2018 Bowtech Realm and RealmX

The Realm and the RealmX are the flagship hunting bows from Bowtech for 2018. In this video, LAS TechXpert P.J. Reilly gives an overview of these two compound bows.

Both feature new, wide limbs that can be locked into place via Bowtech’s CP Dual Lock pocket system. The CP system allows an archer to lock the limbs to the pocket, and to lock the entire pocket to the riser for secure placement.

The two bows also include the flip disc on their cams, which allows an archer to choose between an aggressive cam performance with a shallow valley for maximum speed, or a deeper valley that holds easy at the back end for maximum comfort in the draw cycle.

A new feature of the Realm bows is the Orbit Vibration Dampener. It’s threaded to allow an archer to stack several to offset the weight of a quiver and/or sight.

The Realm is 30.25 inches axle to axle, with a brace height of 7 1/8 inches and an IBO speed rating of 340 feet per second (fps).

The RealmX measures 33.25 inches long, with a 6.5-inch brace height of and an IBO speed rating of 345 fps.
