Big Power
The Assassin has a very stout 333 fps IBO Speed. That's fast enough to shoot one pin out to 25-30 yards and more than enough knock-down power to confidently hunt any big game species. Even at lower draw weights and shorter draw lengths, the Assassin is still lethal.
For 2013, Bowtech renews their contract with a real killer. The Bowtech Assassin has been one of the most-popular bows of 2011 and 2012, and it's back and still loaded with killer technologies and a heart-stopping 333 fps IBO Speed for 2013. Of course, that's no surprise. We've all come to expect Bowtech bows to be awesome. In fact, we originally thought the general stature and feel of this bow seemed almost reminiscent of the beloved Tribute from a few years back. But as we started working with the Assassin, we realized that it's a far more deadly character.

Faster, quieter, lighter, and smoother than 95% of today's best performers, the Assassin could easily take its place among the market's most elite compound bows. But the Assassin isn't about flagship bravado. It doesn't have to be. Because in its price range, there is no other bow that can possibly match it. This bow would be great deal at $699 as a bare bow, but since it comes fully rigged with a whole case full of awesome parts and accessories for $699, it's simply unbeatable.

With so many bow manufacturers focused on chasing the high-end buyer, it's great to see a top manufacturer offer a serious high-performance bow to those of us who just can't throw caution to the wind. The Assassin is one of the smartest buys in the industry - it's a TON of bow for the money. Bowtech, we salute you. The Assassin still hits the mark for the fourth season. Plus, it's also available in optional Black Ops finish for no extra charge.

If you're starting from scratch, this bow package is a true turnkey solution. We've loaded this great bow up with everything: rest, sight, arrows, stabilizer, bow case, wrist sling, mechanical release and MUCH MORE. But don't expect the box to be full of loose parts and assembly instructions, because this awesome rig comes ready for action the moment you unpack it from the case. Our pro-shop does all the work in-advance. So this awesome bowhunting rig arrives 100% ready to shoot. Scroll down for all the details.
Smart Mods
This bow features clever sliding cam modules. So changing draw lengths requires no special tools or extra parts. However, you can also get an optional S (smooth) mods for this bow with a less aggressive grind for a smoother stroke - but with a little less speed.
Low Noise
This bow features a 2 piece string silencer set AND an integrated string stop. String noise is exceptionally low on this bow. In fact, the Assassin is one of the quieter bows we sell - in spite of the brutal speeds. We promise you're going to love this bow.
Includes the bow, the arrows, accessories, and it arrives ready-to-shoot.

R.T.H. BOW PACKAGE DETAILS: SERVICES PERFORMED
bow assembly SETUP
Every bow package is hand-assembled at our Pro-Shop by a qualified archery professional. No details are overlooked. The peep sight is served in place, the nock or loop set is installed, the draw length and weight is set to your specifications, all hardware is carefully installed and properly adjusted, and your arrows are custom built to suit your particular bow and settings. The string gets waxed, axles lubricated, and the bow is given a thorough inspection - top to bottom - for any flaws in manufacturing. If the bow and related gear aren't up to standards, they don't leave our shop!
paper tune hole PAPER TESTING/TUNING
We actually test-shoot each bow. Every bow is paper tested by our staff shooters, to ensure that your arrows will fly like a laser beam when launched from your new bow. Adjustments are made as necessary until each arrow tears a clean "bullet-hole", indicating perfectly level and straight arrow flight for the best possible accuracy. We resolve any and all fletching clearance problems and align each arrow nock for a clean zero-contact launch. Be advised that paper-tuning results are only repeatable if you shoot with proper form (no torquing, trigger-jerking, improper grip pressures, etc.).
tight arrow group RANGE TESTING
Each bow is tested at distance to ensure that arrows will group tightly. 3-Arrow groups are shot at 15, 25, & 35 yards and measured by our staff shooters. We use the 25/2 rule. If our staff shooters aren't grouping 3 arrows into a 2" circle at 25 yards with your new bowhunting package, then we retune until the 25/2 rule is met. While variances in individual shooting form makes exact pre-sighting impossible, we test shoot each bow and rough-set your top sight pin for a 20 yard shot. This gets your sight-pins in the "ball-park" so you won't have to start from scratch - possibly sending an arrow into an unforgiving neighbor's yard.
getting started booklet GETTING STARTED
When you receive your new bow system, you will just need to make fine adjustments to the top pin, then finish-up by setting the remaining pins for the distances you prefer. And if you're new to the sport, or not so handy with tools and gadgetry ... don't worry. You'll also receive a copy of our booklet Getting Started with Your Compound Bow which offers detailed instructions on the sighting-in procedure as well as helpful maintenance and safety tips. WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS BOOKLET THOROUGHLY BEFORE YOU BEGIN SHOOTING.
chronograph CHRONOGRAPH TESTING
We chronograph each bow to ensure that the actual arrow velocity is within the expected range. You will receive a System Statistics report with your new Ready-to-Hunt™ Bow Package. This report will precisely detail the exact velocity of your arrows, grain weight and length of the arrows, recommended tip weights, the exact bow settings, and dozens of other specs related to your bow system. Keep this sheet for your reference. If you ever need additional arrows or want to make changes and adjustments on your bow, you'll have the original data for reference.
shipped by fedex PACKAGING AND SHIPPING
Each fully assembled bowhunting package is delivered - packed tightly in the bow case of your choice. Loose parts, like the release and broadheads, are all safely tucked inside too. Once full, the bow case is boxed and sealed for safe transport. Your bow system is then shipped, via FedEx Ground, to your home or business. A tracking number will be provided to you, so you'll know when to expect delivery. All packages are fully insured and require a signature at the point of delivery.
