Bowtech BT-X 28
User rating:
out of 1 review
Bowtech BT-X 28 Review

The Bottom Line:The BTX-28 may give shooters the ability to tune and tinker more than any recent Bowtech model. However, for many shooters, this is too much to learn and mess around with. The option is great to be able to work on a bow without the need for a press, and the simple allen screw adjustments make it even... read full review

Elite Option 6 Review

The Bottom Line:The look and feel of the Option 6 is most definitely Elite. However, the new adjustable roller guard system, split limbs, and faster 342 feet per second speeds really challenge what people have gotten used to from Elite in the past. The engineers did a nice job keeping the Option 6 a very shootable... read full review

Mathews Z3

Mathews Z3 Review

The Bottom Line:Nothing about the Z3 says budget friendly bow other than the $749 MSRP tag. The rest of the bow is everything consumers have come to expect from Mathews in regards to craftsmanship, design, and shootability all wrapped in a perfect package of the beloved Z7 bow. Shooters regretting the decision to... read full review

Mathews Halon 32 6 Review

The Bottom Line:The Halon 32 when paired with the 6-inch brace height is a great hunting bow! There is added stability with the longer axel to axel measurement, IBO speeds reaching 343 feet per second, and some amazing looking camo patterns to really make shooters interested in the purchase of a new Mathews for 2017.... read full review

Hoyt Pro Defiant 34 Review

The Bottom Line:The Pro Defiant 34 is a true multi-purpose bow that is perfectly capable of 3D, spot shooting, and hunting without compromise. This is convenient for shooters that want one bow that can truly do anything shooters demand out of it. The Pro Defiant 34 price tag of $1099 is much easier to justify when... read full review

Martin Chameleon Carbon Review

The Bottom Line:Continuing their market-leading use of carbon in price-point compound models, Martin Archery has hit the jackpot with their redesigned ultra-light, adjustable platform, beginning with the Stratos and evolving into the Chameleon. Other than the somewhat sluggish IBO, there is no feature of this bow that... read full review

Bowtech BT-Mag

Bowtech BT-Mag Review

The Bottom Line:Bowtech states, "Go big or go home," when advertising the BT-Mag, and that statement is certainly true. Shooters will need to be certain they want a longer framed bow when they grab the 36-inch axel to axel bow tipping the scales at 4-6-pounds before added accessories. The BT-Mag takes what Bowtech... read full review

Bear Kuma LD Review

The Bottom Line:The Kuma LD has everything shooters could possibly want in a long draw bow. The 330 feet per second is fine enough, the axel-to-axel measurement is long enough to be accommodating and short enough to be maneuverable, the 6.5-inch brace height is a mixture of forgiveness and performance, and the feel... read full review

Bowtech Reign 6 Review

The Bottom Line:The Regin 6 is a great shooting bow. It has a premium suggested price tag of a $1099, but keep in mind that number is comparable with other flagship model bows on the market for 2017 from giant companies like Bowtech. The Reign offers a great deal of tinkering for shooters that like to play with their... read full review

Bear LS2

Bear LS2 Review

The Bottom Line:Bear has done it again producing a great performing bow, in a package deal, for only $550. 320 feet per second is a bit slow, but the easy draw cycle and solid hold on target is well worth the slower arrow for some shooters. 80% let off feels amazing with this rig, and the balance of the bow on target... read full review

Bear LS4 Review

The Bottom Line:The Bear LS 4 does not have all of the latest technology created by Bear engineers for 2017. It also does not have anything that is brand new to the archery world or that will be highlighted on the cover of a magazine. However, the Bear LS 4 does everything shooters want it to. It has high let off in... read full review

PSE Phenom XT Review

The Bottom Line:The Phenom XT is a great offering to the target community. Archers just getting started with target shooting may be a bit overwhelmed and sticker shocked to see what some high-end target models sell for. The Phenom XT shoots exceptionally well, and has a suggested retail of only $699, which is less than... read full review

PSE Carbon Air 32 ECS Review

The Bottom Line:The Carbon Air 32 ECS is the ultimate carbon riser hunting bow from PSE. It is lightweight, compact, high performing, easy to shoot, and packed with the latest technology PSE has to offer. Everything about this bow is great for those on the market for a hunting bow. However, the price tag is massive,... read full review

PSE Phenom SD Review

The Bottom Line:The Phenom SD should appeal to a lot of shooters on the market for a target bow. Shooters with a limited budget, weaker shoulders, or short draw folks should really give this bow an honest look. It lacks some of the technology PSE has to offer for 2017, but nothing about the bow feels like a budget bow,... read full review

PSE Xpedite Review

The Bottom Line:Speed sells, and when packaged with such great features like the Xpedite, it should be even easier to sell. 360 feet per second is marketable to a large audience of hunters, and 360 feet per second with the Evolve Cam System is marketable to even more than speed freaks. This cam draws super smooth, has... read full review

Elite Ritual Review

The Bottom Line:The Ritual is Elite's attempt at pulling all their most popular technologies over the years together into one package.

The Ritual's draw cycle is exactly why... read full review

Diamond Infinite Edge Pro Review

Bowtech Realm X Review

The Bottom Line:It is getting harder and harder to find faults with bows made in 2018. Everything Bowtech offers in the Realm X is customizable, making it one of the most unique rigs on the market. Anything shooters can have a personal preference with is customizable, and that makes the Realm X very competitive in the... read full review

PSE Carbon Air Stealth EC Review

The Bottom Line:This is a great bow, and will win over a ton of faithful followers after getting a chance to spend some time on the range with one. The largest downside to the Carbon Air Stealth is going to be the $1500 price tag. Is it worth the extra money? For some shooters, it absolutely will be. Unfortunately,... read full review

Hoyt REDWRX Carbon RX-1 Review

The Bottom Line:Hoyt says the REDWRX badge is a new indicator of the best they have to offer.

This durability should instill a great amount of confidence in potential... read full review
