Bowhunters Descend on Indianapolis for ATA Show

The bowhunting world is descending on the great city of Indianapolis this week for the 2011 Archery Trade Association show. While I wasn't able to make it this year, my good friends Bob Robb and Jeff Johnston are on the floor as we speak.

Check out a quick update from Jeff sent early this morning:

Today my office is downtown Indianapolis at the 2011 Archery Trade Association's annual show. I'm checking out the latest and greatest archery products, and I'll report back here with a few updates on what I find. Meanwhile, check out this video of The Bone Collector's own Michael Waddell and his son Mason as they joined country star Rhett Akins on stage to kick off the show. I think Mason has a future in rock n roll!

Mr. Robb checked in shortly after with a few new bows he's already gotten his hands on. He writes: 

BowTech Assassin
BowTech has established a reputation as a very innovative bow maker, and with the Assassin they offer what they call a R.A.K. (Ready, Aim, Kill) bow. It comes complete with a complete complement of high-quality accessories, including 4-pin TruGlo Apex bow sight, one-piece 5-arrow bow quiver, Octane Hostage XL arrow rest, 4-inch stabilizer, Alloy Peep sight and Fura-Fix string dampening components. Also included are other BowTech innovations, including the company’s signature Binary Cam System with rotating draw length modules. It has a 7-inch brace height and IBO speed rating is 333 fps. Best of all, the entire thing carries a suggested retail price of $649. How can you beat that?
Darton Archery DS 3800
DS here stands for DualSync, a unique Darton cam design that includes a second let-out groove on each cam that anchors the opposite end of each power cable instead of anchoring it to the axle. This year’s model also has slightly deepened grooves on the cams as well as a fresh design on the PTR (Progressive Torque Reduction) cable guard. The PTR is really a curved rod that brings the cables back to the centerline of the bow during the draw cycle, which helps greatly to reduce limb torque -- making the bow more “shootable.” You can adjust the draw length between 25-31 inches without a bow press. The bow is 34-inches axle-to-axle, and has a 6-inch brace height. IBO speed rating is 345 fps.
