Target BowsNew Breed CYBORG 2

New Breed Archery has been working to create the ultimate target bow for eight years. The result is the Cyborg 2. This bow combines the proven features of the Cyborg and the innovative features of the Elevation. New Breed gave the Cyborg 2 a considerable 37-inch axle-to-axle length, with a super-smooth draw cycle and a forgiving 7¾-inch brace height for nail-driving accuracy. Strategically placed limb and cable stops deliver a rock solid back wall and aid in tuning of the bow. The torqueless-free grip with Bowjax dampening inserts is set in-line so the limb pivots off the riser, giving it the extra increase in accuracy needed for serious tournament competition.

The Cyborg 2 features a unique hybrid riser that allows for no hand shock and features a new gusset brace fluted riser design made with the highest grade aircraft aluminum. The short limb configuration and all new Bionix Two Track 2.5 dual cam-to-cam modular system round out the package for unbelievable stability and accuracy.

Shooters also will like the secondary rear stabilizer insert which allows for easy installation of back weights, offset bars or a full set of rear-mounted V-Bars. There’s no doubt this bow is built to meet your individual bow balancing needs. And, like all New Breed bows, the Cyborg 2 is made in the United States and hand assembled by one person from start to finish, using only the highest quality parts available. No mass-produced assembly lines means a better quality finished product.

From the new hybrid cable slide system to all titanium and stainless steel hardware, prepare to rise to the top of your game with the New Breed Cyborg 2!
