Fin-Finder is a new brand which has quickly established itself as one of the key players in the bowfishing industry. With a product line to outfit just about any bowfishing adventure, whether you’re a novice or a hard core tournament fisher, Fin-Finder has something for you. After several years of watching the Poseidon bowfishing bow grow in popularity among the bowfishing community, I finally had the opportunity to lay hands on one for myself. The Fin-Finder Poseidon bow is at the forefront of a unique product line with looks to kill and performance to get the job done on big fish, no matter where the adventure takes you.
Out of the Package
The packaging for the Poseidon bow is sharp, clean, and simple. Thanks to the open package design you have the opportunity to lay hands on the bow to get an honest feel for how this bow fits in the hand before you buy it. The bow is pretty much ready to rock right out of the package. Just add your favorite reel and arrow rest, and you’re ready to hit the water.
Fin-Finder Poseidon Bow Specs
The Poseidon is a 31” axle-to-axle bow which is not too short and not too long. In my opinion it’s a great size which provides plenty of maneuverability as you scramble in the boat with tight shots. The bow features a 25-40 pound draw weight range, allowing you to shoot on the light side if you like, or to go heavy when you need the extra punch for big fish and deeper shots. The Poseidon fits virtually everyone with a draw length range that spans from 25 to 31 inches.
The bow honestly feels really good in the hand right out of the package. It’s light. And while I like a light bow, I’m often leery of one that’s too light. If it feels like a toy, it often breaks like a toy. So I was surprised when I first drew the bow back. Its no lightweight! This is a man’s bow through and through. Sure, the bow can be cranked down to fit kids and ladies, but the Fin-Finder Poseidon has the draw weight and punch that the biggest of men will appreciate as well.
Key Features of the Poseidon Bow
The Poseidon features Parallel Limb Technology and an advanced split-limb system which brings modern bow design to the bowfishing world. The result is increased shoot-ability and performance. The limbs are solid, dependable, and can easily handle the rigors of a long night on the water.
With all the punishment and abuse that comes with a long night on the water, coupled with the fact that finger-shooting is the standard when it comes to shooting fish, bowfishing bows are often subject to derailing. Fin-Finder addressed this issue from the start with their Poseidon Cam.
What Reel For the Poseidon?
The Poseidon easily accommodates a variety of bowfishing reels. The AMS Retriever Reel matches the bow nicely and is a great fool-proof option that mounts right on the bow’s riser.
The spinner style reels such as Muzzy, Archenemy, Shakespere Ti20, and others will fit nicely on this bow as well. Mounted in the bow’s stabilizer hole, spinner reels offer some of the smoothest shooting and fastest arrow retrieval on the market.
Unloaded, the Poseidon weighs in at just 3.2 pounds. When I added an AMS bottle reel and Fin-Finder arrow rest, the bow still only hit the scale at 4.6 pounds. It weighed slightly more with the Muzzy reel. It’s a nice and light package, regardless of what reel option you choose. At this time, the Poseidon is only available in a right hand option.
Fin-Finder is also offering the Poseidon in a Pro package that comes with an arrow rest, arrow, finger savers, and AMS Retriever Reel. The package deals are a great option for folks who are just getting started with bowfishing and aren’t sure exactly which products to buy. These bowfishing packages include everything you need to get started at a very affordable price.
Speaking of which I found the Poseidon on-line at eders.com priced at just $240.44. That’s a price that’ll be hard to beat no matter what bow you’re after.
Fin-Finder’s goal is to make bowfishing easier, as well as more fun and accessible for everyone. In my opinion they’ve done just that with the introduction of their Poseidon Bowfishing Compound Bow. The product line offered by the Fin-Finder family will keep you outfitted well, regardless of whether you’re fishing from the bank or boat.
