The Legacy Continues
The Pioneer II and Odyssey II compound bows from BEAR® ARCHERY offer shooters an amazing 15 draw length position adjustments (without a bowpress) for years of fun and use.
These two high grade bows from Bear® Archery are approved by Team Primos and are ready to perform right from the box and into the field (no assembly
At just $289 and $229 (suggested retail) respectively, the Odyssey II and the Pioneer II are priced for smaller budgets, but built for those with bigger aspirations. The two bow kits include 3-pin fiber optic sight with metal pins, two-piece quiver, three Satellite carbon arrows (Odyssey), three Safetyglass arrows (Pioneer) and a bonus Whisker Biscuit Arrow Rest® (a $40 value.)
Camouflaged in Realtree® Hardwoods HD Green, just like its bigger Bear® Archery brothers, the Odyssey II is proof positive that superior shooting equipment is available for short-draw archers.
Featuring a machined aluminum riser, compression molded flat limbs and a twin cam with inner cam adjustment (more than any other system), the Odyssey II is a performance-oriented, value packed, short-draw hunting bow. Light at just 2.9 pounds and compact at 32² axle-to-axle, it is a perfect fit for first time bowhunting and/or those simply needing a shorter, more user-friendly bow.
Adjustability and proper fit is the name of the game for many short-draw archers, who are typically young people willing to give archery a try. With draw lengths from 13 to 27 inches and peak draw weights of either 40 or 50 pounds to choose from, this bow can grow in stature and in power with young men and women.
A wonderful introduction to archery is the Pioneer II. It looks like dad¹s Bear® Archery hunter, but is engineered with learning the fundamentals first and foremost.
Colored in a black powder coat, the Pioneer II is as eye-catching as it is practical. Compression molded flat limbs, machined aluminum riser, tri-draw twin cam with inner cam adjustment, TechTwist Green & Brown string and an elasto-polymer vibration dampening grip are just some of the adult-sized features in this pint-sized bow.
At just 2.9 pounds and 32² axle-to-axle, the Pioneer¹s draw lengths are adjustable from 13 to 27 inches and peak draw weights are a comfortable 29 pounds with a 70% let-off.
