Nice video really fun to watch. It is good when someone makes a video where a product is not pushed. I had similar experience with my first bow ever Bear Cruzer G2. I had severe hand shock.After adjusting the draw weight and adding 3 ounce of lead weight in to the riser now my bow is completely smooth and the shock is gone. Regarding the draw cycle I can see how you are suffering when you are pulling the 70 pounds on performance. I was in the same spot now I drop the weight to 56 pounds and man I love shooting the bow. The point I am making is when I was shooting at 70 pound ( actually more like 68) I was able to do it but I didn't enjoy it. I bought my bow for fun and enjoyment not to punish or injure myself. I am not sure why people believe they need to have the bow set at 70 pounds . If the purpose is hunting precision is way more important then 20 % more penetration . Killing an animal only takes a small cut in the right place not sticking a deer on a stick .

Gone back watched your videos seeing the issues. That truly might have been a lemon if its having those odd issues. I shot all these bows and then some. Not just a few times as I go to the local shops as often as possible before I finally got my Revolt X. Sux that it did not perform well in your tests. I stacked bows very closely and got down to mathews 28,PSE NXT33/31, and Revolt X. If I had any issues like those it would have been outed in first round as well. Oh well do your build video already lol!

I think from what I'm hearing, the longer draw is the issue... Could be a 🍋 not sure. I'll get to the bow build video when I get arrows done

To each their own and it’s actually nice to hear more criticisms and honesty of these flagship bows. I watched dozens of videos on bow reviews and they were always “They are all great, just personal preference.” That being said and I actually ended up choosing the Revolt X. I went from a Diamond SB-1 and obviously going from a beginner to a flagship was night and day better. You should contact Bowtech and have them look at it. I had issues but none that you spoke of. I went through two sets of rollers on the flex arm before them sending a whole new arm. 500+ arrows later and it’s good now, but something they may want to look into. Draw in comfort mode is so smooth and for cable stops has a firm wall. Liking the videos and it would be nice for more people that are able to, do similar videos that give better reviews on the bows.

I own this bow, when i was going through the paces with it i shot next to a way over priced hoyt carbon rx-4 ultra and a matthews vxr, the bowtech was much smoother then both and i had no vibration unstabilized. Im no John dudley but this bow did its job.

I own the Bowtech BTX 28 and it has a three setting adjustment for the cam. It has performance, classic, and comfort. Mine does not operate like this and is very intuitive. With that said, I had it on performance for the first years I shot the bow but in the last two years I have gone all the way down to comfort because of that back wall let off you were describing. In comfort it is a dream. In performance the let down is very, very dramatic.
Brandon Mcdonald

I put the bowtech away for about a month and just got it all set back up.long story short, after doing a bunch of work to it I've got it on comfort at a shorter draw and it's a nice draw cycle.

@Brandon Mcdonald thanks for.the feedback. I'm in the market for a bow, and the Hoyt Alpha's are a little to aggressive draw wise for me. The VXR is good. But I'm waiting to try a Revolt when my shop gets lefty. I hear good things but you never know until it's in your hands.

I put it down for a month to finish the other bows. I'm done with the other 4 and back on the bowtech. Bowtech reached out to me after I posted this. Hopefully we will have a call to go through everything this week. I screwed the cams all the way left and all the way right and they actually feel better. Not sure if something was out that popped back in? Still kicks out on me but I thinks it's my hand with their narrow grip...

You spend ~5 min in a 16 min video talking about how you set up the cam adjustment incorrectly but admit you didn't read the manual or take time to do any research before messing with something under high tension. Stay away from firearms please....

Bradon, there are so many things with your review and description of this bow I do not know where to start. You either have something really really wrong or out of whack. I almost get the feeling that you went into this "review" with the intent not to like this bow. I would not be surprised of one of the other bows you review get a glowing review and maybe we find out they are now supporting the channel. It's hard to take you seriously when the pin indicator goes into the cam in a position that the actual draw length is printed on that cam confuses you but changing the draw length on a Prime is just so easy? Not buying it
Todd Lymburner
Todd Lymburner 2 meses atrás
The Arrow Guru he clearly is intentionally trying to disparage Bowtech as every other review has it being one of the best draw cycles of any bow. I have a RevoltX and I bought a RX4 and shoot the rest of the new bows. Bowtech made good bows this year. I would say the VXR is the best bow this year and the RevoltX is right there behind it. Or he is messing with the bow taking it apart and trying to adjust it and he himself has no idea what he’s doing. He did a video about why he won’t shoot pse however the entire video is about a particular bow shop. He’s doing stuff for attention nothing more.

