I’ve said it before (and was soundly ostracized on social media) and will say it again (and expect to be soundly ostacized on social media again): Speed is incredibly overrated. At 332 fps, the Ritual 30 will almost certainly be dubbed as “slow.” In fact, it is not. It is slightly slower than many of the flagship models I shot at the ATA show, that’s true. But it is roughly 30 fps faster than the hunting bow I used about five years ago, and that bow was plenty fast enough to kill deer. The Ritual 30 is a shooter. The draw cycle was very good, as it should be when a cam is designed for smoothness instead of raw speed. Elite bows always feel “stiff” to me, and this is no exception. That’s a good thing, it means when the bow is at full draw, everything feels locked into place. There’s zero backwall creep, the bow stands upright with ease and holding on point comes without effort. The Ritual 30 is, you guessed it, 30 inches in length which is three inches shorter than the original 2018 Ritual. There’s also a 35-inch version available. If you’re looking for a bow that’s easy to shoot, built with a high level of quality and don’t care about chronographs, this one is worth a long look. It lists for $1,049.
