Hoyt Faktor 34 Review

The Bottom Line: The bottom line for choosing a bow always comes down to each individual shooter. However, the Faktor 34 is going to be a winner for many interested in a longer axel-to-axel bow with the ability to be used as a multipurpose shooter. Shooters will need a high quality stabilizer to tone the hand shock down a bit as it is noticeable without accessories added to the bow. However, most shooters are already doing this anyways, and after the stabilizer has been added, the shock is virtually a non-issue. The price tag is a bit steep for many shooters, but for a high-end bow with this many technologies, it is comparable to the price for other manufacturers flagship offerings. The Faktor 34 is worthy of a test shot for anyone wanting a top of the line bow that has the ability to do it all...read full review

Hoyt Carbon Spyder Turbo Review

The Bottom Line: Hoyt is finally offering a third style bow in the carbon riser series. In the past, Hoyt has stuck with a longer version and a shorter model, but never the Turbo. The long awaited addition of a speed bow in the carbon riser series is something never seen before. The only way to experience the performance is to give the bow a shot. It is hard to find anything wrong with this bow as a multipurpose shooter. The downside is the huge price tag, which is going to be way over budget for many shooters. Those not worried about price, and simply looking for the best shooting bow, will love what the Hoyt Carbon Spyder Turbo preforms and feels like. The final decision whether or not the bow is worth the money lies with each individual shooter...read full review

Hoyt Faktor 30 Review

The Bottom Line: Hoyt has established themselves as being one of the elite bow companies because of integrating useful technology that simply works. The new Faktor 30 is yet another addition that is going to be a top seller for 2014. The bow uses every technology Hoyt has except for the carbon riser technology, including the redesigned Z5 cam system. For a short axel to axel hunting bow, it is hard to find something better than the Faktor 30. The price may be a bit expensive for some shooters on a budget, but with all the engineering that went in to making this bow, combined with the backing of a huge company like Hoyt, it may be worth saving a while longer to upgrade to this bow...read full review

Hoyt Faktor Turbo Review

The Bottom Line: The Hoyt Faktor Turbo is a great addition to a popular offering in the Hoyt lineup since the Turbo model was introduced. Shooters owning last year's Turbo model may not have a reason to update based on cost alone, but there are enough differences in feel and shootability to warrant the upgrade if money is not an issue. Overall, the Faktor Turbo is going to make a great multipurpose bow for hunting and 3D. Anyone in the market for a new bow should give this one a test shot...read full review

Hoyt Carbon Spyder 30 Review

The Bottom Line: It is really hard to find anything wrong with the Carbon Spyder 30. When holding the bow, shooters will immediately notice how well engineered it is. After shooting the bow, they will be amazed at how dead and quite it is while still having some really great performance. However, price is going to be a huge deterrent for shooters not leaving the store with the new Hoyt carbon bow. Even those that can afford the bow are going to have a hard time paying an additional $400 on top of an already expensive flagship offering in the Faktor series. Is the extra money worth it? Only the shooter can decide. Those purchasing the Carbon Spyder 30 will be very pleased at how well it performs, but the market for those who can afford it has been significantly reduced with the $1399 price tag...read full review

Hoyt Carbon Spyder 34 Review

The Bottom Line: Those not worried about money or on an unlimited budget are going to love the Carbon Spyder 34. This bow is perfect for 3D and hunting and will be a fantastic multipurpose bow. The biggest drawback for this Hoyt bow is the price. Aside from that, it is very difficult to find anything wrong with the bow that can do it all. The increased strength, forgiving brace height, and decent speeds are sure to improve accuracy for many shooters as well. Is the price tag worth the bow? Only shooters can make that decision for themselves...read full review

Hoyt Charger Review

The Bottom Line: The Charger is a wonderful performing bow, and for the price it is hard to beat. This bow performs like a much higher end model and those thinking it is an introductory level bow are mistaken. Please do not let the price of the Charger fool you into thinking it is not a worthy option. With tons of customization, the Charger matches what many shooters are looking for in a compact, forgiving, lightweight hunting bow. Shooters interested in what Hoyt has to offer for 2013 should give the Charger a test shot. Although it may not be the bow for everyone, shooters wallets will thank them if it happens to be. The ready to shoot package is also a great option for shooters who just want to get out and start shooting...read full review

