Mathews Conquest Apex 7
User rating:
out of 1 review
Mathews Conquest Apex 7 Review

The Bottom Line:The Conquest Apex 7 is one of the most widely used Mathews bows for 3D and target shooting, and that is due to its great blend of speed and forgiveness. If you demand a quick bow that is easy to hold on target, the Apex 7 meets your needs. This bow meets advertised speeds and is almost shock and vibration... read full review

G5 Prime Shift
User rating:
out of 1 review
G5 Prime Shift Review

The Bottom Line:The draw cycle on the G5 Prime Shift is awesome due to all of the ground breaking technology that has been concentrated on this part of the bow. The back wall is super solid. It is a very comfortable and easy bow to shoot. It lacks top speed, but it is plenty fast enough to harvest nearly any big... read full review

PSE Bow Madness 30 Review

The Bottom Line:PSE really designs a bow to match the needs of every shooter. The PSE Bowmadness 30, although a bit on the short side for some, will be perfect for others looking into a shorter axel to axel hunting bow for 2015. The simplistic based performance offered with the hybrid cam system will be wonderful... read full review

Diamond The Rock Review

The Bottom Line:The Diamond Rock is a great smooth draw bow at an amazing price.

G5 Quest Smoke Review

The Bottom Line:With hunting and budget in mind, the Quest Smoke is a really great bow. The smooth drawing single cam, a forgiving brace height, and a longer axel to axel measurement make the Smoke a fantastic option for a hunting rig. It is tough to find anything wrong with the Smoke other than the speed could be... read full review

Hoyt CRX 35 Review

The Bottom Line:Without a doubt the CRX 35 is a solid choice for anyone from the avid bow hunter to the 3D archer. While having similar characteristics to last year's Maxxis, the CRX 35 has several improvements as well. This rig possesses everything you want out of a quality bow and has things like the long draw option... read full review

Martin Nemesis 35 Review

The Bottom Line:The Martin Nemesis 35 is the flagship bow for the 2013 lineup. It was designed for the archer that prefers a longer ATA, and this bow fits the bill with a 35" ATA. The elongated riser, the X4 Twin Limbs, and the Nitro 3 Hybrid cams and the 7" brace height provide a solid platform with plenty of power... read full review

Bear Game Over Review

The Bottom Line:Whether you are a beginner or an archer on a budget this bow's economic price tag will be appealing to many archers. It is very smooth, quick and lightweight, all things that make this a very shootable rig. With the "ready to hunt" package option this even further makes this system a great value.

PSE Firestorm Review

The Bottom Line:The PSE Firestorm is a compact and good shooting bow that was manufactured and evolved for 8 years. With a short axle to axle length and very generous brace height, this rig is very forgiving, maneuverable, and lightweight. The bow is a good choice for tree-stand or blind hunting. While it's not a speed... read full review

Mission Voyager Review

The Bottom Line:The Voyager is the fastest Mission bow ever produced.

Hoyt Nitrum 30 Review

The Bottom Line:The Nitrum 30 is a well-designed bow that shoots like a dream and supplies a great deal of kinetic energy for hunting situations. The Nitrum's vibration after the shot is corrected with the added weight of accessories and a stabilizer, but when shooting bare bow there will be a little ring in the shooters... read full review

Bear Encounter Review

The Bottom Line:If you are a hunter on a budget or at the entry level stage of archery this bow is ideal for you.

Strother SX-Rush Review

The Bottom Line:The Strother SX Rush is not a "pretty" bow. It does not have all the bells and whistles that typically come on today's high-end bows. Those interested in a flashy bow to show off to their friends may want to look elsewhere. What shooters will notice is a bow that shoots extremely well. With a longer... read full review
