Hoyt Nitrum 30 Review

The Bottom Line: The Nitrum 30 is a well-designed bow that shoots like a dream and supplies a great deal of kinetic energy for hunting situations. The Nitrum's vibration after the shot is corrected with the added weight of accessories and a stabilizer, but when shooting bare bow there will be a little ring in the shooters hand. The Zero Torque Cable Guard System is a neat concept as well, and when paired with the riser cage and a bit of an offset in the top of the riser, the Nitrum should be easy to set up as well. With Hoyt, shooters will always be able to posted speed rating straight out of the box, which is great news for those on the market. Although 332 feet per second (ATA) is a decent speed number, those really wanting blistering speeds may be a little disappointed. Overall, the final decision is a personal choice, but the Nitrum 30 is a great shooter and backed by one of the largest names in archery...read full review

Hoyt Carbon Spyder ZT 34 Review

The Bottom Line: It is hard to find anything wrong with the Hoyt Carbon Spyder ZT 34 that really does it all and has specifications for every kind of archery shooters are interested in. Performance wise, it could be a little faster, but many shooters are willing to sacrifice a little speed for shootability. The suggested retail price in large, and unfortunately it is going to mean many shooters will not be able to afford what is a truly great shooting multipurpose bow. Let's face it, a bare Carbon Spyder ZT 34 is the price most bows are going to be entirely outfitted ready to shoot. However, for those able to make the investment, the Carbon Spyder ZT 34 will not disappoint...read full review

Hoyt Nitrum Turbo Review

The Bottom Line: The Nitrum turbo is a great shooting bow for those wanting the most in terms of speed and performance. It is a little disappointing to not have 80-pound limbs as an option on the turbo, but that only appeals to a small percentage of shooters. With the improvement to the stiffened offset riser, the cage design from the Hoyt target models, and the zero torque cable guard system, this aluminum riser is on of the best Hoyt has ever produced in regards to research and development. Hoyt has never had a true speed bow, and their first installment in the segment is a winner...read full review

Hoyt Nitrum 34 Review

The Bottom Line: The Nitrum 34 is a longer axel-to-axel bow, but even feels a bit sturdier with how long the riser actually is. The zero torque cable guard system and upgrades to the risers stiffness and strength may not be noticeable in terms of how the bow feels, but it should prove to be more accurate. For those at the longer side of the draw length range, the 34 string angle is much nicer when compared to the 30. It is easy to shoot the 34 with how well it holds. The noise after the arrow is released is very minimal, and the bit of felt vibration is easily taken care of with a stabilizer. Other than a boy shooting 330 feet per second, it is very tough to find anything wrong with the Nitrum 34...read full review

Hoyt Carbon Spyder ZT Turbo Review

The Bottom Line: The price on the Carbon Spyder ZT Turbo is the negative of this bow. Truth be told, everything else about this bow screams shootability and performance, which is a tough combination to accomplish in the same package. The stronger carbon riser, an updated cam, and every technology Hoyt has available makes this bow a dream to shoot. For those not concerned about the sticker shock, the Hoyt Carbon Spyder ZT Turbo will not disappoint in any style of shooting...read full review

Hoyt Carbon Spyder ZT 30 Review

The Bottom Line: The Hoyt Carbon ZT 30 is another great offering by Hoyt, but the price tag is sure to scare off a lot of shooters. Although there are some advancements in technology for the 2014 Hoyt Carbon Spyder 30, the difference may not be enough to justify an upgrade. With that being said, those who did not buy the 2014 model will get a stronger riser, a Zero Torque Cable Guard system, and confidence in buying a top of the line bow from a giant in the archery industry. This bow is lightweight, compact in design, and has an easy drawing cam system producing decent speed numbers with a forgiving brace height. Price tag aside, this bow is a winner, but the ultimate decision will be the shooters personal preference...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 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 Ignite Review

The Bottom Line: The Hoyt Ignite is a new bow in the 2014 lineup. It was introduced to provide a more economical avenue for young shooters to get involved in archery and grow with them so they don't have to buy new bows every couple of years. This rig will be with the shooter for years. Although this bow is an entry-level rig, it offers the shooter decent speed, and excellent accuracy at any draw weight and length. It is easy to shoot from the lowest draw weight and the shortest draw length, all the way up to the maxed out specs.This rig is very economical and is a good beginner bow. With a 28" ATA, an 8" brace height, and only 3.6 pounds of mass, it will fit almost any shooter looking to break into archery. With the ease of adjustability, this is a good vow to start on...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
