That is what the Shoot Tech Systems Raptor Advance Compound Bow represents.
- FPS 410 - 485 (Depends on different ammo weight.)
- Adjustable Draw Weight 40 – 80 lbs
- Adjustable Let Off 60-80%
- Axle-To-Axle Length 32"
- Mass weight 4.8 lbs
- Brace height 7"
- Doubles as a giant slingshot. What????
I am not saying I am for or against this style of compound bow. I haven't shot it. I don't know how well it shoots.
But from a design perspective, whoever engineered this clearly wanted to completely change how a compound bow is supposed to work and threw out all the previous designs to make something completely new and different.
If someone brought me this bow and asked me to repair it I would need to be careful about where to even start, depending on what the exact problem was. It would not be your standard "Oh can you fix my compound bow?" situation. Even if it was a minor repair issue I would be very fascinated to get a look at the inner workings of this bow's unusual design.
Would it be fun to repair? Maybe.
Would it be interesting? Definitely.
According to reviews the bow provides a buttery smooth draw cycle, but with blistering speeds that put even high end crossbows to shame. Clearly STS should be taking this tech and building a crossbow version.
Except they do make a crossbow apparently, but it doesn't look anything like the compound bow. More insanity. Below, the STS Raptor 32 Tactical.
Of course they had to put the word "Tactical" in the name. You almost wonder if they did that as a joke. Who is going to buy this???
