Bear Empire
User rating:
out of 3 reviews
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

PSE Ferocity Review

The Bottom Line:The Ferocity is a nice shooting compact bow. The Ferocity binary cam system delivers everything newer archers want in a hunting bow, has a great deal of draw weight and draw length adjustability, and is affordable for just about anyone wanting to get started. The Ferocity is priced extremely well at... read full review

PSE Bow Madness 3G Review

The Bottom Line:The Bowmadness 3g is very appealing on paper and shoots just as well. The shock free release and IBO speeds of 330 feet per second have a lot to offer all archery shooters. With a long riser and forgiving brace height, the Bowmadness holds very well at full draw and is one of the most shock free bows... read full review

PSE Evo 7 Review

The Bottom Line:The PSE EVO 7 was created for those shooters who want a fast bow, but are not willing to go with a shorter brace height. PSE did a nice job responding to the wants of shooters by producing the EVO 7 along with the EVO. With 335 feet per second, and tons of useful technologies, the EVO 7 is designed... read full review

Hoyt Vector Turbo

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... read full review

Mathews Mustang Review

The Bottom Line:All in all, the Mustang is a good choice for youth and women hunters of all skill levels. The speed gives plenty of energy for hunting and the easy of shooting will make it fun to shoot out on the 3D course. Draw length specific cams hurt the value of this bow since changing cams frequently may begin... 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... 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... read full review

PSE Freak Review

The Bottom Line:Long draw shooters do not have many options available to them. Most options available are a redesign of old technology that is made to work for long draw shooters.

Mathews Halon X Review

The Bottom Line:The Halon X is a nice addition to the 2016 Mathews lineup giving shooters wanting a bit longer axel to axel measurement an option to go with.

Bowtech Equalizer
User rating:
out of 2 reviews
Bowtech Equalizer Review

The Bottom Line:This is a very nice shooting bow. The shooter can easily dismiss the bow initially when viewing the short brace height and the short draw. This deception is quickly dispelled when the bow is pulled back and the arrow flies. Many shooters average in the neighborhood of 284 fps out of this bow. As the... read full review

Martin Pantera Review

The Bottom Line:All in all the Pantera Magnum is a pretty impressive package. Its user friendly specs and easy to make adjustments will appeal to shooters and dealers alike. Though primarily designed as a longer axle to axle hunting bow, it should perform equally well on a 3D course or on an NFAA face. Keen new features... read full review

PSE Stiletto Review

The Bottom Line:The Stiletto proves to be a great option in the limited number of bows designed for female archers.

PSE Infinity Review

The Bottom Line:The Infinity is a great bow, which looks like other PSE models.

Shooters must purchase the bow in one of two package options, which should be fine for most... read full review
