Best Target Bows: 2017 Target Bow Shootout

After seeing a handful of new flagship target bows get released for 2017, we decided to reach out to some manufacturers to see if they would be willing to send me some long term test bows.

Because we wanted to spend as much time with each bow as possible, we decided to get a maximum of four bows in for testing. As luck would have it, the four manufacturers we reached out to all agreed to send in a bow.

In the order they arrived at our door, we received the Bowtech Fanatic 3.0, Prime STX 39 V2, Hoyt Prevail 40 with X3 cams and Mathews TRX 7.

Target Archery Scope Set Up

Historically I have not loved using pins on my target scopes. I know they work great for a lot of people, but it's just not been a success for me.

Fortunately after watching a video from John Dudley, I found a way to use dots on the lenses of my Specialty Archery Versa scopes without running into trouble the colors blending into the paper or 3D targets.

We can't even start to discuss tuning until we know that the archer and the bow are consistent. There's no sense of even trying to tune your bow unless you are performing perfectly.

Once you feel that you're performing perfectly then what we do is we take note of how the arrows are flying. If they are tuned, like if they are center shot, if knocking point is in the right position the arrow will come out of the bow perfectly straight, perfectly straight. If it doesn't come out of the bow perfectly straight the bow is not tuned. Or the archer and the bow aren't tuned together.

So one of the ways that you determine whether the bow is tuned or not is to shoot up close to your target. When you shoot the arrow up close to your target, if the arrow doesn't come out perfectly straight it will enter the target at an angle. The angle that it enters the target at will determine what you have to do in order to tune the bow.

For instance, if you take a shot and the arrow comes out of the bow, and when it hits the target it turns this way, that tells me that the arrow is too weak for the bow. That tells me that as the arrow comes out it's bending too much and moving to the right of the target.

If the arrow comes out of the bow and it bends this way and enters the target at this angle, that tells me that the arrow is too stiff for the bow. So therefore, you have to find the proper spined arrow for the bow. Going back to your chart, your arrow chart, you find out where this arrow was on the chart, and you move back towards a lighter or forward towards a heavier spined arrow. Until you find the proper arrow that comes out at the proper spine and enters into the target perfectly straight. If it enters perfectly straight your arrow and your bow are tuned. That's tuning the arrow.

Now, how can we do it in other ways besides just changing your arrows? You can do it by changing the weight of the points. The heavier the point the more the arrow will bend. Therefore, if you have an arrow that's too stiff, by putting a heavier weight in the front it will cause the arrow to straighten out. Another way you can do it is by putting heavier veins on the back, heavier fletching on the back, that stiffens the arrow. So if an arrow is too weak you can stiffen the arrow by putting weight on the back.

$300 Target Bow: Gen-X Archery X-Won Review

The flagship of the Gen-X lineup is the X-Won – a target bow that retails for $299. Since I was testing target bows that were priced from $1,400 to $1,800, I found the idea of a $300 target bow really intriguing, so I reached out to Gen-X and they were able to send over an X-Won for testing.

The draw cycle on this bow is pretty nice. It's a smooth daw right into the back wall. The wall is on the spongy side, though. I find this bow likes it best when I pull aggressively through the shot. It will start to creep on me if I get lazy, but I don't think that's a bad thing. Teaching new shooters to stay aggressive should help promote good form, even if it can be a little tiring.

Once I get my rest set up properly, I was slapping arrows at 20 and 30 yards with little issue. I have had some trouble shooting bullet holes through paper, but the fletched arrows seem to be grouping well so I can't complain.

Once I move out to 40 yards, I did start to notice some fliers, but I'd put the blame on the shooter for those.

I shot some FITA-style scoring rounds with this bow at 50 meters and 70 meters and the bow didn’t let me down. My scores were definitely a couple notches below what I was getting with the flagship target bows, but this thing is a shooter. If you give a pro like Jesse Broadwater this bow and give me the Mathews TRX 7, I have no doubt in my mind he would beat me…by a lot.

And that's why I'd have no trouble recommending this bow to somebody interested in getting started in target archery. The X-Won is an affordable entry point into the sport and its versatility allows a young archer to grow with the bow. And if they end up getting serious about archery down the like, the high priced flagship bows will always be there.
