The 2019 season introduces the REDWRX carbon bows to meet the needs of the serious hunters and have also brought the brand new RX-3 Series risers to the market. These risers form the basis for the flagship models in the new range. The RX-3 risers are hand laid with over 50 individual carbon layers. They are hollow tubes and they are tuned to provide precision and performance in a lightweight design. The RX-3 has been released in 3 models, the standard, the Ultra and the Turbo.

An early release for the season was the Nitrux which has become the company’s low priced performance hunting bow. As always, the company remains strong in the competition bow sector with its selection of Prevail and Pro Force bows.

Take a look at the bows that have been said to be leading the industry, particularly in the carbon bow category.

Hoyt Carbon RX-3

The Carbon RX-3 compound bow is new for 2019 and uses the new REDWRX carbon system to ensure the bow performs to the highest standards in all types of hunting conditions.

The RX-3 carbon technology that has been used in the riser consists of more than 50 individual carbon components that have been put together to form a one piece rigid bow riser that is also extremely light weight. The result is greater stiffness and vibration control.

The cam system is the ZT (Zero Torque) Pro Cam that creates a balanced side-to-side load with the Split-Cable System. This cam is faster and smoother than previous cams from the company and is also the highest let-off cam thus far.

Other features to look forward to include the Adjustable Grip System that adjusts left and right laterally for ultimate tuning and center shot alignment based on the different hand shapes, the Shock Pod Vibration Damping System and the StealthShot string suppression system which has had an upgrade.

The bow is available in Realtree Edge, Kuiu Verde, Gore Optifade Subalpine, Gore Optifade Elevated II, Under Armour Ridge Reaper Barren, Store and BlackOut finishes. It has been released with an MSRP of $1699.00.
