The archery world is booming, and anyone on the hunt for new equipment is now faced with the not-so-bad problem of having too many great products to choose from. Here are the new bows and crossbows I want to take afield this year. Tomorrow, the year’s best new arrows and accessories.
From newcomer New Breed Archery, the Blade compound bow has a very smooth draw cycle, with a long valley, and it eases back into the let-off to a solid back wall. It’s 34 inches axle to axle, with a draw length of 27 to 30 inches and a forgiving 6.5-inch brace height. It weighs just four pounds and shoots 335 fps. For a one-of-a-kind bow, order a custom-fit aluminum riser.
