Diamond Edge SB-1 Review

The Bottom Line:Diamond Archery has caused an uproar in the industry by not only putting out an impressive shooting machine, but by including a full blown website devoted to the owners who purchase this bow, helping them turn their own allen wrenches before running to a local shop or dealer. For nearly half the price of a modern flagship compound, any individuals looking to get into the sport get an impressive package; the SB-1 totes an extremely adjustable design as well as provides a solid shooting platform from the beginning. With the addition of some silencing accessories and a nicer grip, this would become the bow to be at the side of everyone getting into the sport, or even at the hands of someone looking to upgrade from a different model... read full review

Diamond Deploy
User rating:

Diamond Deploy Review

The Bottom Line:The Diamond Deploy SB is a new bow built on an old platform; the Knight riser. The new limbs and cams provide plenty of speed (330 fps) and accuracy, draw length adjustability (27" - 30.5"), and an overall draw weight range from 40# - 70#. With a respectable price point of $650 for the base bow and $750 for the Ready Aim Kill package, this very smooth shooting bow is something everyone should look forward to shooting... read full review

Diamond Provider Review

The Bottom Line:Diamond Archery is known for making a large range of compounds, from their extremely adjustable series to their mainline and flagship models alike. Their new-for-2016 Provider continues this lineup with a beneficial single cam setup to allow for ease of adjustment as well as providing tuning longevity, plus it features a very forgiving brace height and a reasonable overall IBO of 310fps. For roughly half the price (and nearly half the overall weight) of a flagship model at a $499 MSRP, any archer would be happy with a setup with such adjustability, assortment of features, and specs to fit the needs of a reliable hunting rig... read full review

Diamond Infinite Edge Pro Review

The Bottom Line:While the Infinite Edge revolutionized the bow market last year, Diamond Archery has answered the call once again, providing a similar bow with many important upgrades. For half the price of a typical flagship hunting or target bow, archers can now purchase a bow that can technically last them their whole life. 65lbs of draw weight and 18" of draw length adjustment with a simple allen wrench is an impressive feat, especially with the retention of a high quality draw cycle at all settings. With a decent factory suppression system, well-engineered cams, a few solid finish options, and the option for long draw shooters to shoot the above average 31" draw, this bow should be seriously considered as both a first bow and as an upgrade from an archer's first... read full review

Diamond Atomic Review

The Bottom Line:For a starter bow, the Atomic is a hard one to beat. Archery is a wonderful sport, and part of the experience is passing the tradition on to others. Who better to share the sport with than children? The Atomic is designed to look like an adult bow, and does that very well, while keeping great shootability characteristics. The Atomic is extremely adjustable and will be able to grow with shooters as they become bigger and stronger. The accessories are great ones, although some ma prefer a removable quiver instead of the included two-piece. For $199, the pure joy and excitement of passing on the wonderful tradition of archery to a brand new shooter will be worth every penny of the purchase price... read full review

Diamond Toxik XT Review

The Bottom Line:The Diamond (Redhead) Toxik XT is a very good rig for the hunter. With a 32" ATA, 7" brace height, 26" - 30.5" draw length, and 320 fps, this bow is definitely built to meet any hunting challenge, but can easily be found on the 3D course too. With a price of $499, it is affordable for most archers and will not disappoint. To top it off, although it is sold as a member of the Redhead line, you still get the Bowtech quality and warranty, since Diamond is a product of Bowtech... read full review

Diamond Core Review

The Bottom Line:The Diamond Core is a 31" shooting platform with a 7.25" brace height, adjustable from 25" - 30," can be purchased with 50#, 60#, or 70# peak weight limbs, and packs a solid 31 fps. Although this is slow by today's standards, it packs plenty of punch to satisfy even the most hard core hunter. It is super smooth and extremely quiet. The only complaints anyone has had with this rig was with some of the components that are part of the R.A.K. package, specifically the rest and the sights. Do not let this divert your attention to a very nice bow at a very nice price... read full review

Diamond Blackout Review

The Bottom Line:The Diamond Blackout is a fine bow designed for Bass Pro Shops and tagged under the Redhead brand name. Other than the grip, it is hard to find something not to like about the Blackout as a hunting bow. For shooters on a budget and looking at a great quality, simple bow, the Blackout is more than worthy of a test shot... read full review

Diamond Carbon Cure

Diamond Carbon Cure Review

The Bottom Line:The Diamond Carbon Cure is a new hunting bow for the 2014 lineup. This rig is a 32" ATA, 7" brace height, single-cam bow that give the shooter an accurate shooting platform. It will work well on the 3D course, but is designed for hunting and fits excellently in a tree stand or ground blind. With a 325 fps, it is fast enough to meet any archery challenge, and feels good in the hand while doing it.Retailing at $650, it is priced right. It is also adjustable - 27" - 30.5" draw length and 50# - 70# draw weight. The bow is easily adjusted and can be done without a bow press. This is not a bow to overlook... read full review

Diamond Fear No Evil Review

The Bottom Line:The Diamond Fear No Evil was created in partnership with Chris Brackett and Fear No Evil TV to be sold through Dick's Sporting Goods. As expected by any Diamond product, it continues to carry the typical Bowtech/Diamond quality that we've come to expect. This Diamond was part of the 2013 line and provides the shooter with a solid performing rig producing a reliable, accurate, and respectable 343 fps IBO.This single-cam bow comes with several features that only enhance the shooting experience. From the 32" ATA, 6 1/8" brace height, light weight, and speed, this rig will fit comfortably in any shooters hand. It does have a fairly stiff draw, but it is smooth, and easy to hold once let-off is reached. This bow should not be overlooked... read full review

