BowTech Bowshas made their mark on the archery industry over the past few years with bows that are not only tight but also quiet and almost shock free.
The Bowtech Guardian was a brand new bow released by Bowtech in 2007. Completely redesigned to increase velocity, cut down noise and improve balance, the Bowtech Guardian was thought by many experts to be the best compound bow made in 2007 by Bowtech and possibly out of all the top line bow manufacturers.
Let us take a close look at the BowTech “Guardian”, a bow that BowTech titles is intended to “cater the ultimate bow hunting experience mixing the values of Center Pivot and CenterTrac binary systems that provide superior comfort and performance”.
Bowtech Guardian has the following specifications: Brace height at 7-1/8 inches; Draw weight at 50, 60 and 70 pounds; # Draw Lengths: 25-30.5 inches; Axle to Axle at 33.75 inches; Mass Weight of 4.2lbs; Speed Mod IBO at 321-329fps; Kinetic Energy at 81.6 fpe and an Adjustable Letoff at 65-80%.
The Bowtech Guardian is made a lot different than any other bow that you will have ever shot. Not only does the bow have parallel limbs, but also in the middle it has a limb type roller, which Bowtech call center pivot/riser technology. This allows the limb to flex and bend in the middle versus all through the limb. The center-limb bracing point, spreads load evenly, ridding of the typical “diving board” effect.
The riser is made from forged Aluminum, which keeps the grain strength of the original alloy. There are no worries about a possible fracture from a inexpensive piece of aluminum here. The handle is a two piece wood handgrip. The Limbs are parallel and used something called Vertical Force Technology. Upon release of an arrow, the force is distributed evenly throughout the limb, which results in lower hand shock and vibration. The cams are the binary cams that Bowtech Bow is famous for. However, the cams on the Guardian are Centertrac Binary cams. This puts equal cable tension on both sides of the cam, placing the bowstring in the center track. This results in zero lean on your cam and greater consistency with your shots.
You can attempt to formalise these statements as you position the Bowtech Guardian to the test.
