Bowtech Brigadier
User rating:
out of 1 review
Bowtech Brigadier Review

The Bottom Line:The Brigadier took the reigns as the target bow for Bowtech in 2009 and has everything that a shooter is looking for; if they aren't looking for a rocket ship. This is a high end, high performance competition target bow released to replace the late and great Bowtech Constitution. With a great brace height... read full review

Bowtech Soldier Review

The Bottom Line:The Soldier is a great option for shooters on a budget or those interested in a bow that will grow as quickly as they are. With younger shooters in mind, the price is right for making this bow a great first bow and offers some high end technology to make sure new shooters are shooting the best technology... read full review

Mathews Monster XLR8
User rating:
out of 7 reviews
Mathews Monster XLR8 Review

The Bottom Line:With a stiff draw cycle, the Mathews Monster XLR8 is an extremely fast bow - in fact, it's one of the fastest rigs out there. While the valley is short and requires getting used to, the back wall is very solid. Being a very fast and aggressive bow, the Monster XLR8 is definitely not an all-around bow... read full review

Bear Truth 2

Bear Truth 2 Review

The Bottom Line:The Bear Truth 2 is a smooth single cam bow with a solid back wall. Although the new string suppressors represent innovative design, there seems to be a minor problem (can be fixed easily) with this silencing system. While some shooters think the price is a bit high, others insist this is due to a high... read full review

Bowtech Experience

Bowtech Experience Review

The Bottom Line:From a shooting standpoint, it is hard to find flaws with the Bowtech Experience. Everything feels great, and the bow performs very well. Hopefully Bowtech has corrected the limb peeling issue for 2013, which would take away a major reason for shooters being hesitant on making the purchase. With a... read full review

Bowtech Air Raid

out of 2 reviews
Bowtech Air Raid Review

The Bottom Line:The Air Raid is a very solid and great shooting bow when tuned properly. The unique rotating module cam system design makes it possible to adjust the draw length without using a bow press or changing cams/modules. Although this is not the most lightweight bow out there, this rig is very stable. Overall,... read full review

Bear Bounty Review

The Bottom Line:The Bear Bounty is a great packaged bow for those wanting a Ready to Hunt package for $599. For those not needing the package, there may be other options in the $600 range since the added cost of the accessories in not needed. Regardless, the Bounty is a nice bow for female archers with decent performance,... read full review

PSE X-Force Omen

PSE X-Force Omen Review

The Bottom Line:The PSE X-force Omen Pro is one of the fastest bows on the market today. Improvements to the Omen Pro for 2011 have made a speed bow, with a short brace height, into an accurate shooter. Additionally, the new riser and limb pockets help with accuracy but also make the draw cycle on this bow much smoother... read full review

Bear Attack
User rating:
out of 6 reviews
Bear Attack Review

The Bottom Line:In all the Bear Attack is a very solid option for the archer, which is probably a big reason why Bear kept it in their bow line up for 2011. While being very similar to the Carnage, this rig has a smoother draw than the Carnage while only giving up 5 fps. The Attack can be held at full draw for a good... read full review

Mathews Monster 7.0 Review

The Bottom Line:The Mathews Monster 7.0 is one of the best fast bows on the market. With low hand shock and vibration, this great shooting and forgiving rig has a smooth (and a bit stiff) draw cycle. While some shooters feel a little hump closer to the end of the draw cycle, others are pleasantly surprised with the... read full review

PSE X-Force Axe 7 Review

The Bottom Line:The PSE X-Force Axe 7 is one of the best quality 2010 bows capable of generating fast speeds. This is a fast, lightweight, and well balanced bow with a solid back wall. While the draw cycle is a bit stiff, it's also very smooth. In addition, the eccentric system is extremely adjustable: no bow press... read full review

Bowtech Sniper Review

The Bottom Line:After feeling how steady a 34-inch axel-to-axel bow holds, and how forgiving an almost 8-inch brace height is, the Sniper is a tough choice for many shooters. When they see the overall price of this awesome rig, shooters are even more excited. The Sniper offers a lot of really great features for any... read full review

The Bottom Line:The Destroyer 340 is an excellent shooting speed bow with minimal shock, vibration, and noise at the shot.
