Revolver Dampener
This bow features a unique tunable set of riser dampeners - which also serve as customizable counterweights. Each dampener has 5 weighted (removable) slugs, arranged in a pentagonal pattern. Use this system to fine tune the feel of your bow any way you like.
SPECIAL BLACK OPS PRECISION PACKAGE: The name Experience seemed almost whimsical to us at first, but we have an idea why Bowtech chose this name. It took Bowtech over a decade to finally build this bow. More than a decade of experimentation, development, testing and field-experience has been devoted to this pursuit. We won't even bother to lather this bow with industry buzz words; it's simply beyond that.

The Experience shares much of its gene pool with the Insanity CPX, but the Experience is regal and polished and refined in a way the Insanity is not.  The draw cycle is notably modified.  It's more gradual in the transitions, the let-off arrives naturally, unhurried.  The peg touches down in a rather expected and instinctive way.  There's no need to jerk or rush through your routine. Somehow, with the Experience, it's all under control.

When you fire this bow, the lack of drama is almost alarming.  The bow barely gestures.  All you hear is the sound of the air whipping through your fletchings and the click of your release.  As many evaluators have noted, the Experience feels less like a machine, and more like a natural extension of your arm.  Pardon the wordplay, but you have to experience it to believe it.

For those who live and breathe bowhunting, a bow that's almost good enough just won't do. That's why Bowtech built the Experience. Sometimes there can be no compromises, no trade-offs - and the only acceptable option is to own the best equipment money can buy. Learn more about the Experience.

Of course, we've loaded this bow with a full compliment of carefully matched parts and accessories. But don't expect your order to be delivered full of loose items and assembly instructions. This rig comes ready to rock as soon as you open the case. Our pro-shop does all the work in-advance. So when you get it, the bow system is 100% ready to shoot. Seriously! Scroll down for all the details. This bow is also available in a standard Mossy Oak Infinity camo finish package.
Red Modules
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.
Dry-Fire Promise
At 335 fps IBO, the Experience stores considerable energy at full draw. Dry-firing this bow literally makes the bow unleash all that power upon itself. We promise you ... a dry-fire will result in immediate (and expensive) cam damage. Never shoot - never even draw - this bow without an arrow properly nocked on the string. Don't risk it.
Includes the bow, the arrows, accessories, and it arrives ready-to-shoot.

special pick iconarmortech h5 5-pin sight YOUR SIGHT
Axcel Armortech HS 5-Pin .019 w/Hooded Lens Retainer

SPECIAL HIGH-SPEED MODEL: The Armortech Hunting Sight was voted best buy winner from Inside Archery Magazine, in spite it selling for over $200 in most stores (without the lens hood/retainer). It's THAT good. This five-pin sight has everything serious bowhunters want from a technical sight with micro-adjustable windage and elevation AND micro-drive adjustment on all five pins. Tool-less windage and elevation thumb locks and knobs too. But what will blow you away is the outstanding machining and finish quality, and it's MADE IN THE USA! This sight not only adjusts better and looks nicer, it's actually more accurate than standard sights. True-center vision is possible because of the hour glass shape inside the scope that provides a perfectly circular sight picture, even if you're slightly off-center. Armor Fiber Technology provides 100% protection to the fully enclosed .019" fiber optics. and we include the optional hooded lens retainer (because it looks really cool) and so you can add optional 1.75" lenses if you wish. First class!


special pick iconapex gamechanger quiver in tactical black

Apex Gamechanger Quiver in Tactical Black

This is the spare-no-expense quiver built from CNC machined aluminum construction - not a plastic molding process. The Apex Gamechanger features a unique cam-lock mounting bracket that allows one-hand removal, but keeps the quiver locked tight against the bow riser to reduce torque and provide superior balance. Multi-position mounting bracket allows ensures a good fit, so the quiver tucks in nice and tight just where you want it. Quiver hood is coated with Tru-Touch soft-feel coating, so it's quiet in the woods, and rubber hood inserts is specifically designed to never dull broadheads while reducing noise and vibration. Dual drippers hold carbon or aluminum arrows tight and rigid aluminum hanging hook is provided for use in treestands or ground blinds. This quiver is a gorgeous match for the Bowtech Experience. We can think of no better companion for this awesome package.

trufire hardcore bbf max release YOUR RELEASE
Tru-Fire Hardcore BBF Max

This is one of the most ultra-high quality releases we've ever seen ... and it's a spot-on match for the Experience Black Ops package. Features trigger pressure adjustable from 3 to over 16 ounces, a super-plush black buckle strap, over 1” of length adjustment, and fully adjustable trigger travel and swept back trigger.

Octane 7" Black/Red Stabilizer

There’s plenty of reason to get worked up over Octane's new piston-based stabilizer. The piston action directs any movement away from the bow and toward the target, eliminating vertical, horizontal and lateral stabilizer movement. In addition to the dampening attributes, Octane stabilizers enhance accuracy by keeping the bow in line with the target during launch.

STANDARD WITH EVERY BOW: Every bow package we sell comes safely packaged and transported in a quality bow case. Cardboard boxes are fine for some things, but nothing protects a new compound bow like a case specifically built for that purpose. This bow package comes (standard) with your choice of a Camo Soft Case or a Black Soft Case w/Arrow Pocket. Both cases are padded and secure, with plenty of room for your extra gear and loose items. Lightweight soft cases easily fit behind truck seats, in closets, under beds, etc., and are the popular choice.

Special bow case pricing is only available with the purchase of a new Ready-to-Hunt™ compound bow package.       MORE DETAILS

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.
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.
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.
