    Default Bowtech center pivot

    What's the actual or supposed advantage of the center pivot on some Bowtechs? I don't see anything on there web site that discusses it.

    Default Ooops! Sorta

    I did dig into Bowtech's website, and right there in front of me was sort of an answer, but I still don't quite understand what it means.

    They are pushing the limits of bow design, trying to find the PERFECT optimal design.........

    I think it adds accuracy but I'm not sure.

    It substantially cuts down on bow noise & vibration compared to your traditional riser designs. Additional accuracy is debateable. I'd say setup, brace height and shooter ability plays more of a role in accuracy than a forked riser could.

    Less than 1/2 the limb is travelling in the upward/downward direction versus a non-center pivot limb design.

    Translation = less vibration = less noise..

    Limb rebound occurs at the working area (thinnest part) of the limbs at the shot. By bracing the limb at the thick mid section and making the limbs so the working areas are near the limb ends, the mid limb rebound vibration is eliminated.

    Exactly. They are super quiet and more efficient.

    I can tell a difference in loudness between my guardian and my allegiance. One has it and one doesnt. I bet any bow I buy from now one will have it.

    I've shot them and was not impressed. I liked the Tribute much better. Just my opinion.

    I owned the tribute and liked it a lot but it didn't shoot near as good as my Guardian.

    Have you shot the 2009 bows?

    why did you get ahold of one? shop owner right. I have a freind (for lack of a better word) who says he shot one from his sponsered budys. He has a history of streaching the truth so wanted to check.

    Its an awesome bow. The draw was smooth, the back wall is solid and there is no hand shock at all. Quiet would be an understatment, you barely hear anything when you shoot it. The Invelvet finish is better this year too, last year, it seemed kind of fuzzy to the touch, the new finish is slick. I'm waiting to see the other models, but I could see myself replacing my trusty Allegiance with the Admiral...and thats saying something.
