Meet the most complete and versatile bow in the market in 2019; the Diamond Edge SB-1. Are you new to archery? This bow gives you all the adjustability you need.
No matter the age, size, or skill level, the Diamond Edge SB-1 is engineered for you. It features 7 to 70 pounds of limb adjustment, and 15 to 30 inches of draw length adjustment.
With an axle to axle length of 31 inches, the Edge SB-1 is a compact bow that’s ideal for hunting and target shooting. Not to mention how forgiving it is when you make mistakes.
Material and Design
The Edge SB-1 comes with a machined aluminum riser or handle that is solid and durable. This particular handle offers superior size to strength ratio.
Unlike most conventional bows, the Edge SB-1 features numerous cutouts, which are larger. The cutouts reduce the bow’s weight to 3.6 pounds, making it lightweight even for youths.
The limbs are quite extraordinary. They are engineered from solid carbon composite material, which is rock solid and highly durable.
The Edge SB-1 makes it easy for you to make your own adjustments with the easy EZ-adjust pockets. A simple turn of the limb bolt adjusts the draw weight from 70 to 7 pounds.
The EZ-adjust scale features easy to decipher marks that let you know right where you are. So, this means there is no more guessing.
This is also one of the most comfortable bows in the Diamond series. It has a bolt-on, molded resin grip that is suitable for both smaller and larger hands.
What’s even most remarkable is what powers the SB-1 – the binary cam system, which is not only certified but also synchronized.
The cams are actually slaved to each other. Therefore, less tuning as well as maintenance is needed. This cam system is perfect for young or new shooter.
The cam system is factory preset to a 30 inch maximum draw length. It has module numbers and module indexing grooves that make draw length adjustment simple.
Suitability for Hunting
The most important features for any bow hunter are versatility and adjustability, and that’s exactly what the Edge SB-1 offers you.
The binary cams offer matchless accuracy right out of the box, giving you the ability to be on target quickly and effectively.
The Edge SB-1 engineering mainly focuses on larger draw weight and draw length range. The cams offer a smooth draw.
The 80% let-off lets you hold only a few pounds of the peak poundage, which makes it very comfortable to aim. The 7-inch brace height is also very forgiving.
A bow for all ages – kids, youths, and adults. This is mainly because of the draw weight range, which can be adjusted from 70 to 7 pounds with just a turn of a bolt.
Arrow selection has to be perfect if you want unmatched success in the hunting fields or on the target board. There are two types of arrows you can choose for this bow; aluminum or carbon.
We recommend carbon arrows if you will be shooting 40 to 70 pounds, and aluminum if you will be shooting less than 40 pounds.
You should consider 30-inch long arrows. Apart from the length, you have to carefully choose the ideal spine, shaft diameter, and GPI. Check out more details on arrow specifications.
