diamond core banner Diamond Core Compound Bow Package
40-70#, One Limb
No more absurd limb changes and tiny adjustment ranges. The new Core has only two part numbers ... right hand and left hand. Every Diamond Core adjusts all the way from 40# up to a full 70# at ANY draw length. All you'll need is a hex wrench. You want more power - just crank'er up.
We expected the new Diamonds would be good deals for 2015, but the new Diamond Core is simply a value superstar. At just $555 fully loaded and Ready-to-Hunt™, the new Diamond Core is priced like a bargain close-out bow. But this is no basic starter-bow design. The new Diamond Core is a serious contender. With a 313 fps IBO speed and a forgiving 7.25" brace height, the Core is sure to be a hunting season favorite again for 2015. If you're considering a first trek into the deer woods, or you're ready to upgrade an old rig without spending a bundle, the Core is definitely a bow to consider.

The Diamond Core is built to be fast, sleek, and lightweight. In spite of the beautiful long-riser parallel-limb design, this bow weighs just 3.2 lb. Did you catch that? Only 3.2 lb. That's lighter than the Mathews Hēlim @ $949 AND the Hoyt Carbon Element G3 @ $1,499. And this bow is literally half the price. If you're looking for an ultra-light performance bow, you don't have to spend a grand. We tested early prototypes at the Bowtech factory last fall, and we were blown away by how quiet and shock-free this bow really is - not just for a "value-priced bow" - for any bow. The Core would easily compete with a number of the flagship bows out there. It's that good.

The integrated string stop does a fabulous job at arresting string noise, and the unit just feels good and tight - no buzzing, no rattling, no kick or drama at the release. Many of us liked it even better than the Outlaw, one of the best selling-bows in our store history. The Core is just a really good bow at an affordable price - plain and simple. Another home run for Diamond!

Of course, 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.
Arrow Cautionl
When you order your new Diamond Core, we will include arrows of the appropriate length and spine stiffness for the initial bow settings you request. But be advised, since this bow has such a HUGE adjustment range, you could easily adjust the bow beyond the capabilities of your original arrows if you make significant changes later. Arrow Safety Bulletin
Diamond integrates their string suppression system into the new Core. There's no need for string silencers or cat-whiskers. The string stop arrests string oscillation before it has a chance to generate noise.
Includes the bow, the arrows, accessories, and it arrives ready-to-shoot.

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.

You can upgrade to this case for only $10 more. If you prefer a hard-shell bowcase, we will gladly send your bow package in one of our standard plastic hard-cases (model may vary) for only $20 more. If you do a lot of traveling and require a premium case, you may upgrade to the Plano 1144 Parallel-Limb Bow Case (a $90 case at most places) for only $50 more. 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.
