For several years now, Diamond Archery has been riding a substantial wave of success, stemming in great part from their dedication to providing the masses with bows that fit every consumer.
One important note: I tested the bow in real life. Yes – I went and actually send some arrows downrange. The following is a comprehensive look at what I found to be true of the Diamond Archery Infinite Edge Pro in the form of features and functionality.
This has proven to be a highly successful business model, and many of the bows that Diamond has manufactured, as a result, have been nothing short of instant classics.
Now Diamond has released the Diamond Archery Infinite Edge Pro, which serves as a direct extension of the compound bow that started it all, in an upgraded form. I was recently given the opportunity to put the new Diamond Infinite Edge Pro through its paces on the range. The following are a number of observations that I made when shooting this exciting compound bow.
At a Glace
Before ever doing the Diamond Archery Review in person, my expectations were quite high. The Infinite Edge Pro has become one of Diamond’s most highly sought offerings since its release.
Praise for the Edge Pro has been extensive, and the bulk of reviews have alluded to its high rate of adaptability and ease of use.
I was excited to see if this compound bow could live up to the hype. With a 13”-31” range of draw length adjustability, and draw weight range of 5-70 pounds, it was evident that Diamond intended this wonderful compound bow to fit nearly any individual, from small framed youth archers to the heartiest of adult shooters.
Upon holding the Diamond Infinite Edge Pro in hand, I was pleased to discover how lightweight it truly was. In fact, to simply say that this bow is lightweight in nature does not do it justice.
Weighing in at just 3.2 pounds, arm fatigue when shooting should be no issue, and little to no difficulty is likely to be experienced when packing the Edge Pro, even on the longest of walks.

Overall, I would have to say that the Infinite Edge Pro looked somewhat basic in looks at first glance. It would be a stretch to call this bow stylish, yet this is purely a cosmetic observation and has no true bearing on shootability.
On the other hand, the Infinite Edge Pro’s fit and finish were quite obvious, as the bow appeared well put together and immaculate in its finish. Available in Black, Pink Blaze, and Mossy Oak (read.. Diamond Deploy SB).
As previously mentioned, much of the Infinite Edge Pro compound bow´s appeal lies in its significant range of adjustability. Draw length and draw weight are easily adjustable …
With a 13”-31” range of draw length adjustability, and draw weight range of 5-70 pounds, the number of archers that the Infinite Edge will not fit is few and far between.
Making needed adjustments of this nature are also simple to make: Adjustments to the Edge Pro’s draw weight can be made in a matter of minutes, by simply turning its limb bolts with an Allen wrench. Tightening these bolts increases the bows’ draw weight while loosening them reduces draw weight.
Draw length adjustments are made by removing the Edge Pro’s cam system modules and rotating them to a designated location that corresponds with an archer’s premeasured draw length.
Once in place, a simple tightening of the cam system module’s two retaining bolts will have it ready to be returned to service.
With a rated IBO speed of 310 FPS, the Diamond Archery Infinite Edge Pro is plenty quick enough to handle any task that it can be put up against. From various hunting scenarios to formal competition at the range, this rate of arrow speed is sufficient for nearly any range of uses.
Another high point of the Infinite Edge Pro’s design is its relatively short 31” axle-to-axle measurement. The bow’s conservative length makes it well suited to use in compact locations, such as a ground blind or heavily brushed in a treestand.
After quickly tying on a D-loop, and adjusting the Infinite Edge Pro’s draw length as needed, it was time to hit the range and do some target shooting. From the start, I was fond of the bow’s included wrist sling.
This sling consisted of a neoprene-like material and was adjusted easily while feeling comfortable on the wrist.
I also noticed that although somewhat bulky looking, the Infinite Edge Pro’s Grip felt comfortable and balanced in my hand. This came as a welcome surprise, as a capable grip tends to reduce hand-torque and other accuracy robbing conditions.
Upon coming to full draw, I was greeted by an extremely smooth draw cycle. The Infinite Edge Pro´s draw cycle was truly as smooth as that of several other bows I have fired that were offered at a significantly higher price point.
There was no noticeable lope upon cam actuation, and the settling into the valley was effortless.
When at full draw, I was pleased to find a rock-solid back wall. This came as a significant plus, as a solid back wall aids in consistent anchoring, which yields enhanced accuracy overall.
Holding at full draw was also of no difficulty at all, thanks to the bow’s generous 80% let-off factor. When releasing an arrow, the Infinite Edge Pro was whisper quiet, producing next to no audible noise. (read.. Predator Raptor Review)
Hand shock was equally minimal, being minimal enough to hardly be worth mentioning. It was also no problem to place arrows accurately and consistently, thanks in part to the bow’s generous 7” brace height.

- Whisper Quiet
- Rock-Solid Back Wall!

The Infinite Edge Pro comes fully outfitted with virtually everything you need to hit the range or head to the woods, outside of a release, arrows, and heads.
This comes as a significant advantage, as an archer can spend less time pondering how best to set-up their bow, and more time becoming proficient with their new purchase.
Included in this accessory package are a 3-pin Apex sight, Octane Octagon Hunting arrow rest, Octane Bantam 5 quiver, Octane Isolate 6 stabilizer, sight, string loop, and comfortable wrist strap. Overall in a high quality
These accessories have been specifically selected for use with the Infinite Edge Pro, in a bid to offer reliability and basic shootability. The 3-Pin Apex sight included within this package is ideal for new archers, providing easy aiming to moderate distances.
Likewise, the Octane Octagon arrow rest is another noteworthy staple of this accessory package.
This rest is of a captive design, which allows archers to nock an arrow without fear of it falling from the rest if inadvertently bumped.
Yet another high point of the Infinite Edge Pro’s accessory package is its included Octane Isolate 6 Stabilizer.
Evident by the results of our time spent at the range, this stabilizer does an excellent job of providing the Edge Pro with a balanced feel when at full draw, and notably dampens hand shock and noise upon the string’s release.
If there was one accessory contained within the Infinite Edge Pro’s accessory package that I feel needs an upgrade, it would be the included tube-style sight.
While this style of sight is certainly functional, the rubber tubing that is used for sight alignment can be prone to breakage in frigid temperatures, such as those encountered in many hunting scenarios.
After being allowed to evaluate the Diamond Infinite Edge Pro in a hands-on fashion, I feel confident in saying that this bow is every bit as capable as many consumers have stated.
This compound bow is user-friendly, deadly accurate, and priced at a point that should be affordable to the bulk of consumers. With the exception of a somewhat bulky grip that some archers might find cumbersome and somewhat antiquated peep sight, I have nothing critical to say of the Diamond Infinite Edge Bow.
Fortunately, both of these perceived shortcomings are easily remedied with quick component swaps.
With a smooth draw cycle, the likes of few bows can boast, a range of adjustability that is virtually unheard of, and the inclusion of a comprehensive accessory package, there is little not to like about the Diamond Infinite Edge Pro.
If you are looking for one of the top compound bows on the market today, but are on a conservative budget, look no further than the Diamond Infinite Edge Pro.
