If you’ve been looking to try bowfishing, but not exactly sure where to start, or what you’ll need, Muzzy has released a new starter kit called the Addict Bowfishing Kit.
Muzzy, the leader in bowfishing equipment, has announced the introduction of its new Addict Bowfishing Kit, which contains everything needed to begin the sport of bowfishing—everything except the fish.
The Muzzy Addict Bowfishing Kit features a new 58-inch-long recurve bow with a 40-pound draw weight at 28 inches. The bow is a three-piece takedown design that is drilled and tapped for normal accessories and comes ready to shoot. The bow’s riser is magnesium for strength and vibration reduction, and its limbs are constructed of laminated maple and fiberglass for great performance.
The Addict Bowfishing Kit also includes Muzzy’s new XD Pro Reel. Pre-spooled with 150-pound Spectra line, this new stainless steel reel features a unique finger-activated lever switch that clearly indicates an open bail or locked bail. The switch eliminates the guesswork of the old-style press switch, simply flip the switch to the open position to shoot, and flip it back after the shot to retrieve the line. The XD Pro Reel attaches to the riser by way of an integrated stainless steel mounting that reduces weight and allows for easy, single-bolt mounting.
The Addict Bowfishing Kit also includes the new Muzzy Fish Bone arrow, a 32-inch custom-infused coated fiberglass arrow with special wear-resistant graphics, and the Muzzy quick-release carp point comes with the kit.
A Muzzy Fish Hook rest and a pair of neon green finger guards complete the package, providing both entry-level and seasoned shooters with an affordable and compact setup. Retailing at $249.99, the new Muzzy Addict Bowfishing Kit has everything you need to start bowfishing and will be available at retailers nationwide this spring. The Muzzy Addict Bow will also be available as a separate item for a suggested retail price of $169.99.
