Outdoor Life is known for running one of the toughest and most detailed bow tests in the industry.
Hoyt Vector 32
The Vector utilizes Hoyt’s time-tested cam-and-a-half power plant, producing an arrow speed of 326.8 fps, 79.8 foot-pounds of kinetic energy at 20 yards (KE/20), and 15.6 inches of arrow drop at 40 yards (AD/40). The minimal 84.6 dBA of shot noise was the least produced by any bow.
At 32 inches, the Vector is compact, while a 6 ¾-inch brace height skates the fine line separating a speed bow from a pure shooter. The grip is classic Hoyt, earning unanimous praise from the testers for its simplicity and ergonomics. Pro Arc limbs are standard and promise no-fuss performance. At 19.17 meters per second squared (m/s2), this bow is ridiculously free of unwanted hand-shock and shot vibration. While no one would suggest that the Vector is an inexpensive bow, it is a good value in that it does everything well, without any shortcomings or compromises in its overall performance and design, making it worthy of our Editor’s Choice award.
