Hoyt 2017 Defiant Series

Pro Defiant Series

Hoyt 2017

86 years of cutting-edge engineering has culminated in Hoyt’s most advanced aluminum bow to date–period. Hoyt bows consistently top the most prestigious podiums and punch the most demanding tags, dominating in situations that leave no room for error. The all-new 2017 Pro Defiant integrates the best technologies from both of these worlds into a single, dominant technology set, including the proven DFX cams and UltraFlex limbs, backing its swagger with serious technology and performance. The Pro Defiant is purpose-built for the most serious, demanding bowhunters on the planet.

Carbon Defiant Series

Hoyt 2017

 

“This is carbon done right.”

You are no ordinary bowhunter, and this is no ordinary bow. This is hand-laid, thermoset carbon; a painstaking cross between meticulous engineering and devoted craftsmanship. Mastered only by Hoyt, carbon’s strength, weight and thermal characteristics make it the ideal material for premier bow construction. From vibration reduction and cold-weather comfort, to lethal accuracy and rugged durability, the advantages of carbon are definite. This is next-level bow­hunting design that flies in the face of industry norms.

EFFECTIVE STRING ANGLE AT FULL DRAW

Hoyt 2017

“Reaching” your head forward to your peep is more than just uncomfortable, it’s inconsistent. Hoyt engineered the UltraFlex Limb and DFX Cam Systems to promote comfortable, strain-free posture at full draw by increasing the distance between the cams at full draw. This broader cam-to-cam distance at full draw creates an ideal “flatter” string angle and brings the peep to you. These innovations allow a more relaxed, strain-free posture at full draw, and reduce facial contact, string pressure, and eye fatigue at anchor. The days of “reaching” are over; your days of tight, consistent groups have arrived.

The result is a 2017 30.5-inch bow that feels and performs like previous 34-inch equivalents, meaning that the compact version will feel and perform like a stable and forgiving 34-inch bow. Similarly, a 34-inch bow will perform like a 37-inch dream bow, and a 36.75-inch bow feels and performs like a stable and forgiving 40-inch bow . If the numbers don’t convince you, your experience at full-draw and your tightened arrow groups will.
