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.
The Reckoning was engineered as the first bow to feature DeadLock technology, providing what consumers asked for…accuracy. Not just accuracy, reliable accuracy. This premier bow focuses on a “crossover” product role, and is at home equally as a Target/3D bow, in addition to a longer length axle-to-axle hunting bow option. The Bowtech Reckoning, a new dawn in accuracy that is precise for life.
Simply put, I wouldn’t be a world champion without the Bowtech Reckoning and its Deadlock Technology. Amazing engineering built to chase gold medals!
I have been shooting another brands target bows for a while now and have been super happy with the performance and scores. I have been shooting 65% let off very aggressive cams (wild guess what brand) and it suited my shot style. It was actually somewhat accidental that I stumbled upon a Reckoning 35. I ended up shooting this 80% let off bow with binary cams and deadlock tuning expecting to think "Meh, it is an OKAY bow, but nothing special". Once I got the bow bareshaft tuned to 30 yards in a whopping 5 minutes (not an exaggeration) I started shooting....and shooting.....and shooting.....and kept shooting. My groups were awesome at 50 yards. This blew my mind. I'm not fatigued! I can literally shoot for hours and hours. I ended up changing the standard grip to a high wrist grip and some larger stops. The bow is an absolute monster and I never saw this coming. Believe it or not, I sold my (most expensive shoot through bow ever made with 65% let off aggressive cams) and exclusively shoot the Reckoning. I am actually considering a second one. Being a 3D/Indoor guy, I run long stabilizers and find this bow to hold super well with a 1:1 ratio (I run 10 ounces on front and 10 on back). I willfully choose "Comfort" over "Performance" setting as it makes the bow soooooo smooth and easy, but you do loose a few FPS. For me it is worth the speed loss because this bow is insanely comfortable and easy to shoot all day. Also, believe the HYPE about the Deadlock system. Now, with almost no effort and an Allen wrench, I have a 40 yard bareshaft tuned 12 smashing machine. Arrow is set dead through he berger and dead strait with the riser. Cams are timed and stops are absolutely perfect (used a Justo). I would have never looked at Bowtech as a real target choice and I am super thankful that I got my hands on one. It is not only a good bow, but a superior one to anything I have shot to date (and I have shot or owned all the other premier target bow brands). My first choice in target bow is the Reckoning 35. If I was taller, I would probably shoot the Reckoning 38.
Reckoning 35 (Blue me away with matching limbs)
28 inch DL
27" front stabilizer with 10 ounces (8* down)
12" rear stabilizer with 10 ounces (appx 8* down, 45* out)
Walked into the bow shop, with it narrowed between 3 bows. Two from Bowtech and one from elite. After talking with my bow guy, i was leaning toward the realm X. Loved it, and ready to pull the trigger. And then he was telling about the Reckoning, first thought. Was an ugly bow, with the riser looking backwards. Then I shot it, was so impressed with everything about it. I did not care what it looked like, so out the door it went! it a 2019, and would not trade for any other bow(Bowtech or Not) out there..
