Fred Bear Escape Shadow Black Bow Right Hand 25.5-30″ 70lb Review

Fred Bear is one of the best known names in bow hunting. Even though he passed away in 1988, his skills remain legendary. Many believe that the bowhunting industry would not be what it is today without the influence of the great Mr. Bear. It is only appropriate that one of the best bows in the industry is one created by his eponymous company. The Fred Bear Escape Shadow bow should be added to every bowhunter’s arsenal.

Fred Bear Archery designs the most reliable and lethal bows. The company has been doing this for over eight decades and they do not plan to stop any time soon. This flagship bow, the Escape Shadow, is one for the ages. It is easy to imagine the shots that Fred Bear himself would take if he were able to string and shoot this phenomenal machine.

The Escape Shadow weighs in at only 4 pounds, making it one of the lightest on the market. It has a 75% let off and a 6-inch brace height. The bow looks as deadly as it shoots with its intensely fast 350 fps measurement. The aluminum riser and the cams are perfectly balanced so it feels like pure power in the hand.

The bow is powerful, despite its lightweight. It measures 32 inches from axle to axle so it fits in tight spots allowing the hunter to hide from any oncoming prey. Every measurement was poured over to ensure that that it is one deadly bow.

The peak draw is 55 to 70 pounds with a draw range between 25.5 and 30 inches. The quad limbs are preloaded, the barrel nut can be fully adjusted, the riser inserts maintain a silent draw and release, and the cam system ensures the fastest speeds possible. Every millimeter of this bow was created with successful hunting in mind. Once you get your hands on it, you will never want another bow again.

Fred Bear taught the modern bowhunter how to be successful and the company continues to set the bar for quality and design. This bow is not necessarily for the rookie hunter, but with lessons from a veteran (or watching some Fred Bear videos) a rookie would certainly learn to quickly love this bow. It handles with the right amount of forgiveness, making it ideal for any shooter. It is easy to maneuver and the balance makes it relatively manageable, too.

The bow is made out of what Fred Bear Archery calls 7075 aluminum technology that is advanced beyond other bow technology. The limbs get to share the load in a balanced way that other compound bows do not. Lateral torque is reduced with the special hinge guard that Bear adds to the bow. The top and bottom string suppressors can be adjusted and the H15 Hybrid cams will deliver the speeds advertised, but also allow for a comfortable letdown and and easy draw. The grip design is integrated into the bow adding to its good looks and deadly capabilities.

Everyone who shoots this bow comments on the quality, durability, and strength of the product. The arrows are released quickly, quietly, and accurately. Whether they have owned Bear Archery products previously or they are new to the brand, archers are amazed at the way this bow stands out from the crowd. It may not be the least expensive bow in the store, but the performance it delivers makes it seem like it should be priced even higher.

Shopping for a new compound bow has never been easier. The Fred Bear Escape Shadow is the only bow that any hunter will ever need. This American born manufacturing company stands behind everything it creates because it refuses to tarnish the eponymous name of its creator. It is easy to fall in love with any product that Fred Bear Archery creates, but the Escape Shadow truly shows what the company can do when it wants to really set itself apart from the rest of the industry. Other manufacturers will have to work hard to produce anything that meets or exceeds the standards set by this outstanding compound bow.

Diamond Infinite Edge Bow Review

Indeed, bow shooting is both fun and sporty, especially when you engage the right archery tool. Great shooting bows help to boost accuracy and ease in holding the weapon in a proper shooting position. In addition, less strength is required to hit at your target precisely. And, shooting your bow in a straighter path comes easier when you have the right archery weapon such as the Diamond Archery 2013 Diamond Infinite Edge Bow Pkg Black Ops Lh 2013-30″ 5-70#.

What You Need to Know about The Diamond Infinite Edge Bow

First, just like other Diamond Bows, this one is also manufactured and designed by Bowtech, one of the renowned manufacturers of compound bow world-wide. And, if your target is to get a compound bow for a youth, kid, or female who is in the process of becoming an archer, you have just found the right bow.

