Cutting Through the Clutter

There are very few compound bows on today's market that I feel are worthy of considerable praise. Now, this is nothing against the manufacturers of today's products, because they are leaps and bounds better than what we had only a few decades ago. They are shooting faster than the bows that I once shot. They also have smoother shots and have gotten much more accurate.

Many of the bows that are on the market, whether they are recurves or compounds feature similar concepts, with the similar designs, at the similar price points. I do not want to be confused as saying that they are all the same, because that is clearly not the case. They are very similar, so it is usually the one that differentiates itself from the pack that gets the most attention.

Enter the Siege 55 Pound Compound Bow. This compound bow has differentiated itself enough since the day that it was released. It offers the shooter the comfort of consistency, but it gives them a different platform to do it from. This bow definitely marches to the beat of its own drum.

When I first looked at this bow I thought that it looked both minimalistic and aggressive. The cams on this compound bow are large enough so that they can generate 206 feet per second speed. This means that even the animals with the thickest hides in North America wouldn't stand a chance. If you are like me, then speed isn't the number one reason to purchase a bow. It definitely has influence, but durability is what I am really after. After giving this bow an in depth examination I could tell that the limbs are layered so that they will last a long time. These same limbs are held in place by pivoting limb pockets, which means that there is a reinforced (and durable) connection from the riser to the limbs.

This compound bow stands out to me for various reasons:

  • This bow comes in at a very affordable price tag under $100.00. This is almost unheard of in the market for compound bows. This products specifications usually command double/sometimes triple this price, depending on the accessories that you get with it.
  • At a 55 pound draw weight, this bow sits right at the average draw weight for the typical shooter. 70 pounds being the high end, and 20 pounds the low end. This means that there is more potential for this bow to be used among people who are looking to enter the sport of archery or transition from a youth model to something with a little more "umph."
  • The let off of 70% means that these shooters are only required to hold a total of 16.5 pounds of pull when they are at full draw.
  • I had the ability to choose from 1 of 3 different styles. Autumn camouflage for outdoor hunting. Black for someone looking to hunt from the safety of their ground blind, or a black and silver version for someone looking for a good looking bow to take to the archery range.
  • This is the kicker: this bow still shoots 206 feet per second! This is more than enough to hunt ethically and efficiently.

Kudos to Wizard Archery on this one. I will be purchasing a few more for my nieces and nephews as they grow a little bit older.

What Else Would I Need?

If you are just starting out in archery or bow hunting then there are a few things that you would need to purchase to elevate your game to the next level. While the Siege 55 Pound Compound Bow comes with a very good pin sight, there are a few more things that you could purchase to make sure you get the most out of every shot.

Arrows

The arrows that are recommended for this bow are 30'' in length. Hint: A good estimation of arrow length is an inch or two above the draw length. Since the Siege Compound Bow has a draw length of 29'', a 30'' arrow fits perfectly. I would recommended that you go with either a carbon arrow or one that has an aluminum composition because of the force that this bow puts behind its arrows. Carbon arrows will resist bending more, but are typically more expensive. Aluminum arrows are cheaper, but tend to be more malleable.

Arrow Quiver

You need to have something to carry your arrows in, right? To maintain a lightweight profile, I would recommend that you acquire (or fashion one yourself) a side/hip/back quiver. This type of quiver offers the shooter a quick reload as well as a large capacity to hold a substantial amount of arrows.

Armguard

Not everyone needs an arm guard! If you have been shooting before, or you already have a feel for the technique required to fire an arrow then you may not need one. If you are new[er] to shooting a compound bow then I feel that this one is a must. If you do not have proper form, I can guarantee you that the Siege Compound Bow might leave a nice welt on your forearm. I want to be clear that there is nothing wrong with the bow, but poor form typically needs to be corrected on new shooters before they agitate their forearms.

Targets

Practice makes perfect. Before you take the Siege 55 Pound Compound Bow out to the hunt or to the competition. We always recommend that you practice your shot. You can get good practice from a traditional paper target or you could get a padded foam target If you plan on taking on the challenges that this sport has to offer.

5 Stars!
