You want options? Now you've got them thanks to the revolutionary PowerShift Technology introduced in BowTech's two newest hunting bows — the Prodigy and Boss. No matter if you're looking for maximum speed, top-notch power or an ultra-smooth draw cycle, both models give you "three bows in one."

With a quick and easy position switch of the cam-mounted PowerDisks, you can choose from Performance (maximum speed and power), Classic (smooth draw with power) or Comfort (effortless draw) in one rig. A bow press is not necessary to swap positions.

BowTech Prodigy

bowtech_prodigy_1In addition to PowerShift Technology, the Prodigy weighs just 4.2 pounds, measures 32 inches from axle to axle, has a 7-inch brace height and an 80-percent effective let-off. It will send your arrows down the range at 343 fps, features a draw-length range of 25-30.5 inches and has draw weights of 50, 60 and 70 pounds.


Other features include the FLX-Guard cable-containment system for reduced torque, OverDrive Binary Cams for top-notch tuning and consistency, as well as many noise- and vibration-dampening accessories. The Prodigy comes standard in BlackOps and Mossy Oak Break-Up Country, and is also available in Realtree Xtra Green and Kryptek Highlander.


MSRP: $1,099


BowTech Boss

bowtech_boss_1Thanks to PowerShift Technology, there are no longer any limitations for bowhunters with long draw lengths.

The Boss has a 36-inch axle-to-axle length that can unleash arrows at 333 fps. It weighs 4.6 pounds, features a 7-inch brace height and has an 80-percent letoff. The draw-length range runs from 26½-32 inches, and peak draw weights are set at 50, 60 and 70 pounds.


OverDrive Binary Cams are once again present, as well as the FLX-Guard to eliminate riser torque. Standard finish options are BlackOps and Mossy Oak Break-Up Country, but it is also available in Realtree Xtra Green and Kryptek Highlander.

MSRP: $1,149

BowTech Fanatic


bowtech_fanatic_1Not to be outdone, the Fanatic hits the target bow market with a goal of completely raising the bar for competitive archers everywhere.

Several advancements in riser design are quite noticeable, particularly the shoot-through riser in which the grip is straight in line with the pivot point of the limb. Additionally, the string is aligned with the center of the riser — two factors that greatly prevent torque while drawing and after the release of the shot.

The bow, which weighs in at 4.6 pounds, features an axle-to-axle length of 36 1/2 inches, a brace height of 7 3/4 inches and an effective let-off of 60-75 percent. Draw length can be adjusted from 26-31 inches, available peak draw weights are 40, 50, 60 or 70 pounds and the IBO speed rating sits at 324 fps.

MSRP: $1,499
