Hoyt 2021 Altus Compound Bow

Hoyt Archery introduced the Altus compound bow as part of its target lineup for 2021.

In this video, Lancaster Archery Supply’s P.J. Reilly runs through the specs and features of this 38-inch-long bow that’s going to be a great choice for all forms of target archery.

The Altus is available with two different cams – the DCX and SVX. The DCX version will be a little smoother to draw and hold, as compared to the SVX, which is built more for speed.

The most noticeable feature of the Altus to Hoyt target fans is the fact that it does not have a shoot-through riser. Dual bridges in the riser produce the bow’s rigidity, versus the shoot-through construction.

Hoyt is marketing the Altus as “another price option” in its target lineup because it’s not the most expensive, nor is it the least expensive bow.

The Enkore is a 33-inch long bow with a 6-inch brace height that’s got an IBO speed rating of 340 feet per second, ad a draw length range of 23-30 inches. This is going to be the speed bow for bowhunters who like flat arrow trajectories.

The Remedy measures 34 inches long, has about a 6.5-inch brace height and an IBO speed rating of 331 feet per second and a draw length range of 24-31 inches.. This bow has a smooth draw cycle that will be comfortable to hold at full draw while standing in the tree stand.

Both bows feature Elite’s SET technology, which allows for simple tuning without the need for bow press. They’ve also got Elite’s tri-track cam system, which houses cables in separate tracks on either side of the bowstring for cam stability.

Mathews VXR Series 2020 Compound Bows Review

Mathews Archery launched the VXR Series bows as its flagship hunting line for 2020.

Watch here as Lancaster Archery Supply’s P.J. Reilly runs through the features and technologies built into these bows, which are the VXR 28 and the VXR 31.

Mathews took a lot of the technology built into its 2019 Vertix line, such as the Switchweight Mods, and put it into the VXR line. The Switchweight Mods allow an archer to change the weight range of a particular bow simply by changing mods. Previously, changing the weight range required changing limbs.

Arguably, the most noted feature of this bow is the Roto cam, which includes a rotating module for changing draw length. In the past, Prime bows employed draw-length-specific cams, which required changing the cams in order to change draw lengths.

To work in conjunction with this technology, Elite built a beefier, more stable cam and cable system to help reduce cam lean and increase consistency.

With the advancements built into this bow, it seems likely the Rezult will help some of Elite’s top archers climb up on podiums in 2020.