Hoyt Spyder 30 Review

The Bottom Line: Hoyt has always produced great shooting bows, and the Sypder is no exception to that. Hunting bows are getting shorter and shorter to meet the demands of a lot of hunters, and this bow does just that. With a lightweight frame of 3.8 pounds, tons of adjustability, and easily tuned, the Spyder is a great option for shooters not on a budget. The smooth drawing RKT cams are also able to hit advertised speeds without being super tuned as well. Although the handshock produced after shooting this bow is not a deal breaker, shooters interested in a short axel to axel hunting bow have lots of options available to them and should give them all a shot before making a final decision...read full review

Hoyt Tribute Review

The Bottom Line: The Hoyt Tribute is a throwback from days gone by with its longer than normal riser and the 45" axle-to-axle designed primarily for the finger shooter. This bow has the feel of a traditional bow and the technology of a compound bow. It can also be shot with a release, so almost anyone can shoot this bow. It can be adjusted as low as 30# all the way up to 70# and can be shot in any situation although most shooters prefer to keep in mainly on the 3D course or just as a target bow.The added weight of this bow aids in the vibration dampening and allows it to be held on target with less movement most get when trying to hold a lighter bow on the "x ring." There is nothing that says this bow is only for targets though. It is very effective as a hunting bow also. The shooter just needs to know his surroundings to make sure there are no low hanging limbs or maybe even a shooting rail on the stand, as each can hit the limbs of the bow affecting your hunting situation. If you are one of those that likes the feel of the traditional bows, but you like the compounds too, this could be the bow for you as it melds the feel of each in a quality piece of workmanship for all to enjoy...read full review

Hoyt Spyder Turbo Review

The Bottom Line: Despite being designed as a hunting bow, the Spyder Turbo makes a great multipurpose rig for those wanting a bow that can handle all shooting situations. With an overall weight of 4 pounds and an axel-to-axel measurement of 34-inches, the Turbo is easy to pack in on long walks to the stand. Powered by the smooth drawing RKT cams and achievable speeds of 340 feet per second, the Turbo shoots like a dream and has plenty of technologies to back up its design. Shooters already owning the Vector Turbo from last year may not have much need for an upgrade, but those in the market for a new bow capable of being used in a variety of situations should give the Turbo a shot...read full review

Hoyt Spyder 34 Review

The Bottom Line: Hoyt compacted their popular 35-inch model to 34-inches. Although this may not seem like a large difference, the demand for a shorter bow has been addressed. Those who have adjusted to the shorter valley love the smooth drawing RKT cams. With tons of adjustability and color options available, the Spyder 34 makes a wonderful multipurpose bow designed for hunting but capable of performing well on the range. Shooters in the market for a bow that is versatile should give the Spyder 34 a shot...read full review

Hoyt Vector 32 Review

The Bottom Line: The Hoyt Vector 32 is a really great option for those in the market for a new hunting bow. Hoyt uses a lot of useful technology and innovation to make sure this bow will last a very long time and perform flawlessly. Shooters have the option to personalize their grip and finish options to match their shooting needs. With achievable IBO speeds and a perfectly balanced feel the Vector 32 should be added to added to the list of bows to try out. For those on a strict budget, the Vector 32 may not be an option because of a rather large price tag. However, shooters not on a budget and able to try out the 2012 lineup may be surprised with how well this bow shoots. No matter what type of shooter you are, the Hoyt Vector 32 has something to offer...read full review

Hoyt Carbon Element Review

The Bottom Line: The Carbon Element is a very quiet bow with great shootability characteristics. While it could be a bit faster, its innovative riser design along with a very smooth draw cycle and efficient silencing package make it a great shooting bow. Very lightweight, forgiving, and perfectly balanced, even a bare Carbon Element delivers very quiet shots with virtually no hand shock or vibration whatsoever. While it still has a higher price tag, the Carbon Element is much more affordable than the ever popular and very similar Carbon Matrix. Built with very innovative, effective, and proven technologies, the Carbon Element is admittedly one of the best shooting hunting bows in 2011...read full review

