G5 Quest Heat

G5 Quest Heat Review

The Bottom Line:This is a nice looking bow that will surprise the shooter at first. The exceptional speed and accuracy will catch the shooter off guard with the first couple of shots, but then, the shooter can't wait to nock another arrow. The forged, machined riser feels good in the hand, and the bow is well balanced.... read full review

Mission Menace

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... read full review

Strother Rush XT Review

The Bottom Line:The Rush XT is an impressive bow to say the least. The dual Badger Cam II delivers a great feel with lots of energy behind it. The shorter brace height is still forgiving and shouldn't be shied away from. There is virtually no suppression at the shot creating that amazing "dead in th hand" feeling.... read full review

Mathews ZXT Review

The Bottom Line:Regardless of this bow seeming to somewhat be flying under the radar in Mathew's line up it is one of their best hunting bows. It may even be the best in some opinions. With it being so compact and so comfortable to shoot it is tough to beat. The fit and finish of the ZXT is very nice as all Mathews... read full review

PSE Vendetta Review

The Bottom Line:The Vendetta is not breaking any speed records with 330 feet per second, but those who have shot the Vendetta will rave about its smooth draw cycle. For $699 the Vendetta is a great option at a reasonable price for a Pro Series bow and the technology that comes along with it. The ability for the Vendetta... read full 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.

Parker BlackHawk EZ Draw Review

The Bottom Line:The Parker Blackhawk EZ Draw was the flagship bow for Parker in 2009. This bow was chock-full of new technologies when it was initially put on the market. At the time, many archers that had shot the Blackhawk described it as the "best bow that Parker has ever put on the market." With the EZ Draw cams,... 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... read full review

The Bottom Line:Any willing to learn youth will fit into this bow just right. It is forgiving and gives the realistic feel of shooting a "big" bow.

PSE Evo SD Review

The Bottom Line:The EVO platform is one of PSE's most popular bow and for good reason. The SD version redesigns the cam system to allow for more shooters to enjoy the benefits of the EVO platform. The smooth draw and quick speeds will make judging distance a little less crucial with speed making up with minor miscalculations.... read full review

Mathews Chill SDX Review

The Bottom Line:The Mathews Chill SDX was designed in 2014, but the folks at Mathews did not want to wait until the 2015 lineup came out to offer this bow to the public. It was designed with the female archer in mind, but with the specs being offered with this rig, they were eager to get it in the stores, so they began... 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... read full review

Please do not let the price of the Charger fool you into thinking it is not a worthy option. With tons of... read full review

Parker SideKick Review

The Bottom Line:Parker has designed a bow specifically for youth and women that has the same quality and technologies as their best-selling adult bows... the Sidekick Extreme.

Ross Carnivore 31 Review

The Bottom Line:The 31 is the shortest axel to axel bow available in the Ross Carnivore lineup. It features a butter smooth draw, silent release, and an overwhelming feeling of "wow." For a short bow, the Carnivore 31 performs like a much longer bow accuracy wise, but some shooters may not appreciate the heavy overall... read full review
