Mission's new Maniac ($449) stands out because of its extreme adaptability and budget-conscious price. The Maniac has nearly 40 lbs. of draw weight adjustment, and a rotating module on the cams gives you draw lengths from 22"-30" -- all in a single bow! Choose 70, 60 or 50-lb. limbs. Draw weight varies with draw length. For example, with the 60-lb. limbs and cams set for a 22" draw, the draw weight is 49 lbs. peak, 27 lbs. minimum. At 30" draw, the peak draw weight is 64 lbs., the minimum 42 lbs. This adjustability lets you adapt your Maniac to various family members, from the largest to the smallest. At peak draw weight and 31" draw length, the Maniac produces arrow speeds up to 310 fps.
At the top end of the Mission line, the new single-cam Voyager ($649) gives you a 34" bow with a 7" brace height that spits out arrows up to 323 fps. The Eliminator II ($499) is next at 30.25" long with a 7.13" brace height and 319 fps. The Menace ($269), a very popular youth version of the new Maniac, will get your youngster into bowhunting for very little money!
