INVICTA 40 SVX reviews

Archery has been a part of human life for thousands of years with it providing food and protection to many generations of people all over the world. However, today we live in a society where archery can become a sport. The Hoyt Invicta 40 SVX exemplifies just how much of a sport archery has become.

Things to Consider Before Buying

Thanks to their background in creating recurve bows that dominate at any target range, Hoyt has taken their record shattering technology into the compound industry to create a new line of target bows. With the new Invicta 40 SVX, Hoyt introduces their longest compound bow riser, paired with longer limbs for an incredibly long 40-inch package.

The SVX cam system that is meant to dominate at the range shoots up to 325 fps so that you can be confident knowing every shot has the power and speed to be consistently accurate. Hoyt uses their tested and refined SVX cam system for this bow with the new DCX that is also available, offering a new shooting experience. Hoyt makes a bold claim that the Invicta 40 SVX is 50% quieter and has 50% less vibration than previous models which all adds up to create the smoothest and most comfortable target shooting compound bow that has ever been produced by Hoyt.

Who Should Buy it?

Hoyt has a reputation among the archery industry for making the best target shooting bows on the market, and their new Invicta line is no exception. 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 of the unnecessary fluff that should be left out. 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 archer.

Who Shouldn’t Buy it?

Unless you are serious about your target archery and don’t need the features and pedigree of the Invicta, you may be better suited in looking at other bows. The Invicta 40 SVX has an incredibly long frame and heavier weight that newer archers will struggle to cope with. If you want to take your bow hunting or need a bow that can do many things, the Invicta 40 SVX may not be what you are looking for.


  • The Invicta 40 SVX merges all of Hoyt’s best target archery technology into one, reliable package
  • The SVX cams used in the 40 SVX have a tested history of performance and success
  • The design of the bow and its size allow for balanced and stable shooting


  • The large size combined with a heavier weight than other bows makes the 40 SVX somewhat difficult to wield

Final thoughts 

Despite its larger than life appearance and weight, the Hoyt Invicta 40 SVX combines the best features from Hoyt’s medal collecting bows into a new and ready-to-win package perfect for the demanding target archer.
