Bass Pro Shops Unveils New Line of Heavy Duty Bowfishing Gear

Bass Pro Shops has unveiled Archenemy, its new line of heavy duty bowfishing gear. This brand new line of bowfishing equipment is for those new to the sport as well as those who have already discovered the thrills of arrowing carp, gar and other rough fish. Like bowhunting, getting the right bow and outfitting it with the accessories need is the name of the game. The Archenemy Bow is a rugged, high-energy compound bow that measures 32-inches axle-to-axle. Its compact size makes it comfortable and easily maneuvered. It has a draw length of up to 30-inches to fit many shooters, and it has an incredibly smooth draw cycle and constant draw weight, making it optimal for snap shooting. Plus, the Archenemy bow looks really cool, too. The bow package comes ready to hit the water with an Archenemy Rapid Fire Arrow Rest, Archenemy Nemesis Reel, Archenemy Reel Seat, Archenemy Tournament Series Arrow, and Archenemy Tournament Series braided 200-lb. test line. One can get all this for $379.99. Available separately is the Archenemy Nemesis Reel. The Nemesis has a uni body design for strength and four stainless-steel bearings to keep it running smooth. The reel uses new SSC Technology that super-sizes the components for long life. The Archenemy Nemesis reel features a 33-lb. drag with low 2.7:1 low gear ratio for increased power, and it comes spooled with Archenemy braided 200-lb. test line. It is available for $49.99. The Archenemy Tournament Series braided line is also available separately. Like the top braided fishing lines available, the Archenemy line has a 0.030-inch diameter for improved arrow speed and reduced drag. The line comes in 100-foot spools and is rated to 200 pounds. One can choose between lime green or white. Each spool will only sets back $9.99. The arrows used in bowfishing are poles apart from those used for deer hunting. The Archenemy Tournament Series arrow is perfect for the job. They are made of thick 5/16-inch fiberglass with a precision tip that is designed to penetrate the thickest gar scales. The tip is barbed to keep the arrow in the fish upon impact. It is available with or without an AMS slide that helps prevent snapback. Each arrow costs $9.99 or $14.99 with the slide.

Bass Pro Shops Launches Blackout Intrigue Compound Bow Package

Bass Pro Shops announced that the company has launched BlackOut Intrigue Compound Bow Package. Designed for archers with a smaller frame, the BlackOut Intrigue can be set up for a wide range of shooters, with draw lengths from 23 to 30 inches, and draw weights from 20 to 70 pounds. Both settings can be easily changed to adapt the bow to growing skills or growing archers. It's fast too; capable of speeds up to 313 fps. The BlackOut Intrigue has the same high-performance features you'd expect from the BlackOut brand. Designed with the engineers at Bowtech, the Intrigue sports a 31-inch axle-to-axle length, making it very compact. You'll notice the forgiving 7-inch brace height and 80% letoff. Combine those features with a solid back wall and what user get is a bow that is very forgiving and easy on the shooter, in one accurate package. The range of adjustability allows the bow to grow with the shooter's abilities. The Intrigue is lightweight, too, weighing just 3.9 pounds loaded with accessories. The package comes with a 3-pin Apex sight, shoot-through rest, Octane stabilizer, an installed peep sight, D-loop and wrist sling. Combine these accessories with the features of the bow, and you've got a tremendous amount of value packed in what may be the perfect archery package. The bow is available in right- and left-hand models and comes in Realtree Xtra camo with user choice of purple or red accents.
