All,

The links below contain the initial product reviews for the 2010 Compound Bow Evaluation. The introduction will be provided soon. 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 "Target Bow" category is new for 2010 and I hope to provide some meaningful information for those of you interested in that segment of of the sport. Please use this thread to discuss the results, ask any questions, or provide feedback. Your thoughts and suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Regards,

Anthony Barnum

Yes, there will be more to come. I hope to have them added to the first post to keep the reports easy to find.

So again, the true speed is mostly far away from the advertised speed.
It seems that at 7" brace hight about 315 fps are near the reality

I might have to look back into the primal cause last time I look I thought it was only a 29" bow but now I see it can go up to 30". One more back on the list!

Nicely done, Your "reviews" are really the only one's that hold any credence with me due to actually using objective numbers....

Here's a few I'd like to see...
Bear Attack
Hoyt Maxxis of course
Destroyer
M7
Elite Judge or GT500
PSE vendetta XL

Wow, 3 different requests already and so far I'm striking out :eek:
Just take it with a grain of salt on what people want. I just think it's cool that you take the time to inform us on what is available to you. Thanks for your hard work:thumbs_up I always read every report on each bow you test.:slice:

Looking at the pit viper.
It looks like there is a typo. The draw force curve maxes a 72.3 lbs of stored and it says the arrows all have 79+ lbs of energy.


****edit****
nevermind I miss read the numbers.

Good Job. I love reading the reviews and picking apart the numbers.
I wish there was a way to torture test to check durability.

The arrows have 57+ lbs. of energy, but dynamic efficiency is 79+. The graphs didn't come out as cleanly as I hoped - sorry for the confusion.

I'd like to see a review of the Elite Z28. I shot this bow today and it seems to be awesome in my hands. A peek at the performance numbers would be lovely.
