2020 Flagship Model First Impressions!

All of the 2020 flagship models from the major manufacturers are now out! Below are our thoughts on the models we have shot so far. Keep in mind these are our first impressions. We have had limited time with each bow though we did purchase a VXR 28 and PSE NXT 31 so expect in depth reviews of those bows to follow. We'll likely also cover Hoyt's new offerings in more depth over the coming months simply because of all of the flack they have been receiving (both legitimate and unwarranted) and feel this deserves further examination once emotions have...

Favorite Hunting Bows of 2019

“Best Bows” lists are usually sponsor driven click bait where publications regurgitate talking po Favorite Hunting Bows of 2019 “Best Bows” lists are usually sponsor driven click bait where publications regurgitate talking points you could have just as easily read directly from the manufacturer’s site. Its 2019, every flagship bow from major manufacturers is a quality product. Debating which one is “best” is completely subjective and has more to do with the preferences and application of the end user and the accessories they use, than it does with the overall quality of the bows themselves. But! That doesn’t mean we...

2019 Hoyt Helix - The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

This is going to be a quick one… You may have seen our way too early review of the RX-3 a few weeks back. 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 Hoyt RX-3 First Look Review

Of all the 2019 bows that have dropped so far the Hoyt RX-3 has been by far been the most intriguing. Now that is not to nock (pun intended) any of the other brands but most of new flagship bows that came out thus far represent slightly enhanced or simply different axle to axle additions to their 2018 line ups. So if you liked the 2018 Prime’s, PSE’s, or Bow-tech’s, odds are you will like their 2019 models too. To be clear, those are all great bows and I am sure the 2019 models will likewise be equally great if...
