The Hoyt Carbon Spyder ZT 34 compound bow is the longer framed bow that once again uses the winning features of the Carbon Spyder and includes a smoother shot with a Zero Torque Cable Guide. The outstanding benefits that come with the carbon riser, which Hoyt has a lot of experience with over the years, strength coupled with light weight, is paired up with the stable platform of the longer 34 inch axle to axle length. This is the slightly longer counterpart to the other flagship bow for 2015, the Carbon Spyder ZT 30.
The bow has been fitted with the Z5 cam system again, the same cam system that was used in the previous season’s Carbon Spyder bows. The Z5 cam system provides a smooth draw cycle for better performance. The bow is a little more forgiving than previously with a slightly longer brace height of 6.75 inches.
The limbs of the Carbon Spyder 34 continue to be the five layered laminated limbs that ensure the most powerful possible. The limbs are pre-stressed and contoured and this gives them strength through the entire limb rather than just in the stress points. These split beyond parallel limbs are complemented by the Pro-Lock limb pockets which is a zero tolerance system which finds them firmly locked into place.
The bow offers a great many options when it comes to the draw weight ranges from 30-80 pounds giving you 50 pounds of adjustability. Limb dampening functionality is maintained with the AirShox Limb Dampening System in place once again to remove noise and vibration.
It is still the riser that holds the interest and the Helical Flex Tune Carbon riser adds stiffness to the bow through its core. It means the repeatability of the bow is far greater and vibration is deadened to the point where it is virtually non-existent. The hollow carbon tubes that comprise the riser means that there are incredible weight savings without losing any strength.
The point of difference of the Carbon Spyder ZT over the previous models is the inclusion of the Zero Torque Cable Guard System which is added to neutralize unwanted torque. This is a unique system that will improve accuracy and consistency.
The bow has been made available in a range of different finishes including Realtree Xtra, Realtree Max-1, Black Out, American Heritage, Realtree Snow and Realtree Pink.

What they are saying in the forums about the Hoyt Carbon Spyder ZT 34
It's light. Which make is great for spot and stalk. The carbon doesn't get near as cold as the aluminum risers. Which is great for long cold sits...Thats a win win in my book...They also draw smooth, vibe free and hold great. I think they are worth the cost.
