Just like the rest of the Bowtech line-up, the Carbon Overdrive draws its might from the proven Binary Cam system. There are no timing or synchronization issues to worry about - no nock travel or tuning headaches to wrestle with. The Binary Cams automatically equalize system imbalances, so every shot is as dead-accurate as the last. All you have to do is draw back and shoot.
|Technically brilliant! The new 2014 Bowtech Carbon Overdrive is one of the most advanced compound bows ever built. Framed with cutting-edge forged carbon composite technology, the Carbon Overdrive tips the scales at a svelte 3.3 pounds. Like all Bowtech bows, it's blistering fast - cranking out 342 fps with hardly a whisper and zero hand-shock. But that's not the best part. The Carbon Overdrive is spooky accurate. We've been testing early samples of this bow since January, and frankly, our 35 yard indoor range just doesn't challenge the Carbon Overdrive.
We decided to move outdoors and have a little fun testing the SABO Gen-2 Tactical Holographic sight on the Carbon Overdrive, and accuracy just became ridiculous. Wherever we put the holographic dot - that's where the arrow landed. Even when we backed-up to puerile distances, the Carbon Overdrive kept driving tacks. The combination was pinpoint lethal. Of course, we won't condone bowhunting at unethical yardages, but this bow and sight combination is effective way beyond the customary bowhunting zone. So we decided to build this combo into a special Ready-to-Hunt™ bow package for 2014.
This bow package includes some of the best high-tech parts and accessories on the market: aluminum framed quiver, an advanced drop-away system, quick-disconnect stabilizer, integrated dampening technologies, etc. You want stability and tactical precision? You got it. For our tech-savvy customers, this is THE tactical dream rig for 2014.
This rig comes fully-loaded with some of the best parts we could get our hands on - the whole works: arrow 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. This awesome bowhunting rig arrives 100% ready to shoot.
This bow features an advanced rotating module system, allowing draw adjustments without the need to buy cams or additional parts. However, module setting changes must be performed in a proper bow press. Never attempt to loosen your modules yourself. Return to HF for service.
This bow stores tremendous energy at full draw. If you dry-fire this bow (releasing the string without an arrow properly nocked on the string), you WILL seriously damage the bow - we promise.

|YOUR TACTICAL SIGHT
TAS SABO Generation 2 Tactical Holographic Bow Sight
First things first. THE SABO IS NOT A LASER and it is 50-STATE POPE & YOUNG LEGAL. The SABO requires no electronics and it does not project anything onto the actual target. Although the sight can be used with an optional sight light (for very low light conditions), the SABO operates with natural light and fiber optics - just like a regular pin sight. But unlike a simple pin sight, the SABO works by superimposing four red dots (generated from ambient light through fiber optics) onto a specially coated concave lens. All you have to do is place the red dot on the target - align the green arrow in your sight picture - and pull the trigger. You can't miss.
Best of all, the SABO system is entirely peepless. If you've ever struggled with misbehaving peep sights or if you use corrective lenses, the SABO solves all your sighting woes. The SABO system aligns the bow - not just the shooter's line of sight. So regardless of the angle at which you view the holographic dots, as long as the red dot and the lens triangle are aligned - you're right on target. This system also automatically alerts you if your shooting form needs attention. Any hand torque can be immediately identified and corrected in just seconds. You just take the shot! Read more about setting up the SABO Holographic Sight.
6 Carbon Express Maxima Red Arrows
Our most advanced arrow for our most high-tech bow package. Check out these gorgeous CX Maxima Reds. Straight to an amazing ±.0025", the Maxima Red offers a number of advantages to the serious shooters. Managing how an arrow flexes in flight (Dynamic Spine) is the key to arrow accuracy, and no one does a better job at this than Carbon Express. The new Maxima RED is a breakthrough in controlling Dynamic Spine. The new, hi-tech carbon design has stiffer ends to contain the arrow’s flex to what we call the RED ZONE. The RED ZONE™ is the section of the arrow shaft engineered to contain Dynamic Spine and make a broadhead shoot more consistently. Available in 350 and 250 spine sizes, the Maxima Red will match perfectly to the output of your new Carbon Overdrive. Practice tips included.

|R.T.H. BOW PACKAGE DETAILS: SERVICES PERFORMED|
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!
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.).
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.
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.
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.
|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.
