Title: Benjamin Pioneer Airbow
Post by: [Blocked] on June 23, 2016, 02:54:32 AM
Has anybody seen or shot one of these Benjamin Airbows ?? Are they the future of "Archery"?? Some states won't allow you to use them! From an Engineering perspective it looks very interesting and compact....It has been out for a few years now and all the time it is getting tweaked and refined...but have been watching videos on YouTube and must say they are very impressive.....

Will get some crazy feedback on this one!!!

It looks interesting, but I doubt they would be legal here, our bow hunting rules state, that you must bear the draw weight of the bow unaided, except for a release.  I can see it being like crossbows here, only if you are disabled and must submit a Doctors statement.  But that doesn't mean I don't want to try one out.  @--0--0120

That's pretty amazing...I could see where it would be illegal in some states. I'd like to shoot one!

i saw a video on these. pretty cool, but they are very noisy. sounds like a .22 going off.

I don't think they are the future of bowhunting. seems like a gimic

I saw the video a while back.   It's an interesting design.   Unless the rules change again it is still classified as an airgun here.  I would like to play around with on on the range.

It looks interesting. But I love my compound bow.

I'd be pretty sure that it would not be legal in NY

That is wicked I would love to try one I could see a lot of fun plinking. Only draw back I see is the compressed air and cost to charge the cylinders. Those big tanks are expensive and have to be hydro tested every five could be ten.

Like most of you, I would try it at a show, but to buy one, I don't think so. I still like and shoot my PSE compounds and both the PSE TAC 15i and the Stryker Crossbows shoot amazing well. I cannot believe how accurate they are.

Like metalman mention about the cost of the refilling the $400 accessory air-tank or $180 foot pump...that is way to much to spend. You can get the Benjamin Airbow for about $800....then add special arrows and accessories, you are in the $1500 range......ouch....

Also, at this point in time....only a handful of states allow their use.
I would love to own one, but as Bo has stated more expensive after purchasing needed accessories.               
Looking at the Halon or No Cam for this season.

I like the idea and it seems to work very well but like Bo said too much cash for this guy.

I shot these at the ATA show. They are cool but very loud. About like a 22 mag shot
