Hoyt Carbon Spyder Turbo
User rating:
out of 2 reviews
Hoyt Carbon Spyder Turbo Review

The Bottom Line:Hoyt is finally offering a third style bow in the carbon riser series. In the past, Hoyt has stuck with a longer version and a shorter model, but never the Turbo. The long awaited addition of a speed bow in the carbon riser series is something never seen before. The only way to experience the performance... read full review

Mathews Conquest Triumph

out of 3 reviews
Mathews Conquest Triumph Review

The Bottom Line:The Mathews Conquest Triumph is a high quality, high end target bow from axle to axle. Capable of producing same great speeds all while being very forgiving are some great attributes; let alone it's one of the smoothest drawing target bows that Mathews has put into production. Also, this is the quietest... read full review

Hoyt Spyder 30 Review

The Bottom Line:Hoyt has always produced great shooting bows, and the Sypder is no exception to that. Hunting bows are getting shorter and shorter to meet the demands of a lot of hunters, and this bow does just that. With a lightweight frame of 3.8 pounds, tons of adjustability, and easily tuned, the Spyder is a great... read full review

Mathews Ignition Review

The Bottom Line:In summary, the Ignition is a great value if you are looking for a bow without all the bells and whistles that the higher end models feature. The Ignition would make a great hunting bow for a woman who is interested in getting started in archery. The only reason that it should not be recommended as... read full review

Elite Option 7 Review

The Bottom Line:The Elite Option 7 is a great bow with a favorable axel-to-axel measurement, a forgiving 7-inch brace height, and an IBO rating with 332 feet per second of acceptable performance. For some shooters in love with Elite, the Option 7 has many of the shootability characteristics from previous model years.... read full review

Mathews MR8 Review

The Bottom Line:The MR8 offers arrow speeds up to 330 feet per second without sacrificing brace height like other speed bows. The draw is very nice and easy to adjust to. Shooters will find it very easy to get used to the forgiving 8-inch brace height as well. The 4.45-pound bare bow may be a little heavy for some... read full review

G5 Quest Storm Review

The Bottom Line:The G5 Quest Storm was introduced in 2015 and marketed for the shorter draw archer. It was a redesign of the Quest Radical the Storm gives better poundage adjustment, a slimmer grip, and slightly lighter overall weight. It has a 31" ATA, 30# - 60# draw weight adjustment range, and a 290 fps IBO. The... read full review

Bowtech Invasion CPX Review

The Bottom Line:The BowTech Invasion CPX really is a flagship bow. It truly stands alone with a very impressive design by combining the speed and quiet nature comparable to the 2010 Destroyer Series and the shootability of any of BowTech's Center Pivot models packed into a short axle to axle bow of just over 31".

Bowtech Destroyer LE Review

The Bottom Line:This Destroyer 350 limited edition is hands down a shooter. It is hard to find things unpleasant about this bow. Those in the market for a speed bow should give this rig a chance even though it doesn't have any brand new gimmicky technology. The bottom line is the destroyer 350 is built to perform.... read full review

PSE Brute Force Lite Review

The Bottom Line:The Brute Force Lite is a solid hunting bow. After looking at the price tag, it becomes one of the best values on the market for a compact hunting bow. It should appeal to brand new shooters, shooters with some growing left to do, or those just looking for a bow a bit easier on the shoulders. The MH... read full review

G5 Quest QS33 Review

The Bottom Line:The Quest QS33 may be one of the best all-around packages for the money we will ever see in the archery market. The only real draw back this bow has is the draw length can only be adjusted in 1" increments. With one of the smoothest draw cycles out there and at a price everyone can afford, this bow could... read full review

The Bottom Line:Overall, those who enjoyed the original Eliminator or Mathews DXT are going to appreciate the changes made resulting in the Eliminator 2.
