Hoyt MagnaTec Archery Bows

Archery Bows Manufacturer: Hoyt
Hoyt Model: MagnaTec
Review Category: Archery Bows

Purchase: Archery Bows I had been looking at a few different bows at the time this one came along. I was teetering between a Mathews Solocam and a Hoyt MagnaTec. I had asked a few of the guys I work with and one of them told me he was trying to sell his Hoyt MagnaTec and told me he would sell me a dozen arrows, sights, quiver, and the bow for $500. I bought the settup which would have retailed for over $650.

Things I like about the Hoyt MagnaTec Archery Bows: This was probably the best choice I have made in a while. When I went and shot the bow for the first time I was thoroughly amazed at its accuracy. At 60 yds I could put 6 arrows in a 5 inch circle. I was also impressed with its recoil, it had almost none. It had plenty of speed which was around 305 fps. Many say that you sacrifice accuracy when you gain speed, but this bow must have been an exception.

What I don't like about the Hoyt MagnaTec: One of the very few things I did not like about this bow was its axle to axle length. It did become hard to maneuver when I got into the thick brush. Another downfall was its weight. Compared to other bows I have shot this bow weighed just a little bit more. The only reason this was a downfall is because I walked alot and it got heavy after a while.

Archery Bows MagnaTec quality: This bow has been very well engineered with its 3/4 inch split limb design and cam and 1/2 cams. It has a shock absorbing bar just behind the handle that was very clever.

MagnaTec summary: This in my opinion is the best bow you can get for your moneys worth. I shot a nice 24" mule deer this year with the bow and I hit the deer in the brisket at about 40 yds. The arrow penetrated the windpipe, lungs, heart, and guts. The deer only ran about 20 feet before it died. After seeing what the bow did to that deer I dont know if I will ever replace it. It is the most accurate reliable bow I have ever owned.
