Obsession Evolution XS Review

A compound bow in the middle of a hunt is essentially an extension of the hunter who holds it and needs to feel just right to allow them to take the perfect shot. At Obsession, they are dedicated to crafting the perfect hunting companion and their all new Evolution XS hopes to be the perfect compact companion for many hunters.

Things to Consider Before Buying

Obsession, as the name suggests, has been striving to create a bow that archers would find no replacement for and cherish for many years. For the archer who needs a compact and maneuverable bow for their hunting style, the Evolution XS hopes to be that very bow. The XS has a rigid yet compact frame that measures in at 31.5 inches in length. The smaller size of the bow is great for archers who are looking for a tree stand bow that can be flicked from side to side without getting it by branches. To enhance an archer’s ability to move around with the bow, it’s a lightweight frame only weighs 4.4 pounds, so archers have an easier time aiming and moving around with the bow.

The XS comes with the all new OB Adjustable 4-Track Cam System that allows archers an easier tuning process than ever before, so that every archer can find their perfect shooting characteristics. The rotating cam module means that the draw length of the bow can be adjusted almost instantaneously, and no expensive bow press is needed for adjusting the bow to a personal preference. A shooting speed of up to 338 fps, combined with the benefits of a small-framed bow, make the Evolution XS one of the best compact bows on the market.

Who Should Buy it?

As mentioned above, the compact nature of the Evolution XS means that archers looking for a bow that works in compact areas will love what the XS brings to the table. The combination of high power in a small frame makes this bow just what a tree stand archer needs and is even a great choice for smaller archers who don’t want to sacrifice power with a smaller bow.

Who Shouldn’t Buy it?

The small size may make the bow seem friendly, but it will take control if you let it. Newer archer should look to less powerful bows, as the XS was designed for experienced archers who know how to properly deal with its impressive power.


  • Comfortable size and big power combine into one agile package with the Evolution XS
  • The new cam system offers improved power and adjustability with a smooth shooting profile
  • Higher shooting speeds than the similarly sized competition


  • The smaller frame of the bow may be harder to use for larger archers

Final thoughts 

Small spaces require as much power as possible in as small of a frame as possible. With the Evolution XS, Obsession has created a killer that’s only limitation is where the archer is too afraid to take it.

The Obsession Evolution XS Compound Bow is a revolutionary design. It can be used in virtually any situation that would require a bow. The only thing that should cause you concern is that you might hit your kids or have to make it rain, and not this one because it has a slide that automatically controls the arrow speed based on your choice of release. That means you don’t have to worry about the outcome of your target and the arrow hitting the ground. The Obsession Evolution XS also has an overall length of 78″.

There are different things that the Obsession Evolution XS Compound Bow has that really sets it apart from all the rest. It has a recoil system that releases the string in a rapid way to help slow down your arrow’s flight and prevent it from tearing through your shoulder at the same time. The bow itself is made from a hollow fiber core and wood. It is adjustable with its limbs and that allows for any shooter to get the accuracy he needs. And it comes with a magnetic feature that helps keep the string safe.

This type of bow has a quick release system that helps the shooter get into a relaxed state where he can get control of the bow and place the arrow releases the proper way to keep his shot straight. There is no need to worry about your shots not going where you want them to go and you won’t have to hold back because you could easily think of everything before it happens. So, if you are looking for a bow that will allow you to focus on the game and not worry about the person shooting the bow then you need to look into the Obsession Evolution XS Compound Bow.
