10 Hottest New Flagship Bows for 2015

10 Hottest New Flagship Bows for 2015

A lot of bowhunters start looking at new bows during the summer so they can get outfitted and start shooting before the season opens in the fall. Hardcore bowhunters realize that summer is about four months too late for that task.

If you've got the itch to shoot a few new bows — and maybe run up the credit card bill — there are plenty of options to choose from in 2015. Every couple of years it seems like several of the major manufacturers offer up something truly innovative, and those years are the best to shop for a new rig. This happens to be one of those years.

There are several models sporting new technologies that make shooting more enjoyable, which is way more important than arrow speed or mass weight of a certain bow. Having fun shooting is the key to shooting a lot, which is the key to being a good shot. Or at least, it's one of the key elements.

How have the manufacturers made these bows enjoyable to shoot? By focusing on draw cycle and the overall feel of the shot sequence. We've largely shifted away from chasing supersonic arrow speeds and are trending toward comfortable, accurate bows. This is good news for 99 percent of the bowhunters out there, and great news if you're looking for a top-notch rig to start your 2015 season right.

Following are 10 models to consider:
