Mathews Chill R

out of 1 review
Mathews Chill R Review

The Bottom Line:Mathews has been an industry leader for quality and workmanship for a while now, and the Chill R is another example of that. Although there are not many changes from the Chill R in terms of new technology, shooters not interested in the Chill from last year demanded the changes made for 2014. The Chill... read full review

G5 Quest Drive Review

The Bottom Line:The Quest Drive features a twin track cam system, a longer axel-to-axel measurement, a forgiving brace height, and IBO speeds up to 330 feet per second. When put together, the Drive is a smooth shooting hunting bow with a potential for being a multipurpose rig. Although 4.3-pounds for a bare bow seems... read full review

Hoyt Klash Review

The Bottom Line:Hoyt Archery took what was a great bow platform, made a few key improvements, and reintroduced it as the all new Klash for 2017. With a lightweight, modern, parallel-limbed riser, a vast array of adjustability in both the draw weight and draw length ranges, and a compact design, this compound has it... read full review

Elite GTO Review

The Bottom Line:The Elite GTO is an Elite fan favorite and has been for a while, with really great qualities that go well with a multipurpose bow.

Bowtech Assassin SD Review

The Bottom Line:The Bowtech Assassin SD was introduced to the lineup in 2012 to bring in a new dimension of hunters by offering a fast, accurate, and affordable bow to those with shorter draw lengths. The team at Bowtech decided to take the Assassin and outfit it to accommodate those archers. This culminated into the... read full review

Martin Alien Review

The Bottom Line:The Martin Alien M40 is a new release for 2013 from the Rytera brand. Martin made the business decision to focus more on overall quality instead of offering two separate brands. Although the Alien was a good selling bow for Rytera, there were known problems such as splitting and peeling limbs which detracted... read full review

Bowtech HeartBreaker Review

The Bottom Line:The Bowtech Heartbreaker has been marketed as a women's bow, but is also a bow designed for archers with short draw lengths. Some say that is the same bow as the Bowtech Assassin except it has a pink color scheme option. The bow comes with a 30.25" ATA and a very forgiving 7" brace height and a strong... read full review

Hoyt Faktor 34 Review

The Bottom Line:The bottom line for choosing a bow always comes down to each individual shooter. However, the Faktor 34 is going to be a winner for many interested in a longer axel-to-axel bow with the ability to be used as a multipurpose shooter. Shooters will need a high quality stabilizer to tone the hand shock... read full review

Hoyt Faktor Turbo Review

The Bottom Line:The Hoyt Faktor Turbo is a great addition to a popular offering in the Hoyt lineup since the Turbo model was introduced. Shooters owning last year's Turbo model may not have a reason to update based on cost alone, but there are enough differences in feel and shootability to warrant the upgrade if money... read full review

Elite Energy 35

Elite Energy 35 Review

The Bottom Line:The Elite Energy 35 is one of the most ideal bows in archery. It is touted as "probably the most shootable bow ever." The innovative Caged Riser is the first thing usually noticed about this bow, and quite honestly, can throw you off. Once you feel this rig, pull it back, and release that first shot,... read full review

PSE Bow Madness 34 Review

The Bottom Line:PSE is known for offering something for every shooter. The Bowmadness 34 is not necessarily a budget bow, but it fits comfortably in between a beginners model and the flag ship models. Those looking to upgrade, or just wanting a really high quality bow without the price tag will find a lot to like... read full review

Athens Accomplice 34 Review

The Bottom Line:The Accomplice 34 is a hands down winner for many shooters. With tons of customization, unique camo patterns, and specifications thriving on the right combination of forgiveness and speed, Athens has done a great job with this bow. The decently priced rig has a lot to offer shooters from any archery... read full review

Elite XLR Review

The Bottom Line:The XLR makes a solid option for longer draw shooters. There is a huge draw weight range, module cams, a forgiving brace height, and decent speeds with the XLR. For some shooters, it may be one of the only bows matching the specifications they need, but shooters will not feel like they are settling... read full review

Diamond Edge SB-1 Review

The Bottom Line:Diamond Archery has caused an uproar in the industry by not only putting out an impressive shooting machine, but by including a full blown website devoted to the owners who purchase this bow, helping them turn their own allen wrenches before running to a local shop or dealer. For nearly half the price... read full review

G5 Prime One Review

The Bottom Line:Prime bows have been designed with hunting in mind. However, shooters have been performing well on the range and in competitions with the hunting rigs. The Prime One is an example of a company listening to what shooters are demanding. Although the MSRP of $1499 may be steep for many shooters, the... read full review

G5 Quest Bliss Review

The Bottom Line:There are very few bows offered in the archery world specifically designed for female shooters, and those marketed toward them are often youth/women models. Female archers will love the fact that the Bliss is designed for females in mind from the axel-to-axel measurement, brace height, slim grip, and... read full review

G5 Quest Rev Review

The Bottom Line:The Quest REV really has nothing bad about it other than the price. The $629 price tag is a bit steep to be considered a budget bow, and is not too far off from premium bows from other companies that have been around much longer. Although the price is a fairly competitive one, shooters strictly looking... read full review

Diamond Atomic Review

The Bottom Line:For a starter bow, the Atomic is a hard one to beat. Archery is a wonderful sport, and part of the experience is passing the tradition on to others. Who better to share the sport with than children? The Atomic is designed to look like an adult bow, and does that very well, while keeping great shootability... read full review

Bowtech RPM 360

out of 8 reviews
Bowtech RPM 360 Review

The Bottom Line:The Bowtech RPM 360 is marketed as a speed bow, but do not let that fool you. This rig offers an IBO of 360 fps, which initially will turn the average hunter away, because something that produces that much speed cannot be a good hunting bow because it has to be loud and have lots of vibration, right?... read full review

PSE Beast EXT

PSE Beast EXT Review

The Bottom Line:Simply put, the 2016 PSE Beast EXT was perfectly named. The bow matches everything shooters with a draw length out to 33-inches would want. The frame is long, the weight is heavy, the looks are aggressive, the arrows hit hard, and the customization of the cams is not something longer draw archers are... read full review
