This year Elite boasts some new technology that boosts the speed of its new Energy Series bows without compromising shootability. In fact, if anything, the design of the Energy series bows enhances shootability.
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 2015 Louisiana turkey season could provide a bumper crop for hunters looking for a free meal. Bad weather last winter meant fewer than the normal number of birds were taken, so hunters who missed a bird in 2014 should have better luck this time around.
The ATF giveth and the ATF taketh away. That’s the moral of the story of the SB-15 Pistol Stabilizing Brace which launched a revolution in the AR-style pistol market that in less than one year has collapsed into uncertainty.
