After assembling, weighing (with scope), and sighting in the bows, we evaluated each for accuracy, speed and energy, noise, handling, fit and finish, trigger pull, cocking effort, and safety. For accuracy, we took the average of two three-shot groups shot from a Lead Sled rest at 25 yards into a Rinehart X-Bow Bag target. We measured speed with a chronograph, using factory-provided bolts and field points, which we also weighed for kinetic-energy calculations. We gauged noise via a tripod-mounted decibel meter, and trigger-pull weights with a Lyman trigger scale. We scored each category on a 1 to 10 scale and doubled the key ones of accuracy, power, and handling—for a total possible score of 110 points. Prices shown are with factory-provided accessories as tested.
