTech Invasion CPX really is a flagship bow. It truly stands alone with a very impressive design by combining the speed and quiet nature comparable to the 2010 Destroyer Series and the shootability of any of BowTech's Center Pivot models packed into a short axle to axle bow of just over 31". Although probably not for a beginner, an intermediate archer could quickly adapt to the benefits of the accurate, stable and forgiving riser design. Any archer drawing above or below 28" could comfortably shoot this bow due to its 7" brace height. The combination of the speed, shootibility and, remarkable long range accuracy not normally found in a short bow will make the Invasion CPX stand out in the hunting world, but also may end up in the hands of some 3-D shooters as well...read full review

Bowtech Destroyer 340 Review

The Bottom Line: The Destroyer 340 is an excellent shooting speed bow with minimal shock, vibration, and noise at the shot. This lightweight and well balanced bow has a smooth (but relatively stiff) draw cycle for a speed bow. While the eccentric system is modular-adjustable, a bow press is needed to adjust the draw length. Although this is not the best bow for beginners (unless you are willing to put the time and effort into learning how to shoot this rig well), the Destroyer 340 is a great choice for average and experienced shooters who like quality rigs with great performance and aggressive styling...read full review

Bowtech Destroyer 350 Review

The Bottom Line: The Destroyer 350 is a very fast and great shooting rig with minimal vibration, shock, and noise at the shot. This is a lightweight and well balanced rig that has a smooth (but relatively stiff) draw cycle for a speed bow. While the eccentric system is modular-adjustable, a bow press is required to change the draw length. Due to its aggressive styling, the Destroyer 350 is probably not the best choice for beginners (unless beginners are happy to put the time and effort into learning how to shoot this bow well). On the other hand, this bow is a great choice for experienced shooters who like top quality speed rigs with great performance and without noise...read full review

Bowtech SWAT Review

The Bottom Line: The SWAT is a fantastic offering by Bowtech with hardly any negatives at all. The hush kit effectiveness is great, but after market kits seem to last a bit longer than the factory installed kit. Aside from the, everything about the SWAT rig stands out as being well done. With adjustability options to fit almost every shooter, the SWAT will prove to be the bow of choice for many shooters. Like most decision with archery, only a test shot of the bow will give shooters an idea of how they feel about it and if it will be going to a new home...read full review

Bowtech Brigadier Review

The Bottom Line: The Brigadier took the reigns as the target bow for Bowtech in 2009 and has everything that a shooter is looking for; if they aren't looking for a rocket ship. This is a high end, high performance competition target bow released to replace the late and great Bowtech Constitution. With a great brace height and a long axle to axle make for a very forgiving target bow. With some pretty unique color options this bow is a real head turner (Especially the Testarossa). To go along with being a very forgiving bow this is also a bow that is very steady and it has next to no recoil; it's practically dead in the hand after release, even though it may not be whisper quiet. The equipment that Bowtech put on this bow all come together to make a complete target package that stacks up against some of the most winning bow companies in the business...read full review
