Diamond Introduces Center Pivot Technology For 2009

by Staff 5. December 2008 02:46 StaffDiamond IceMan bowThe IceMan cometh. And it comes deadly quiet, with shock-free Center Pivot riser technology, previously available only in the BowTech line.
Featuring second generation Center Pivot Technology, the new Diamond IceMan has more strength, virtually no horizontal torque or vibration and, with the deflexed design, consistent accuracy shot after shot.
"Bringing the Center Pivot Technology into the Diamond brand is a big step for us," national sales manager Jerid Strasheim admits, "With the draw cycle of a single cam and the deadly quiet that comes with the Center Pivot design, the IceMan is one of the smoothest shooters on the market today."
The IceMan features an all new Single Rotating Mod allowing for a full 7 inches of adjustability in 1/2-inch increments (24" to 30"). Couple that with a 31 ½" axle to axle, a forgiving 7 1/8" brace height and peak draw weights available in 40, 50, 60 and 70 pounds, the versatile IceMan has IBO speeds of 310 to 318 fps. A carbon rod string suppressor, positioned directly in line with the stabilizer bushing, couples with a stabilizer to efficiently transfer energy away from the bow resulting in a quiet, balanced shot.
The IceMan is available in a variety of camouflage patterns including Realtree's Hardwoods HD® (standard), Hardwoods Green HD®, AP HD®, Advantage Max-4 HD®, Camowest® Vanish Hybrid, Next® FLX Digital and Mossy Oak Brush®, all featuring the InVelvet™ finish. The IceMan is also available in a FireStorm Candy Blue target configuration with blue/black string and cables, black cams and mods and a carbon fiber dipped 2-piece grip. The optional Octane accessory package includes a 5-pin fiber optic sight, Hostage Pro capture arrow rest, Octane camo 5-arrow 1-piece quiver, braided wrist sling, metal peep sight and Octane 7" camo stabilizer.

BowTech Introduces 2nd Generation Center Pivot Technology on Three Models

by Staff 1. December 2008 03:12 StaffEugene, 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            
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.
All bows are available in a variety of camo patterns featuring Realtree Hardwoods Green HD® (standard), Hardwoods Grey HD®, AP HD®, APG HD®, Advantage Max-4 HD®, Mossy Oak Brush®, Camowest® Vanish Hybrid, Next® FLX™ Digital and Gore Optifade™ Concealment Technology and finished with InVelvet.
