New sights, broadheads and accessories will be the hitting the shelves of your local archery shop. Here is a scoop on some of the new gear from the 2017 ATA Trade Show.
Quality bowhunting gear can improve your success and make your time in the field more enjoyable. The 2017 ATA Trade show has all the new bowhunting gear that will make your 2017 season the best yet.
A broadhead can cause an arrow to plane and fly differently from a field point. Tuning a broadhead for field point accuracy can be a hair-pulling venture, especially for a new archer. The Spinning Insert from Ethics Archery was designed to make any broadhead shoot just like a field point. When an arrow is shot it will spin in flight, the spinning stabilizes the arrow. The blades of a fixed blade broadhead disrupt this spinning motion. The spinning insert separates the spin of the arrow from the spin of the broadhead allowing for true arrow flight.
The summer months, with few open hunting seasons, can be a sad time for a bowhunter. Luckily, there is bowfishing to help with those summertime blues. The Edge Sonar was specifically designed for bowfising with it’s get it wet and drop it in the boat durability. The Sonar has a powder coated finish and thicker cams for added durability. The Sonar can fit just about any archer and is offered in ready to shoot package. The Sonar package comes with AMS bowfishing accessories and information on how to bowfish. Diamond has online resources on bowfishing, local regulations, and how to setup your bow.
The GRZ-2 is a brand-new entry level crossbow offering from Excalibur. Excalibur’s Marketing Specialist, Michael Martin, said, “It is lighter, it’s nicer to shoot it’s a little nicer to cock. It’s 300 fps so you still have lots of power to do whatever you need. It’s at a price and a value and a weight that will be good for anyone.”
Bowtech released a new target and hunting crossover bow called the BT MAG. It is a 36” axle to axle bow that is equally at home in the woods as it is on the tournament trail. The BT MAG is a blistering fast 340 feet per second and has a draw length range of 26” to 30”. If you aren’t sure if you want to hunt or shoot targets, then the BT Mag would be a great high end bow option for both of those applications.
