Bowfishing, the ultimate combination of bowhunting and sight fishing, is the next big thing, and you can get in on the action with Archenemy™ gear. This brand new line of bowfishing equipment is for those new to the sport as well as those who have already discovered the thrills of arrowing carp, gar and other rough fish.
Like bowhunting, getting the right bow and outfitting it with the accessories you need is the name of the game. The high-quality Archenemy Bowfishing Package has everything you need at a price you’ll feel good about.
The Archenemy Bow is a rugged, high-energy compound bow that measures 32-inches axle-to-axle. Its compact size makes it comfortable and easily maneuvered. It has a draw length of up to 30-inches to fit many shooters, and it has an incredibly smooth draw cycle and constant draw weight, making it optimal for snap shooting. Plus, the Archenemy bow looks really cool, too.
The bow package comes ready to hit the water with an Archenemy Rapid Fire Arrow Rest, Archenemy Nemesis Reel, Archenemy Reel Seat, Archenemy Tournament Series Arrow, and Archenemy Tournament Series braided 200-lb. test line. You get all this for $379.99. The fish don’t stand a chance, but your wallet does.
Available separately is the Archenemy Nemesis Reel. The Nemesis has a uni body design for strength and four stainless-steel bearings to keep it running smooth. The reel uses new SSC Technology™ that super-sizes the components for long life. It has an extra-large main shaft, too, that holds up even when you’re torquing in a titan. The Archenemy Nemesis reel features a 33-lb. drag with low 2.7:1 low gear ratio for increased power, and it comes spooled with Archenemy braided 200-lb. test line. It is available for $49.99.
The Archenemy Tournament Series braided line is also available separately. Like the top braided fishing lines available today, the Archenemy line has a 0.030-inch diameter for improved arrow speed and reduced drag. The line comes in 100-foot spools and is rated to 200 pounds. You can choose between lime green or white. Each spool will only set you back $9.99.
The arrows used in bowfishing are poles apart from those used for deer hunting. Because bowfishing arrows must travel through water and punch through fish scales, they must be way more heavy duty. The Archenemy Tournament Series arrow is perfect for the job. They are made of thick 5/16-inch fiberglass with a precision tip that is designed to penetrate the thickest gar scales. The tip is barbed to keep the arrow in the fish upon impact. It is available with or without an AMS slide that helps prevent snapback. Each arrow costs $9.99 or $14.99 with the slide.
So gear up and prepare for battle. There are gar, carp, and other rough fish waiting for you to become their Archenemy. Go to http://www.basspro.com/ or your nearest Bass Pro Shops® store to check out the latest Archenemy Bowfishing equipment.
