Ho, Ho, Ho, Merry Christmas, everyone. If you happen to find yourself out hunting for a new bow this holiday season, might I make one suggestion?

Make sure you checkout G5's new PRIME line of bows, its PRIME time baby. The new line bows from G5 Outdoors, the PRIME series, are off the charts. G5 entered the bow game a few years ago with the release of its Quest line, and they are awesome in their own right. I bought one the first year they came out and it rocks. Now G5 is upping the ante by releasing a new premium line of bows called the Prime. Due yourself and your future hunts a favor, and go out and shoot this bow, you will not be disappointed. With speeds in the 330's and its new parallel limb design, you can't go wrong with the new Prime series.

With its proprietary and exclusive Parallel Cam Technology, this new line of premiums bows virtually eliminates CAM LEAN, making the bows more forgiving and more accurate at greater distances. Who doesn't want to have the ability to reach out to 50 or 60 yards and bring down a goat or a sheep on a mountain side? Or how about having the ability to spot and stalk world class hogs and drop one in his tracks from over half a football field away. Do you shoot in competitions? Ever get a little nervous about that 70 yard shot. With the Prime, forget about it, your arrow will be dead on.

“The new Prime Bows will raise the bar in compound bow performance.” Stated President Matt Grace. “We are thrilled with the ingenuity our engineers and designers have shown in developing a product that effectively addresses one of the nagging problems in current bow designs.”

The Parallel Cam Technology looks to make CAM LEAN a problem of the past as the new design balances the load equally on each side of the cable resulting in practically no CAM LEAN, reduced horizontal nock travel, and reduced limb fatigue. In addition to the Parallel Cam Design, the new Prime series offers a long list of unique features that make the bow truly one of a kind:

Forged 7000 Series
•T6 Aluminum Riser is twice as strong as traditional 6061 T6 aluminum risers. This durable design helps to increase riser stiffness and reduce shooter's hand shock.

C-1 Laminated Limbs
•These limbs utilize a cross weft design to significantly reduce torsional stresses in the limb resulting in improved consistency and accuracy

GoreTM Fiber String & Cables
•This proprietary string material is a blend of Gore TM performance fibers and BCYTM 452X.

•The Marriage of these two industry leading technologies results in a superior string with less vibration, a reduction in noise, and increased durability.
TI-Glide Titanium Flexing Cable System

•The Prime's Flexible Titanium cable guard system reduces cam lean by 25% by reducing side load on the cables during draw. In conjunction with the Parallel Cam Design, cam lean is virtually eliminated.

Shield Grip
•First of its kind in the industry, made of G10 material that repels water, odors or any other unwanted element. It stays dry and comfortable in the hand no matter the conditions.

Available in Optifade TM Forest, Optifade TM Open Country , Realtree AP HD
TM or Black
•Superior patterns for superior concealment

Finally, Prime seeks to deliver the highest level of Quality Assurance in the Bow Industry. Every Prime bow is fully assembled and tuned before it leaves G5. G5 then takes the extra effort of cycling every bow 100 times on an automated cycling machine, and then super tunes the bow again. This process ensures that strings are properly stretched, and limbs and limb pockets have properly settled - eliminating the need to retune your bow after your first 100 shots.

If you have a few minutes, sit down and watch the promotional video that G5 has put out. It will get you in the mood to go bow shopping. http://g5prime.com/.

This bow is a winner and gets my 5 out of 5 arrow rating. Not only does this bow look as good as it functions, it just screams hunt.
