In our November/Whitetail Special 2010 issue, we gave notice to a new bow line, called Prime, from G5 Outdoors. The Centroid™ ($999) and Shift™ ($999) are the first two bows being produced under the Prime name.

At the forefront of both are G5's Parallel Cam™ Technology and Ti-Glide™ flexible titanium cable guard, which combine to virtually eliminate cam lean and reduce horizontal nock travel and limb fatigue.


Other shared features include a forged 7000 Series T6 aluminum riser that's twice as strong as 6061 T6 aluminum; C-1 laminated limbs designed to reduce torsional stress; Gore® Fiber string and cables; a 7" brace height; IBO speed of 332 fps; and a Shield™ Grip made of G10 material that repels water and odors.

The Centroid is 34" long and is available in draw lengths of 27"-31" and weights of 50, 60, and 70 lbs. The Shift is 30" long with draw lengths of 26"-30" and weights of 50, 60, and 70 lbs. Both are offered in Optifade™ Forest, Optifade Open Country, Realtree® AP HD™, and Black.

Tree Saddle Hunting: Best New Climbing Aider Options

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.
