    If you were expecting a minor warming over of hunting bows from Hoyt this year, you were in for a heck of a surprise. The new Hoyt Carbon RX-5 Ultra is absolutely loaded with new features. But first, let’s look at the specs. The RX-5 Ultra has an axle-to-axle length of 34 inches a brace height...

    I've had a chance to get the Prime Nexus 2 set up and tuned and figured I'd share my first impressions. As well, I ran the Nexus 2 through my chronograph for a speed test using a 350-grain Gold Tip Platinum Pierce arrow and a heavier 477-grain Gold Tip AirStrike arrow. I haven't had much of a...

    I have been shooting the PSE EVO NXT 33 for the past couple of months as part of ArcheryTalk’s 2020 Hunting Bow Shootout. This is the final of five reviews I have put together. I’ve outfitted the EVO NXT 33 with a Trophy Ridge React H5 sight and QAD HDX arrow rest. As for specs, the NXT 33 has...

    I have been shooting the Hoyt Axius Alpha for the past few months as part of ArcheryTalk’s 2020 Hunting Bow Shootout. I’ve outfitted the Axius Alpha in a Black Gold Pro sight and Trophy Taker Smackdown Pro Click arrow rest. As for specs, the Axius Alpha has a compact axle-to-axle length of...

    I have been shooting the Bowtech Revolt for the past six months or so as part of ArcheryTalk’s 2020 Hunting Bow Shootout. I have outfitted the bow with a Trophy Ridge React H5 sight and Hamskea Trinity Hunter arrow rest. The Revolt has an axle-to-axle length of 30 inches, generous brace height...

    I have been shooting the Mathews VXR 28 for months now as part of ArcheryTalk’s 2020 Hunting Bow Project. I’ve outfitted this bow with a Black Gold Ascent Whitetail sight, QAD Integrate arrow rest and Hamskea Raptor peep. As for specs, the VXR 28 has an axle-to-axle length of 28 inches, brace...

    Over the past six months or so I’ve been gathering test bows for my favorite video of the year – the ArcheryTalk Target Bow Shootout. The contenders this year, in the order I received them, are the Mathews TRX 36, Prime Black 9, Bowtech Reckoning 38, and Hoyt Invicta 37 SVX. You may notice...

    As a fan of the Bowtech Fanatic Series, it was a great day when I finally got my hands on the Bowtech Reckoning 38 target bow. The Reckoning series has, in my experience, the single greatest tuning technology in the business and I was excited to try it out. Check out my long-term review of the...

    I've been shooting the Prime Black 9 for months now and when comparing accuracy, draw cycle, and fit and finish you'd never know it costs $500 less than any other target bow I've been testing this year. My long-term review video is below. If you can't see the embedded video above, here is a...

    I've had a chance to put hundreds of arrows through the new Mathews VXR 28 and 31.5 the past couple of weeks. Long story short, the bows are very similar in feel to the Triax/Vertix. Super smooth draw cycle with maybe a hair more valley than the Vertix (similar to the Triax if memory serves)...

    I've been shooting the Hoyt Helix Ultra for a few months now as part of ArcheryTalk's 2019 Hunting Bow Project. Here is my long-term review. Pull back the string on the Helix and you are greeted by a very light-feeling draw cycle that has just the slightest dip into the valley. This is what I...

    I've been shooting the Prime Logic CT3 for a few months now as part of ArcheryTalk's 2019 Hunting Bow Project. Here is my long-term review. The draw cycle of the Logic CT3 is on the short list for my favorites this year. In fact, I probably like it even more than the CT9, which I covered in our...

    I've been shooting the Bowtech Realm SR6 for a few months now and below you'll find my final, long-term review video. This is the third of seven hunting bow reviews that are coming as part of ArcheryTalk's 2019 Hunting Bow Project. I'll wrap things up with a seven-bow shootout video in the...

    After a couple months of shooting, here is my final review of the PSE Supra Focus target bow. With an MSRP of about $1,100, the Supra Focus is affordable when compared to PSE's flagship target bow - the Perform-X - which retails for $600 more. It's a lot of value for an accurate and easy to...

    The third bow in our 2018 Hunting Bow Project is the APA Mamba 34TF. Really impressed with the features on this bow and the ability to work on it without a press. Don't love the stock string/cable set though. If you can't see the embedded video above, here is a direct link -...

    The Hoyt Pro Force is an interesting addition to our 2018 Target Bow Project. This bow, which replaces the Hyper Edge, is a part hunting bow and part target bow. In fact, its specs are identical to the Double XL hunting bow. The only real differences are a shoot-through riser design, modular...

    Here is my long-term review of the Bear LS-6. I was pretty skeptical about shooting a 5-inch brace height bow, but I came away impressed at how accurate the bow was for me. There were, however, some quirks that I talk about in the video. If you can't see the embedded video above, here's a...
