Some bowhunters seek maximum speed and power. Others prefer an effortless draw cycle for more comfortable shooting. And many seek a middle ground between those extremes. Thanks to revolutionary new PowerShift Technology from BowTech, archers now have all three options in a single rig.

A simple position switch of the cam-mounted PowerDisks is all you need to move among Performance (maximum speed and power), Classic (hard-hitting but smooth) and Comfort (effortless draw) settings, and it can be done in just a minute without a bow press.

This “three bows in one” PowerShift Technology makes its debut on two 2015 BowTech offerings — the Prodigy and Boss.

BowTech Prodigy

In addition to PowerShift Technology, the Prodigy features BowTech’s Center Pivot Extreme Riser and is powered by the company’s OverDrive Binary Cam system.
