It was too cold to shoot fish at this writing, so three fellow bowfishing nuts and I tested each bow by shooting at sticks, sunken bottles, and whatever else we could see floating down the river. Indoors, at Hinton Archery in Murray, Ky., we set each bow at 40 pounds, drew to 28 inches, and shot the same fiberglass fish arrow through a chronograph to test for speed. All but the Cajun were equipped with AMS Retriever Pro reels and roller rests. The Cajun package had a factory-provided Hybrid Reel and Fishing Biscuit rest. --W.B.
