Mathews Genesis Mini
User rating:
out of 1 review
Mathews Genesis Mini Review

The Bottom Line:Weighing only 2 pounds and having the draw weight range of only 6 to 12 lbs, the Mathews Genesis Mini is an ideal bow for small kids from 3 to 8 years old. Admittedly, this is a very well built bow with quality components. That is why it has a very good resale value, meaning it will be less expensive... read full review

PSE Drive
User rating:
out of 14 reviews
PSE Drive Review

The Bottom Line:PSE has produced a compact bow with a forgiving brace height of 7.5-inches capable of 326 feet per second with hunters in mind. Going against the lightweight bow trend, the Drive's 4.6-pound weight will be welcomed by some and rejected by others. The bow is as silent and shock free as they come, and... read full review

Mathews Z9
User rating:
out of 8 reviews
Mathews Z9 Review

The Bottom Line:The Mathews Z9 is a forgiving bow due to its long brace height of 8 3/4" and slightly reflexed riser. With the smooth shooting Z9 Cam, the Z9 will provide shootable speed for those shooting a draw length greater than 30". With an IBO of 312, the Z9 will only appeal to those archers with a draw length... read full review

Hoyt TurboHawk Review

The Bottom Line:The Hoyt TurboHawk is a very popular and great shooting bow at a very affordable price. With nearly identical technologies and specs, the TurboHawk is almost as good as the ever popular Alphamax 32 and yet it's cheaper. Equipped with high quality components, this is a very lightweight, durable, and high... read full review

Martin Tiger Review

The Bottom Line:The Martin Tiger is a very affordable youth bow suitable for small kids.

Martin Exile Review

The Bottom Line:The Martin Exile is a great bow to bring somebody into archery with, very forgiving, fast and smooth drawing; what a better way to introduce somebody to the sport. It seems as if Martin built this bow specifically for a hunter that needs a bow to get them wherever they might need to go; figuring in the... read full review

Mathews Z7 Magnum Review

The Bottom Line:The Z7 Magnum is the fastest single cam bow in Mathew's 2011 fleet. With a fast but very shootable ZX Single Cam, a comfortable grip, and parallel limb design, the Magnum could be shot well by any archer who has a little experience. Being extremely quiet and vibration free when shot only with the standard... read full review

Mathews MR6 Review

The Bottom Line:For those shooters demanding a hunting bow that is amazingly fast, the MR6 has a lot to offer. Although the weight of this bow is a little heavy, it has speed that is at the top of its class. Those in the market for a speed bow have come to terms with a more aggressive draw cycle, although the MR6... read full review

Mathews MR7 Review

The Bottom Line:The Mathews McPherson Series MR7, which retails for $999.00, sets the bar high for a shootable speed bow. Many shooters flocked to the M7 last year with the characteristics that set it apart from other bows, even the other bows in the Monster Series. The MR7 still has the blazing speed, the forgiving... read full review

When combined with the R.A.K package this offers you and very convenient and versatile package that will appeal to many archers this year. Even though... read full review

Bowtech SWAT Review

The Bottom Line:The SWAT is a fantastic offering by Bowtech with hardly any negatives at all.

With adjustability options... read full review

Mathews eZ7 Review

The Bottom Line:The eZ7 by Mathews is a sweet shooting bow that hasn't lost much speed (IBO 321fps) to accomplish its smooth shooting nature. Being whisper quiet due to the design of the bow and the silencing package installed, this bow has all the features that make a bow truly a masterpiece to shoot. The balance... read full review

Mathews Hyperlite Review

The Bottom Line:All in all, the Hyperlite would make a great bow for any hunter who does not insist on having the fastest bow. It is no slouch, coming in at 325 fps, but other bows can shoot around 350 fps, making it seem slow to someone who is used to shooting higher speeds. Young archers and females will benefit from... read full review
