Diamond Deploy SB Review

Diamond Deploy SB Review

The Diamond Deploy SB was the first Diamond Archery compound bow to feature the binary cam system belonging exclusively to Bowtech, we will discuss more of that later. Though not being considered a screamer, this bow is of flagship-quality without the sky-high cost. Easily adjustable, solid back wall and excellent draw cycle are some of the great advantages this bow has to offer.

 

With a draw length that can be adjusted from 26 inches to 30.5 inches with the rotating cam modules, the Diamond Deploy can fit most archers. There are three options to draw weight to choose from; 50, 60 or 70 pounds. The Deploy can blast arrows at an IBO Speed rating of 330 FPS with a brace height of 6.75 inches. The axle-to-axle length is 31.5 inches and the mass weight is a light 3.2 pounds.

 

Let's dig and have a more in-depth look at this Diamond Deploy SB Review.

 

Bow Specs

  • Draw Length: 26"-30.5”
  • Draw Weight: 50, 60 or 70 lbs
  • IBO Speed: 330 FPS
  • Mass Weight: 3.2 lbs
  • Axle to Axle: 31.5”
  • Brace Height: 6.75”
  • Let-off: 80%

 

A must for hunting...

The Diamond Deploy SB was built based on a previous riser model, the Carbon Knight. The frame is made out of forged carbon composite which is the cause for its very light weight of 3.2 pounds.

The weight combined to an Axle-to-Axle (ATA) length of 31.5 inches results in an awesomely easy to handle compound bow which you can maneuver into the woods like a charm or stand still for an extended period of time without feeling fatigued. Plus there is little to no vibration and noise. With arrows that can be shot up to 330* FPS (feet per second) allow speed into the equation which gives you a powerful, silent, compact and lightweight compound bow, a must for hunting. 

*Note that 330 FPS is the IBO speed rating, to know more about how it is calculated read this post.

 

Binary Cam System

The binary cam system has been invented by Bowtech, who is the only one owning the rights to the patent. The Diamond Deploy SB was the first Diamond Archery bow to be equipped with this technology. The binary cam is known to aid achieve higher speed and much smoother draw cycle than regular dual cam. The system overcomes the timing and synchronization issues by slaving one cam to the other, minimizing the need for tuning thus achieving perfect shots every time. 

 

What's in the R.A.K. package?

The R.A.K. package which stands for Ready. Aim. Kill. The package includes the following equipment:
  • 4-Pin Apex Sight: Pretty good sight overall.
  • Hostage XL Arrow Rest: Good reliable and accurate rest. There is no doubt you can get something better but it does its job well.
  • Wrist Sling: Very comfortable on the wrist and easy to adjust.
  • Octane DeadLock Lite quiver: Very light and solid. Hold arrows tight.
  • Carbon Peep Sight: The peep sight mostly depends on preferences but no issue with it.
  • 5" Octane Ultra-Lite Stabilizer: Durable and lightweight. This stabilizer is efficient to help eliminate noise and vibrations. Its small size makes it ideal for hunting but a longer one might be best for target shooting.
  • BCY string loop: BCY is a very good quality serving the material.

 

Conclusion

This bow offers pretty much everything a hunter needs. The Diamond Deploy SB package will give you great value for the money. If you want to dig into the web to Compare Prices. It may be limited on finishes with the only two choices being black and mossy oak but I feel that this is not a real downside because of the main purpose this bow was designed for...Hunting.

So I don't honestly think a hunter would want a blue or pink coating to go for a hunt. Although ideal for chasing games, this bow can be as good for other purposes such as 3D archery and target shooting but using this bow solely for recreational purposes may be a bit of an expensive choice in my opinion. With that being said, it is a reliable, accurate and efficient bow to shoot with no matter what your intended use is. 

If you feel to build your package, the bow is available bare and you might be curious about comparing prices.

Had my Deploy for two years now, I’m on my second string and cable set. It’s been trouble free, accurate, and fast. It helped me win a 3D match last month.

Bought the bow a month ago. Been having trouble getting it tuned. Brought it to 3 different places to have a timing issue straightened out. But as yet they just can’t seem to get this thing to shoot right. The last place paper turned it. But the fletching is hitting the rest. So I’m beside myself with as to what to do. Thinking it just might be one of the oopses. Thinking about returning it and getting another one. Hopefully the new one will work.

I think I am going to order one today. I already have the icon dlx, the deploy looks just like the icon . The only difference I can see is the cams. Am I right?
