Compound Bow Comparisons 2010

Compound Bow Comparisons 2010
With the new compound bows out, it is interesting to compare the older bows to them. So here are some old compound bow comparisons for 2010 model bows below in a table.

Here you will find specifications for some of the old popular compound bow brands, like PSE, Bear Archery, Mathews and Hoyt Archery.

(For a list of the new 2021 compound bows, click on Compound Bow Comparison 2021.)

The archive table lists the IBO speeds, brace height, mass weight and draw weight and draw length of the bows at the time.

The bow comparison and specification charts are useful if you find some old compounds for sale. As you have a manufacturers brace height recommendations. (Hopefully you will find a bargain at a garage sale, or eBay for a great price.) Which you probably would have to replace the cables and bowstring.

Interestingly, I have noticed the mass weight of the older bows have a similar weight of the new 2020 and 2021 new bows. So the physical weight hasn’t changed too much in ten years or so with materials and manufacturing. Mass weight does help you hold on target better to a certain extent, absorb the bow shock and silence the bow. I guess it is a tradeoff for the weight and there are pros and cons of each.

The IBO speeds are generally faster with the majority of modern bows, but not by much.

Note: The PSE X – Force Omen was the fastest bow in the world at the time in 2010. It had an IBO speed of a blistering fast speed of up to 366 feet per second. (I actually owned one at it was fast, I’m not sure if I put it on the Chrono, but it was a speed demon. It had very aggressive cams and a very narrow valley. I also had the Mathews Monster and Bear Attack, these were fast bows as well and shot nicely.)

The junior and youth compound bows of the modern versions are more adjustable in both draw length and draw weight compared to the older versions.


If you are after a modern widely adjustable bow that will suit from youth to adult, check out the Diamond Infinite Bow. Click on the Amazon link for the latest price. (Affiliate link, modern version of the bow pictured above.)

Another good bow that is widely adjustable is the Bear Archery Legit, which I recently done a bow review. For more information Bear Legit Compound Bow Review.

With some of these older bows listed, for a lot of them you have to use a bow press. Or order the cam specific draw length. A big advantage with a lot of new bows is that you don’t need a bow press to change the draw length.

We hope you find the old bow comparisons chart useful. (Click here for Compound bow comparisons for 2011.)

*Note – IBO fps speeds are taken from the archery bow manufactures specifications and may not be typical.  IBO speed ratings are based on a 70-pound draw weight, 30-inch draw length and an arrow that weighs 350 grains. Bow and arrow speed can be affected by a number of factors such as: arrows, conditions and measuring instruments, accessories on the bowstring such as peep sights, bow silencers, and other factors on the bow.
