The folks at Renegade Archery deserve a bear hug for their Trophy R.A.C. The upstart company offers this high-performance bow at a reasonable price, then backs it with a lifetime warranty. The Trophy R.A.C. features a machined-aluminum riser that keeps bow weight down to 3.4 pounds, single-cam technology, draw weights of 40 to 70 pounds, and a choice of 65 or 80 percent let-off. Hunters will appreciate the 71.4-inch brace height, which pardons imperfections in shooting form that a touchier bow would scream at. Priced at $399, from Renegade Archery Co., Dept. FS, 6316 Center Rd., Sturgeon Bay, WI 54235; 888-350-2697.
