Lighter bows can be great for mobility while adding weight or dampeners can virtually eliminate vibration.
Compound bows have an adjustable draw length range and should be set to fit your unique body size and shape.
Max draw weights can typically be reduced by 10lbs. This provides comfortable draw cycles for everyone while maximizing energy.
Today’s average bow speeds offer more forgiveness on the shot than ever. Faster bows can deliver more downrange energy.
Longer bows can increase stability while shorter bows can be better suited for maneuverability and tight spaces.
A longer brace height can offer more forgiveness on the shot while a shorter brace height can make a fast bow even faster.
Crank up everything you thought possible in this price range because nothing holds a tune to the new Amplify. With a full 62 pounds of draw-weight adjustability and 9” of draw-length adjustment, it’ll accommodate virtually any archer to perfection. Add the accuracy and hard-hitting power of our Binary Cam system and you’ve got more smooth-drawing, arrow-splitting precision than anything in its class.
So, before I write this review, I’ll say that this is my very first bow. I’ve shot a couple bows before I decided to get a bow of my own. One being a Mathews Helon5 last year. Went to my local-ish (it’s a 2 hour drive from my house) back in March 2021 and had my sights on a bow, which wasn’t this bow. When I walked in, after talking to the staff, I looked at a bear, Hoyt, and the bowtech amplify. I shot all 3, the bear got dropped out of the line up. I shot the Hoyt torrex, and the amplify back to back. The amplify won. I have since shot the bow around 100-150 times since purchasing it. The adjustability of the bow, the wide spectrum of it covering the draw weight and draw length is by far the best bow for the price. I would definitely recommend this bow to anyone looking to get into archery, wether it’s for hunting or recreation. The only thing that I don’t like (it’s the same with ALL BOW MANUFACTURES) is that after a while your string will stretch and you’ll get peep twist. From what I have researched, if you get custom strings made for you, and after they are made and the strings and cables get put on the bow then you won’t have any peep rotation. If you YouTube custom strings bow strings you’ll have a few videos come up, and some of them are from a pro shop and explain why custom is better than factory. I hope this review helps someone decide on this bow and I hope you enjoy it. Have a great day.
Bought this bow early in 2021 and love it. I have been out of the sport for a few years due to an arm injury and wanted a smooth shooting bow. I tried the Amplify and loved it, I have it set at 60lbs with a 29 inch draw. I can hit the 3d targets at 60 yards with ease, and looking forward to hunting with it. Highly recommend this bow.
I am 75 and have just returned to Archery after 63 years - essentially brand new. When I experienced the bow in the Archery store I was impressed by the feel - even before setup. The draw is very smooth and the letoff is more than adequate for my needs - 85%. My bow is set for 50# until I can improve strength and stamina to go to 60# and maybe 70# at a later date.
One of the real selling points for me is the adjustability. Bowtech has hit a home run for me. The bow draw weight is adjustable from 7 - 70 pounds and the draw length adjustable from 21-30" making is usable for a very wide range of archers including older people such as myself. The Bow came well setup from the factory and required nothing special to tune it to my use. While I have not chosen to do so at this time, switching the bow from comfort to performance via the Flip Disc system was also a great plus for me.
The price point for this level of quality (I was a Senior Quality Engineer in Aerospace during my career) is excellent. An acquaintance has a high end bow ($1,100) and I cannot feel enough difference to make the extra cost worthwhile. Don't get me wrong, the high end bow is excellent, and better than mine, but not 2 times more money better, in my opinion. Also it does not have the adjustability my bow has so I have less adjustment available to adapt to my changing needs over time - up or down.
The draw, feel and balance of the bow are extremely comfortable for me, even as a senior. I do not expect to be buying a replacement - perhaps not ever - since I would feel comfortable shooting the bow both as a hunter and as a target shooter.
Would I buy another one if needed? Absolutely! Would I recommend this bow? Absolutely - especially for younger shooters and also for older shooters who are new to the sport or who no longer have the strength of youth.
I got it for my 12 year old son and we both love it!!!!
This is my first ever bow. Being brand new, I wasn't going to spend the money of a higher end model, but also the adjustability to start at ~40lbs but go upto 50,60,70 wherever I wanted. And also to easily adjust down to allow others to try when/if I wanted.
I went directly to bow tech, and they recommended the Amplify and a diamond to compare. I couldn't really tell the difference, but the staff said the Amplify was great, would hold value better... and it came in a color I liked better.
I have since shot it for about 3 weeks, and have even gone to a small indoor competition. Everyone was impressed with how well a new shooter was doing with it, but also commented its a great bow with little to no vibration and a great choice.
Would highly reccomend it... for me the adjustability over a set draw bow with only +/- 10lbs adjustability was a big selling point. Not stuck with an expensive bow that can never be adjusted more than 10 lbs. This adds a lot of flexibility.
At the recent indoor 3d shoot I went to... I was having a hard time pulling arrows on some targets... the owner a bow tech competitive shooter was shocked and asked what y draw weight/length was... and proceeded with "Thats a FAST bow!" I like that as well, even at 40lbs... it's got some velocity and power.
