INVICTA 40 DCX reviews

When a company has a winning formula, it is most common for them to not mess with it and keep doing the same thing until it no longer works. At Hoyt, they shun this mentality and choose to take what already works and improve upon it until they get a true masterpiece like the Invicta 40 DCX.

Things to Consider Before Buying

Hoyt has taken their record shattering technology into the compound industry to create a new line of target bows that are taking shooting ranges everywhere by storm. With the new Invicta 40 DCX, Hoyt introduces their longest compound bow riser paired with longer limbs for an incredibly long 40-inch package that offers new opportunities for shooting and balance.

The new DCX cam system that is meant to dominate at the range shoots up to 316 fps so that you can be confident knowing every shot has the power and speed to be consistently accurate. Hoyt introduces their Invicta 40 with their new DCX cam system that is meant to replace and improve upon the already excellent SVX cam system used on other variants of the Invicta.

A broad range of adjustability and personalization are allowed with the Invicta 40’s draw length adjustability that works in tandem with Hoyt’s Stealthshot technology to create a refined shooting experience.

Who Should Buy it?

With improvements to every part of the bow from past models, Hoyt has created a unique shooting experience that is just what the serious target shooter wants in a bow without any compromise. Hoyt has a reputation in the archery industry for making the best target shooting bows on the market, and their new Invicta line is no exception. The Invicta 40 SVX has the potential to crush the competition but is only able to do so in the hands of an experienced target archers, where it can be used to its full potential.

Who Shouldn’t Buy it?

Hoyt created the Invicta line with the professional archer in mind so anyone with less experience or interest with target archery should look at other bows. The Invicta 40 SVX has an incredibly long frame and heavier weight that newer archers will struggle to cope with. Archers who want a hunting bow that can take down animals should look elsewhere as the Invicta 40 DCX is more at home at the range than the forest.


  • The Invicta 40 DCX merges all of Hoyt’s best target archery technology into one, reliable package
  • The new DCX cam system on the Invicta 40 make for a refreshed and refined shooting experience
  • The design of the bow and its size allow for balanced and stable shooting


  • The Invicta 40 has a much larger frame than other bows that adds to its heavy weight

Final thoughts 

Despite its larger than life appearance and weight, the Hoyt Invicta 40 DCX combines the best features from Hoyt’s medal collecting bows into an updated platform that benefits from all of the bows from Hoyt’s past to make the Invicta what it is today.

The first thing that I would like to say about the Hoyt Invicta 40 DCX Compound Bow is that it’s something that I haven’t seen before in the market. I don’t know what exactly that is, but it has changed my outlook on shooting. When I first saw this bow I wasn’t too impressed with it. What I mean by that is that for me a bow with no hand guard would be something that I would most likely never use. It wasn’t that I had any sort of problem with it, because as I started using it more I found out how easy it was to manage. I was getting so much accuracy that I didn’t even notice the hand guard and I definitely appreciated having it. There was a reason why I paid the extra money for it, the other reason is because it has given me such a much better value.

What I really love about the Hoyt Invicta 40 DCX Compound Bow is the fact that it has been designed with several different options. There are a lot of different scopes that it can be mounted onto so you will have plenty of choices. One of the options that I find to be really cool is that they include the attachable vertical rail for a scope. So this is something that can go with this bow whether you are going to be using a scope or not. Another nice option that I found is that it includes the string holder. The string holder is nice because it helps me keep my strings properly secured. Most people only use one or two strings at a time, but I like to use three at once, so this is a great feature.

You will find that the sling and the grip are both adjustable, so you will be able to find a comfortable position for your hands. I find that this keeps my hands from being out of the way, which makes it much easier to shoot. There are also other features that are included with this bow, but most of them aren’t even important to me anymore because the ones that I find are actually pretty fun. The internal chokes are great because they keep my hands and my head and they don’t allow me to get tired as easily. The lanyard is nice because it lets me keep it in my pocket, but if I don’t have the Bowcuff then I can easily remove it and put it back on. I really appreciate the comfort that I feel every time I use this bow, so I recommend it to anyone that wants to get one for their indoor archery.
