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 own two Bowtech Revolt X bows, one of which I turned into an open class target bow, just to give target archery a try during the hunting off season.
LOVE my Revolt X bows, but I wanted a dedicated target bow with a bit longer ATA and brace.
I got to shoot a Reckoning and was immediately in love. Even though it was only a month til the 2022 bows came out, I wanted to make SURE I got a Reckoning because it was just a stunning bow! The draw, valley and wall are PERFECT. The bow shoots insanely well and is SO Forgiving.
I built the bow out myself at my home shop in a couple hours, set center shot, and it shot a perfect bullet hole thru paper with NO Tuning. Timing was dead on (same with my Revolt X).
Once sighted in, the Reckoning just HAMMERS the X Ring! Even poor shots seems to find the center like No Other Bow I have ever owned for shot. I am Thrilled!
Thank you, Again, Bowtech!

This is the best compound bow to shoot for target/3D archery. Smooth and accurate do not even begin to describe how awesome this bow shoots. It's also the coolest looking bow around. You need to try out this bow if you haven't. I ordered the Reckoning 35 without testing it, because the shop I went to didn't have one in stock and the bow exceeded my expectations from shot one. If you have the money to invest in this expensive bow, buy one and you will not be disappointed. After tuning in this bow to you, it shoots accurate every time and it's extremely forgiving. If there ever were to be a mythical bow encased in stone and fit for a King, it would be the Reckoning. It's the Excalibur of bows!
Drove down from Salem with my son to buy bows for the both of us .We are newbies to archery so when we came in the pro shop we met Gary and I'm so thankful for that because Gary has so much wisdom in archery and that was god sent . He had us up and shooting in hours with no experience .I'm so happy I choose BowTech and had Gary along for the ride .We our now proud owners of a Diamond Infinite 305 and a BowTech Reckoning .Shooting groups in hours for the both of us at age 10 and 49 .Great Job!!!
This bow is unbelievable! So accurate and forgiving, and a breeze to shoot on the comfort setting!
Once I had it in my hands: I used a laser to find the center shot for the rest, ran the shaft straight through the Berger hole and miked the cams central position. At that point everything was dead in line. Chose my target shaft on the Victory arrow selection chart on the stiffer side… Well it tore right (slightly) showing a weak shaft! Up an down was perfect! It only took an CCW 1/8 of a turn on the dead lock system top and bottom to bullet hole (it takes 3 full turns and some change to move the cams entirely from one side to the other - lots of ability to shoot just about any shaft you choose)!
It’s incredibly fast 288 FPS with a 380 grain arrow at 59# 30” DL.
The way the limb locking system works it prevents any slop in the function of the bow and is quieter than anything I’ve ever shot without sound dampening!
It’s so shooter friendly you will not be disappointed — Probably won’t be able to put it down!
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.
