With its proprietary and exclusive Parallel Cam Technology, this new line of premiums bows virtually eliminates CAM LEAN, making the bows more forgiving and more accurate at greater distances.

“The new Prime Bows will raise the bar in compound bow performance.” Stated President Matt Grace. “We are thrilled with the ingenuity our engineers and designers have shown in developing a product that effectively addresses one of the nagging problems in current bow designs.”

G5 Release Their New Line of Prime Bows to Their Impressive Line of Archery Products

The Parallel Cam Technology looks to make CAM LEAN a problem of the past as the new design balances the load equally on each side of the cable resulting in practically no CAM LEAN, reduced horizontal nock travel, and reduced limb fatigue. In addition to the Parallel Cam Design, the new Prime series offers a long list of unique features that make the bow truly one of a kind:

• Forged 7000 Series T6 Aluminum Riser is twice as strong as traditional 6061 T6 aluminum risers.
o -This durable design helps to increase riser stiffness and reduce shooter’s hand shock.
• C-1 Laminated Limbs
o These limbs utilize a cross weft design to significantly reduce torsional stresses in the limb resulting in improved consistency and accuracy
• GoreTM Fiber String & Cables
o o This proprietary string material is a blend of Gore TM performance fibers and BCYTM 452X.
o The Marriage of these tow industry leading technologies results in a superior string with less vibration, a reduction in noise, and increased durability.
• TI-Glide Titanium Flexing Cable System
o The Prime’s Flexible Titanium cable guard system reduces cam lean by 25% by reducing side load on the cables during draw. In conjunction with the Parallel Cam Design, cam lean is virtually eliminated.
• Shield Grip
o First of its kind in the industry, made of G10 material that repels water, odors or any other unwanted element. It stays dry and comfortable in the hand no matter the conditions.
• Available in Optifade TM Forest, Optifade TM Open Country , Realtree AP HD TM or Black
o Superior patterns for superior concealment

The revolutionary Prime bow is available in two models the Shift and the Centroid.

Finally, Prime seeks to deliver the highest level of Quality Assurance in the Bow Industry. Every Prime bow is fully assembled and tune. G5 then takes the extra effort of cycling every bow 100 times on an automated cycling machine, and then super tunes the bow again. This process ensures that strings are properly stretched, and limbs and limb pockets have properly settled – eliminating the need to retune your bow after your first 100 shots.
