    2009 Compound Hunting Bow Evaluations ...

    All,

    The links below contain the introduction and initial product reviews for the 2009 Compound Hunting Bow Evaluation. The format for this year's evaluation is very similar to last year's in that individual write-ups are provided for each compound bow. The "Long-Draw" category is new for 2009 and I'm hopeful we can provide some meaningful information for those of you with longer draw lengths. Please use this thread to discuss the results, ask any questions, or provide feedback. We'd love to hear your thoughts!

    Regards,

    Anthony Barnum

    Anthony, make sure you add the Rytera Alien to the list...

    Good stuff! Amazing how the numbers - while differences are small actually translate well into personal shooting experience. Will be anxious to see the Elite z28 out there- Imagine that's on the list.

    You should consider some youth archers testing some youth bows that have poundage over 40 draw weight....just a suggestion.

    Are there any specific models that you would suggest? We do have a "short-draw" test category that includes 50# peak draw-weight and 26" draw length. Is that what you are asking for?

    So, the speed for this tested 2009 bows is with 60#, 7" to 7,5" bh and 29" dl 296 up to 316 fps.

    Nothing we haven't had in the last years.

    Now, I wait for the speed bow tests, for example, the Monster from Mathews.

    Unfortunately, there has only been a few entries into the speed bow category so far this year.

    Any other suggested entries besides the Monster?

    i think the pse omen would be a definite addition to this test.

    I am interested in seeing the r2b2 Pearson bows (either the tx-4 or z-34 tested) and a comparison chart would be cool.

    Me too. I know Pearson is in a transition phase at this point but I have been unsuccessful in my attempts to reach them.

    my opinion ???

    well anthony i feel a couple mathews bows should be included. especially if you do the pse bow madness,,,a reezin comparison should also be done.

    if you do a monster review,,,then a pse x-force or pse omen should be done...i know the omen is a later addition,,,,but actually its only a month or two away.

    and as always,,,thank you for your dilligence....
