Normally, we do not add new bows to our line up this late into the model year, BUT with the all new Quest Centec, we were all to happy to make an exception. We were initially drawn in by its overall design but it did not take long for us to decide that this one was a must have for our 2020 line up. The Centec is a straight up JOY to shoot and has somehow managed to remain a somewhat "hidden gem" in the compound bow mark so far this year. This is actually pretty shocking considering just how freaking sweet this bow actually is. The Centec is a silky smooth, well balanced arrow launching machine capable of clocking speeds of up to 335 FPS. Specs wise, it keeps up with just about anything else out there so it is hard to see why it stands out  from the crowd just based on specs alone. The magic happens when you grip it and go to draw it back for the first time. We found ourselves nocking arrow, after arrow , after arrow just to make sure what we were feeling was not a fluke, and after many dozens of shots we were all very happy with the overall performance of the Centec. An awesome bow, at an awesome low price! 

Of course, we love hot-sellers, but we also love sweet shooters - and the Species blew us away on the test range. The Species is quiet as a church mouse and really easy to draw and shoot. It balances out nicely in your hand, and there's not a breath of recoil. We couldn't find anything not to love. It's easy to adjust, easy to tune and it was even punching slightly over its advertised IBO Speed. This bow is fast enough to harvest anything on the continent. There's nothing about this bow that suggests "beginner" bow, but we can't think of a better place for an aspiring bowhunter to start. If you're looking to get bowhunting without dropping a grand, just get the new Bear Species. It's a good bow at any price - but it's a no-brainer at $299. Give it a try. If you don't love it as much as we do, send it back.
A raw factory-boxed compound bow is commonly called a "bare" bow (not to be confused with a "Bear" bow - as in Bear Archery Products). Most archery e-tailers sell these bare bows directly to consumers as is, but we think that's a lazy and irresponsible way to distribute archery equipment. We hate to tell you this, but it is VERY common to unbox a new "bare" bow and find significant cam lean, loose fasteners, uneven limb tiller, poor cam timing, axles spaced incorrectly, improperly set draw-stop pegs, unset cable clearances, unchased mounting holes, cables crossed on the wrong side, etc. A bow that's dead nuts perfect right out of a box is fairly rare, from ANY brand. This doesn't mean compound bows are bad quality products, they just need some individual attention and competent technical setup before they're put into service. So when ecommerce archery resellers try to sell factory-boxed compound bows as "no touch" merchandise, it often results in poor customer satisfaction rates and mediocre field performance (or worse). e.
We don't sell raw bows like that. After 17 years in the business, we've learned it's a guaranteed recipe for failure. We just won't do it. Fortunately, we have a fully-equipped archery pro-shop and we have a MUCH better method. You're going to love this. When you buy a "bare" bow at Hunter's Friend, you get something you won't find at any other e-commerce archery retailer ... real technical service. Best of all, it won't cost you a dime extra. We feel that strongly about it. We want you to be happy and successful with your new bow, so this isn't just lip service. We're putting our money where our mouth is. Every "bare" compound bow comes with a FREE ARROW REST, PEEP SIGHT, AND STRING LOOP, along with our complimentary round of key services:

  • Containment-Style Arrow Rest (installed)
  • Draw Weight Adjustments
  • Draw Length Adjustments
  • Let-Off Adjustments (if equipped)
  • Peep Sight Installation
  • String Loop/Nocking Point (installed)
  • Paper-Tuning/Flight-Tuning
  • Chronograph & KE Report
  • Arrow Spine Matching Report
  • All Technical Alignments
When you receive the bow, all that's left to do is install your sight, quiver, stabilizer and other accessories, then grab your arrows and go sight it in. We take care of all the technical tasks and hassles in advance: the bow press operations, module changes, managing specialty fasteners, serving string jobs, cinching string loop knots, setting cam timing, debugging noises, etc. We take care of it all. When you get the bow, the technical problems are already solved. Done! So when you start shooting your new bow, you won't be fighting tuning or setup issues. Your arrows will actually fly straight. Your cams will actually be in time. Your bow will actually be performing as it was designed to perform. That's a recipe for a good experience, and frankly, it's just the right thing to do. If you choose, we will even install your accessories for you. It's up to you.