I’m watching this after spending my day shooting every flagship bow I could get my hands on today, bowtech revolt, revolt x, Mathews VXR 28&31.5, elite Kure, Carbon RX4 hot axius ultra. I thought the revolt and the revoltx were hands and shoulders above everything other than the grip on the carbon RX4, the axius wasn’t close, the Hoyt draw cycle wasn’t close. The revolt x at 70# felt easier than the Hoyt at 65#, and everything else was terrible in comparison, very disappointed with the Mathews, I’ll be going with a revolt, if I could put the RX4 grip on it I’d have the perfect bow.

ACTUALLY... In his review he dogs on the thin/weak-looking cams. Fact is, they are designed that way (I was told by a BOWTECH rep) to act as a safe-guard. If/when the bow is dry-fired, the cams crush instead of the limbs blowing up. I know this to be true, no I won't go into details... ;) I'd rather replace thin/fast cams than limbs any day.

I'm now laughing so hard, you need to stick to practicing, not reviewing. "Shooting off to the left.. " so I ran around in the rain for sympathy. I'd take that bow and have literally no problem. I shoot mathews but if you actually bought a bow that is so terrible for over $1,000 you need to stop and speak with someone who knows what's what. Also, I give your shoulder and bicep a few more months before you wont have to worry about drawing a bow other than with your crayons. Good laugh though, cant wait for your "shooting results " lmao

I had a massive brain malfunction with the stud in my Stan release, luckily the release only broke the arrow retainer on my Hamskea rest as it went sailing through my bow. But otherwise, yes I love my Stan Perfx as well. Thanks for the objective view of the bow. I really like my RealmX but I'm not an every year bow guy and there is just something about everything going on with the Bowtech that makes me want something simpler and less moving parts.

The only draw I do in the video is showing the bow when I had missed the draw module placement. I was showing how hard it was to draw. So, you're correct, if I always had to draw that way, it would be terrible. I may not have made that clear in the video. Thanks for watching.

The Arrow Guru
The Arrow Guru 2 meses atrás
You should get your facts straight before you comment. Bowtech was not "found guilty" of anything. Bowtech reached an agreement with Mathews over claims of infringement. Out of court with no judgement after several of the patient claims were actually thrown out by a judge. If you read the original court filings it is obvious that Mathews wanted to tie this up in court by throwing their patient book at the filing. These have to be litigated one at a time. Most of these claims were thrown out by the court. There were only a few more and they were based on technology that Bowtech has moved away from so, they found that it was more financially prudent to settle than to continue to defend the claim. This is not an admission of guilt, not a court ruling or judgement. It was a business decision. This is one of the things that is wrong with the archery industry, people like this who make comments like that. Grow up, get the facts straight or keep it to yourself.

These bow manufacturers are adding all kinds of adjustments to tune a bow, it's a selling point and a horrible one, how many adjustments do you need on top of the fall away, idk I've been shooting Mathews and it's literally tuned first shot, and if not the first, the 2nd no more then 3 that I've ever had to do. Micro tune fall away and spine align your arrows and you're in the money!

Did you try the comfort setting? While I would say I preferred the VXR and RX4 over the Revolt X, the comfort setting on the Revolt X is much, much better than the performance. The performance setting only gives you an extra 7 FPS, but makes the draw cycle poor.

I own a Revolt X and it is the first bowtech I have owned. Shot all the flagship bows and chose revolt x based on very smooth draw cycle, valley which is good for hunting elk (can hold for a long time easily), essentially ZERO hand shock and the deadlock tunability. Mine is very well balanced with a typical stabilizer. There is NONE of the “kickout” you describe. My impression was more in line the guy from Lusk Archery Adventures. I believe your issues with this bow arise from either a lemon of a bow, a very poorly tuned bow (?cam timing...or did you mess something up while playing with cams) or perhaps your shooting form.

Bowtech makes a fine bow. However, longer draw guys, like me at 30.5", know that the draw cycle is harsh at that length. I liked the SR6, but too much hump and dump for me. I think this is a down year for Bowtech, despite the great technology in their deadlock cams.

Hey boss was setting/tuning one up here for a fellow experienced something similar. To reduce that and almost eliminate that I played around with the string stop positioning and seemed to resolve it. Also didn’t see you check your timing at all “dumbass” I put groups through it only out to 40yds but all 3 shot groups were touching and cutting fletching. That’s with cheaper XT arrows and garbage factory fletching.

