  1. #1

    Bowtech carbon rose

    Does anyone have the bowtech carbon rose? Or has anyone shot it and any thoughts or comments?

    My wife has shot one, we're planning on purchasing in the next month or so. I shot it as well because she couldn't believe how well it shot and wanted me to see if she was dreaming. First thing you'll notice is the weight, it is very easy to hold without arm fatigue. The draw cycle isn't harsh at all, its just a consistent pull from start to finish. It doesn't have a very large valley, but it doesn't want to jump or dump at full draw either. Its the quietest bow I've ever shot, and that was bare bow. There is virtually no hand shock, and it doesn't want to jump out of your hand at the shot. As I said the bow was bare, no sight. My wife was shooting 1" groupings at 20 yards just by pulling to her anchor points and releasing. I'm not a bowtech spokesperson or anything, but they hit it out of the park with this one. Go shoot one I promise you won't be sorry.

    Thanks for your input. The shop I was at said they would be getting some in in a few weeks. I saw the carbon knight and it was very light weight. She said the carbon rose was the women's bow.

    The CR is a great bow for women. The lighter weight should really be attractive to a lady. Not necessary but on any CR or CK I recommend putting a Ktech KSB-1 on for the string suppressor. It makes both those bows just purr like a kitten.

    Just bought one and it's currently at the shop being set up.

    LOVE IT! Can't wait to get it out so I can start targeting and getting ready for Spring Gobbler.

    I bought the black one. I didn't really like the camo with purple cams. The black is sweet though!

    I can say it's the only thing I don't like about it. Almost like holding onto a piece of wood.

    First post will be here I guess! I have the Heartbreaker and I tested out the carbon rose today.. same draw weight as mine and I felt as though it was harder to draw back? May have just been a fluke for me though. Also, I'm not sure how I feel about the camo riser, black limbs and purple cams.. looks a bit busy to me. Other than that, it shot really well! Maybe once they get all the kinks out I may buy the blacked out one

    My wife shot one when we were shopping for her a bow. She shot a charger, carbon rose, mission something or another and a chill r. She didn't like the carbon rose as much as the charger but as we all know personal preference. I think the main thing she doesn't like are the colors lol

    Fact is that your Heartbreaker is a bit FASTER than the CR but not as light.

    If it's weight you are looking at, The Infinite Edge is actually lighter than the CR and has a 310 IBO. Yes, it's faster. It also has a longer ATA and a 7" brace.
    The IE is an AWESOME bow.

    The CR has an ATA of 30" and a brace of 6.75
    It's the "Carbon Thing" that is all the rage now.
    I've seen it and handled it.

    Personally, I like your Heartbreaker better.

    My GF shoots an IE. She shoots 39 pounds, 24.5" and a 217 grain Vap. She's getting 235 FPS

    I shoot an Experience.

    Human life has become cheap in our "enlightened" society. Liberalism has taught these kids that there's no difference in killing a one-year-old in a stroller and killing a ten WEEK old baby in the womb! These killers are not human - they are demons spawned in the cesspool of Progressive ideology.

    Thanks, I am also looking for a bow for my girlfriend (maybe soon fiance) if she gets back into shooting. Right now she has a Browning Micro Midas 3 set at 41# and a 23.5" draw, and I have some cheap aluminum arrows on order for her to try. If she wants to get back into it, I would like to get her a "better" bow but can't justify spending the bucks on the Carbon Rose. I totally forgot about the Infinite Edge... that is an outstanding bow for anyone.

    My main issue for her is the overall weight and didn't realize that the IE is actually lighter than the CR!

    Not to mention a little faster and a LOT more room to grow. I want to try to get her up to 50# weight, and would have to buy the 50# CR and crank it down... but with the IE that's not an issue.

    My wife shoots a Quest Bliss, its set at 43#s and 26" dl, and its shooting a 258gr arrow at 234 fps.
    she really likes the bow, but its heavy and not as fast as she would like. ( its the 30-45 # model
    that maxes at 27 "s ).
    she shot the carbon rose this past weekend . it was set at 40#s and 26"s shooting the same
    258 gr arrow and it went through the crono at 253 fps ! 19 fps faster than the g5 .
    she loved the cr , very light , easy to shoot and accurate.
    she didn't like the grip till she shot it a few times then it didn't bother her.
    so she will be looking to sell her bliss for the cr.
    anyone want to buy a bow ....?????

    I have a carbon rose and have been shooting it a couple months now. For me it was actually TOO light. I added weight front and back and that helped. It shoots well for me. My draw length is 26, pulling 45#. Shoot easton DOA 500 with 80gr tip. My speed is 260 fps. No complaints about this bow. I must add that I also have a Mathews Jewel...if I had to chose between the two I would choose the Mathews.
    BTW I agree the camo and purple is a bit busy...I have the blackout and love the color. Color doesnt shoot your arrows but its nice to have!

    what kinds of speed you getting out of your jewel ?
    shes trying to get the most out of her hha , 235 just isn't fast enough for her to shoot 3d .
    imo.

    I'm thinking you would def be downgrading. It's just okay in my opinion. I loved the Strothers Hope. The Carbon Rose feels like a 2x4 in the hand compared to the Hope just my opinion

    That is plenty fast enough for 3-D... My old bow was shooting 222 and I won many a shoots with it.

    shes not the best at judging distance , and the faster the flatter.
    If she can upgrade and pick up 19 fps, and do it with less poundage. sound like win win to me.
    her Bliss is on the heavy side and the course we spend a lot of time on is about 2 miles around.

    Is it just my observation or has all the bow manufacturers become focused on weight?
    After the CE came out, it seems lighter is what they are all selling.

    Isn't it kinda funny that we buy these ultra light bows only to add weight to make them shoot able?
