2016 Bow Releases – Specifications List

The 2016 season continues the rise of what we might term the smaller bow manufacturer. Companies such as New Breed, Obsession, Xpedition and G5 and making noticeable inroads into the industry. The compound bow that these companies are producing are significant for the technology and precision they provide. It's time to broaden the horizons and take a look at what these companies have to offer.

The balance of strength and weight continues and the carbon riser is still the way in which companies are going. PSE has entered the market with the Carbon Air and Hoyt’s carbon range is still expanding with the Carbon Spyder series displaying feature improvements and modifications.

Bear Archery was fast out of the blocks again for the new season with the introduction of a couple of new flagship bows, the Escape and the Escape SD - one for the men and one for the women. Other new models such as the BR33 with a hybrid cam, the Marshal and the Wild continue a line-up of bows that provide speed on the one hand and value for money on the other.

The Bowtech Carbon range is once again available but the company has introduced a new idea in bow flexibility with the release of PowerDisc technology. This gives you the option of changing the set-up of your bow to suit your shooting needs. The technology has been built into the new Prodigy and Boss compound bows and effectively gives you three bows in one.

Martin Archery has presented a new look range of bows that has been divided into two groups, their Phenix Series that consists of two bows, and a Carbon series that comprises three new bows.

Mathews has come up with another new concept with the range of No Cam technology bows. The elimination of the traditional cams finds two circular wheels providing tracks for the cables to run smoothly.

Last year there were 8 bows that had an advertised IBO speed rating of 350 fps or higher. This year the number of bows that are advertised at 350 or higher has doubled to 16 encompassing 9 different manufacturers. The PSE Full Throttle once again tops the speed demon list with its 362-370 fps. The other speed bows include the Bowtech RPM 360, Bowtech BT-X 31, Darton DS-3900, Darton DS-3800, Elite Impulse 34, Hoyt Carbon Defiant Turbo, Hoyt Defiant Turbo, Mathews Halon, Mathews Monster Wake, Mathews Safari, Bear Escape, New Breed Blade SS, Obsession Def-Con 6, Obsession Def-Con M6, PSE Dream Season Decree ti, PSE Beast EXT.

This listing of compound bow specifications will allow you to check at a glance the bows that have been released for the 2016 season. You can see just how powerful the bows are by the IBO Speed column as well as the bows that suit the larger or smaller framed shooter. The Axle-to-Axle and Bow Weight columns will help you decide whether the size of the bow will suit your needs and the Brace Height indicates how much forgiveness you will get when shooting the bow.

Note that not all companies have announced their new releases for the 2016 season. For those companies who are yet to supply the new range we have supplied the bows from the previous season that are still advertised on the respective company websites.

If you need more information about any of the bows in the list you can click on the bow name to be taken to the details page. Use the specs list as a starting point when trying to decide which of the 2016 season bows to buy.
