Mission Blaze Review

The Bottom Line: The Mission Blaze is a great bow for anyone needing performance on a budget. For $599 it is very tough to find anything wrong with the Blaze from a performance and shootability standpoint. The grip is a little bulky, and there is a bit of hand shock from the bare bow, but the Blaze is still a solid contender based on how great it shoots. With the AVS cam system, speed is a strong positive along with easy tuning. Although some may be scared with a shorter brace height, the extra speed will more than make up with the forgiveness some feel they are giving up going below a 7-inch brace height. Overall, this bow deserves a test shot, especially for $599...read full review

Mission Flare Review

The Bottom Line: For $449 the Flare is a fantastic value for female shooters wanting to upgrade, or those getting started in the archery world without breaking the bank. The grip stinks, but the rest of the bow has some really great shootability and adjustment features making it worthwhile. The smooth drawing single cam Flare is a dream to draw, shoots well, and is accurate for a short axel-to-axel bow. With 7 1/8-inch brace height and 315 feet per second, the Flare will perform very well as a hunting bow for big game animals. Female shooters on the market should take a serious look at the Mission Flare backed by one of the biggest names in the archery industry...read full review

Mission Ballistic Review

The Bottom Line: The 2013 Mission Ballistic has everything the archer needs in a bow. With a 30.5" ATA, 7" brace height, and a very smooth draw, this bow is well-suited to fit any archery scenario from the target range to the most desolate hunting grounds. The machined riser, split limbs, and the AVS Cam system produce a very worthy 333 fps. Many shooters will overlook this rig as Mission is a subset of Matthews, and with a price tag of $499 it just it just can't be a very good bow for that price. WRONG! This bow is quiet, accurate, and fast. It is also adjustable from 26" to 30" draw length and 50# to 70# without using a bow press. If you are in the market for a new bow, give this one a try. You may find a bow that fits you while also saving a buck or two...read full review

Mission Riot Review

The Bottom Line: For under $400, it is hard to find a compact hunting bow that feels better than the Mission Riot. Along with the great feel, the Riot also offers adjustability giving those archers still growing a chance to shoot the same bow through the entire transition. Aside from new archers, shooters on a budget will be happy to see what the Riot offers in this price range. There will be some noticeable hand shock, and for a 31-inch axel-to-axel bow, many feel it should be less than 4.3 pounds. However, after shooting the Riot, shooters will be impressed with its performance. It deserves a test shot for anyone interested in a wonderful bow option with an MSRP of $399...read full review

Mission Rally Review

The Bottom Line: The Mission Rally is the first venture by Mission into the world of target bows. The rig was designed from Matthews experience in building quality, high-end target bows while incorporating many of the features found throughout the Mission line-up. With a 37" ATA, a 7 1/4" brace height, and the new Opti-Mod cam system, the Rally offers a huge range of adjustability while providing exceptional accuracy. It is a lower-end, entry-level target bow and offers 22" - 30" draw length and 26# - 70# of draw weight. Adjustments are easily accomplished simply by changing and/rotating the cam module without the need of a press, and can be done in a matter of minutes. This bow is easy to tune, and the archer can be shooting good groups consistently on the first time out. Many shooters describe the back wall as spongy, so changing the draw stop may be in order. With a $499 retail price, this is an affordable target bow, and although it is a lower-end rig, those that have shot it have been pleasantly surprised...read full review

Mission Craze Review

The Bottom Line: It is hard to not get excited about the Mission Craze when looking at the design. The bow, retailing for just under $300, shoots well, has lots of adjustability, looks like a high end bow with the reflexed cut out riser, parallel limb design, and the flawless Lost Camo AT. Mission does offer three different packages of accessories based on price of accessories; the Pro Hunter, the Bow Hunter and Basic. Any of these packages can be purchased separately for the Craze. The bow would be ideal for any young archer as the bow could grow the archer into adulthood due the adjustability in both draw length and draw weight. The Craze could also benefit any new archer who wants some shootability at a very affordable price. It is difficult to find any real flaws with the Craze due to the simplicity of the bow, how it shoots and the price of this model. The Craze, like many of the other Mission models, is an outstanding bow for the money...read full review

