BowTech Prodigy Chris Kyle The Legend Limited Edition Description
It's time to shift your thinking. The aptly named Prodigy marks the beginning of a new era with the introduction of the revolutionary PowerShift Technology, a brand new technology that delivers versatility unmatched by any compound bow on the market. PowerShift is a game changer among bow manufacturers and BowTech is proud to introduce it on the Prodigy. The Prodigy removes the need to compromise when choosing a bow. This brand new innovation in bow design allows shooters to have every bow they want with zero compromise. BowTech wanted a bow that would fit any shooter, every season. When it's time to choose just one bow, get all the bows you want as BowTech has done that with PowerShift Technology. This technology is something you will see grow and expand over the years. BowTech will unveil many new technologies in the coming years that will fit nicely under the PowerShift Technology umbrella.
With a simple quick shift of the PowerDisc, any archer can customise their shooting experience from the Performance setting (maximum speed and knock-down power) to its Classic setting (hard-hitting but smooth) or its Comfort setting (effortless draw), so you are really getting three bows in one.
This is the first time BowTech has come out with a series of bow designs that they are actually asking the shooter to engage with and do some of the set up themselves. The PowerShift Technology is amazing and the PowerDisc3, which is under the PowerShift umbrella, allows shooters the ability to choose and switch between three different draw-force curve options.
The gold PowerDisc3 is numbered with three holes that represent a different draw-force curve.
The 1st setting dubbed Performance was engineered for those who prefer raw power and speed. The draw cycle is a bit rigid and firm, but nothing that will pop a hernia when you draw it back. In fact, it is found to be surprisingly smooth for the 343 feet-per-second speed it produces.
The 2nd setting is called Classic, the setting most Midwestern whitetail goers will prefer. The setting provides plenty of speed and power, but the draw cycle is noticeably smoother and the transition into let off isn't as abrupt. Perfect for tree stand and ground blind hunting.
Those who hunt in frigid temperatures or simply prefer an ultra-smooth draw will want to slide the PowerDisc3 to the Comfort or 3rd setting. This setting promises a draw cycle so smooth you simply have to experience it to believe it.
In fact, BowTech is calling the Prodigy, when set at the Comfort setting, their smoothest-drawing bow to date. Best of all, switching from setting to setting doesn't require a bow press and it takes only a few seconds to adjust the PowerDisc3 on both the top and bottom cam. All you need is an Allen wrench.
Archers can have speed, power, a smooth draw or an effortless draw all in one truly revolutionary compound bow which produces zero string oscillation or hand vibration.
OverDrive Binary Cam is truly the most advanced cam system ever produced. For unmatched accuracy, stability, symmetry, consistency and simple impeccable tuning with perfect cam synchronisation. By attaching a 100% tunable split buss cable harness to the ends of a cam synchronising axle, cam stability is maximised while maintaining perfect synchronisation for unmatched accuracy and a very comfortable draw cycle. Rotating modules come standard with the OverDrive Binary Cam system.
Rotating Modules. Time is of the essence. You will never have to wait for replacement cams or modules ever again. Unlike most bows on the market today, BowTech bows do not require a new cam or module to set your draw length. Simply remove the module screws, rotate the module and re-tighten. At least six inches of draw length adjustment and an infinite edge draw stop feature is available on most BowTech bows, allowing for custom draw length tuning for yourself or others. Quick draw length adjustments provide the ability to make the proper length adjustment to match your preferred shooting style.
Premium alloy composition allows for a strong, lightweight design while diminishing noise and vibration.
FLX-Guard eliminates riser torque for extreme accuracy. After relentless hours from their engineers and months of testing, BowTech put the FLX Guard in action. The result was flawless execution in terminating riser torque. It is clear why this technology is the most effective cable containment system on the market.
The FLX-Guard cable containment system addresses the tuning effects of extreme cable tension and inflexible cable guards found on today's bows. As the bow is drawn, the FLX-Guard responds by flexing inward, absorbing the cable guard torque that would have otherwise been transferred to the riser. The result is substantial reduction in lateral nock travel, yielding a real advancement in tunability, forgiveness and accuracy.
Centre Pivot Extreme (CPX). If you know one thing about BowTech, it is that they completely dominate the competition with their innovations. Their newest creation, Centre Pivot Extreme or CPX, is a prime example of this. CPX redefines accuracy with its sleek new deflexed riser design and with the help of ultra low friction components the speed of 343 fps is easily obtained. Combined with Overdrive Binary Cams, FLX-Guard and HardCore Limbs, CPX gives you one scary unmatched accurate, deadly quiet, blazing fast piece of equipment.
Carbon Core Limbs. Extreme impact-resistant skin, carbon centre for vibration dampening, intense efficiency.
Revolver Riser Dampeners, vibration dampening, impact resistant and most efficient.
Octane Factory Strings. Hand made. Machine grade. It's a well known fact that strings and cables are critical in overall bow performance, so Octane, by BowTech, produce the most respected and reliable strings available. Octane strings are hand built to ensure that BowTech's high demand for quality is upheld. Over the last ten years, Octane has designed and built custom machines that are proprietary to the Octane string building process. The combination of hand quality and custom precision machinery allows for only one result, perfection. You might just be surprised just how much goes into building a single set of strings and cables.
Chris Kyle "The Legend" was designed with the best in BowTech technology in order to provide the highest performance in the field. The Legend bow is built on the same platform as the company's 2015 flagship bow, Prodigy and features the revolutionary PowerShift technology.

Prodigy. Any Shooter. Every Season.
BowTech, manufacturer of the world's finest compound bows and archery equipment, has developed the ultimate tribute to legendary US Navy SEAL sniper, Chris Kyle, with the launch of the Prodigy limited edition "The Legend" bow. It is well known that Kyle was a big time hunter and had an affinity for BowTech archery equipment, so the company decided to outfit its new "The Legend" bow to reflect the spirit of Kyle's success as a SEAL.
Kyle was the most deadliest sniper in US military history, with over 160 kills officially confirmed by the US Department of Defence, in his four tours of duty in Iraq, where he participated in every major campaign of the war. He earned two Silver Stars and five Bronze Stars with Valour. While serving in Iraq, Kyle became known by the moniker "The Legend". In 2009 he left the US Navy after 10 years service and in 2012 he wrote his bestselling autobiography American Sniper. After his untimely death in February 2013, his story was turned into the 2014 blockbuster film of the same name.
BowTech was heavily involved with the film from the outset, providing apparel for actor Bradley Cooper (who played Chris Kyle in the movie and received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor) during production, attending film premieres and now partnering with the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation (CKFF) which was launched on Veteran's Day 2014 and was the vision of Chris Kyle prior to his death.
BowTech will donate a portion of proceeds from the sale of every "The Legend" bow to the CKFF which provides support and meaningful, interactive experiences to service members, first responders and their families, aims to enrich their family relationships and helps families reconnect with their loved ones after deployments. The experiences provided by the foundation are designed to give those it is assisting, the opportunity to reconnect and remember what they love about each other, thus empowering families to thrive.
Chris Kyle's widow, Taya Kyle is Executive Director of CKFF and continues to work tirelessly to extend Chris' legacy through the foundation. "BowTech has been incredibly supportive of the American Sniper film and eager to develop programmes to support the CKFF. We are excited about the launch of The Legend bow and hope supporters of BowTech and CKFF will consider this bow when preparing for the 2015 hunting season", she said.
