Predator Archery Compound Hunting Bow Review
Performance: A Versatile Compound Bow That Will Work for Anyone
Predator Archery Compound Hunting Bow is built for versatility, and it is the kind of compound bow that will work for any archer out there.
According to the manufacturer, “Whether you’re a hunter, bowfishing enthusiast, or into target shooting… this incredibly unique bow offers the versatility for any enthusiast from adults, youth, and even beginner archers!”
Because this compound bow has the required power and arrow speed, it will also work for many other compound bow applications besides the three that the manufacturer highlights.
Still on the performance, it is also worth noting that while this bow will work for different kinds of users, it is not non-directional. Hence, when picking one up, you should make sure that you pick the right-hand orientation to avoid disappointments.
Flexibility: Fully Adjustable Bow
When it comes to flexibility, there is hardly any other bow out there in its class that can beat this Predator Archery product. It comes in a fully adjustable design that will ensure you can easily tweak it to suit your specific shooting style.
The draw length can be adjusted from 24.5 to 31 inches to accommodate archers with different abilities. This means that this bow will allow parents to share the same bow with their kids as it will accommodate draw lengths for both adults and youth.
For the draw weight, you get to adjust from 30 to 70 pounds, which is one of the widest range that you can get in this class of bows. Besides the wide range, it also has a 75% let-off, which means that archers will only need to bear 25% of the weight. Hence, even when at the 70-pound maximum draw weight, the archer only has to hold 17.5 pounds.
Unlike with many other compound bows, you will not need to buy a bow press for adjusting this one. The adjustments can be made without a bow press or any other similar tool as the bow is designed to allow for simple hand adjustments.
This compound bow will include the split yoke tuning system, which ensures adjustments will be easy and precise. Also, this tuning system will help ensure you get a proper arrow flight.
Design & Construction: Solid Built With Zero Plastic Cams
The first element of the Predator Archery Compound Hunting Bow that will draw many archers to it is the dual cam system. This dual cam system is what ensures it will deliver high arrow speeds. You can get arrow speeds of up to 315 FPS, which is quite impressive.
Also, with the dual cam design, this will be an easier compound bow to maintain. Hence, even if you are not very experienced at maintaining bows, it will give you an easier time, and you will not always have to take it to a professional for maintenance.
With this bow, you can also be confident of getting a long service life as it is made from some heavy-duty and highly durable materials. First off, the riser and cams are made from aluminum, which besides being sturdy is also lightweight to ensure they do not add a lot of weight to the bow.
Like all other top tier compound bows, the limbs on this one are made from fiberglass, which is a flexible and lightweight material. And still on the construction, it is also worth mentioning that the cams do not have any plastic parts.
Another element of the design worth mentioning is that this compound bow is available in two color choices, which are black and camouflage. While these might be fewer options than what many other models will provide, they are the best colors for hunting bows and are also quite classy.
Noise & Vibrations: Quiet Enough for Any Application
Dual cam compound bows are known to be super loud, which is perhaps the most significant drawback they have when compared to single cam bows. However, the Predator Archery Compound Hunting Bow is surprisingly super quiet for a double cam bow.
What makes this such a quiet compound bow is that it will include both a suppressor and a string stabilizer. The two components are highly effective at dampening the string noise to ensure you get a quieter arrow flight. Hence, when you need to go stealth, this will be the perfect bow for you.
If by any chance you still find this compound bow not silent enough for you, it is also designed to accommodate different noise dampening accessories for a stealthier operation.
Accessories: Complete Package with Every Accessory You Need
Predator Archery provides this compound bow as a complete set with all the accessories you need to start using it immediately and also to ensure fast and accurate shooting.
Key among the provided accessories is the 5 pin fiber optic sight that will be very useful when lining up for a shot and makes this a more accurate bow. This 5 pin sight has both lighting and level to make it easy to pick up your target.
There is also a brush arrow set, stabilizer, string stop, and other things like an Allen wrench and a 2-foot paper target that will also be highly useful. The only drawback when it comes to the accessories is that arrows are not included, and so you need to buy them separately.
Price: A Little Pricier But worth Every Buck
Given that this is a professional-grade and powerful compound bow with superior overall performance, you can expect it to cost more than the regular compound bows.
However, the good news is that while you will have to pay some extra bucks to land this amazing compound bow, it has been designed to ensure you get value for what you pay.
Also, for its price, you will need to do a lot of shopping around to get something as durable as it is, and with the same features and performance potential.
Another element that ensures this compound bow will deliver great value for money is the included accessories. If you were to buy the provided accessories separately, you would end up spending almost as much as what you pay for this compound bow. Hence, they are a great value addition.
This powerful and versatile compound bow is designed to cater to all kinds of archers and is also well-built and with several accessories.
With arrow speeds of up to 315 FPS and a fully adjustable design that allows you to fine-tune both draw length and weight, this is a powerful compound bow that will work for all archers. Also, it comes with everything you need to use it and will be ideal for various applications.