The bow has been designed with sufficient features for small-frame shooters, so that they can keep shooting up to adult stage. It is a customizable archery weapon and does not require a bow press to accomplish your desired customization.

This archery weapon comes with versatile adjustable settings, making it highly customizable for the targeted users. When you buy it for a kid such as a five-year old kid, you don’t have to bother about buying another bow in the next 10 or 15 years since the bow has been designed to promote usage up to later years. Let me quickly mention that even an adult male can also use this bow once it is set to suit his shooting level and capacity.

Indeed, when it comes to bows designed with kids and youths in mind, there are only few rivals to this bow.

The Attractive Features at a Glance

Some of the features and characteristics of this bow that you will find irresistible include the following;

Adjustable Draw Length and Weight: You can adjust the draw length from 13” all the way to 30”, while the draw weight’s adjustable range is from 5 to 70 Ibs. As a result, this archery weapon is well suited for target archers and hunters of all sizes. And, as the kid or youth masters a particular draw length or weight, you are able to make adjustment for a more suitable draw length and weight. So, as your kid grows in age, the necessary adjustments are carried out on the bow to suit his or her new status.

Top-notch Cam System: The cam design is the dual eccentric system type, completely innovative. These elliptical-designed cams’ movement has been accurately synchronized for excellent straight arrow travel.

They are as powerful as the cam you will find with typical adult shooting bows. Besides, they are completely smooth, making the bow’s draw cycle very friendly for starters. And, the cable slide has no sign of roughness, plus it is durable. This is not just my opinion, I’ve heard the same from other archers in our community as well.

Ideal Shooting Speed for Kids and Beginners:
At 310 FPS, the shooting speed of this innovative Diamond bow is ideal for kids and amateur archers. Your setting can affect the actual shooting speed. Well, shooting speed is not a particularly important feature for a bow targeted at kids and beginners. You should concentrate more on proper form as well as accuracy, which is the major target of this innovative bow.

Less Noise Levels and Vibration: This archery weapon is light weight in design, to make it less pressurizing to the young shooters’ muscles. And, this will help them shoot for extended period without getting easily tired. Consequently, accessories that help in noise and vibration reduction have been integrated. However, the noise and vibration level has only been minimally dampened, since the aim for young shooters is not to hunt down games.

Smooth and Slower Draw Cycle to Suit Young Shooters: The non-aggressive cam system promotes slower and smoother draw weight, regardless of the settings. This is something desirable, considering the fact that the bow is targeted at young and beginner archers.

Different Levels of Kinetic Energy: Depending on the setting, the bow gives off a low or very powerful kinetic energy. Since the kids and beginners’ target is not to hunt down a game, a setting that will promote a lower kinetic energy is just fine.

What’s in the Package?
The package contains the following;
• A Diamond Infinite Edge bow
• Octane DeadLock Quiver
• 3-Pin Tru Apex bow Sight
• Arrow Rest – The Hostage XL type
• BCY String Look
Tube Peep Sight
• User Manual
• Warranty Card

Pros & Cons

Obviously, this bow is loaded with tons of age-appropriate and general features. The highlight of these features include;
• Highly customizable and adjustable bow
• Perfect bow for kids and beginners
• Continuous use up to early adult age
• Ultra-light weight bow
• Perfect for both target practice and hunting
• Tons of accessories

Cons: Actually, there’s no concrete complaint about this bow other than the grip that has a sort of square shape.

Final Thought

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the bow for kids, beginners, youths, or female archers. Indeed, it will remain a top-performing archery weapon even as your kid grows older. It is great value for money.

That’s not all, this type of bow also comes with innovative draw-stops (pulley system) that can be adjusted to suit your optimum draw length.

Zero Let-Off: Genesis technology has effectively and completely eliminated needless let-off with this archery tool. As a result, this state-of-the-art bow is a completely versatile bow for just anyone.

The elimination of specific draw length also makes it a perfect bow for kids – they will never outgrow it! On the side of beginners, this special feature increases ease of use.

I highly recommend this compound bow. The extra dollars on top are commensurate with the extra features that come with the bow.
