Hoyt REDWRX Carbon RX-3 Turbo
Editor review:

The RX-3 Turbo is a compact speed bow, with some of the best technology on the market today. Shooters will benefit from the carbon riser design in a lot of ways, and the new cams have an outstanding feeling. The Hoyt RX-3 Turbo has been tweaked for the better by getting a new riser design, new cams, an improved adjustable grip, and arguably the best shooting experience a Hoyt carbon has ever offered. In addition to this, it is offered in a ton of popular colors and camo options, and can be further customized for an additional $100 to get something different straight from the factory. All of this comes at a price though, both literally and figuratively. The bow has an MSRP of $1699, which is the highest price for a Hoyt hunting bow ever. It is so high, a shooter could easily purchase an aluminum riser Hoyt, and deck it out with some high end hunting accessories for almost the same price. However, if shooters are interested in more speed, as the Turbo has to offer, Hoyt does not offer an aluminum series Turbo model, so carbon is the only option for shooters wanting that. The 31-inch axle-to-axle may be too compact for some shooters as well. Historically, shorter draw guys have been drawn to the Turbo models, so it makes sense to offer in a more compact design. However, the longer version of the Turbo measuring 33-inches arguably appealed to more shooters. The final major con has to do with the carbon riser. In the past, carbon bows were marketed for their superior overall weight to strength properties. This meant the carbon risers were lighter, and therefore easier to pack in the mountains. The new carbon Turbo is heavier than 4-pounds with all the dampeners installed, which is not any lighter than many aluminum riser bows. For other shooters, this could end up being a deal breaker. Overall, the RX-3 Turbo is arguably the best carbon Turbo bow Hoyt has ever made, and anyone able to afford this rig will be pleased with all the new designs and integrated technology it offers... read full review
