PSE Dream Season Decree
User rating:
out of 3 reviews
PSE Dream Season Decree Review

The Bottom Line:High performance bows like the PSE Decree often do not get a fair shot in terms of head to head comparisons because most people feel bows set at the same draw weight are equal. Cams like the Inertia Cams with more of an aggressive feel allow shooters to drop significantly in draw weight and still maintain... read full review

Elite Revol Review

The Bottom Line:The Revol is a nice shooting bow for anyone, but should appeal the most to shooters looking for a rig that can do it all. Simply swapping out a few accessories to go from indoors shooting on the line to heading out to a tree stand to hunt is a nice confidence boost being able to be comfortable with... read full review

PSE Xpression Review

The Bottom Line:The 2016 Xpression is a great target bow and has a lot of features catering towards shooters being able to get a fully set up bow to truly match their shooting style and preferences. The Xpression is direct competition to the Dominator, which many shooters have grown to love, so it may be a hard sell... read full review

Mathews Halon 7 Review

The Bottom Line:The Halon 7 may be the most popular of the Halon series bows given the acceptable speeds and largest brace height of the bunch. 335 feet per second in a compact 30-inch axel-to-axel package makes for a really enticing hunting bow for shooters wanting the smallest, hardest hitting rig available.

Bowtech Carbon Icon Review

The Bottom Line:This is more than a regular bow with a decent price. It's extra light weight due to its' carbon riser takes it beyond basic. It has many options and new innovations along with being at least fairly comfortable to shoot at even the more aggressive settings. It has a solid backwall with a generous brace... read full review

Bear Wild

Bear Wild Review

The Bottom Line:The Wild is a 2016 price point bow aimed at getting shooters the best bang for their buck. The largest downside for the Wild is the underwhelming speed of only 310 feet per second. With the slower speed rating aside, it really is difficult to fins something wrong with this bow for the price point it... read full review

User rating:
out of 2 reviews
Mathews No Cam HTX Review

The Bottom Line:The HTX is a short bow, which is limiting the market to those wanting a compact hunting bow. However, the combination of the larger cams and the longer riser make it feel more like a longer bow then most short models. The HTX is not all that special on paper, but it really shines during at the shot... read full review

Mathews Halon 6 Review

The Bottom Line:The Halon 6 should be a popular bow in the hunting world for Mathews. There are some shooters wishing to see a longer axel to axel flagship bow from Mathews, but the Monster Wake for 2015 may be close enough to a longer Halon for Mathews to even consider building one in the future. For those skeptical... read full review

Bear Attitude Review

The Bottom Line:The Bear Attitude is a well designed bow that has some nice specifications.

Diamond Core Review

The Bottom Line:The Diamond Core is a 31" shooting platform with a 7.25" brace height, adjustable from 25" - 30," can be purchased with 50#, 60#, or 70# peak weight limbs, and packs a solid 31 fps. Although this is slow by today's standards, it packs plenty of punch to satisfy even the most hard core hunter. It is super... read full review

Hoyt Carbon Defiant 34
User rating:
out of 3 reviews
Hoyt Carbon Defiant 34 Review

The Bottom Line:To be honest, the Carbon Defiant is not a very appealing bow on paper. Speeds seem to be slower than previous Hoyt models, the lightweight carbon riser bow still tips the scales at 3.8-pounds, and the price tag of $1449 is scary even if money is not a factor in deciding which bow to purchase. However,... read full review

Parker UltraLite 30 Review

The Bottom Line:Parker's revival of the UltraLite series, specifically the UltraLite 30+, was a beneficial move for the company as well as the archers that have the ability to use this compound- it stands out in the market as an inexpensive frontrunner of mainline bows. With qualities of higher end models, a basic,... read full review

The Bottom Line:To sum up, the 2016 Ace raises the bar yet again for Athens' USA-precision-built compounds.

Hoyt Carbon Spyder FX 30 Review

The Bottom Line:Hunters continue to demand the most performance from their rigs while maintaining shootability and forgiveness. The Carbon Spyder FX is a short bow with an actual draw length feel of a longer axel-to-axel model, cams that shoot up to 330 feet per second, and a 6 3/4-inch brace height for forgiveness.... read full review

Mathews Stoke Review

The Bottom Line:The Stoke is one of the most feature packed youth bows on the market. It literally has the flagship Mathews Crosscentric cam system as the driving force of the rig, and the rest of the bow fits the bill of being a high-end adult hunting bow. The $999 price tag is high end as well, but considering the... read full review
