In 2018, TRUGLO, Inc. launched the Archer’ Choice RANGE•ROVER PRO DUO, a two-dot LED system based on the popular RANGE•ROVER PRO. The DUO model retains all the features of the original RANGE•ROVER PRO, while adding an additional red LED inside of the lens. This additional aiming reference allows long range shooters to accurately shoot beyond the range of the calibrated tape. The red dot also provides a helpful reference at shorter, more common hunting distances; when the green dot is set to 20-yards, the red dot approximates a 50-yard point of aim for most hunting set-ups. This reference helps archers estimate additional hold when needed – even at full draw.

New for 2019, the DUO aperture is now available independently, without body of the sight. This allows archery dealers and DIY archers to upgrade previous Archer’s Choice RANGE•ROVER models without having to replace their entire sight, or even change sight tapes. “Hunters have trusted RANGE•ROVER sights on their hunting bows for years—we want to make it easy to upgrade as the technology evolves,” said Pliny Gale, TRUGLO Marketing Manager. “Backwards compatibility is not always available in this industry. TRUGLO is known for being customer-focused; whether the customer wants the latest and greatest RANGE•ROVER sight system, or wants to upgrade and customize an older model, we now provide all of the options.”

The DUO aperture and single dot apertures each include a 10-32 stud mounting kit for simple installation on other brands of target archery sights.

Archer’s Choice RANGE•ROVER PRO DUO (Aperture Only) Features:

  • Black finish
  • Green center LED and red lower LED dots
  • 1.8″ aperture diameter
  • Push-button brightness control
  • 4-hour auto-off feature conserves battery life.
  • Glow-in-the-dark shooter’s ring

When TRUGLO, Inc. released the STORM bow sight several years ago, it quickly gained popularity due to its lightweight, ruggedness, and affordability.  The newly enhanced STORM G2 line improves the design while keeping the price attractive for archers who demand quality gear at a stong performance-to-cost ratio.

The STORM G2 bow sights include a new aluminum mounting bracket to ensure maximum durability in all hunting conditions. This new bracket, combined with a rugged pin housing assembly, retains the lightweight and compact geometry of the original design. A vibration dampening disc is captured inside of the mounting bracket to reduce overall vibration. The aperture has a generous 2-inch diameter to provide a large field of view and a glow-in-the-dark shooter’s ring to assist peep alignment in low-light conditions. The original PRO•BRITE pin system was maintained to ensure maximum compatibility between old and new models.

Two versions of the STORM G2 are currently available, both utilizing .019 inch diameter fiber-optic pins. The 3-pin model (TG3013B) is ideally suited for those with fast-shooting bow/arrow combinations or who desire a simplified sight picture for close-range hunting. Hunters who wish to stretch their shooting range can opt for the 5-pin version (TG3015B). The 5-pin model also comes with a the new TRU•LITE PRO rotary LED sight light that is ergonomically mounted to the aperture ring for easy operation. The 3-pin model can accommodate the LED light if purchased separately. Both models are adjustable for left or right-hand shooters.

New for 2019, Barnett launches the all-new Hyper series – Barnett’s fastest, hardest-hitting hunting crossbows ever. The HyperGhost 405 and the HyperGhost 425 harness Barnett’s newest technology and design to offer crossbow hunters the speed and power to take down big game.

The HyperGhost 405 features a monochromatic Mossy Oak® Treestand finish with skull detail delivers arrows at a blistering 405 feet-per-second speed.

The powerful HyperGhost 425 high-performance crossbow comes packaged with Barnett’s exclusive HyperFlite .204″ small diameter arrows. The combination of the HyperGhost 425’s unstoppable speed and power with the HyperFlite arrows means ultra-deep penetration and one-shot kills. The HyperGhost 425 features premium enhancements, including a 1.5-5×32 illuminated scope, CNC machined aluminum flight track, retractable counterbalance underarm support, Soft Lok floating bristle arrow retainer and anti-dry fire TriggerTech trigger.

TrueTimber Strata, the company’s most popular all-season camouflage pattern, is now featured on the brand-new Killer Instinct FURIOUS PRO 9.5 crossbow. Unveiled at the Archery Trade Association (ATA) Trade Show in January, the new-for-2019 FURIOUS PRO 9.5 helps customers dominate the woods thanks to a long list of premium features, low-profile design and coveted Strata pattern.

“It’s an honor to have Strata showcased on the new Killer Instinct bow,” said TrueTimber CEO Rusty Sellars. “Customers will quickly experience the power, control and accuracy of the FURIOUS PRO 9.5 and see how truly versatile our Strata is—anywhere from the back country to the back woods. This combination will give hunters an edge no matter where they hunt.”

TrueTimber Strata

TrueTimber Strata incorporates both macro and micro camo schematics—the macro design breaks up the human outline at all distances while the micro elements melt into any terrain at close range. From the open country of the west to the mixed forests of the south and to the leaf-barren late season hardwoods of the east, customers simply won’t find a more effective all-purpose pattern.

Killer Instinct FURIOUS PRO 9.5

The 2019 FURIOUS PRO 9.5 is a monster that’s fierce in both design and performance. Unparalleled balance of power, control and accuracy is delivered from the ultra-narrow 9.5” axle-to-axle framework. This low-profile design is easily maneuverable in the field, giving users better control, feel and responsiveness. Offering improved precision with unmatched accuracy, this crossbow is easy to use in tight areas and very well could end up being the deadliest weapon customers have ever owned.

Photo and video assets are available for the FURIOUS PRO 9.5 crossbow. Videos are available on TrueTimber’s YouTube channel (here), and additional photography can be provided by contacting marketing@truetimber.com.

Metal-jacketed micro carbon arrows are field-proven for big game hunters seeking to maximize lethal penetration with the goal to provide bowhunters the highest level of success. The Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) arrow combines an aluminum jacket over a micro diameter carbon shaft that results in the most advanced arrow ever available to bowhunters.  FMJ arrows extract more energy from the bow and increase penetration by combining it with reduced surface area and a slick metal shaft surface. The ultra-micro diameter penetrates with less friction within the target for more pass-through impacts to take down game quickly and speed recovery. Reduced friction during flight means higher speed downrange and the slick aluminum surface further reduces drag.  This offers noticeably easier extraction when pulling shafts from practice targets. FMJ’s are available in the new T-64 and in 4mm, 5mm, and 6mm micro diameters meeting price points to fit virtually any bowhunter.

Ultra-Micro 4MM Full Metal Jacket and Carbon Injexion shafts have emerged as the top performers for archers seeking the highest level of arrow penetration. Reports from the field are compelling with bow hunters reporting dramatic improvement when downing big game.

4MM arrows focus their mass into a smaller diameter reducing surface area for less drag during flight and less friction through hide, flesh, and bone. “It penetrates deeper as the shaft passes through with less friction behind the broadhead channel,” said Gary Cornum, Marketing Manager for Easton. “Countless successful hunts testify to the awesome effectiveness of a simple concept that equates to more downed big game—it’s like magnum ammunition for your bow,” Cornum said. The small diameter also means that arrows fly much better in crosswinds than regular arrows, meaning broadheads will find the aim-point more often in the field.
