We’ve gathered the most impressive advancements of modern compound bow engineering and combined them in the BlackOut— a bow that quietly delivers bone-melting speed and ultra-smooth performance! The Throttle Cam Tech is the fastest and the most efficient single cam on the market, sending arrows screaming into your target at up to 333 fps with a whole new level of accuracy. Parallel limbs store huge power reserves, and the whisper-quiet shot will surprise your quarry in a very deadly way. And with a 7" brace height and 32" axle-to-axle length, its peerless design and perfect balance make this bow a pure joy to shoot. Color: Realtree AP™. Weight: 3.8 lbs.
Package includes 3-pin sight, Hostage™ arrow rest, one-piece 5-arrow quiver, 5" stabilizer, installed string suppressor, and installed peep sight and sling
Throttle Cam Tech
The fastest single cam on the market! This cam has been stripped down and rebuilt from scratch, machining it to the tightest tolerances possible for unmatched efficiency so all potential power stored in the limbs is transferred to the arrow with minimal energy drop.
Rotating Draw Length Modules
Adjusting the draw length between 26.5" and 30.5" (in 1/2" increments) is as simple as removing the module screws, rotating the module, and retightening it. No bow-press required!
Limb-Mounted Bearing Assembly
Most manufacturers integrate the bearing into the cam itself, which can lead to inefficient power transfer and imbalanced rotation. We’ve placed the bearing assembly on the limb tips instead, allowing near-perfect efficiency and unencumbered, true centered alignment.
Highest-Tolerance Fully Machined Riser
The 6061 T6 aluminum riser is precisely CNC machined to eliminate unnecessary weight and maximize strength. It’s long enough to add precious forgiveness to each shot, yet short enough to maneuver deftly in ground blinds or tight treestands.

This bow is aboslutely and totally awesome, and the price is really good compared to other 2010 and 2011 bows.
I have had a RedHead Kryptik for 3 years and wanted to upgrade to a faster bow. I tried the Kryptik Pro but it was barely faster and harder to shoot than the Kryptik. I tried the Bear Carnage, which is insanely fast, but I didn't like thre grip or the draw cycle at all. So I stuck with the Kryptik and waited to find out what the next RedHead bow would be. I tried the Blackout soon after it came out and was immediately impressed, so I picked one up during the fall classic.
It is not quite as fast as the Carnage, but it shoots beautifully and accurately. The grip and the draw cycle are great. The string is great and shows no wear after about 1000 shots. It comes with a string stopper, which in my opinion is more important than a stabilizer.
The riser is coated with a rubbery like camo skin that contributes to damping and seems like it would make it grippier and less cold to the touch.
The sight it comes with is junk. I put my old Carolina Foxfire sight on and love it. I'm using 27 inch Carbon Fury arrows on a 29 inch draw at 62 pounds and found you only need 1 pin out to 33 yards.
The included rest is a Hostage XL, which is great. The stabilizer is light weight, but I will probably remove it and shoot without.
The quiver is light and awesome. It comes with an extra mount so you can move between two bows or attach it to your stand or backback. I am retiring my $60 Alpine softlok quiver because the included quiver is so nice.
It comes with a floating peep, which so far has worked very well and and has stayed aligned with the D loop.
I also shot the Blackout against the Diamond Deadeye which is a near twin of the Blackout. At $200 more, The Deadeye shoots noticably a little faster, and has a couple of upgrades, like the string roller which is nice, and the Hostage Pro rest. But it felt top-heavy to me and it had a more difficult draw cycle than the Blackout. All in all, even if they were the same price I would have still picked the Blackout over the Deadeye.
The guys at the Bass Pro in Gurnee helped me get paper tuned and dialed in, and I am able to get 2 inch groups at 33 yards with the Blackout.
The only one possible negative of this bow is the depth of the channel on the idler wheel. The string rides a little high and looks like it could come off the idler if torqued sideways or if you drop the bow. But I'm guessing the engineers tested to make sure this was not a risk, so this might not be an issue at all.

by putso best bow for the price
I bought this bow 3 days ago and love it i haven't bow hunted much the past couple years due to using some very old stuff but now I will be in the woods every time i get a chance. I was very surprised at my uncle's reaction on how fast and quite it is cause all he shoots are mathew's. The rest that comes with it isn't bad but i upgraded to a fall away and now its even better than when i shot it at the store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KirbytheBowhunter Quite Possibly the smoothest bow ever
I bought this bow @ the Broken Arrow BPS. The staff was second to none in assisting me with my purchase.
The Blackout is made by Diamond a division of Bowtech. I have supreme confidence in the Redhead brand. BPS hit a home run with this bow!!!! It is one of the smoothest bows I have ever shot. Extremely quite!! Ready to hunt it comes with everything you need except arrows and a release. At 3.8 lbs this bow weighs half of what my old Golden Bear Kodiak II weighed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rogersfatlip Great Buy......
I purchased this bow about 2 weeks ago. I am very pleased. For the money you can't beat it. (And the wife won't complain nearly as much! Lol) I will probably do some upgrades on the sights in the future. They work just fine, I would just like a 5-pin sight. I looked at a lot of bows. This is a steal... Only complaint was the understaffed archery dept at Bass Pro. I was there for over 3 hours waiting. The staff member that helped me did a great job. He stayed after hours to finish me out and get me sighted in.
