PSE EVO NXT 33

PSE EVO NXT 33 Review

The Bottom Line:The 2020 PSE EVO NXT has limited bells and whistles, and is in no way flashy. To many shooters, the lack of marketability and increased buzz around the release of a flagship bow may be a turnoff. However, for shooters basing their decision to purchase based on how a bow feels and shoots, the PSE EVO... read full review

PSE EVO NXT 31 Review

The Bottom Line:PSE is celebrating their 50th year in the archery industry, and the EVO NXT platform does not disappoint. The NXT 31 is the shortest of the EVO NXT lineup with a 30.5-inch axle-to-axle measurement, and also has the fastest speed rating out of the group as well. It is worth mentioning the slow speed rating... read full review

PSE Bandit NXT

PSE Bandit NXT Review

The Bottom Line:The Bandit NXT is an awesome shooting bow, which may turn some people off being called a high-end youth model. Aside from the bow being smaller framed, and peaking at a draw length of 26-inches and a draw weight of 50-pounds, nothing about the Bandit NXT is typical of a youth bow. The cams are amazingly... read full review

PSE Carbon Air Stealth Mach 1 Review

The Bottom Line:PSE has done an outstanding job with the Carbon Air Stealth Mach 1 for 2020, by improving every single cricritiquetic shooters of the previous Carbon Air Stealth model had. The Mach 1 is such an awesome shooting bow, it may be the best model in all 2020. The laid back limbs make a huge difference in... read full review

Hoyt REDWRX Carbon RX-4 Ultra Review

The Bottom Line:The RX-4 Ultra is the third installment of the REDWRK branding from Hoyt, and it is arguably the best carbon model Hoyt has ever produced. The changes to the cam system, although somewhat minor, have really made a better shooting experience with a smoother draw, firmer back wall, and quieter shot. The... read full review

Hoyt REDWRX Carbon RX-4 Turbo Review

The Bottom Line:The RX-4 Turbo is a great shooting bow. It has a maneuverable frame with a compact 31-inch axle-to-axle measurement, and an ATA rated 350 feet per second gives shooters a lot of options for arrow weight and kinetic energy versus raw speed for each to choose what makes the most sense for them.

Hoyt REDWRX Carbon RX-4 Alpha Review

The Bottom Line:The Alpha series is an awesome offering from Hoyt in 2020, and the carbon RX-4 Alpha bow is worth a test shot. This RX-4 Alpha is the most compact hunting bow Hoyt has ever produced, and it came about with input from customers and shop owners from across the country with whitetail hunting in mind.

Hoyt Axius Ultra Review

Hoyt Axius Alpha Review

The Bottom Line:The Axius Alpha is the most compact hunting bow ever designed by Hoyt, and it marks off a large number of wants for those on the market for a short hunting bow. There is a fair amount of performance with an ATA speed rating of 342 feet per second. The 4.3-pound bare bow weight is also fairly lightweight... read full review

Bear Status EKO Review

The Bottom Line:The bear legend series of those instills a boost of confidence just from association alone. Fred Bear is often noted as the founder of modern day bowhunting, and the legends series is the lineup dedicated directly to his legacy. Bear did an amazing job with the Status EKO bow, and it is going to be a... read full review

Bear Paradox HC Review

The Bottom Line:For a strictly designed hunting bow, there is a lot to get excited about with the Bear Paradox HC. Potentially at the top of the list of things to love about the bow is the price tag of only $499, with the Ready to Hunt package only being an additional $100. For those just starting out, or shooters needing... read full review

Bear Divergent EKO Review

The Bottom Line:The Bear Divergent EKO is a limited frills hunting bow, which does everything it is designed to do. Shorter axle to axle bows are not for all bow hunters, but those on the market for something a bit more compact are already aware of what a smaller bow performs like, and should have no issues with the... read full review

G5 Prime Black 1 Review

The Bottom Line:Short axle to axle hunting bows are hugely popular for 2020, and the Black 1 is right up there as one of the best shooters. Although there is a ton of competition in the compact hunting bow market, the Black 1 really has a lot to offer in regards to a new cam system, a wide, stable platform, well designed... read full review

Elite Kure Review

The Bottom Line:The Kure adapts to each shooter, without the need for a bow press, to match exactly how shooters like their rigs to feel. The 31 13/16- inch axle-to-axle is somewhat compact, while still maintaining some stability. The mass weight is a bit heavy, but the Kure carries the weight well, and never feels... read full review

The Bottom Line:The Elite Rezult is for serious target shooters.