Diamond Regulator

Diamond Regulator Review

The Bottom Line:The pairing of two giant brands Cabela's and Bowtech went very well with the final product being an affordable, easy to shoot Regulator. The camo model leaves a little to be desired in terms of looks, but the bow flat out shoots and with the ease of adjustment featured on the Regulator, growing shooters may have found a solid rig to grow with them. Shooters other than beginners may decide to accessorize the bow a little differently than the factory offerings, but this can still be done under what many premium bows on the market today cost. For $549 completely outfitted, the Regulator deserves some respect for a great combination of value and performance... read full review

Diamond Instigator Review

The Bottom Line:The Diamond Instigator is designed in a way that allows the entire family to use it with only minor adjustments that can be done at home. Ideally, the budget friendly Instigator would be purchased for a younger shooter that has a lot of growing left to do. With tons of available adjustments for draw weight and draw length; the bow can grow as rapidly as the shooter. Adults interested in a new bow may want to take a look at a few other budget bows before making the final decision. The made in USA Instigator will shoot well, but should get a test shot first just to make sure... read full review

Diamond Sub Atomic Review

The Bottom Line:The Diamond Sub-Atomic is a bow designed with simplicity in mind. When getting new shooters involved in archery, it is important to allow them to be successful. New shooters will have no trouble learning how to shoot the Sub-Atomic, and may have a great time learning how the bow works by putting it together out of the box. Although the rig does not use a cam system to fling arrows downrange, it serves as one of the best learning tools for new shooters... read full review

Diamond Kronik XT Review

The Bottom Line:For an accessorized bow with a price under $400, it is hard to find anything wrong with the Kronik XT. It is not an industry leader in any category, but it does most things very well. The minor issues with the bow fall under personal preference, and what some do not like others will love. With a forgiving brace height and an easy draw cycle, the Kronik is going to win over a lot of shooters from those just starting out, to those just wanting an upgrade. If the Kronik XT hit speeds around 320 feet per second, it would be much more desired, but 305 feet per second is still plenty for most hunters' needs. All of this shootability for under $400 is hard to turn down. Those close to a Bass Pro Shop interested in a lightweight, compact hunting bow should give the Kronik XT a shot... read full review

Diamond Infinite Edge Review

The Bottom Line:The Diamond Infinite Edge has revolutionized the bow market. The bow is easy to shoot whether the shooter is 5-years old or 55-years old. Without a bow press, and with only a couple of wrenches, the Infinite Edge can easily be adjusted from five pounds to 70 pounds draw weight and 13" to 30" draw length making it an excellent choice for any shooter. With a speed up to 310 fps and a RTH price of only $479, this bow is definitely affordable. The dual-cam setup is not too aggressive, making it easy to draw. The 75 percent let-off makes it easy to hold on target even for the inexperienced shooter... read full review

Diamond Outlaw Review

The Bottom Line:Overall with the way this bow is priced this is a solid choice for 2011. The Outlaw gives you a good shooting, fast and accurate bow at an economy price. When combined with the R.A.K package this offers you and very convenient and versatile package that will appeal to many archers this year. Even though the bow has a slight vibration when shot with the addition of some vibration dampening components should solve that and make this a very shootable bow. Whether you are just starting out or you are a seasoned archer not looking to break the bank the 2011 Diamond Outlaw is a very solid choice... read full review

Diamond Dead Eye

Diamond Dead Eye Review

The Bottom Line:The Diamond Dead Eye is a single cam speed-hunting bow. Those shooters interested in fast shooting rigs packed with a lot of kinetic energy will be impressed with the Dead Eye. For shooters not comfortable with an aggressive draw cycle, there may be better options available. The Throttle cam offers a ton of adjustability without a bow press. The minimal hand shock noticed after the shot can easily be eliminated with a front mounting stabilizer, and the aggressive cycle does get easier with time. With the available R.A.K. accessory package, shooters have the option to fully accessorize their bow with a great package at a reasonable price. Those shooters wanting to shoot a speed-hunting bow should give the Diamond Dead Eye a shot... read full review

Diamond Fugitive Review

The Bottom Line:Overall the Diamond Fugitive this rig would be a very solid choice. Whether you are an avid archer on a budget or a beginner this is a very affordable and feature packed set up. Durable, fast and quiet this bow has a lot to offer the archer whether you are a bow hunter or want a bow for 3D shooting. Even though the draw cycle is more on the harsh side, once at full draw the back wall is extremely solid and with the high let off you can hold this bow for a good period of time. In conclusion if you are looking for a fast, quiet and accurate rig with a very affordable price tag the Diamond Fugitive could be a great fit for you... read full review

Diamond Nuclear Ice Review

The Bottom Line:The Diamond Nuclear Ice is one of the best youth bows suitable for small kids from 4 to 10 years old. A lot of experts and archery enthusiasts agree this is one of the best youth bows on the market. They say the Nuclear Ice is a very well made bow that delivers exceptional performance and has a nice look and feel. Although this is a youth bow, it looks "like a Dad's bow" due to beyond parallel limbs, fully machined aluminum riser, and efficient cam system. Being extremely adjustable, the bow does not require a bow press or additional modules for changing the draw length. Overall, the Nuclear Ice comes with a very low price tag, yet it is one of the best quality youth bows out there... read full review
