Bowtech, as one of the leading bow manufacturers of our times, made the Assassin Compound Bow available from 2011 to 2013. If you are looking for a decent bow and have the chance to buy an Assassin – don´t hesitate to do so – It´s a great bow, and while more than seven years old, still makes a perfect hunting companion.

Bowtech created this bow with several improved features. Maybe they were not groundbreaking, but surely guaranteed great value for your money. And this is still true even today!

Bowtech Assassin Buying Guide

The Assassin comes with an adjustable eccentric system, enabling the bow to reach up to 333 FPS (IBO). It incorporates the famous Bowtech binary cam system (read.. Bowtech Carbon Knight For Sale).

Draw Length is adjustable from 26-30 ” in 1/2 inch increments. No bow press is needed. If you want to adjust the draw length – remove the module screws, rotate the module, and put the screws back in. Done.


  • Lightweight
  • Adjustable
  • No bow press needed
  • Fast (up to 333 FPS)


  • Draw Cycle
  • Hesitation before hitting the back wall
  • Discontinued

All other adjusting is done by utilizing one of the two modules available:

  • speed rotating module
  • smooth rotating module

No bow press is needed. You can tune your let-off from 65% all the way to 80%. Which is even for today’s standards, still pretty decent…

The bow was sold as a ready-to-shoot package (R.A.K.). I doubt that you’ll find an offer with the original components. As with most sets, equipment will change due to individual preferences.

The bow is not offered by Bowtech anymore. Your best chances to find an offer probably is ebay, or some private garage sale.

Bowtech made this bow available from 2011 to 2013. It has a smooth draw cycle, a pretty impressive speed of up to 333 FPS, and is highly adjustable. The relatively low weight and an adjustable draw weight of up to 70 lbs making this a good hunting bow.

Even after today’s standards, the Assassin is still a decent bow. As mentioned above, Bowtech discontinued the Assassin. Your best chance to find one is probably eBay or some private sale (read.. Mathews Z7 Bow).
