Hoyt Carbon Spyder FX Description
The Hoyt Carbon Spyder FX takes small, compact and light weight and turns it into a compact hunting machine destined for big things.
The Carbon Spyder FX weighs 3.6 pounds but is big on features.
This creates a bow designed to perform up in a stand or down in a ground blind without comprimising manoeuvrability.
The XTS Pro Arc limbs are driven by the DFX Cam and a Half system, the Spyder FX is incredibly smooth to draw, well balanced and aims really well for a short axle to axle bow.
This is because of the DFX Cam and XTS Pro Arc limb combination which create a longer axle to axle at full draw, allowing for better head position and a more stable shooting platform.
Add in the ZT cable guard system which limits torque and a dual cable stop or optional limb stop system and the smoothness of this bow is exceptional.
If you are after a compact bow that packs a massive punch, look no further than the Carbon Spyder FX at 28 inch axle to axle and weighing only 3.6 pounds. Compact yet extremely lethal.

50 Plus Custom Carbon Layers. Carbon, purpose-built for pinpoint accuracy and deadly stealth. Each individual hand-laid carbon component is precision-tuned for structural optimisation. Each riser is purpose-built for enhanced stiffness and reduced vibration.
3 distinct hollow carbon tubes tougher than aluminium are strategically woven together, creating full structural stiffness optimisation throughout the entire riser platform.
Carbon has 11 times the stiffness to weight ratio of aluminium. Hoyt thermoset carbon endures more force without bending or twisting, eliminating riser vibration and increasing consistency and repeatability.
No Hoyt Carbon riser design is approved until surviving their brutal 1,500 dry fire test. Each dry fire delivers more than 104 foot pounds of kinetic energy, sourced from 80 lbs of draw weight at a 30 inch draw.
Compared to aluminium, carbon can absorb seven times more energy without permanent deformation. As an example, what happens when you park a 6,115 pound truck on a Hoyt carbon riser and an aluminium riser? The carbon riser has the ability to absorb the weight and energy and return to its original state without any permanent deformation, while the aluminium riser yields and remains bent.
Hoyt's carbon tubes are hollow, weighing 53% less than solid versions. In spite of being drastically lighter, Their hollow carbon tubes maintain 97% the stiffness and strength of a completely solid version.
Carbon provides 208 times more effective thermal insulation than aluminium. What does this mean to you? It means your carbon riser won't suck the life out of you on cold weather hunts, making you a more alert and effective hunter.
(All dry-fire testing is done by trained technicians with proper equipment. Dry firing (drawing and releasing your bow string without an arrow) is extremely dangerous and should never ever be attempted. Hoyt's 1,500 dry fire test and standard is for Hoyt risers. The truck torture test was done under controlled conditions and should not be attempted under any circumstances. If your bow is run over by a vehicle, do not shoot it. Take it directly to your dealer for full inspection. Running over your bow may void Hoyt's warranty policy.)
New DFX Cam Technology maximises effective string angle, creating a longer axle-to-axle at full draw, increasing accuracy and stability; encourages a more comfortable and accurate head position; gives the manoeuvrability benefits of a short bow in your ground blind or tree stand, while providing the advantages of a longer axle-to-axle bow; DFX Cam design creates less limb movement, resulting in a quiet, vibration-free shot.
DFX Cam optimises peep position, creating a more direct string angle and brings the peep closer to your eye, increasing peep-to-sight distance and maximising accuracy.
DFX Cam allows a more comfortable and consistent anchor and alignment; eliminates 'head tilt' at anchor, by bringing the string to your nose, promoting proper head position and form. Reduced facial contact and string pressure results in more accurate and consistent arrow flight.
DFX Cam features optional limb stop for those seeking an even stiffer back wall experience than already afforded by the new dual cable stops, the DFX cams also come with a limb stop option. If you are after that zero-play feeling at full draw, the first-ever optional limb stop brings a new definition of rock-solid rigidity to the Hoyt back wall.
Effective string position at full draw. Head position is vital to the consistency and accuracy of your shot. The new UltraFlex Limb and DFX Cam systems work together to deliver a dramatically broader string angle, an increased full-draw axle-to-axle measurement and a more optimal peep position. These innovations allow a more relaxed, strain-free posture at full draw and reduce facial contact, string pressure and eye fatigue at anchor.
The result is a 2016 30.5-inch bow that feels and performs like last year's 34-inch equivalent. Yes, you read that right, your compact tree stand or ground blind bow will feel and perform like a stable and forgiving 34-inch bow and your 34-inch bow will perform like a 37-inch target dream bow. If the numbers don't convince you, your experience at full-draw and your tightened arrow groups will.