Mission Venture Review

The Bottom Line: The Venture is a bow designed with what many hunters are looking for in a bow. It is compact, forgiving, weighs in at under 4-pounds, and shoots pretty decent speeds for a smooth drawing single cam. These specifications should be enough of a selling point, but if it is not enough, the Venture has a price tag less than $500 as well. Although the Venture has a little kick and hand shock, shooters in the market for a great budget friendly bow should seriously consider what Mission is offering with the Venture...read full review

Mission Menace Review

The Bottom Line: This bow has "let me show you how" written all over it. It is smooth, forgiving, light, and highly adjustable for any sized youth archer. It fills a niche along with the Craze in Mission's line up, however, the Menace will fit a smaller shooter. The dual cams give it good speed even at lighter and shorter draws. Mission has good quality like Mathews, but no quite as flashy. It is comfortable to shoot and shouldn't put a bad taste in a new archer's mouth. The color options available on the Menace should be enough to excite most youths itself. Its enormous range of adjustability should satisfy a huge range of kids and adults. The MSRP is $269 and should fit the price range of many, but may be a little too high for others...read full review

Mission Voyager XT Review

The Bottom Line: The Voyager XT is the most expensive bow made by Mission to date. With that being said, it has a lot of high-end features not available on many of today's budget bows. With Mission's longest available axel-to-axel measurement, a forgiving brace height, more adjustable limbs, and draw lengths ranging from 26- 31.5 inches, the Voyager has a lot to offer a lot of people. The biggest downfall seems to be the price, which is stuck between the most expensive budget bow and the least inexpensive high-end bow. The Voyager was designed with all types of shooting in mind. Those who want a dual purpose bow for hunting in the fall and competition in the winter and summer may have a great option available to them in the Mission Voyager XT...read full review

Mission Endeavor Review

The Bottom Line: The Endeavor is a wonderful bow with an even better price. Sporting a popular short axel-to-axel measurement of 30.25 inches and a brace height of 7.125 inches, the Endeavor has a lot to offer potential shooters. With IBO speeds reaching 316 feet per second, the Endeavor is not the fastest single cam bow on the market. However, for those looking for a smooth shooting hunting rig, this is a great option. With draw length adjustability from 24-30 inches, and new limb pockets allowing for larger draw weight ranges, the shooting needs and styles of most shooters can be addressed with the Mission Endeavor. For those shooters on a tight budget, the Endeavor is hard to overlook. Although it may attract entry-level hunters due to such a low price, experienced shooters will also benefit from the large range of adjustability offered by the Endeavor...read full review

Mission Voyager Review

The Bottom Line: The Voyager is the fastest Mission bow ever produced. The higher end features are a great addition to this budget bow although the price is a bit higher than some other budget bows available. For shooters willing to trade a slightly aggressive draw for some added feet per second, they will find this to be an appealing option. The fit and finish options, including some target colors, combined with a walnut grip make the bow look like a higher end bow. With a forgiving 7-inch brace height, a 34-inch axel-to-axel measurement, and speeds up to 323 feet per second the Voyager is designed with all uses in mind. Although the Voyager feels a bit top heavy at 4.45 pounds, at full draw it feels balanced and comfortable. Despite these minor negatives, shooters looking for a smooth drawing single cam speed bow at a decent price should be impressed with the Mission Voyager...read full review