So, let me get this straight: Dude gets his hand on quite possibly the most highly tunable archery product available for just over $1,000 and basically ASSUMED how to make an adjustment to it without consulting THE MANUAL (which dude obviously has... ahem). And because dude did it wrong, now he's got the audacity to create a BRvid video complaining about it and essentially blaming the company for his own poor decisions and stupidity? Seriously? Dude, get over yourself and get a real life. In saying that... bow jumping is a legit concern. I get it. Props to him for showcasing (???) that concern. BUT, such finely tuned weapons come with instructions for a reason, dude. If you adjust a gun wrong and it blows up in your face because you did it wrong... I think most responsible people can see what's really going on here. Add to all that the whining and complaining about the rain, smoking cigars and gloating... dude just needs to get over himself! He should probably be paying Bowtech another $1,000 just for being an idiot. After paying Bowtech back, he should really just DELETE this assinine video and make a new one apologizing to everyone on BRvid and associated social media for wasting our time with his own foolish decision making ability, and for basically being an idiot, which is the one thing he did do very well in this video. If he got paid to make this video, whoever paid him should probably take possession of this video and delete it because they seriously just got ripped off big time. The only purpose this video serves is how to be a complete idiot.

@Brandon Mcdonald ... you kno.... I have to confess that your response here is certainly more compassionate. I think you're starting to put it together. You're a Matthews guy. I totally get it. This particular bow is set up a bit differently than you were apparently expecting. But think about it for a second. What would your impression be if you found a BRvid video like yours made by someone who did what you did with a Matthews bow. C'mon. Your a Matthews guy. You probably wouldn't enjoy watching it very much. I think you're starting to feel the bite. And I can certainly sympathize with that. You do make some good videos. This one could have been a little better. So, just make it a point to move forward and do better. I think you mean well. So... show it.

After monkeying around with the bow, taking it way out of tune and back to where it's shooting bullets, I still don't like the way it shoots. I showed all the BS I did because they're mistakes that other people might make as well. The manual is pretty clear how you adjust it, but I think it could still be more intuitive. I think I made some bowtech shooters angry...

I’m sorry but after seeing you work on a bow (potentially damage it multiple times) and hearing you talk about archery in general, your review just can’t be validated, I’m sorry haha. Sometimes it’s as simple as, “This just doesn’t quite feel right to me.” And that’s all that needs said as to why you’re not going with that bow this year. Most of what you said as to why you didn’t like the bow can be fixed if you actually knew how to work on them.

After seeing how Bowtech guys are and how they react to another person's opinion and attack people ill never buy one for that reason alone!

Im fine with the opposition. I'm also open to being wrong. Why do you think I'm wrong? Give me some details.

There's nothing worse than an if ignorant person who thinks they're an expert. He kinda reminds me of Bernie Sanders. This guy is a complete joke and can't even read numbers on the cam THAT LITERALLY TELL YOU THE DRAW LENGTH! This is why bow shops do not like the do it at home tunability that manufacturers are releasing.

@Ian McGaughey Yeah, not sure why I had an issue with looking at it the way I did. You've got some valid points... Ill be interested in your feedback when you see the other bow reviews Im wrapping up. I really like the other 4 bows so far.

@Brandon Mcdonald I'm not sure that it gets easier than literally telling you the draw length on the cam. It's written 25, 26, 27, etc. All others need a conversion chart to know what draw length each letter is. Hell, with Hoyt you have two different size cams you have to look at.

I never claimed to be an expert. I say multiple times throughout that I'm probably the problem. That said, I've adjusted the Prime, Hoyt and Elite without an issue because it's more user friendly...

I like this video and the honest opinion of the bow even though i am thinking of buying one because of the adjustability. I have noticed the same draw cycle stiffness in the end of the draw cycle on my pse ferocity when i shoot it after using my mathews vertix a long time. And the first time i felt that it actually scared me and i thought there was something wrong with the bow, so i understand why you are saying the things about the valley. And seeing you are a mathews user too, i know exactly the feeling. And after the vertix i am realy struggling with bows that dont act as smooth and dead in the hand as mathews bows do. I am not a mathews fanboy and i own a plethora of bows, but i just cant get over the fact that my mathews feels better without any stabilisers and accessories than 90% of any other bow's in the market. When i pay over 1000 euros for a bow i expect it to be as smooth and enjoyable to use as possible.

Totally agree. The adjustability is great, I just don't like the feel.

@Brandon Mcdonald 🤷‍♂️ I don't know what to tell you. I don't own a revolt but I have both the reckoning and realmx. And I've shot the revolt numerous times to try it out and I haven't noticed any of the problems you talked about. I don't think performance mode is worth it unless you're hunting African animals or long range where you need that extra umph. So I stick with comfort

@Tyler S I don't think so. It shoots faster than any of the other bows and shoots bullet holes with a bare shaft. Even after the mess ups. General consensus is that my DL is long and it doesn't feel good at that length. Ive been shooting the other 4 bows and they don't have the issues for me that this one has.

@Brandon Mcdonald other than the fact that it seems you mostly didn't like the bow because of your mess ups it seems. Seems like you were blaming the bow for you not knowing how to set up the modules correctly.
