Bow Review Video: Bowtech Carbon One

Target acquisition and aiming with the Bowtech Carbon One felt nearly effortless to the author. A fairly straight riser, high let-off and wide riser ends, pockets and limbs contribute to the stability.

According to Bowhunting World Field Editor Darron McDougal, Bowtech’s latest carbon marvel raises the technology and performance bars. The Carbon One measures 30 inches axle-to-axle, has a brace height of 6.63 inches, and weighs 4.5 pounds (bow only). He says the DeadLock Cam System’s tuning feature is genius, and so is the FlipDisc feature, allowing the shooter to alternate between Comfort and Performance settings, which alter let-off, draw smoothness and velocity based on individual preference. Check out McDougal’s detailed YouTube video below.

Additional Notes: For this bow review, McDougal’s Bowtech Carbon One was set up using a Last Chance Archery EZ Green Bow Press and EZ Green Bow Vise, and draw weight was calculated using Last Chance Archery’s Digital Bow Scale. A Caldwell Ballistic Precision Chronograph measured the 468-grain Easton 6.5mm Acu-Carbon 340 arrow’s velocity.
