PSE X-Force Vendetta XS Review

The Bottom Line:The Vendetta XS is a top quality and great shooting rig with very adjustable and extremely smooth drawing eccentric system. With a solid back wall, this bow is balanced well and aims easily. While a bare bow could have less vibration, when fully equipped this bow is a great shooter. Many experts firmly... read full review

Mathews Conquest 4 Review

The Bottom Line:In short, the Mathews Conquest 4 is a high end target bow with the long ATA and good brace height that is very capable of putting up great scores in stiff competition. Also one of Mathews' lightest competition rigs it isn't a bare to walk around the ranges all day. It is very customizable to the specific... read full review

Mathews FX Review

The Bottom Line:The Mathews FX is a quality hunting bow at a very reasonable price. While the FX is not the quietest bow out there, installing a decent silencing package will make it quiet enough for hunting. Admittedly, the FX is a good shooting and accurate hunting bow. However, it is not as good as some of the modern... read full review

Mathews Legacy Review

The Bottom Line:The Mathews Legacy is a quality hunting bow that was (and still is) very popular among hunters. Although the Legacy could be a bit lighter and faster, it's a very good shooter: quiet, smooth, and forgiving. Despite it's been discontinued by Mathews, this rig is still very popular and is a hot seller... read full review

Mission Voyager XT Review

The Bottom Line:The Voyager XT is the most expensive bow made by Mission to date. With that being said, it has a lot of high-end features not available on many of today's budget bows. With Mission's longest available axel-to-axel measurement, a forgiving brace height, more adjustable limbs, and draw lengths ranging... read full review

Mathews Z7 Xtreme Review

The Bottom Line:The Mathews Z7 Xtreme is a very compact and high quality bow with the same impressive shootability characteristics as the original Z7.

PSE Dream Season EVO

out of 10 reviews
PSE Dream Season EVO Review

The Bottom Line:The PSE Dreamseason EVO is a great addition to the already successful X Force line. A bow this smooth is typically much slower; because of this shooters are equipped with a faster bow with more kinetic energy than before without a more extreme draw or added draw weight. With several technology upgrades... read full review

Bear Mauler Review

The Bottom Line:While the Bear Mauler is without a doubt a bow hunter's rig, it would be good for the recreational shooter as well.

Hoyt Rampage Review

The Bottom Line:While the Hoyt Rampage is not the quietest rig out there, it's a good shooting bow at a very affordable price. Although this bow could have less hand shock and vibration, installing a good silencing package helps to make it quieter and improve shootabillity. This is a very easy drawing bow with a smooth... read full review
