Motive 7 reviews

The Bear Archery Motive 7 Compound Bow is a slightly more beginner-friendly version of their incredibly popular Motive 6. It’s a smooth, powerful, forgiving shooting bow, making it a great choice for recreational or even competitive 3D shooting, as well as hunting.


The Motive 7 has a lot in common with the Bear Motive 6. Both bows have the H13 Synchronized Hybrid cam system, which allows for fast, ½ inch incremental draw length adjustments without the use of a bow press. The H13 cams deliver a smooth, fast draw without a “hill.” Both bows have the Max Pre-Load Quad Limbs with Zero Tolerance Limb Pockets that reduce vibration and cancel extra movement. Both bows have dual adjustable string suppressors that make them incredibly quiet.

The Motive 7 is more forgiving than the Motive 6, with a higher brace height and comfortable valley. It has a draw length that is an inch longer than the Motive 6, which may suit some archers better. The tradeoff is that the Motive 7 is just slightly slower than the Motive 6, at 340fps instead of 350. The bow has a standard panel grip that comes with a removable rubber over mold for improved comfort, which helps keep the hands warm in cold temperature.


  • Extremely smooth, comfortable shooting bow
  • Good speed and very quiet
  • Lightweight and maneuverable
  • Great feel and very forgiving
  • Very versatile bow
  • Removable grip
  • High quality, durable construction


  • May be too short for some competitions and some archers
  • Not for beginners


The Bear Motive 6 is a hunting bow with a narrow valley and short brace height, which makes it too powerful and difficult for beginners to handle. The Motive 7, however, has all the features that make the Motive 6 so popular, but with more forgiveness for beginners and newcomers. The Bear Motive 7 is an incredibly popular bow among archers of all ability levels, because it’s quiet, powerful, fast, and simply a pleasure to shoot in a variety of situations.
