G5 Quest QS33 Review
content from YouTube
Editors' reviewIn 2008 G5 started producing its own line of bows under the name Quest Bowhunting. One of the first was the QS33. Combining the 33" axle to axle length with the very forgiving 7 1/2" brace height, makes the QS33 into a very accurate shooting bow with one of the smoother draw cycles you will ever shoot. Quest has produced a solid, well built, hunting bow that packs features you would expect to see in a bows that cost much more.
RiserThe QS33's riser is forged from 6016-T6 aluminum. CNC-machining to the riser gives it shape and produces the cutouts in the riser that are designed to maintain strength and integrity but also make the overall bow very lightweight at 3.9lbs
Limbs-to-Riser ConnectionLimbs of the QS33 are connected to the riser with pivoting and locking limb pockets forged from 6016-T6 aluminum and then CNC machined. To adjust draw weight the limb pockets must first be loosened at the pivot point. This allows the entire limb pocket to maintain its contact with the limb no matter what the draw weight is set at.
GripThe Quest QS33 uses two side plates made of wood laminate for its grip. Engineers have carved a groove for the shooters thumb in each grip to give perfect, consistent hand placement for every draw. However, if you move your hand at all you will get some hand induced torque. Most shooters will find this grip to be quite comfortable.
Eccentric SystemThe QS33 meets advertised IBO speeds of 310-314 fps. While this may not be the fastest, these speeds are nothing to be laughed at for a single cam bow from 2008-2009. Hunting weight arrows can be expected to be around 290 +/- fps depending on draw length and weight of the arrow.
The QS Single Cam system should be largely credited for the very smooth draw cycle the QS33 boasts. While draw length is adjustable only in 1" increments, the use of only an allen wrench makes it easy to switch out the module to obtain the correct draw length. These cams also allow the QS33 to have 80% let-off which helps a hunter to be able to hold at full draw for long periods of time.
