The Bowtech BT-X 31 compound bow is part of a duo of flagship bows released by the company for the 2016 season, the other being the BT-X 28. This is the slightly larger and more powerful bow of the pair and will suit the larger framed shooter who shoots from the ground. The bow is a speed bow that has been built with a raft of features to provide plenty of power along with outstanding comfort and customization.

As the name of the bow suggests the maximum draw length of the bow is 31 inches. With a quite compact axle to axle frame, the bow represents a tremendously powerful shooter in a small package.

Featuring the Bowtech Overdrive Binary Cams for superior tuning and consistency it is an even more adjustable system thanks to the inclusion of the Micro Sync Dial. This enables the shooter to precisely tune the bow.

The bow also uses the new innovation from the 2015 season, the PowerShift Technology. This provides the shooter an amazing amount of versatility. By moving a PowerDisc it is possible to customise the shooting experience, giving you the option of shooting in Classic setting, Comfort setting or Performance setting. In effect, you’re getting three bows in one.

The BT-X has been designed with the FLX-Guard cable-containment system to reduce torque and increased accuracy and speed capabilities are made possible through the Center Pivot Extreme technology.

Carbon Core Limbs means that the bow has durability and increased efficiencies over other bows in its class.

The bow is available in Kryptek Highlander, Kryptek Typhoon, Black Ops, Mossy Oak Break-Up Country or Realtree Xtra Green finishes. For a full list of features and bow specs you can find them further down the page.

What they're saying in the forums about the BowTech BT-X 31

While the brace heights are around 6".........looking at the riser geometry on this bow will show you that it has nearly no reflex in the riser design. You can't see this at face value, but the limb pockets are also 1/4" wider. The CPX design is a bit longer on this one as well which is what contributes to the nearly zero reflex riser design.
