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.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Bow I am new to bow hunting, but I love the new Blackout. Its a quiet bow with plenty of speed and power. I have added 2 pins to the site and taken the light off of the site. The light will be a nice addition for night hunting but during the day the light can be an additional source of noise while firing the bow. I am still not sure whether I like the hostage rest due to slight movement of plastic parts but it works well so far. I hunt with a friend who has been hunting with Mathew's bows for years and he made the comment that my bow was easier to shoot and would make him a deadly shot in the field. Great bow keep up the good work. October 4, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Zero to Hero I hadn't shot a bow for about 8 years, and even then, I had been confident with shots 30 yards and closer. I had Mathews and Parker bows before. After a unique hunting opportunity was presented, I went up to the Bass Pro here in Springfield and did some shopping. After considering, I picked the Blackout, had it set up and tuned at the store. I shot it at the store and was amazed with its quickness, balance and silence. This was Tuesday. I shot for about an hour on wednesday to get my 30 and 40 pins dialed in. Friday night, I shot a big 6 x 5 elk straight through the heart. The confidence I had gained with perfect practice of such an easy shooting weapon was surely a factor. After 8 years, this bow has me anxious to hunt as often as I possibly can. The confidence I have with shots 60+ yards now is borderline obnoxious (in a good way!!) September 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Supreme Bow 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. September 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. September 9, 2011

A: 
Limited Lifetime Warranty. Since it's a Redhead, if anything should go wrong with it, you just take it to Bass Pro Shops and swap it out instead of having to ship somewhere.

I've shot this bow a lot. Never had a problem with the string come off the idler wheel. If you cant/twist your bow when you draw, as with almost any bow, you run the risk of popping the string off. Dont cant/twist your bow on the draw and you should have no problems.

A: 
As mentioned by other posts this bow is not for a new shooter you need good form. I have shot the bow for about a month building up from sixty to seventy pounds. It took some time to get used to the aggressive cam. To that end, letting the bow down once drawn needs to be done carefully. I have had no issues with the bow but Ihave been shooting for over 12 years .

A: 
It depends. If you have been hearing that the lip on the idler wheel is too small and allows the string to fall off too easily, then sort of. That is true and false. Yes.. the lip is too small, it really needs to be bigger. But, this should be no problem to a seasoned shooter. If you torque the heck out of your bow the string will pop of. Keep the bow straight like it should be and you should have no problems

A: 
No. Possibly too long but it depends on your rest. Draw length is measured 1 3/4 inches from right around the middle of the shelf, maybe a little closer to the base of the rest. I still have the Hostage rest on the bow ( I don't like it but I don't feel like changing it at the moment), I shoot a 30" draw and 29" arrows. Hope this helps.

That would be Diamond Bows which is Bow Tech . The black out is a fugitive with a longer brace height. I contacted Diamond archery about the bow and they were very helpful with my questions.

No according to the Diamond tech I spoke to the Blackout is closest to the Diamond Fugitive with a longer brace height and a little less speed. I bought the bow and it shoots very nice but you have to be an experienced shooter.

You can get a manual from Diamond Archery. The two sets of numbers on the lower cam are the Module Position and the Module/Post Setting numbers. There is a combination of numbers that equal different draw lengths on different Diamond bows.

A: 
Probably. You would need a 35 inch draw length for 33 inch arrows. A good length it 1-2 inches shorter than your draw length. At full draw the tip of your broadhead should be no more than 1 inch forward of your riser shelf.

Generally, we recommend that archers order an arrow an inch longer than their draw length. This is to compensate for any measuring errors.
