2017 Bow Releases – Specifications List

The continued search for faster, smoother, lighter...better compound bows continues and the 2017 season has been dominated by improvements on previously released compound bows. Many of the leading compound bow manufacturers have taken their successful existing models and made some changes to the cam system for a smoother draw or stripped an ounce or two of weight off.

As we know, the annual ATA Show at the start of each year marks the chance to get a look at the new compound bow models for the forthcoming season. This year we have been treated to a further strengthening of the carbon technology as well as small but significant changes to some of the cam systems that are powering the top line bows.

Flagship bows to look out for from the leading manufacturers for this year include the Bear Legend Series bows, Bowtech Reign, Hoyt Pro Defiant, PSE Evolve and the Mathews Halon 32. it is the Halon 32 that appears to have garnered the greatest amount of interest and it is being offered this year in three brace heights - five, six and seven inch to suit an even wider section of the hunting public.

We like to keep track of the number of bows that are reaching extreme speeds each year and the growth in those numbers. Two years ago the number of bows available with an advertised IBO speed rating of 350 fps or higher was 8. Last year that number grew to 16 and this year that figure has increased again to 21. That's 22 compound bows that may now be classed as real speed demons. The PSE Full Throttle continues to sit at the top of the list with an IBO rating of 362-370. The new Obsession Huracon enters the market to closely trail with an IBO rating of 366 fps.

This listing of compound bow specifications will allow you to check at a glance the bows that have been released for the 2017 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 2017 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 2017 season bows to buy.
