While Prime has been a solid contender in the last few years in our annual bow test, we've always felt they were a step or two away from greatness. Their 2015 flagship model, the Rival, may be just the boost they need to step in to the Big Time. It's a smartly designed, high-performance bow that Hurteau and I truly enjoyed shooting. What's more, it totally nailed two big trends at this year's ATA show; a longer axle-axle (35") and impressive speed (340 fps). It's not easy to combine those qualities, but Prime appears to have pulled it off with the Rival.
