The first thing I noticed about the all-new Bear Attack ($750) is the fit and finish. The improved look meshes nicely with Bear's new technology, starting with the Bear E-Cam. The "E" stands for efficiency, and this single-cam teams with Max Pre-Load Limbs to create what Bear calls "smooth power." With arrow speeds of 340 fps, it's one of the faster single-cam bows available. The Dual Arc Offset String Suppressors resemble a pair of snakes as they reach around the buss cables to deaden string oscillation. The Attack is 31" long with a brace height of 7". It comes in Realtree APG or Shadow Series ground blind finish.
Next in line is the Assault ($550), which carries the same technology as the Attack but has a slightly shorter length, straighter riser, 7.25" brace height, and a speed rating of 328 fps. This one is available in a Ready-To-Hunt package. The Strike ($400) features Bear's familiar Flared Quad Limbs and a forgiving brace height of 7.75" in a short, 30" bow. Also new for 2010 is the Apprentice ($280), a 2.9 lb. youth bow with 13" of draw length adjustment.
