    G5 Presents a New Member of the Prime Bow Family for 2014

    G5 Presents a New Member of the Prime Bow Family for 2014
    Memphis, Mich. - G5® Outdoors, the leading manufacturer in premium archery equipment is proud to introduce a new model to their popular line up of Prime™ bows for 2014, the All New Prime AlloyTM.

    The All New 2014 Prime Alloy gives you the ultimate edge on accuracy while keeping your pack light. With an IBO speed of 335, and an “Out of the Box (OTB)” true weight of 4.2 lbs. – including all dampening components, the Alloy provides the ideal blend of strength, weight, forgiveness and versatility. This is achieved by uniting Prime’s parallel cam system, all new flexing roller guard and rigid riser.

    “The new Prime Alloy is a great addition to our already solid lineup of Prime Bows,” stated CEO Matt Grace. “We are thrilled with the overall performance, design and craftsmanship of the Alloy and know that it will be atop every archer’s wish list for 2014.”
    The Alloy features G5’s exclusive Parallel Cam Technology which makes CAM LEAN a problem of the past, as this industry leading design balances the load equally on each side of the cable resulting in virtually no CAM LEAN, reduced horizontal nock travel, and reduced limb fatigue. In addition to the Parallel Cam Design, the Alloy offers a long list of features:

    • Forged-Machined 7000 Series Riser
    ○ We start with a solid 7000 series forged riser, creating the strongest platform available. Then we CNC machine to produce a precise riser that has minimal torque and flex to enhance accuracy and shootability.
    • Extra Wide Limbs
    ○ The extra-wide limbs create a solid and stable platform to increase accuracy and shootablility. The increased width also enhances limb strength and reliability in the field and the range.
    • 8190 BCY Strings
    ○ One of the toughest and most efficient bowstrings available. This BCY material is stronger, more reliable and faster.
    • Flexing Roller Guard
    ○ The all new cable roller guard features an easy adjustment for optimum clearance with any fletching and arrow combination. Combined with a high-tensile flexible steel spring which produces a more consistent and reliable system. It reduces cam movement by allowing cables to flex inward during the shot but clearing out of the way once the arrow is released.
    • Ultra Fit Grip
    ○ High-performance rubber molded grip provides extra comfort and a consistent grip for all archers. It can be removed for archers demanding a thinner grip but still feels amazing in hand.

    What is the percent let-off, and is there any adjustment beyond its rating (higher)? Another review spoke of the short valley, and the need to hold on to it at full draw, so percentage of let-off would be a key item for me, as well as any adjustment capability. Thanks!!

    Ever hear of the One? Tour? Contender Elite? etc?
    Unlike those that shoot a Dixon Ticonderoga, I shoot bows. All kinds of bows.

    My opinions are MY OPINIONS. Take them for what they are worth.

    Yes. Why does every bow company have to come out with 4,652 new models every year?

    I had a Centroid that felt a lot closer to the Elites and it was considered 80%, however with the Impact, Defy, and Alloy they use a different cam that isn't as stiff up front but is now 75% on let off. I tried both the defy and impact and noticed the difference in feel from the centroid I owned. Good looking and good feeling bows though, just like the feel of the Centroid and Elites better.

    People were just guessing with the 3.9# weight, I hadn't seen where it was supposedly going to have BCY X strings on it so I can't comment on that one.
    Sometimes nothing is a really cool hand.

    Kinda surprised they are staying with 8190. Was a 1 and done with everyone else.

    This is a funny post on a thread about a new bow from a company that is only releasing one new model for the year.

    Yes I can and I do. I have an apex8 but at my height and dl 6-6 31.5 dl there is a lot of finger pinch. I would like to get a bow in the 45-46 at a with a decent cam system other then the hoyt round wheels. I've shot them and they are way to slow. All I'm saying is with all this so called technology that everyone has it shouldn't be an issue to produce a bow to my specs and get 280-300 fps

    Companies build for the masses, not for MR get greedy. Why don't you have a frankenbow built for you or why don't you contact the companies and see if they'll make you something. I just saw on another thread where Darton will make to order. It'll cost but hey, it's custom. Check out this frankenbow by b0w_bender
