Durability

The Core is lightweight and rugged.  It is truly one of the most durable bows I have ever dealt with.  Not going to lie after spending a couple of hours sighting it in, I was shooting out of my tree stand and dropped it 15 feet.  To my surprise, it shot straight immediately after picking it up.  Stories like these define quality and are what make the best compound bows.

Get the Package Deal

The Core also comes ready to shot also known as a package deal.  If you can’t tell by now, I love ready to shoot packages.  They just make everything so much easier and less of a hassle.

It comes with the R.A.K. package which includes which includes an Octane Capture arrow rest, 3-pin Apex sight, Octane DeadLock Lite quiver, braided wrist sling, 5-inch Octane Ultra-Lite stabilizer, alloy peep sight and BCY string loop.  These accessories on their own are very pricey and just add to the value of this compound bow.

The Core also comes with E Glass Composite Limbs.  These things are a tank.  They can take a beating, and are still light weight.

Pros :
R.A.K. Package
Single Grip
Easily Adjustable Draw Length
Cons :
None

My Favourite Features

One of my other favorite things is the Core Single Cam which allows for easy adjustment of the draw length.  Some other compound bows require you to take off and switch out the cams to adjust the length, but this is not the case with Core Single Cam.

The Diamond Core is also equipped with a single grip.  Unlike some other grips, this grip really improves your shot and you can tell right away.  I could tell my shots improved by about 1/2 inch groups.

If I was told I had a $500 budget and I had to buy a compound bow, this would be my first choice. You really do get a lot for your money with this one.
