PSE Moneymaker X
User rating:
out of 2 reviews
PSE Moneymaker X Review

The Bottom Line:The PSE Moneymaker X was designed by some of the best archers in the world. Thus, it only makes sense that this bow is one of the most accurate and easiest shooting target bows ever manufactured. Shooters will need to choose between the hybrid cam and single cam versions of this rig. Both feature... read full review

PSE Brute
User rating:
out of 16 reviews
PSE Brute Review

The Bottom Line:The name says it all, Brute. This bow is a great hunting bow especially if you are on a budget. The incredibly smooth draw and very forgiving brace height make this bow easy to shoot accurately. It is also virtually vibration free, giving it the feel of a much higher priced bow. It is hard to find anything... read full review

PSE Deer Hunter Review

The Bottom Line:While the PSE Deer Hunter may not be the top quality bow that most of us want to shoot, it is a very good all-around bow, especially for a beginner looking to get into archery and not spend a lot of money. This rig is an accurate and forgiving bow that will serve its shooter well, whether a new archer... read full review

Rytera Seeker 365 Review

The Bottom Line:The Rytera Seeker 365 is a high quality bow from a company that is taking the reins on producing cutting edge equipment that is sure to turn some heads.

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... read full review

PSE Silverhawk Review

The Bottom Line:For someone wanting to get into archery or just learn how to shoot, the PSE Silverhawk is a good option that will not break the bank. During its three year run (2007-2009) this bow was the most affordable in the PSE line-up. It may be questionable whether or not this makes the rig a very good value... read full review

Mathews Heli-m Review

The Bottom Line:Don't let the feather weight lead you to believe that it's not a heavy hitter. Its 30" axle to axle, 7" brace height and 332 fps is enough to make many people turn their heads for a closer look. That's when they will be blown away when they pick the bow up and find out that it weighs in at 3.5lb. Not... 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... read full review

Limbsaver Deadzone DZ-32 Review

The Bottom Line:The DeadZone 32 is the Do-it-all bow suited for every archer. This bow utilized a lot of new technology that the archery world has not seen previous to Limbsaver. These technologies combine to produce vibration-free performance in a smooth, well balanced and quiet bow with a tough look that can shoot... read full review

Limbsaver Deadzone DZ-36 Review

The Bottom Line:The DZ 36 was designed to give archers a quality long axle to axle option that could be used for target competition and could be shot by a fingers shooter. Limbsaver utilized the almost straight riser design they developed for the original Deadzone 32 because of its innate ability to aim and hold on... read full review

Limbsaver Speedzone SZ-34 Review

The Bottom Line:The Limbsaver Speedzone is a quality built speed bow packed with features and technology that draws and shoots as smooth as some single cam bows. While this rig may look a little different than most other bows on the market, some of these differences are where Limbsaver packs new technology such as... read full review

Limbsaver Deadzone DZ-30 Review

The Bottom Line:Limbsaver engineered the DZ 30 because so many hunters wanted a lighter, more maneuverable version of the DZ 32. First developed in 2009, Limbsaver has continued to produce and improve the DZ 30 each year. With the use of the nearly straight riser design and the ease of using the Rolling Fulcrum system... 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... 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.

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... read full review

Mission Journey 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... read full review

Diamond Dead Eye Review

The Bottom Line:The Diamond Dead Eye is a single cam speed-hunting bow. Those shooters interested in fast shooting rigs packed with a lot of kinetic energy will be impressed with the Dead Eye.

Bear Empire Review

The Bottom Line:This is a very underrated bow by many especially with the press that the Motives get from Bear. The technology from Bear engineers is still improving as it has been for a while now. It has good speed for a single cam bow and the brace height is very forgiving. The Empire is nearly shock free and is... read full review
