Carbon Icon is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 77.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Accurate Bow My wife purchased this bow for an early birthday/Christmas gift a week before 2016 Wisconsin Archery Season. I sighted the bow in on Wednesday before opening day. I shot my 13 pt. buck 17" spread on opening morning of the season. I was pretty lucky that never happens to me. I sighted the bow in at 25 yards. I'm able to aim right on up to 35 yards without noticing arrow drop. The bow is very quiet and light weight with all the top of the line accessories. I'm very please with the bow and would recommend it to any one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great flagship bow Bow nowadays are way overpriced, the 749 was an ok price for this bow. The bow shoots great at 20 yards, anything past is a tough shot for this bow. The bow had a “hollow” sound to it when I shot but was able to quiet that with some limbsavers. The bow seemed to shoot smoother after I installed the limbsavers.I thought the lightweight would be easier to keep steady, I was wrong. Was not completely dead in hand, but did not want to jump out of your hand either. The draw cycle was excellent but sacrificed speed I believe. Back wall was ok. Definitely a bow that could shoot 300s in 5 spot shooting. I’m no pro and shot a decent 286 with it for the ffa shoot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth draw and quiet When my old bow started to show its age and break down I decided to make the move to a new bow. The staff at my local sports shop set me up with the Bowtech Carbon Icon package that included the sight and quiver. After shooting fingers for so many years I was apprehensive about switching to a release. But after some short practice sessions the bow and new release felt great. I loved how smooth the draw felt and how quiet the bow was compared to my old, heavy bow. I love shooting this bow! Second day on stand in my favorite hunting spot I heard that familiar rustle in the leaves and turned to my left to see a nice buck slipping through the woods and pause briefly before stepping into a shooting lane. I would have struggled to draw my old bow, but the Carbon Icon drew so smooth and silently that I was ready for the shot in the blink of an eye! The picture tells the rest of the story. Thanks Bowtech

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first bow ever. I've recently gotten really big into hunting and I tend to be someone who looks for the biggest challenge I can find so instead of purchasing a new rifle I bought my first bow. After shooting a few that were a little more expensive than I wanted to spend I came across this bow. After firing it one time I realized this was the bow for me. With the same smoothness and ease of the more expensive bows I tried but with a much better price tag. I can't imagine a better purchase for a First bow while still wanting a bow that I can use for anything. Can't wait for my first kill with this bow!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great bow, so happy i bought a bowtech! i had a bear before this bow, and it was ok but did not like the jumpy cam and hold weight. i started shooting the carbon icon here and there and it felt SO much better than the bear, i was more accurate and could hold alot longer with the carbon that i decided to switch to one only after having the bear for 7 very happy with my decision and dont regret switching bows at all. im more accurate and have alot more confidence with the icon than I ever did with the bear bow. i would not hesitate to go on any hunt with this bow!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bow yet!!! I purchased my carbon icon in the fall of 2016. And with my personal experience in archery I can honestly say this bow meets every need for me personally. And as we'll as other individual's that I've known and grew up in the outdoors. I started shooting at the age of 7 and shortly after I started shooting competition. I shot a parker bow for years and then I had a martin Bengal. I've purshased and shot several bows in my lifetime but never have dreamed of owning my own bowtech I always had worries of the financial cost of a better production. This bow's price was very reasonable and since it came out I always wanted one. I'm very happy and have such Satisfactory with bowtech's new lines of product and the breakthrough technology they have. I will always be a proud owner of a bowtech and to say for all the fathers out there it is the best product for beginners and our future youth. Also proud to say I will know exactly what to buy my son when it comes to his first bow no doubt in my mind! Thank you for the opertunity for me to experience your product in the lifestyle of the outdoors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bow!! I went to my local archery shop and tried out 3 brands. The Bowtech line has the best feel by far, and the Carbon Icon has a smooth draw with a great let off. It was the clear choice for me and an awesome bow for the money. My first trip to the outdoor range was awesome! Extremely accurate out of the box with no adjustments needed. I can wait to take my first hunting trip!
