10 New Bow Accessories for 2013

10 New Bow Accessories for 2013

Like the much anticipated reveal of the new iPhone or iPad each year, bowhunters wait with sweaty palms to see the latest and greatest the industry has to offer at the Archery Trade Association (ATA) Show in January. Just when you think you've seen it all, somebody drops the bombshell that revolutionizes bowhunting forever. What new toys and trends will this belated Christmas time spectacular bring for 2013?

Every bowhunter knows it's the little details that make the difference, which is why we spend just as much time selecting a sight, rest or quiver as we do anything else. But don't worry, we've got you covered. From the biggest names to some newer faces on the market, Bowhunter brings you 10 of the most exciting new accessories for 2013.

Satori Streamline Quiver

Had enough of heavy, bulky quivers that sit far from your bow causing additional unbalance? Enter the new Satori Streamline quick-detach quiver from FUSE Accessories, a close and tight-fitting quiver for better balance and a more compact and accurate bowhunting rig. With stealthy silence in mind, patented Shock Rod Technology kills unwanted noise and vibration. The long-span design grips arrows like a two-piece quiver but is detachable for easy removal and holds six arrows, but with the added security of a longer span to eliminate annoying arrow rattle.

MSRP: $122.99

KTECH Intrepid Stabilizer

KTECH Designshad introduced its all-new Intrepid Stabilizer for 2013. The company prides itself on design and function, and has this product loaded with the best technology available. Utilizing Weight-Forward Modular Weight Position capability and outboard Vibration Reduction Rods, the 6-inch, 6.6-ounce stabilizer showcases the perfect blend of balance and control. Also, CNC Machined 6061-T6 Aluminum Components, along with an Integrated Center Truss, makes the Intrepid extremely durable. Available in Lost Camo, Lost Camo AT, Realtree AP, Mossy Oak Break-Up Infinity, Black, Carbon Fiber, Harvest Moon and Muddy Girl.

HI-5 Quiver

New for 2013 comes the HI-5 arrow quiver from Kwikee Kwiver. The product will make the archers job just a little bit easier for the coming year with its vertically adjustable, five-arrow detachable design. A new mounting bracket is one of the added features for this year — a feature that you'll be sure to love — but the HI-5 will still be able to be used with Kwikee Kwiver mounting brackets from the past.

Hamskea VersaRest

New for 2013, Hamskea Archery Solutions' fall-away VersaRest is available with a bowhunter-friendly full-containment ring. As the name implies, the VersaRest is the most versatile rest on the market because it can be set up to operate via the top or bottom limbs, upward or downward cables or cable slide.

It can also be set up as a fixed-position blade launcher or adjustable spring-tension blade. Comes with choice of three launchers and features numerous adjustments for lancher position and angle for ultimate customization. The VersaRest is built like a tank yet delivers precision performance for maximum accuracy.

Trophy Taker PRO Series

Trophy Taker's PRO Seriesof arrow rests was an instant hit with archers, and now you have the option of adding a full-containment ring to the model of your choice. The ring uses a flexible rubber flap to guard the opening and it fully captures your arrow when nocked.

For the popular SmackDown Pro, attachment can be made to the upper limb, lower limb or your upward cable. For The X-Treme FC Pro, rests attach to your bow's down cable. An unconditional lifetime warranty is placed on all PRO Series rests.

T.R.U. Ball Fang

A rubber trigger insert for exceptional feel is just one of the features incorporated into T.R.U. Ball's new release for 2013 — the Fang. The Fang is a hook-style release with a pair of trigger options.

The first is a straight trigger for more draw length and speed. The other is a relaxed trigger for maximum comfort. With a separate trigger pressure setting screw, you can choose your preferred weight spring package. A red anodized hook and trigger combination gives you a winning look as well.

MSRP: $119.99

BowJax

BowJax, known for its noise- and vibration-reduction tools, is at it again with the Super Size Max Jax Stabilizer Dampeners for that extra measure of dampening to your stabilizers. They feature a ¾-inch center hole that can stretch to fit stabilizers up to 1€‰1„4 inches wide. Available in black, olive green, pink, brown, red, blue, purple and orange.

BCY Bowstring

BCY Bowstring has added Gore fiber to its strings for even more durability than normal — a fact that leads them to advertise that it now has the 'toughest bowstring material ever made. ' A smaller diameter strand allows for the highest speeds possible, as well as providing stability, safety, durability and reliability.

Hot Shot Nano

Last year, Hot Shot Manufacturing introduced the Nano, a small, index-finger release aid. Well, the Nano is back and better than ever for 2013.

First, the improved shape and style of the Nano's head is teeming with shooter-friendly features. Brand new engraving gives the Nano a sporty look, and the trimmed down design makes the release ready to take to the field with maximum comfort on your hand. Additionally, the Nano's strap also received an upgrade as it's now made of premium leather with adjustments that can be made more quickly than before.

The Bow Hitch

Does your treestand leave you with limited space, leaving you to hold your bow or hang it in an inconvienent place? The Bow Hitch from Bohning Archery will tackle that problem. With a unique 'L ' Bracket and receiver system, your bow will be sitting right there when you need it. The bracket attaches to your riser using the stabilizer threads and weighs just 1.3 ounces. Slide the bracket into the mounted receiver and you're in business.

A climbing aider is a device that you use in conjunction with a stick that helps you gain more height per stick, but at the addition of very little weight to the stick setup. An aider can provide one or two more steps per each stick section, thereby greatly increasing height potential when needed and allowing you to carry fewer total sticks to gain a specific height.
