                                    CODE…INSTINCT…AND ELEMENT…

The Spirit of  Fred Bear® Lives Proud in New Compound Bow Series

 Fred Bear’s mission was to produce the best product for the dollar in the marketplace-- giving every man, woman and child the opportunity to shoot with confidence and precision-- arrow after arrow, season after season.

 In the tradition set by Papa Bear, the engineering team and craftsmen at Fred Bear® Archery have introduced a new series of Fred Bear® hunting bows for 2006 that will equal or outperform all competitors in the field and will simply blow them away in the value-to-performance ratio in archery departments throughout America.

“Our message with this new series of bows is simple and direct-- single cam innovation and parallel compression molded quad limb technology,” said Scott Alread, archery product manager for Escalade® Sports, parent company of  Fred Bear® Archery.

The Code model, for example, represents a tremendous value, $499 (suggested retail) in the store and $699 in performance in the field.”

In illustrating his point, Alread points to the bow’s perimeter weighted single cam system, sleek, long machined aluminum riser, cable guard with a straight carbon rod and teflon slide, two-piece wood grip, TechTwist™ green and brown BCY 8125 string and standard factory-installed Sims dampening system and leeches.

 “We are talking about a 34” axle-to-axle hunter that can deliver a sizzling 310 IBO fps with a deeper valley and smoother backwall,” said Alread.  “The Code, as well as the Instinct and Element, are following the trail blazed by last year’s introduction of the Fred Bear® SQ32, a premium bow establishing that top quality doesn’t mean top price for the consumer.”

In joining with the Code, Fred Bear® is debuting the Instinct, which at $399 will surely make jaws drop and palms sweat with anticipation. Short and dynamic at just 31” and 4.1 lbs, the Instinct also will feature standard factory-installed Sims dampening for a quiet in-the-field shooting experience.

 The Element at just $299 is a great entry into the new Fred Bear® line-up. It is a serious performer with 302 IBO fps speed and an attractive eye-catching Realtree® Hardwoods HD™ Green camo pattern.
