Bowtech Invasion CPX Review

January 27, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 189

One of the benefits of being in the hunting industry is testing out new equipment ever year and one of my new favorites is Bowtech's New Invasion CPX. After shooting Bowtech's Destroyer 350 last year and loving the overall balance and speed of the bow I wasn't exactly sure that I wanted to switch bows for the season, but that was before I was able to shoot the Invasion for the first time.

Every manufacture clams that there bow is the fastest, smoothest and most accurate and what I have always found is that there are trade offs that you must inherently except. For Speed you must except more hand shock and a bow that is more "touchy" to shoot. For overall shoot ability you must sacrifice speed and so on. For most of us it is finding the bow that meets are needs and shooting preferences the best and I still believe that a person should bow that feels the best to them overall.

But I believe that the Invasion may be the best balance between speed and shootablity of any bow I have ever held. With an IBO of 343fps the invasion is blazing fast, but the real shock when you shoot the Invasion for the first time. There is a total absence of almost any hand shock. With almost no hand shock The invasion is a joy to shoot but the real fun starts as soon as you realize how accurate this bow is. Within minutes of sighting in my Spot Hogg I was breaking tees at 20 yards and my down range groups even out to 70 yards were unreal.

Now after spending an entire season behind the Invasion and my Colorado deer season is behind me I can only continue to say great things about this bow. When fully set up with Easton Flatline 400's and 100 broadheads is was still cranking out arrows at 322 fps (29in draw") turning my 20 yard pin into an anything under 35 yard pin. You may not believe that speed is that important in a hunting bow but out west where shots happen fast and you may not always be able to use your range finder the super flat trajectory of the Invasion gives you a lot of forgiveness in judging yardages. Turning missed or marginal shots into successful hunts.

I don't know what Bowtech will be able to come out with next year but it is going to be hard to switch from my CPX.
