Hoyt Nitrum Turbo

out of 1 review
Hoyt Nitrum Turbo Review

The Bottom Line:The Nitrum turbo is a great shooting bow for those wanting the most in terms of speed and performance. It is a little disappointing to not have 80-pound limbs as an option on the turbo, but that only appeals to a small percentage of shooters. With the improvement to the stiffened offset riser, the cage... read full review

PSE Dominator Max MD Review

The Bottom Line:The 2015 PSE Dominator Max MD is a redesign of the Dominator. The Centerlock limb pockets and the Fourth Generation X-Tech limbs, combined with the Mini Evo cams make this a very accurate and fast bow for the competition shooter. The shorter power stroke and the smooth draw make it very shootable, and... read full review

PSE Brute Force Review

The Bottom Line:With 80% let-off, and speeds up to 332 feet per second, and a 7-inch brace height, the Brute Force really is a tempting bow on paper in regards to performance, specifications, and forgiveness. Consider the bare bow price of only $450, and it is very difficult for shooters to not give the Brute Force... read full review

Hoyt Nitrum 34
User rating:
out of 3 reviews
Hoyt Nitrum 34 Review

The Bottom Line:The Nitrum 34 is a longer axel-to-axel bow, but even feels a bit sturdier with how long the riser actually is. The zero torque cable guard system and upgrades to the risers stiffness and strength may not be noticeable in terms of how the bow feels, but it should prove to be more accurate. For those at... read full review

Hoyt Carbon Spyder ZT Turbo Review

The Bottom Line:The price on the Carbon Spyder ZT Turbo is the negative of this bow. Truth be told, everything else about this bow screams shootability and performance, which is a tough combination to accomplish in the same package. The stronger carbon riser, an updated cam, and every technology Hoyt has available... read full review

Diamond Rapture Review

Hoyt Carbon Spyder ZT 30 Review

The Bottom Line:The Hoyt Carbon ZT 30 is another great offering by Hoyt, but the price tag is sure to scare off a lot of shooters. Although there are some advancements in technology for the 2014 Hoyt Carbon Spyder 30, the difference may not be enough to justify an upgrade. With that being said, those who did not buy... read full review

Bear Arena 34 Review

The Bottom Line:Bear Archery has created another exceptional product in the Arena 34.

When favoring in the feel of the H15 cam system and its many adjustments to give the bow some personal... read full review

The Bottom Line:With all of the stiff competition in the archery industry, Ross does an impressive job making a class of their own with bows like the Headhunter. For roughly 3/4 of the price of a typical flagship bow, this compound will let you focus on quality accessories, and has the means to impress in the spectrums... read full review

PSE Premonition HD Review

The Bottom Line:For the price point of under $600, it will be difficult to find a compact bow with the exceptional speed the Premonition HD has. PSE is the leader in speed, and they are able to offer speed in price ranges where it is generally not as popular. The compact design and ease of adjustment makes the bow... read full review

Mathews Chill X Pro Review

The Bottom Line:The Chill X Pro is a bow designed for serious target shooters wanting a little more performance from their bow.

Bear BR 33 Review

The Bottom Line:The BR 33 is a nice multipurpose bow from Bear considering they do not have a dedicated target bow division.

For shooters wanting performance, but demanding a smoother... read full review

Strother Vital Review

The Bottom Line:The Strother Vital was introduced to the market in 2014. It was a redesign of the Wrath SHO with a slightly modified riser and new cams. With a 32" ATA, 7" brace height, and 335 fps, this bow gave the shooter a very smooth draw cycle with very minimal vibration and noise (without any noise dampening... read full review

Hoyt Ruckus JR Review

The Bottom Line:The Hoyt Ruckus Jr is a good quality entry level youth bow. It offers 12" draw adjustability from 15" - 27" and 10# - 30#. The adjustments are easily accomplished and at 30# and 27," this rig will push out a decent 219 fps. The split limb set-up with the Ruckus Cams provide the shooter with a good platform... read full review

G5 Prime Alloy Review

The Bottom Line:This bow is an absolute pleasure to shoot. The technology from G5 is amazing and it puts together a sweet draw cycle. It is truly well rounded and has the attributes to be great at everything a bow can be used for. The comfort level and ease to shoot are second to none. It may not be the fastest... read full review

Elite Emerge Review

The Bottom Line:For a smaller archer bow, Elite did a nice job keeping the technology on their upper end models consistent with what is standard on the Emerge model. For a true growing shooter bow, the limbs ten-pound increments are far from ideal, the weight is perhaps too heavy for young shooters, and the axel-to-axel... read full review

PSE Bow Madness 32 Review

The Bottom Line:The Bowmadness 32 is a great bow! Unfortunately, with a $599 price tag, and it being sold in a variety of box stores, the 32 may not get the attention it deserves from those interested in a new hunting bow. Granted, there are some missing features shooters could get with a Pro Series bow, but from... read full review

Obsession Knightmare Review

The Bottom Line:The 2015 Obsession Knightmare GT was designed with the hunter in mind. Although other shooters have said it is a modular cam version of the Obsession Delta 6, this bow has an attitude all of its own. With a 28 13/16" ATA and a 6" brace height, it is perfect for the ground blind or the tree stand. All... read full review

Bear Arena 30 Review

The Bottom Line:Bear has combined performance, adjustability, and a compact design into a really nice looking Arena 30. The specifications on this bow are great, and the feel on the shot matches.

The Bottom Line:PSE is great at offering bows for every shooter regardless of their personal preferences.
