G5 Quest Primal Review
content from YouTube
Editors' reviewThe Quest Primal is the flagship bow of the 2010 G5 line. Admittedly, this is a very good shooting bow with perfect fit and finish. Smooth on the draw. Interestingly, some shooters strongly believe this is one of the most underrated and overlooked bows in 2010.
FinishTo begin with, the finish on all 2010 G5 Quest bows is immaculate. The proprietary GFade decorating process delivers superior image quality and durability. We were overwhelmed with the amount of very positive comments indicating the finish on this rig is awesome. Without a doubt the Primal is a great looking bow.
RiserThe riser is 100% machined forged and is made of 6061-T6 aluminum - one of the best materials in the industry. Both high quality material and efficient manufacturing process help make the riser very strong while reducing the overall mass weight.
GripNo major complaints were identified in regard to the grip while analyzing multiple reviews and tests. In opposite, a lot of people confirmed this two piece laminated wood grip is thin, nice, and pretty comfortable. Some archers say it's one of the best in the industry. Let's not forget that this is a matter of personal preference though. So the best way to find out whether or not this grip will suit your shooting style is to shoot this bow.
Strings and I-Glide cable systemThe Primal comes with the Metrao strings which are known for their high quality and durability. Another interesting innovation on this bow is the I-Glide cable system that is designed such that the wear on the cable is reduced significantly.
Eccentric systemG5 powers the Quest Primal with its smooth-drawing Twin Track SYNC modular cam system, advertised to hit IBO speeds of up to 332 feet per second. The numerous tests carried out by experts prove that this bow meets its advertised IBO speeds.
The draw length can be adjusted from 26.5 to 30 inches in 1/2 inch increments via a set of interchangeable modules. The only thing that doesn't make this performance system perfectly flexible is that the bow needs to be pressed and cables need to be taken out to change out the modules.
Continuing with the eccentrics, the Twin TRAC cam system is equipped with dual stops making for a very solid back wall. Also, the let-off on the Quest Primal is 80%.
