2018 Bowtech Realm Bow Launch

Bowtech annually ramps up one of the biggest bow launches in the industry, typically at the ATA show. This year was different, however, as they planned the launch of their 2018 bows months before they typically unleash their latest offerings. Despite the early announcement, the hype was just as big, probably bigger, as the company stirred the social media pot prior to the launch with lots of live videos and tons of interactive opportunities for Bowtech fans and customers.


Introducing the 2018 Bowtech Realm

The online launch unveiled the new Bowtech Realm and Realm-X compound bows. The bows feature a new riser engineered for precision. In fact, the whole bow was designed to be a precision workhorse for hunters at all levels of the game. The Realm is a 30 3/4″ axle to axle bow, while the Realm-X is a 33 1/4″ axle to axle bow.


Big beefy limbs are a new addition to the 2018 Bowtech Realm.

The cam system on the Realm series was designed with three features in mind. One, the cams must be identical in size, shape, and weight for the ultimate in precision. Two, the cams must be linked together for the ultimate in synchronization, and three, the cams must be adjustable for the ultimate in tuning.


A look at the riser configuration of the 2018 Realm.

The Realm bows also feature a new CP Dual Lock System, with limbs locking to the pocket, and the pocket locking to the riser. The engineering of this new bow is honestly very impressive.

  1. That looks amazing! I may be getting another bowtech toy come tax return 🙂

  2. Michael Schultz says:

    I love everything I am reading about this bow. I just wish that someone would make an affordable bow for the common person.

  3. Jim west says:

    Very nice

  4. Kirk Schalau says:

    Smoothest Bow I’ve shoot to date.

  5. Glen Haimovitz says:

    Wow! I just purchased the Realm X and it really lives up to the reviews that I have read. The draw is smooth and bow is completely dead in the hand. This is an accurate and comfortable bow to shoot as well as being well balanced. My groupings were just as tight at 10 and 20 yards at the indoor range on the comfort setting which is still firing at 337 FPS. Great bow!

  6. Which bow would be best for deer hunting?
