For the 2020 season Hoyt has made a little change to the categorization of its hunting compound bows. The premier bows have been put into three categories: Alpha, Turbo and Ultra. The bows in these categories have been made available in high-performance carbon and aluminum.

The Alpha bows are lightweight and compact making them ideal for use in treestands and from blinds or anywhere that features close quarters.

The Turbo bows are the fastest bows in the range and are capable of reaching speeds of up to 350 fps.

The Ultra bows are the longer axle to axle bows that exhibit a great level of stability as well as providing greater forgiveness.

The 2020 range amounts to 12 bows and cover all potential shooting scenarios with all ability and experience levels catered to.

Hoyt Carbon RX-4 Alpha

The carbon technology that has been developed by Hoyt has been taken another step further by using it in a shorter axle to axle bow providing tremendous strength to weight ratio in a maneuverable frame.

The bow is powered by the new ZTR cam and 1/2 system to enable fast speed on a smooth draw. It has a solid back wall and is quiet on the shot.

Features used in the construction of the bow include the Split Cable system, an integrated Rest Mounting System, Shock Pods and StealthShot string suppression to remove vibration and noise and a Custom-Tune Grip which allows small lateral adjustments to be made.

This is a small framed bow that measures only 29.5 inches from axle to axle. The draw length ranges from 25 to 28 inches and 28 to 30 inches and the adjustments are quick and simple to make.

The bow is available in a wide range of hunting patterns and it has been released by the company with an MSRP of $1699.00.

Hoyt Axius Alpha

The Axius has the same size specifications and sports the same features as the RX-4 bows in the series. The difference lies in the fact that the riser is an aluminum design which adds some weight to the frame along with differences in the bow’s stiffness.

This is still a tough and robust bow that delivers tremendous speed and although it weighs a fraction more than the RX-4 it is still light in the hand and, importantly, well-balanced.

It is also powered by the ZTR cam system with the cam coming in two sizes to give draw length options of 25-28 inches and 28-30 inches.

This is the treestand and blind option to use if you prefer to shoot with an aluminum riser bow.

It has been released by the company with an MSRP of $999.99.

Hoyt Carbon RX-4 Ultra

The Ultra version of the RX-4 has been designed with all of the features present in the Alpha mentioned above. The difference is that the Ultra bows are larger bows that are built with a more stable base that will suit longer distance shots from more open locations.

The bow riser is incredibly rigid thanks to the carbon technology with which it is built.

The dimensions of the bow measure 34 inches from axle to axle. The draw length ranges from 27 to 30 and 30 to 32 inches which will suit larger framed shooters very nicely. It also has a slightly longer brace height than the Alpha at 6.75 inches.

The bow has been released by the company with an MSRP of $1749.00.

Hoyt Axius Ultra

Boasting the same dimensions as the RX-4 Ultra, the Axius Ultra is the longer framed bow of the series but is built with an aluminum riser.

The bow is still powered by the ZTR cam series for a smooth and powerful draw and release cycle. The aluminum riser gives it greater weight without being overly heavy.

The bow provides the hunter with all of the features that have been built into the RX-4 along with the forgiving dimensions of a powerful base at a price that is greatly lower.

The company has released the bow with an MSRP of $1249.00.

The technology that has already been developed such as the REDWRX carbon system and the TEC riser provides a solid foundation around which subtle but important improvements are constantly being made.

The introduction of the Alpha range of short framed bows opens up the entire tree stand and blind hunting market very nicely.
