I lied – there were so many incredible products for 2009, that I just couldn’t narrow it down to 10 – so, I give you instead – the top 20 best archery products for 2009!
Wait until you see the #1 best archery product for 2009! You’re gonna love it! But no cheating! The suspense will be worth it – I promise!
Click on any of the product’s links to check out an image and detailed description if available. We are still awaiting a few of the product’s images and descriptions, but should have them shortly, so check back.
So, let’s get started!
#20: MORRELL’S BONE COLLECTOR MLT-1 TARGET BAG
Bigger and badder than all Morrell’s previous targets created for Michael Waddell’s new show, “The Bone Collector”. This is Michael Waddell’s signature series super heavy–duty, arrow stopping, bad–to–the–bone field point target.
#19: EXTREME ARCHERY’S BONE COLLECTOR SERIES SIGHTS
Michael Waddell’s signature series bow sights are designed by the best – and built by the best. Their new pin has a supported hoop to armorize it from twigs and obstructions to eliminate breakdowns.
#18: OUTDOOR EDGE SWINGBLAZE HUNTING KNIFE
The Swing Blade was introducted last year as the fastest field dressing knife ever created. This year it’s back and better than ever as the SWINGBLAZE with the case being fluorescent orange so as not to lose your most important game care piece of equipment. This is a great Father’s Day gift.
#17: MAGNUS BULLHEAD TURKEY BROADHEAD
The 2008 Bullhead Broadhead already had serious knock–down power. The 2009 Bullhead Broadhead is even better because of its snap–on–sheath which not only protects you, but your blades with an adaptor that fits into any quiver.
#16: EASTON’S LIGHTED TRACER NOCK
Again, not a new product, but this year even better! Easton now offers the Lighted Tracer Nock in green that is so–so cool! The lighted nock will track the path of your arrow with a stream of light that will easily aid with shot placement identification on your target as well as arrow recovery. This must–have product will certainly reduce your cost of having to replace lost arrows. Brilliant! In 2008, Easton had more demand than supply – this year, they appear to be ready.
#15: LIMBSAVER SVL X–COIL CAMO STABILIZER
If you loved the S–Coil, wait till you experience the X–COIL! It’s lighter weight than the S–Coil with 30% more vibration dampening ability at an affordable price.
#14: SPOT HOGG’S BOSS HOGG SIGHT
Trust me when I say – you’ve never seen a single pin quit like this. The Boss Hogg Sight is rock solid tough, with precision adjustment capabilities resulting in unmatched yardage settings. Spot Hogg’s Boss Hogg Sight is the “Rolex” of single pin sights. Just like a Rolex – it’s not for everyone. Very typical of Spot Hogg to build the finest most precise “anything–archery” like no other can.
#13: PRIMOS THE TRUTH 12 BIG BULLS DVD
Primos continues to bring you the best and most unbeatable elk action delivered Primos style. Available for purchase approximately February 1st.
#12: G5’S MONTEC CS 100 GRAIN BROADHEAD
This top selling broadhead just got even better! The carbon steel is now 25% sharper straight out of the package. The CS is easier to sharpen and maintain its sharpness longer.
#11: BLACK GOLD’S EASY GLIDER SINGLE PIN SIGHT
Black Gold gives a really cool twist on single pin sights. The swinging activator lever is internal rather than external enabling your quiver to mount tighter to your bow without needing spacers. The armored pin includes their proprietary photo-chromatic light adjusting technology. Black Gold also offers unconditional life–time warranty you can count on.
#10: RIPCORD’S CAMO DROP–AWAY ARROW REST
Keith and Don have managed to take their already good rest to make it a GREAT rest! The new and improved 2009 Ripcord Drop–Away Rest now has even more adjustment with faster drop–time! This arrow rest will be the #1 drop–away for 2009!
#9: TROPHY RIDGE’S ALPHA V5 BOW SIGHT
TROPHY RIDGE’S DROP SLIDE ARROW REST
Remember Trophy Ridge? Not like this you haven’t – Trophy Ridge’s engineers have been working on this new line for 2 1/2 years in order to reintroduce to you true innovation for in–line pin technology sights that are fully machined aluminum along with the vertically–dropping drop–slide arrow rest with zero play and glossy smooth mechanics.
#8: BLACK’S CREEK IMPROVED ALASKAN PACK and NEW RIGG–IT PACK
The new and improved Alaskan Hunting Pack – as awesome as it was – has been totally reconstructed with a zipper detachment system separating the pack body from the meat packing frame enabling you to now pack out your meat at the same time as your gear.
The Rigg–Itt Hunting Pack has two new bags to attach to the awesome frame (a day pack and fanny pack) that can be attached separately or combined.
#7: TRU BALLS’ AXCEL ARMORTECH SIGHT
Tru Balls’ first attempt at building a hunting sight is a “home run”! With the armortech and steel encased fiber optic pins – broken fibers are now the thing of the past! Their pin adjustment system is both easy AND precise.
#6: SCOTT RELEASES’ RHINO XT RELEASE AID
Coming from a long family of rhinos and silverhorns comes the Rhino XT with a spring return hook (no more re-cocking), with trigger tension and travel adjustment screws. Shoot it to believe it!
#5: PSE’S X FORCE GX & X FORCE OMEN UF COMPOUND BOW
Last year, the X Force Series shocked many. This year, they’ve added smoother cams with 80% let–off, a string suppressor, and America’s Best Bowstrings as factory equipment. Not to be out done by Mathews, the Omen jumps to 366 fps (feet per second) for those desiring pure adrenaline!
#4: HOYT’S ALPHAMAX SERIES COMPOUND BOWS
What could Hoyt possible do to top last years Katera? Sleeker, stream line, ultra light risers coming in under 4 pounds total bow weight with modular adjusting cams producing 320 plus fps. That’s what…..
#3: MATHEWS MONSTER SERIES – MATHEWS REEZEN – MISSION BY MATHEWS MENACE COMPOUND BOWS
Mathews broke all the rules with their new McPherson Series Monster Bow by their smoothness coupled with unprecedented speeds for Mathews.
The Reezen is the fastest single cam compound bow ever produced, yet smoother than all its predecessors.
The Mathews By Mission Menace Compound Bow adjusts from 11 – 50 lbs. and 17 – 30 inches draw length all in one bow to accommodate any youth, lady, or junior archer.
#2: EPEK’S X–C3 BROADHEAD
Tired of buying practice blades or being afraid to shoot your expandables? The X–C3 broadhead can be adjusted to prevent the blades from opening with one simple turn of a screw enabling you to sight in your broadheads without dulling the blades, or tearing up your target! Turn the screw again to release the blades – and your ready to hunt! No more practice blades! Brilliant!
This is Big Big Big!!! At the ATA Show, Joel and I witnessed many incredible performance jumps in many bow models ranging from 10 – 60 feet per second! We will be personally testing this product to substantiate what you are about to discover. If this product proves to do as it alleges – then hold on to your long johns – it will be revolutionary to archery!
Today’s high efficient bows are producing record speeds enabling archers a signifigant margin of error for yardage estimation. Currently one sight pin covers ranges 0 – 20 yards – The Bowturbow alledgedly will expand one sight pin coverage from 0 – 40 yards “the average hunting distance”. In otherwords, like a rifle, aim and shoot using one sight pin!
This is what the Archery World has been waiting for!

Lower your bow poundage and shoot the same speed.
