Prime Ion reviews

Meet the most uniquely designed and lightweight bow from G5 Prime, the G5 Prime Ion compound bow, a bow engineered with the hunter in mind.

This is no ordinary bow. Each and every design feature is meant to meet the requirements of the hard-core bowhunter. You can now chase after a rutting whitetail with ease.

Things to Consider Before Buying

It is unlike any other bow you have come across in the sense that it has four cams, which is a proprietary technology for eliminating cam lean.

The bow itself is 31 inches ATA and has a 7.25-inch brace height, 26 to 30-inch draw length, 30 to 70-pound draw weight, IBO speeds of up to 330 fps, and a let-off of 85%.

The first G5 Prime Ion compound bow was featured in the market in 2015. A year later (2016), a new version with similar specs was released.

When compared to another market leader from the same brand, the G5 Prime Defy, the G5 Prime Ion proves to be more lightweight, more adjustable, and easier to hold at full draw.

Who Should Buy it?

Bowhunters who are looking for a lightweight design, maneuverability, forgiveness, and ability to hold at full draw longer, in order to improve aim and accuracy.

Who Shouldn’t Buy it?

Any hunter who is looking for those blazing speeds that will direct the arrows towards the target, irrespective of minor shooting errors.


  • Has a strong, lightweight, and balanced aluminum riser
  • Tunable roller guard smoothens the draw cycle
  • Quadruple cam design eliminates cam lean
  • Easy to get the timing right on the bow
  • Back wall is incredibly solid


  • Not as fast as you would expect a compact design to be
  • Your color/pattern options are limited

Final Thoughts

G5 Prime bows have always been about reducing torque and building accuracy, which they have achieved in the G5 Prime Ion, with their industry flagship Flexis-AR roller guard.

You might be disappointed by this bow’s peak speed, which is only 330 fps. However, it is generally an incredible hunting bow that’s focused on maneuverability, forgiveness, and shootability.
