Version: 2007 Diamond Black Ice
Pros: Smooth shooting, quiet, easy to setup (draw length, pound pull)
Cons: medium speed,
Full review: Although the Black Ice is not one of the fastest bows on the market, it is the one of the easiest to shoot. With its 7 inch brace height and 32 axis to axis length, the Black Ice is a very forgiving bow. I am an average shooter, but because the bow is easy to shoot, I have improved my shooting skills and successfully bagged several animals since owning the black ice. The bow has a incredible bow cycle and easy to hold at full draw. Once you trigger your release, the bow does not snap at of your hand! There is no snap or torque. Many bows want to jump out of your hand after you release your string. The black ice does not. Lastly, Diamond/Bowtech have excellent suppot and customer service. I have personal experience working with their staff. They also returned my calls and answered all of my questions. Overall, I highly recommend the Black Ice bow. Models between 2007 and 2009 are identical. The 2010 model was slighlty different and the 2011 model was when Diamond introduced the new cable system. The black ice model is one of Diamond’s oldest model that remains unchanged, that is, because there is no need to change specs that work.
Pros: I like how this bow has very little hand shock, very little noise, the ease of changing the cams, the new (at the time) positive draw stop and the length and weight
Cons: I had a problem with fletchings clearance with the cables. I am also on my 3rd set of limbs. I dont really know if it was the limbs cracking or the finish cracking but I wasn’t taking that chance and got new limbs anyways
Full review: The black Ice is a great all around bow. I use it for both 3D and hunting. I like the size, weight and the lack of noise for hunting. The draw is very smooth and with the draw stop I know that I am at full draw everytime. The speed on the bow is in range of bows on the market today. The couple of problems that I have had are that I had a clearance problem with the cables and my fletchings. I have also had to replace the limbs on it twice. I don’t know if it was the actual limbs or just the finish but I changed them anyway. My overall opinion of the bow is excellent
Pros: Moocho forgiving, very quiet, and the smoothest draw cycle ever.
Cons: Not a super fast speed demon but if it was then I wouldn’t have all the pro’s I listed to write about.
Full review: Cosmetically the bow is very impressive with its modern curves. The bow sends arrows precisely to their mark….the most forgiving bow I’ve owned. It is super smooth to draw and the quietest fast compound I’ve ever shot. Lots of brace and enough a.t.a. to get tight groups at 50 plus yards. Affordable for the beginning archer too!!! Great job Diamond!!! This is a great bow….shoots much like a Mathews outback. This bow has everything except crazy speed. I arrowed several whitetails over 30 yards with this precise compound.
Version: 2008 Diamond Black Ice
Pros: Very forgiving, Smooth draw cycle, Solid backwall. Easy to hold on target.
Cons: Will not win any speed test.
Full review: The Black ICE to me is one of the best bows on the market today. One of the smoothest draw cycles you will find on anybow. Holds great on target with little to no jump after the shot. With a sloid backwall you will pull back into your anchor point everytime. It’s such a pleasure to shoot. I have harvested several animals with it anywhere from 15 yards all the way out to 40 yards. Easy to tune as well. Could not ask for anymore from this bow. I have the invelvet finish and after three years of some pretty hard hunting and lots of shooting at the range it shows no sign of wear. If you’re looking for an affordable bow that shoots great then look not further than the Diamond Black ICE. Would not trade this bow for any other bow on the market today. If Diamond came out with a Black ICE version that produced a little mroe speed that would be the only time I’d upgrade. Otherwise it’s my bow of choice for life…
