Following tradition, Bowtech once again unveiled its new flagship bow at this year’s ATA Trade Show in Columbus, Ohio on Jan. 10, at 9:00 a.m. The Insanity comes in two versions, a 32″ model shooting 355 feet per second and a 35″ model shooting 340 feet per second.

The Insanity bows feature the Center Pivot Extreme Technology, which resists shooter-induced torque for greater forgiveness and accuracy, OverDrive Binary Cam System to eliminate cam lean issues and provide exceptional tuning to produce cleaner arrow flight for greater accuracy, HardCore limbs to boost efficiency for more speed without a harsh draw and FLX-Guard, which greatly reduces cable guard torque to produce better arrow flight and easier tuning for greater accuracy.

Both bows come standard in Mossy Oak Treestand. Alternative finishes include Mossy Oak Infinity, GORE Optifade Forest or Open Country, Realtree APG HD and BlackOps. Target colors AnoRock Onyx and Inferno area also available. All finishes except Mossy Oak Treestand include black limbs.

The insanity CPXL has a longer axle-to-axle length for added stability and forgiveness, which makes it the perfect fit for archers with a draw length up to 32″.

I had a chance to shoot the Bowtech Insanity side by side with last year’s Invasion at the Bowtech shooting lane. Shooting the Insanity was exciting as the bow really put some heat behind the arrows as it sent them down range. One thing that stood out to me when drawing the bow was the short valley. Upon releasing the arrow, I felt a lingering vibration throughout the bow. However, this is a bare bow so some vibration is to be expected, and a hunting rig outfitted with a stabilizer and other accessories should significantly decrease, if not completely eliminate, any vibrations.

Another notable mention is the overall balance of the Insanity. When shooting last year’s Invasion, the bow slightly kicked back after the shot. The new design makes the bow extremely well balanced, and the Insanity remained steady even after the shot.

If you’re interested in shooting the new Bowtech Insanity or in the market for a new bow, head to your local dealer to give the Insanity a shot, and watch the arrows fly down range.
