"We are very honored to have The General distinguished as the 'Best of the Best'. Innovation, quality and performance are values we strive for with every model we produce," says BowTech's president and CEO, John Strasheim.
Products were divided into 11 major categories. Editors in charge of each category assembled expert test panels, gathered gear from manufacturers and chose testing locations. They evaluated hundreds of gear items and put all contenders through rigorous tests to see what truly stood out as the best of the best.
According to Field & Stream, "The General flung arrows accurately, consistently and with adequate speed."
Each bow tested was set up with a capture rest, a string nock and a draw weight of 70 pounds with a 29-inch draw length. Testers measured arrow speed through a chronograph and bow noise with a decibel meter. Next, they shot the bows and rated them from 1(low) to 10(high) on draw cycle, back wall, balance, hand shock (vibration) and overall performance.
The judges were unanimous that felt recoil was almost nonexistent and declared The General, "Completely dead at the release...for folks who love to shoot a great-feeling bow, there's nothing better."
