New Year, New Gear: 35 Top 2023 ATA Show Products

Rage + Schrade Enrage Knife

Each year, members of the archery industry travel to the annual Archery Trade Association (ATA) Show to see the latest and greatest in the archery and bowhunting industries. Oftentimes, companies in attendance have new products to release, or reimagined and revamped older products. This year in Indianapolis, Indiana, was no disappointment. The ATA Show floor was loaded with new offerings for 2023, as well as some old winners that keep driving sales, too. In no particular order, here are 35 products that caught my eye during the big bow show.

Rage is known for its broadheads, but now it’s in the knife business. It partnered with Schrade to produce a great replaceable-blade Enrage knife (top photo). It includes premium handle options, including carbon fiber and forged carbon fiber. Several options include the Isolate, Phantom, and Stryche series. Various knife lengths range from 6-8 total inches, and blade lengths range from 2-3 inches. These come with six blades.
