More 2013 bows – This time from Prime and Quest

I’m going to post these together because Prime and Quest are both owned by G5 Outdoors, a Michigan-based archery company that puts out very high quality stuff. You’d be hard-pressed to not be impressed with the offerings from these lines this season!

2013 Prime Impact

G5® Outdoors, the leading manufacturer in premium archery equipment and design introduces two new models to their popular Prime TM bow line for 2013 – the “Impact” and “Defy”.

“The new and improved PrimeTM bows will once again raise the bar in compound bow performance,” stated President Matt Grace. “We are thrilled with the ingenuity our engineers and designers have shown in improving the PrimeTM Bow series.”

The new Impact model turns heads with its new PCX Cam, forged 7000 series riser and 35” Axle to Axle length.  In addition, with its adjustable grip, the Impact is perfect for both tournament shooters and hunters alike.

2013 Prime Defy

The Defy – packs the new features found in the Impact into a compact  31” axle to axle bow perfect for aggressive hunters that demand superior performance and flexibility in their equipment.  Defy all odds and conditions with the new Prime Defy

Both bows feature G5’s Exlcusive  Parallel Cam Technology which makes CAM LEAN a problem of the past, as this industry leading design balances the load equally on each side of the cable resulting in virtually no CAM LEAN, reduced horizontal nock travel, and reduced limb fatigue. In addition to the Parallel Cam Design, the Prime line of bows offers a long list of features:

  • Forged 7000 Series
    • This durable design helps to increase riser stiffness and reduce shooter’s hand shock.
  • C-1 Laminated Limbs
    • These limbs utilize a cross weight design to significantly reduce torsional stresses in the limb resulting in improved consistency and accuracy
  • GoreTM  Fiber String & Cables
    • This proprietary string material is a blend of Gore TM performance fibers and BCYTM 452X.
    • The Marriage of these two industry leading technologies results in a superior string with less vibration, a reduction in noise, and increased durability.
  • TI-Glide Titanium Flexing Cable System
    • The Prime’s Flexible Titanium cable guard system reduces cam lean by 25% by reducing side load on the cables during draw.  In conjunction with the Parallel Cam Design, cam lean is virtually eliminated.
  • Anti-Torque Removable Grip
  • Shield Grip
    • First of its kind in the industry, made of G10 material that repels water, odors or any other unwanted element.  It stays dry and comfortable in the hand no matter the conditions.
