Driving the Ballistic is the same aggressively smooth AVS dual-cam system that Mathews developed for the McPherson series of bows, and at 330 fps it generates roughly the same speed as Mathews’ popular new Chill.
With an IBO of 330 fps, the new Drive is Quest’s fastest bow. That does not make it cutting-edge in terms of speed, but Quest bows are among a growing number of high-quality bows that stress shootability.
The “DS” is an acronym for DualSync, a reference to Darton’s hybrid cam system. The original Pro 3800 featured the same basic design, but the name was changed to DS-3800 presumably to highlight that design.
The Rogue is all about being smooth-drawing, pleasant-shooting, forgiving, and affordable.
Virtually every feature of this bow’s design contributes to its shootability, beginning with the new Fluid Cam.
Archery Trade Association’s leaders expect its balance of new and improved features will make 2015’s Show the biggest and best yet. Returning to Indy — the favored Show location based on ATA member surveys — is a positive and much-anticipated move.
