Bowtech Archery - October 11, 2019
Hot off the press! Bowtech has just released two exciting new target bows for 2020. These being the Reckoning 38 and the Specialist II.
The archers asked and Bowtech listened. While many people are very happy with the Reckoning, the question has been there “what if we could get a longer one for target?” Well Bowtech has delivered with the Reckoning 38!
Producing a hefty IBO speed of 325 fps with its 38” axle to axle length and 7 1/8” brace height, it is a definite performer for a target bow. The Reckoning 38 is driven by precision Deadlock cams and securely mated with Deadlock limb pockets and the Deadlock cable containment system.
This bow has a wide riser platform paired up with the customisable clutch performance grip system that work together to provide an extremely stable shooting platform. Order yours today so you are ready to take your competitors head on!
Via Diamond Archery, Bowtech has had tremendous success with the Medallist 38. For 2020 this bow has morphed into the Specialist II and through the inclusion of has some extra features, has joined the Bowtech stable. With similar geometry to the Reckoning 38 with its 38” axle to axle length and 7 1/8” brace height it has the pedigree of a true performer. The Specialists’ binary cam is an integral feature of the bow with its tremendous draw length range of 23” - 32 ½” and super hard back wall obtained through the cams limb stop. The Specialist II sees the addition of the Clutch performance grip system, designed to eliminate torque as well as the Orbital damper to reduce post shot vibration. Another feature for 2020 is the addition of more colours with the Specialist II available in black, glacier white, caught red handed, blue me away, performance blue, hyper green, smoke grey, od green and flat dark earth. If you are after a new target bow at a value packed price look no further than the Specialist II. It ticks many boxes and is sure to impress.
