6 Biggest Storylines from the 2013 ATA Show

by Bowhunting Online Staff   |  January 7th, 2013 0

Like the much anticipated reveal of the new iPhone or iPad each year, bowhunters wait with sweaty palms to see the latest and greatest the industry has to offer at the Archery Trade Association (ATA) Show in January. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, somebody drops the bombshell that revolutionizes bowhunting forever. What new toys and trends will this belated Christmas time spectacular bring for 2013?

First and foremost, 2013 is about lighter, faster and stronger. Whether we’re talking about the new PSE Prophecy—which may be the fastest single cam bow ever made—or the BowTech Destroyer 350—a classic reborn—this year boasts of an impressive cast of super fast, super light characters.

The other major trend this year comes in arrow design, as companies like Easton continue to improve upon the reduced diameter shafts for supreme penetration and blazing speeds. You can finally get most broadheads for the Deep Six system, so it looks like a trend that will only grow in popularity as the year moves on.

And finally, 2013 is about innovation. It’s about the new crossbows that are quiet, light and available in tactical color schemes, safety harnesses that are amazingly ergonomic and sci-fi-looking broadheads like the new Toxic from Flying Arrow Archery.

With full coverage of ATA on the way, we at Petersen’s Bowhunting help get your pump primed and your heart pounding with the top storylines for 2013.
