Bear Archery has been in the business since 1933 and is currently one of the most in demand manufacturers of bow and archery equipment. They produce greatly accessorized rigs with a lot of extra movable parts. The Bear Archery Arena 30 is a hunting longbow that’s compact and offers countless adjustability deals in terms of its cam and bow feel. In a 345 feet per second IBO, it can be considered as a speed bow. Its brace at 6.5 inches is a brilliant add-on since a lot of hunters are not confident with those marks that come below 6 inches. At a price of $899.95, every shooter gets himself a great deal for this bow because of the numerous adjustment options it offers.
As a whole, Arena 30 is one of those bear compound bows that exudes some fine finish options for its users. Realtree AP snow is one good option for those who are into camo pattern bows, while for those who are not, they have a choice among the colors sand, olive or black. Each of these bear bow finishes come with black limbs as an exemption to the Realtree Xtra option. The bow has five top notch looking patterns that show the great craftsmanship of the manufacturer, leaving its riser in really great shape.
The Arena 30 riser has a very distinguishing look compared to other bear compound bows. Despite the bulkiness, the riser maintains a bow mass of 3.8 pounds as the structural design was for its better maintenance as the limbs are being drawn. This makes sense as the riser is prone to additional torque as the bow is drawn. Bear integrated a unique moving cable system to it that works very well. The riser also has two offset suppression string stops found at the top and at the bottom. These stops keep the strings from too much vibration that bring about a quieter shot. The stops are also adjustable in order to get the best fit.
The grip that this bear youth bow has is fantastic and come in two cool options. First is the rubber molded grip that feels a little blocky, but is very comfortable at the same time. For those with smaller hands or prefer a smaller grip, it is possible by removing the rubber and that gives a smaller feel for the shooter. The aluminum riser then serves as the main grip that may be colder during hunting but rubber inlays can still be added for the grip to appear top notch.
Arena 30 is the bear archery bow preloaded with max quad limbs. These split limbs when stressed offer a 50 to 70-pound of maximum drawn weights but can also be adjusted by 10 pounds lighter to give an overall range of 40 to 70 pounds. The limbs have pockets contacted to multiple points to provide maximum security throughout the entire cycle of the draw.
