Editors' reviewBeing the flagship bow of the 2008 Diamond Archery line the Diamond Marquis is a good match for both tree stand and ground hunters. This bow has a good mix of long-distance accuracy and maneuverability as well as great stability and shootability.
RiserThe Diamond Marquis has a long riser making this bow more stable and accurate but not heavy. A longer riser contributes to a longer axle-to-axle length (34.5"). As a result the bow is more stable and accurate. The Diamond design team put their best efforts into making this bow as lightweight as possible. They managed to reduce the mass weight significantly by using a special lightweight aluminum and including many cutouts in the riser. In addition, the Marquis riser is sleek and narrow which further contributes to its reduced mass weight. Finally, this riser is designed to significantly reduce vertical torque and improve stability at full draw.
When it comes to the engine behind this bow, the Marquis features Diamond's Pinnacle5 single cam eccentric system capable of producing IBO speeds of up to 316-324 fps. Draw lengths are adjustable from 26" to 30" in half inch increments through a modular cam system. Once set up, the draw length can be further adjusted by a quarter inch through the cam adjustment system. Many archers agree the draw cycle is smooth enough and has a good blend of smoothness and aggressiveness. Lastly, let off can be adjusted from 65% to 75%.
Quietness and vibrationTo reduce vibration and noise the bow is equipped with a roller guard with an inbuilt string suppressor. In addition, this rig is designed to reduce hand shock as much as possible. Low shock and vibration are achieved through using pivoting limb pockets that help maintain precise orientation between the limbs and the riser. Needless to say, such design also adds overall stability. This is why many archers say this bow is very stable and has little shock and vibration.
SummaryTo summarize, the Diamond Marquis is a very stable compound bow with little shock and vibration. The eccentric system is very solid and is capable of generating blazing speeds of 316-324 fps. While it is not the most compact bow, it has little noise, shock, and vibration. This bow is a good choice for shooters who prefer different types of hunting or recreational activities.
