Bowtech Assassin Review 2012




What do you think about this video?

Jacob peters: And rebelnford is incorrect and frankly kind of ignorant. Drop away is the only rest to shoot. The whole idea behind a drop away is THEY NEVER TOUCH YOUR FLETCHING. As upposed to a whisker biscuit which is notorious for destroying fletchings overtime. Look up the trophy ridge revolution. A 50 dollar full containment drop away. Deffinately the best bang for your buck.

Jacob peters: Man 70 is s little much for you. Its important not to out bow your self. Speed is not that important that you should sacrafice comfort you should be able to stand flat footed and draw your bow straight back with no problem without having to throw your bow up and yank it back. Turning your bow down to about a 28 inch draw and 63 pounds or so will make a very obvious gain in your groups. 30 inch draw is way long unless you're about 6'3" or have extremely long arms. 

MSbowhunter96: QAD ULTRA HUNTER its like 69 buck by far best value i have one on my 2013 bowtech experience

Froggies505: Loud as hell. Lol.

Dylan Padgett: woo that thing looks smooth on the drawback and quiet, i was just looking at the same one at a local shop yesterday

Tiffany Saucier: Okay, Iv'e decided to get this bow weeks before I saw this video. I haven't got it yet, but it has a lifetime warranty on it? That's great!

Janfodne: Check and see if the nocks are glued in place. If they aren't give them a little twist so that the vanes are alined within the spaces between the brushes of the arrow rest. That should give the arrows some extra durability towards that kind of rest. And for gods sake don't use FOBs with that kind of rest. It'll mess things up quite a bit. An uncontrollable carbon shaft down range is not be take lightly. Trust me, I've done it.

Gene K: Nice video. Looking for one of these toys. Will it work for beginner? My nephew got the same one He's happy with it and I wanna get the same

xxxthaiguyxxx: Yep sure does just be sure to register it on bowtechs website. The Bow string has a waranty on it too but I am unsure how long it is.

Sean Chastain: Good review

Jeramy Michael: Hey thanks for the video.

RebelnFord: dont get a drop away and id get rid of that hostage if u want better accuracy get a wisker buisket best rest it wont mess with your fletchings like drop aways and hostage rests might have to get it paper tuned but there the best for the money

xxxthaiguyxxx: Yeah in this video I had it set at 70 lbs but I have backed it down to 65 since then to correct some arrow flight issues I was having, hopefully I can get some stiffer arrows soon I can go back up to 70. But still really pleased with it. Good Luck

Chris Fokjohn: Great work on that!!!

DL9619: what are the sight pins set at from the factorie great vid

xxxthaiguyxxx: They roughly 20 30 40 50. Once I got the 20 yard pin set the others were pretty good.

WZW1982: Man how tall are you? You make that thing look like a kids bow haha

blackmamba011000: shoould've got a hoyt maxxis 31

Hitman Overrated: Good video mate :) But if you ever will do an outdoor vid again you should try get some small walls or a case, if you know what I mean? - because i heard alot wind passing through the camara. But it was a good video overall :)

cccmaster: Damn man you draw that bow like its nothing lol. Thinking about buying one ;)

Kenny Klodnicki: nice i was looking @ this

john lee: i have the same bow in black tho..i like it how when you pull it back...it kinda locks in so you can hold it there for while..amazing bow

Acg3996: Hey nice video, but here's a tip: learn the basics of archery with a full containment until you can hold good groups, then switch to a drop away. Full capture rests show any flaw in shooting form forcing you to fix then in order to shoot better. Once flaws are fixed, then switch over!

xxxthaiguyxxx: Yeah I have droped it to 65 lbs since this video. It helped a ton with my accuracy, and the arrow flight, I dont think the arrows were stiff enough to handle 70lbs. Thanks for the feedback.

enriquewilliamsteeny: Top of the line.. I think it kinda depends on what your after.. Seems to me as if they can't make a bow with out giving up something. Example there might be a fast bow but not good let off or terrible draw cycle but not great speed ext. kinda depends in what's more important to you and how you hunt. Good video though! And as soon as I sell my "ancient" bowtech Tacoma I'm getting one of these! Refuse to follow!

Tiffany Saucier: Thank you much!! (:

xxxthaiguyxxx: I have switched to a QAD drop away, that seems to have cured most of my flight problems, I am shooting much tighter groups now. Just wish I would of switched earlier.

TheBowhunter360: great video, about that hostage though, u might have to adjust the nocks so the fletchings do not come in contact with the rest, through my experience i have shot many different rests and in all honesty the cheepest one (which was the hostage) was the best but thats just in my opinion, great bow definitly one of my favorites and congrats on your new hobby

xxxthaiguyxxx: Yeah it has like a 80 percent let off which is awesome. I wanted the black but the shop I got it from diddnt have one

Hob0Magnet: Bowtech make the best bows, good choice!

mike smith: You are right> the arrow rest is junk as brushes wear fast, I never had it tear my fletchings though......I did end up replacing the rest. The only real problem I had with my 2012 Assassin is when you draw down too fast on the bow the string can easily jumped your cam as it did to me once. The problem is the side walls on the cam are not deep enough, so be careful when drawing down on your bow....... do it very slowly (drawing down on it). Other then that I really like the bow for the money.

enriquewilliamsteeny: *tomkat

chevyman5134: i know that you are new to archery so here is a tip i notice as soon as you pulled your bow back the the weight is up to much for you i use to shoot at 70lbs on my mathews bow but i have learned that you should be able to hold the bow in the position as if you are aiming to shoot and pull it back with ease! Speed is not everything i would rather have a more accurate shot than a fast shot! what is speed if your not accurate? Keep it up and read up on archery. God Bless!

dillpicklenigga: Tip: Don't keep the bow pulled back for such a long time, Even with the let off its still holding 70 pounds. Shoot as soon as you line the sight with target.

bthacker07: Congrats on the new bow...For the price the Assassin is definitely one of the best on the market.Good luck to you.

xxxthaiguyxxx: No problem

assassinflight: Enjoy, its a super bow, a good solid decision.

Bob Jankins: try holding your bow with your index and thumb itll make it so you dont torgue it and make you more accurate

andrew depalma: loosen up ur grip it will help ur shaking

xxxthaiguyxxx: Yeah hoyts are nice bows. They were just a little to pricey for me. This one fits my needs for now.

N8tivePatriot565: which is the top of the line bowtech bow?

Shaun Armin: Bad review!!! Very brief... It's hitting your fletching probably because you didn't turn the knocks! Work on your shooting form and stop punching the trigger
