Commander reviews

Back in 2007, when this bow first hit the market, it featured some really revolutionary tech, such as the twin Center Track binary cam system and the center pivot limb system. This bow may have been discontinued, but it can still be found used in various locations for a decent price. This is a fairly fast and accurate bow which is ideal for a variety of shooting situations. It is big and heavy, but it’s also durable, reliable, and stable.

Things to consider before buying

The Bowtech Commander compound bow comes with a silencing package, making it one of the quietest and least vibrating bows around. Shooters can add more silencing and dampening accessories, but it’s near perfect as is right out of the box, thus allowing hunters to maintain cover and not blow their position.

The high speed twin Center Track cam system is essential because it generates a lot of speed, up to 318 FPS, and it helps eliminate cam lean and torque. Keep in mind that the newer model uses a needle bearing which can cause excessive wear. What stands out is that with nothing more than an Allen wrench, the user can adjust the draw length in 0.5” increments.

This bow comes with a solid draw stop for a great back wall, and adjusting this will also adjust the let off from 65% to 80%, to suit a shooter’s needs. What can be said is that the Bowtech Commander compound bow features an extremely smooth and easy drawing cycle, no hump, and a good valley.

This bow features a long machined aluminum riser, which is big and heavy, but also stable and reliable. It makes for a forgiving, accurate, and easy-to-shoot compound bow.

With minimal cam tilt, almost no hand shock, no noise or vibration, and a steady and reliable base to shoot from, the Bowtech Commander makes it an ideal 3D shooting or target bow. It could be used for hunting, but that said, it may be a bit too large and heavy for hunters to use effectively. All in all, this is an all-around solid compound bow to consider.