Mission Maniac Review

The Bottom Line: The Maniac is a well built, solid offering from Mission. Suited for a wide range of archers, a popular 31" length, 7" brace height and a lifetime warranty make this bow a winner, and a fairly good value for the money. Incorporating some older, yet proven design ideas allows Mission to offer the bow at a modest $449.00 price point, while the new cam system gives the bow a level of adjustment not previously available. If you are a hard core bowhunter, and looking for pure performance with no compromises, this bow probably isn't on your list. However, if your situation dictates the need for something with ultimate comfort and mega adjustability, then the Mission Maniac is definitely a bow worth a first, and perhaps second look...read full review

Mission Eliminator II Review

The Bottom Line: Overall, those who enjoyed the original Eliminator or Mathews DXT are going to appreciate the changes made resulting in the Eliminator 2. Those shooters demanding more speed and less vibration will find Eliminator II more suitable. Longer draw shooters often report a dislike of short axel-to-axel bows. However, if you are in the market for a short axel-to-axel hunting bow at a great price, the Mission Eliminator 2 may be the bow for you. The short parallel limb design hunting rig offers respectable speed and a variety of higher end options including: a rear stabilizer mounting hole and a Harmonic Dampener option. Choosing from one of the available factory accessory packages will give shooters a great set up for the same price as a higher end bare bow model. Although longer draw shooters normally avoid short axel-to-axel bows because of the string angle, those short to medium draw shooters looking for a maneuverable hunting bow may have found an inexpensive option...read full review

Mission BX1 Review

The Bottom Line: Before dropping big bucks and paying for a name, take a look at the Mission BX1 which is made by Mathews, one of the biggest names in archery. From the target to the field, the BX1 will deliver the performance demanded by all levels or archers from hunters to state champions. Most adult shooters will be able to use a BX1 since the draw length and weight ranges are appropriate for most...read full review

Mission Eliminator Review

The Bottom Line: The Eliminator has a lot to offer treestand or ground blind hunters at a price that is very appealing. The short axel-to-axel parallel limb design bow offers enough speed and kinetic energy for a variety of big game species with a forgiving brace height and a wide range of adjustability. The Mission Eliminator offers a limited amount of hand shock and is virtually silent after the arrow has been shot making it a fun bow to shoot. With the availability of factory accessory packages, a completely accessorized Eliminator may be the same price as a higher end bare bow. It is not the fastest short axel-to-axel bow available, but for many shooters, the price will more than make up for the lack of speed. For those looking to purchase a new hunting bow, the Mission Eliminator may be a great option...read full review

Mission Buckmasters Review

The Bottom Line: Shooters looking for an extremely forgiving brace height of 7.5 inches combined with a smooth drawing perimeter weighted single cam capable of reaching 316 fps will be happy to try out the Mission Buckmasters bow. This rig offers a large range of draw weight adjustability ranging from 40-80 pounds. Draw length is very adjustable as well, available in half-inch increments from 25 inches to 30 inches. On the downside, cams need to be switched out in order to adjust the draw length at an authorized Mission retailer. Despite the strategically placed CNC machined cut outs, the Buckmasters bow still weighs in a bit on the heavy side at 4.24 pounds. The price is the highest in the Mission line but still offers a great value for those interested in a hunting bow with a lot of high-end features...read full review

The Bottom Line: The Mission Journey is a great shooting bow that can be found for a very reasonable price and would make a great bow for any level archer. The Mathews Switchback XT is often mentioned as the best Mathews ever made, and the Mission Journey is nearly the same bow with a different name. The short axle-to-axle makes it ideal for hunting while the 315 fps IBO speed ensures that it is fast enough to take down big game...read full review

Mission X3 Review

The Bottom Line: The Mission X3 is a nice shooting bow at an affordable price that can be appreciated by new archers and veteran shooters, alike. Producing speeds up to 310 fps with a silky smooth draw, this bow will be a pleasure to shoot. There are better options out there for young growing shooters, since a cam change is required to change the draw length. If price is on your mind when shopping for a bow, consider the Mission X3. With the money you can save on initial price, you will be able to deck it out with nice accessories before even meeting the price of a bare top of the line bow...read full review
