Truth reviews

The Truth is an early compound bow from Bear, and one of the models that helped them build their brand. The Truth was designed in collaboration with Will Primos, and with the input of archers and dealers, with an eye to meeting the most demanded features at the most attractive price point. The Truth put Bear on the map with this well-balanced, all-around bow.


Bear Archery developed their reputation for innovation with the technologies introduced in bows like the Truth. The riser is machined from aircraft-grade aluminum for great strength and durability without added weight. The riser has Sims dampening modules to reduce noise and vibration.

The Truth has an elliptical, perimeter-weighted single cam, which cancels force and reduces vibration upon release. It has a smooth draw cycle that efficiently transfers energy into speed, and draw length can be adjusted without using a bow press.

The Truth has compression molded quad limbs that have great durability, along with pivoting limb pockets that reduce noise and vibration. It also has an ergonomic two-piece wood grip designed to reduce torque. It has a smooth, efficient draw cycle with a solid back wall. The 7-inch brace height and high let-off make the Truth a more forgiving bow, with great accuracy, at the cost (along with the single cam) of some speed.


  • High quality construction and durability
  • Smooth draw at any length
  • Draw length range can be adjusted without using a bow press
  • Quiet and shock-free


  • Narrow valley makes it more difficult for beginners to use
  • On the heavier side of modern bows with this ATA


Bear Archery built their reputation on bows like the Truth, and it’s still a solid performer with great features. A quiet bow with good speed and accuracy, a solid wall and high let-off, durable materials and comfortable grip, and a super smooth cam. It’s not a great bow for beginners, but for intermediate or advanced hunters and target shooters, the Truth remains a great choice and one of the bows that put Bear on the map.
