    After months of anticipation and secrecy Bowtech released their pride and joy at this year’s 2012 ATA show. The 2012 Bowtech Insanity was one of the top most anticipated attractions this year at the show and as expected drew a large crowd. The 2012 Bowtech Insanity comes in 2 models the first being the Insanity CPX which is a 32″ axle to axle bow with IBO speeds of 355fps, and the other model is the CPXL which is the 35″ axle to axle model shooting IBO speeds of 340fps.

    The 2012 Bowtech Insanity bows have a few great features that are sure to grab the attention of bowhunters this upcoming year. Among these features include the Center Pivot Extreme Technology, which helps to provide more forgivness and accuracy in the line of shooter torque. OverDrive Binary Cam system to help prevent cam lean, and create a smooth draw.

    I was fortunate enough to be able to shoot the Bowtech Insanity this year at the ATA show and I found that it had a very smooth but aggressive draw, the bow felt very light and had a good feel to it when pulled back enough to activate the entire let-off. Upon releasing the arrow it doesn’t take long to realize the true power and energy creating that gets thrown behind the arrow. I did notice some vibration within the bow, as well as a very slight kick however it’s important to note that this was a bare bow setup and I am confident that if set up with a good stabilizer this would remedy these minor issues.

    All in all this is a great bow with a lot of great features, the only thing I have to complain about is that in my opinion compared to the other competing bows out there the price for the 2012 Bowtech Insanity is quite steep, and may end up hurting sales in regions where the economy is not the greatest.

      My brother just bought one. The dealer advised that Bowtech would not let them sell it for less than the price they set 949.00. I’ve been around bows for awhile seeing Pse lead the way in the speed department. The Cpx is very fast. Once you get it to the let off you just can’t believe the energy stored w/ a 80% let off. Amazing in not seeing the arrow leave the bow.

      I want to Know what the quietest bow of the past 5 years has been. I heard a Bowtech General a couple of years ago and the arrow hitting the target a 30 yards was louder than the release. Fast is good but quiet is better, if the deer can’t hear it, they won’t jump. I have had them try to jump when hunting with a 44 mag. at 1000 fps. No bow will ever match that! Of course I know they may have been reacting to seeing the recoil more than the sound but the fact remains, they are FAST! We do all we cna not to be seen, or smelled, Doesn’t it make sense also not to be heard?
