QAD Ultrarest Integrate MX Review

When the 2019 Mathews flagship line launched last November, Mathews and Quality Archery Designs (QAD) announced the release of the Ultrarest Integrate MX rest which is the first arrow rest designed to pair with the machined Integrate Rail featured on the 2019 Mathews Vertix, Traverse, and TX-5. I briefly covered some of the advantages provided by the Integrate Rail in my Vertix review but to quickly sum up; unlike traditional arrow rests which rely on a single screw tapped into the Berger Button hole, Mathews new “Integrate Rail” section allows for a more secure, ergonomic, easy to install and weight...

MTN Ops Slumber Tea Review

Spend just a few minutes perusing the internet and you will no doubt come across advertisements for dozens of supplement companies all peddling products that promise to provide you with superior performance from the mountain top to the bedroom. Like most of today’s hip hop artists, these brands’ seem to blow up over night with a lot of hype and fan fair and after one or two hits they quickly fall out of relevance as soon as the next company with a cool logo and well known ambassador emerges.

Well most of the features and impressions from that review carry over because the only difference between these bows (aside from their risers) is their grips. That and the fact the Helix is only offered in 30” axle-to-axle standard or 34”axle-to-axle Ultra models. Hoyt decided to limit their turbo offering to the RX-3 line for 2019.     Helix 342 FPS (ATA)               30½" Axle-to-Axle 6" Brace Height 4.3 lbs   RX-3 342 FPS (ATA) 30½" Axle-to-Axle...

2019 PSE Evoke 31 First Impressions

Right off the bat I will admit I have never been drawn to PSE bows. I can’t explain it but they just have never held any sort of allure for me. I know they have been making fast, accurate, and all around quality bows for quite some time I just never shot with anyone who was a die-hard PSE shooter. But after trying last year’s 2018 Evolve and now the 2019 Evoke, I now wonder if maybe I just need to expand the variety of shooters I hang with.
