    Bowtech Knight

    Spoke with my bowshop guy who sells ton of bowtechs. Says this bad boy will be high-end, carbon riser, blistering speed. Anyone else heard anything? (I wasnt planning on buying new bow, just got new insanity, but they may force me to do something rash!)

    have not heard anything but if it is true I bet it will be the best bow offered in 2014

    Ive been wrong before but I wouldn't get your hopes up on a high end speed bow. I believe its going to be a mid range price bow ( $750-$799) with a 335ish IBO, short and light.

    Yes, a high end carbon bow with a hostage rest. I doubt it.

    And cable slide, since Bowtech puts flex guard on there high ends.
    But we can hope for a high end bow. I think its going to be a longer ata since the old black night is longer ata and fast and string angle in pic looks like a longer ata bow does. But I'm sure it won't fit us long draw ppl

    Bowtech new Knight release in July, if these specs are rt it will be SICK! 33" BH 5.75 ibo 375fps weight 3.6lbsse. Picked this info up from another site. No clue how accurate but thought I'd add to the guessing, hoping, wishing and hype.

    I would agree except for 800 dollars being mid range priced lol.

    Just spoke with my local dealer , it's going to retail at 700.00 . It looks similar to the destroyer and is carbon fiber composit.

    If Bowtech has a 370+ carbon bow it most certainly would be released at the ATA show not now in July

    I've never seen so much excitement, or widely varying guesses since Christmas Eve when I was 8 years old.

    It's all good, but my guess is that I'm staying with my Invasion.

    Don't listen to your bowshop guy. I was the first shop in my region of the US to preorder. Our reps will not tell us about the bow. The only thing I know is i'm only allowed a #60 and #70 and they are only available in black. From what I paid for them its going to be a $750 dollar range bow, but my rep did tell me the design looks bad ass.

    People get so hyped up about a carbon bow. Why? Bowtech bows have always been heavier. Usually over 4 pounds. Why? Because a heavier bow holds you more steady and has less recoil and shock. If you put 370 ibo speeds in a lightweight frame like that itll most likely shake and vibe in your hand like a restaurant pager. Dont fall for the fast speed hype even from other websights. Remember when the Insanity was about to come out another sight said 400 fps and everyone believed it.

    Have you ridden a CF frame bicycle?? CF does not transfer shock and vibration like Alum. of steel. So if you had a light bow with a CF riser shooting 370, the transfer of energy to the shooter is not the same as an Alum. riser

    I for one can't wait till they manufacture a Cf riser bow. JMHO, It will do to archery what CF arrows did to alum. arrows and what CF framed bikes did to the bike industry.

    Correction... Balanced bows hold well and mass heavy are just heavy. Balanced bows are different... Speed is only a hook for some smooth shootability is a hook for others hard to say but I guarantee its not a speed bow its a mid level bow... Still gonne be cool and sounds like a very inovative change in bows AGAIN from Bowtech!

    but just because that rest is in the video doesn't mean it comes with the bow... right?

    From those prices and from what I have seen so far it will be a mid-priced bow to replace the assassin. NO CARBON bow will go for $750. Going to guess it will be 3.8lb, 335IBO, and 7in brace with the plastic handle.

    check the general archery sec. its not carbon and there is no way bowtech is ever gona make a recurve! they only care about hunting sales. they droped the specialist the only half target competition bow in the line up.
    if you guys think any of the rest of the line is good for target or 3-d competition then you are kidding yourself. it will be a hunting bow probably low ata and lower priced than the experience.
