Eugene, OR (December 1, 2008)-In the archery business you can't think just about raising the bar, you must reshape it entirely. BowTech's latest Center Pivot Riser Technology, featured on three new bows, the Admiral, Captain and Sentinel, in addition to a cache of other features, elevates these bows above the rest of the troops.
The technology begins with a single-piece riser of forged aluminum and which is then machined into shape. Eye-catching cutouts and beveled edges remove excess material while maintaining strength and integrity. The riser then meets the split limbs near the center point in a zero-tolerance assembly process, guaranteeing no-slop precision. You get more strength, virtually no horizontal torque or vibration and, with the deflexed design, consistent accuracy shot after shot. Each bow features BowTech's proprietary CenterTrac Binary Cam System, Single Rotating Mod and original Carbon Rod String Stop.
"For the archer who wants a bow with the latest technology and optimal performance, these newly redesigned Center Pivot bows deliver," says Jerid Strasheim, national sales manager.
With a ton of technology efficiently packed into a tight 31" frame and IBO speeds of 312 to 320 fps, the Admiral is ideal for thight tree-stand or popular ground blind shooting situations. It has a forgiving brace height of 7 1/2" and fits a variety of shooters with peak draw weights offered at 40, 50, 60 and 70 ounds and a draw lenght range of 24 to 30".
The Captain perfectly combines performance, silence and speed. The 34" axle to axle paired with a 7" brace height sends arrows flying at IBO speeds of 315 to 323 fps. The bow is offered with peak draw weights of 50, 60 and 70 pounds and a draw length range of 24 to 30". With every Captain purchased, a portion of the proceeds will go to the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors. T.A.P.S. is a Veteran Service Organization that aids and comforts hundreds of American families who have tragically lost their loved ones in the armed forces. For more information, visit www.TAPS.org
The forgiveness of a longer axle-to-axle length (36 ¾") makes the Sentinel an ideal hunting and/or 3D target bow, which is suitable for release and finger shooters alike. Available in peak draw weights of 40, 50, 60 and 70 pounds, with a 7" brace height and adjustable draw length range of 24 ½ to 30 ½", the Sentinel is boasting IBO speeds of 317 to 325 fps.
