Editor review:

The Phenom XT is a great offering to the target community. Archers just getting started with target shooting may be a bit overwhelmed and sticker shocked to see what some high-end target models sell for. The Phenom XT shoots exceptionally well, and has a suggested retail of only $699, which is less than many hunting rigs. As a target bow, the Phenom's lightweight 4-pound bare bow frame is sure to win over a lot of believers. The balance of that weight is great as well because shooters are able to get stabilizer weight directly where they want it to be without needing to level the bow off first. The Phenom is slow, which may not be a huge deal for indoor spot shooters, but those with aspirations to use this rig as a 3D bow, may need to practice on their yard judgment to eliminate any errors which will not be corrected by fast arrow speeds. It may be slightly disappointing for shooters with a shorter than27.5-inch draw length because the Phenom XT does not dip under that. However, the Phenom SD could be exactly what those shooters are wanting. For a budget friendly target rig, the Phenom XT is exactly what it is advertised to be. For those wanting the latest and greatest target archery technology, the Phenom XT will not be the bow of choice. For those just beginning in archery, wanting a lighter weight target option, or those just not willing to spend big money on a target bow, the Phenom XT is fantastic... read full review