Hoyt AlphaElite Review

The Bottom Line: The new Hoyt AlphaElite is a very solid and great good shooting bow suitable for different types of archery including 3D shooting, outdoor target shooting, and hunting. As noted by many shooters, the Alpha Elite aims and holds very well and has a very solid back wall. While the draw cycle is a bit stiff it is smooth and not harsh at all. The bow is equipped with an adjustable eccentric system capable of generating IBO speeds of up to 320 fps. With virtually no hand shock, this bow is very quiet on releasing the arrow. While it is not the cheapest bow out there, the AlphaElite is a great shooting rig available in many nice target colors and suitable for 3D / outdoor target shooting and hunting...read full review

Hoyt ProHawk Review

The Bottom Line: The Hoyt Pro hawk isn't the quietest, most vibration free bow out there. But for value price tag, this bow could be easily affordable to almost anyone. With a draw weight range from 20 to 60 pounds this bow could easily appeal to women, children, beginners or anyone who doesn't care to shoot the heavier poundage. This bow could have less vibration but with the addition of some vibration dampening components, it would make it quieter and improve shoot ability. This is a very easy drawing bow that has a smooth draw and has a very adjustable draw length system. Overall for a beginner or a hunter on a budget, you seemingly can't go wrong with this rig with a very low price tag...read full review

The Bottom Line: The Hoyt Carbon Matrix is an extremely quiet and great shooting bow.

Even a bare Carbon Matrix is dead in the hand and has no hand shock or vibration. In addition, this is a very lightweight and well balanced bow with a lot of forgiveness. While it's a high quality rig with innovative design, its high price tag will not fit everyone's budget.

Hoyt Contender Review

The Bottom Line: The Hoyt Contender series is another high quality bow that is full of options that should accommodate most shooters. With almost more axle to axle and brace height options to list this is one of the most customizable bows on the market these days. Also, the three cam selections paired with two different lengths of limbs, it's almost too much to keep everything straight in your head before making a choice of what to buy. You just have to make sure if you are after speed and if you're willing to give up some noise and vibration or do you want something that is going to be smooth shooting...read full review

Hoyt Vector 35 Review

The Bottom Line: Hoyt has really upped their game with the 2012 lineup. Many new technologies have made some of the best bows on earth even better. This fine piece of equipment is well suited for the hunter than prefers a longer axle to axle, or, the 3D and competition shooter that needs a rock steady bow to bring home the checks. The smooth draw cycle will make it easy to smoothly draw back on that weary buck, and the dead quiet release this bow showcases makes it the ultimate hunting rig. Finally, Hoyt opened the door to a variety of consumers by offering the Vector Long Draw. In short, no matter what type of archer you are, do yourself a favor and shoot the Hoyt Vector, it will surely end up in your stable soon after...read full review

Hoyt Vector Turbo Review

The Bottom Line: The Vector Turbo was a huge surprise. Some speed bows are known for nasty draw cycles, unforgiving brace heights and creep as bad as Freddy Kruger. Forget about those expectations, the Turbo is perfect. Hunters who previously avoided speed bows because they worried of holding back an aggressive bow for long periods, stop, things have changes. The speed capabilities of the Vector Turbo will allow you to extend your range and put the smack down on the buck that in years passed would have lived another day. Get to your Hoyt dealer and shoot this bow for yourself, you'll be very surprised to see what this speed bow can do...read full review

Hoyt CRX 32 Review

The Bottom Line: The Hoyt CRX 32 is a lightweight, compact, and well balanced bow with extremely low vibration and great shootability characteristics. While this rig is considered to be an enhanced version of the ever popular Maxxis 31, it's a better shooting bow at a lower price. Still, it's not the cheapest bow out there, but is definitely one of the best quality rigs introduced in 2011. Shooters strongly agree the CRX 32 is a perfectly balanced, accurate, and smooth bow that is dead in the hand. With a wide draw weight range (40-90 lbs), this rig is a great choice for all hunters who like to own high quality rigs with great shootability characteristics...read full review
