OBSESSION FX30 REVIEW | INITIAL IMPRESSIONS

The Obsession FX30 is a compact and lightweight bow. The FX riser combined with an overall weight of just 4.0 LBS makes the FX30 easy to maneuver, perfect for tight quarters. With its OB TRAX Cam, the FX30 is capable of providing speeds well over 300 FPS even at 85% letoff. The draw length on this bow is definitely shorter than other bows; its likely shooters will need to add a 1/2″ to get the proper length.


HOW WE TEST

Each arrow is fired — by hand — 3X through a chronograph placed one arrow-length in front of the bow riser. A decibel meter is placed three feet in front of the bow and three feet below the arrow’s path. Averages of the 3X groups are calculated. KE and M are measured with our calculators. All tests are conducted indoors.
