    Mathews sent over its brand new Phase 4 29 hunting bow, so I put together this first impressions review and speed test. This bow has an axle-to-axle length of 29 inches, a brace height of 6 inches and an IBO rated speed of 340 feet per second. There is also a 33-inch version with a 6.5-inch...

    Just a year after introducing a new binary cam system and an in-line Picatinny sight mount, Hoyt Archery unveiled a brand new riser design for 2022 on the carbon RX-7 Ultra they sent me for testing. And this year I finally learned why there was never an RX-2 or RX-5 in Hoyt’s lineup. It seems...

    If you are a long-time viewer of the ArcheryTalk YouTube channel, you’ll know that I’ve never had an opportunity to get an Elite bow in for testing. That all changed this year when this Elite Envision showed up at my door. Specs include an axle-to-axle length of 31”, brace height of 6 ⅞” and a...

    In recent years Mathews has come up with a bow formula that just works. And while there are no major changes to how my V3X 29 test bow shoots this year, there is some innovative technology that helps set it apart from prior year offerings. Before we get to that, let’s talk about specs. The...

    I didn’t get a chance to test out a PSE bow last year, so I was very excited to get a PSE EVO XF 33 in for review this time around. Specs on the EVO XF 33 include a 33-inch axle-to-axle length, 6 ¾” brace height, and 340 foot-per-second rated speed. This bow comes with two cam options - the E2...

    There have been very few truly unique features on compound bows in recent years and now there is one less…Prime has done away with its double side-by-side cam setup and introduced the new Inline cam system on the Prime Inline 3 I have been testing for the past few months. Before we dig too deep...

    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...

    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...
