2015 Prime Ion Review
It hasn’t taken Prime long to be considered one of the top bow makers on the market, and with new models like the 2015 Prime Ion, it’s safe to say there are no signs of slowing down. The all-new Prime Ion features a lot of the same great qualities as its older brother from 2014, the Prime Alloy (also available for 2015). The 2015 Prime Ion measures an ideal 31” axle-to-axle, which makes it a great choice for both blind and treestand hunters. It’s also a 7.25” brace height bow for minimal hand vibration and has one of the best back walls in the business from a shooting standpoint. What really makes this bow standout for 2015 are more forgiving let-off and valley attributes, which makes the bow extremely easy to hold at full draw. Look for the new Ion at The Ree...

The crossbow market has exploded just in the last few years alone and all of us here at The Reel Shot could not be more excited. One model in particular that has been generating a lot of buzz at the 2015 ATA show is the all-new 2015 Horton Storm RDX. With 165 lb draw weight and only weighing 7.7 lbs, the storm RDX is definitely a model to keep and eye on. Perhaps one of the quietest and most compact crossbows on the market, the Strom RDX is packed with tons of hunting features. This crossbow is capable of zinging bolts at a blistering 370 FPS and packs a punch with 122 FP KE (foot-pound kinetic energy). What makes the 2015 Horton Strom RDX so unique is its reverse limb-design.

2015 APA Archery Bow Review
APA Archery immediately caught our eye at the 2015 ATA show. The first thing that anyone will notice is the unique riser design that features a “claw-shape” curving off of the top limb pocket. Despite what most people may think, “the claw” isn’t a police-issued glass breaker, but rather it’s a built in bow hanger. Perfect for hanging your bow on limb in the stand, or a fence that you may be hunting off of, this little design means you can avoid setting you bow on the ground where dirt and mud can find its way into your cams.
In the 2015 APA Archery bow review we also learned that every APA bow is constructed entirely of aluminum, so they are durable and lightweight. These bows also feature a built in carbine knife sharpener, broadhead tightening tool, arrow nock t...
