Bear Archery Carnage Bow Review

A few months ago we took a closer look at Bear Archery's entry level bow, the Charge , which we were rather impressed with, considering it an overall good value. Having taken a look at Bear's baseline bow, we thought it would be worthwhile to take a look at their current flagship compound bow, the Carnage.


2011 Bear Carnage Bow

The Carnage is offered in 50, 60, and 70 pound peak limb weights and the draw weight can be reduced by up to 10 pounds from the peak. The Carnage also sports Bear's new Skeleton cam system that uses modules to adjust from 25.5 to 30.5 inches of draw length. The module system is necessary to keep the bow's speed up and the Carnage doesn't disappoint with an IBO speed of 345 with 70 pound draw weight.


The new Skeleton cam uses modules to adjust draw length.

If you have seen Bear's Attack bow, that has been on the market for a few years, the Carnage at first looks quite similar and it's important to view the Carnage as an improved Attack. The overall look of the bow is similar, but Bear has enhanced the bow in several areas. Most noticeable is the "4x4" cable roller system that uses four aluminum wheels (two ball bearings per wheel for an eight ball bearing system total) that smoothly guides the control cable through draw and release.


The "4x4" control cable roller system.

The Carnage is slightly longer axle-to-axle at 32 inches versus the 31 inches of the Attack, plus the Carnage has an additional quarter inch of brace height coming in at 7.25 inches. The increased length and brace height makes the bow a little more forgiving than the Attack. Finally the Carnage is also slightly lighter than the Attack by a fifth of a pound, not much but impressive none-the-less given that the Carnage is actually longer.

What remains the same are the dual string suppressors and the heavily curved pre-load limbs from the Attack. The limb loading and the dual string suppressors are nice because they really make the bow smooth and quiet. The pre-load limbs deflect some under full draw but not much, which makes for a nearly constant draw weight with little stacking before hitting the 80% left off.


The Carnage uses split limbs that are pre-loaded and highly curved.


The Carnage is equipped with 2 string silencers that rest against the string at rest.

Currently the Carnage is offered in either Realtree APG or Shadow Black. Our only real complaint with the bow is that our review model had a few minor imperfections in the camo dip. T...
