Hoyt Carbon RX-4 Turbo Compound Bow



The RX-4 Turbo is a great shooting bow. It has a maneuverable frame with a compact 31-inch axle-to-axle measurement, and an ATA rated 350 feet per second gives shooters a lot of options for arrow weight and kinetic energy versus raw speed for each to choose what makes the most sense for them. For shooters nearing the top end of the 30-inch draw length max, the string angle may start to get uncomfortable for those wanting to keep a straight up and down head position. The cams are pretty big, but they may still require shooters to tip their head into the string for an anchor in the corner of the mouth and tip of the nose. The largest negative is the price. For some reason, the Turbo and the Ultra in the REDWRK lineup get an upgrade charge when compared to the RX-4 Alpha series. Ultimately, this annual $50 price increase is going to hurt Hoyt. There are a ton of great bows in the compact hunting bow market, and Hoyt is no longer creating the carbon riser models much lighter than the aluminum risers, which was a huge reason they marketed the original carbon bows so well back in the day. The $1749 price tag is a ton of money, and it really stinks to take up so much time in a review talking about the cost, but there will be a large number of shooters unable to even consider the RX-4 Turbo because of the cost.
