    Solid, Sturdy, and Shooting-worthy Review by Joel

    I love - and I mean LOVE - shooting my bow. It is something my dad taught me on a 1963 Bear Bearcat recurve bow. Many arrows have been sent towards hay bales with that recurve; however, my dad still has not forgiven me for converting over to a compound. Being more of a shooter than a photographer, I've chuckled at the GoPro phase that our modern world is in where anything and everything outdoors is being recorded. Well, for those of you that know me, this review is going to be a stretch. Yes, even I now have a camera mount for a bow, and my specific mount is the Bracketron ProX Bow Mount. This unit attaches to the bow through the stabilizer port and allows you to record any and all action through just about any video camera.

    Just so everyone knows, the bow to which I have mounted the ProX for purposes of this review is a 9 year old Quest QS33. Is was the first bow of the Quest line and is set at the following specs: (1) 29 inch draw length, (2) 70 pound draw weight, (3) 34 inches axle to axle, and (4) weighs 4 pounds as a bare bow. I shoot arrows that are 30 inches long and have an actual spine deflection of .330 to .370, which includes a 100 grain arrow tip. Since I started this review, I've purchased a new bow -- Hoyt Charger. The draw length and poundage are identical but there are two differences: the axle to axle length is three inches shorter, and the weight of the bow is lower as well. Everything below was noted on both bows even though I do not have any pictures with the mount on the Hoyt. Finally, I shoot my bow a lot - every week during all kinds of weather in order to track performance in difference conditions (yes, I am a nerd of sorts in those matters but I look at it this way -- over-preparation is the only kind of preparation that yields successful implementation). Simply put, shooting in all kinds of conditions familiarizes you with the bow and its performance; so that knowledge helps in reviews of products during a shooting routine.

    First, this unit did not come with complex, detailed, and tiny instructions; and that is a huge selling point. I am a firm believer in keeping things simple, which is exactly what Bracketron has done. The ProX fit easily with the bow and camera meaning that I was recording withing minutes. Further, this unit is sturdy. I've had my hands on other units that are flimsy and you immediately question whether they will hold up over time. The Bracketron ProX does not have that feel. Now, granted, I've only put about 50 shots through the bow with it taking video, but that is more than I have shot with any other mount. Why? I simply did not trust them to hold the camera and worried about disturbing my set-up. The simple "feel" of this mount was much better than anything I previously touched, and this "feel" was developed by flinging arrows at multiple distances -- as close as 20 yards and as far away as 50 yards. Finally, the fact that this mount is versatile enough to handle a GoPro or an older camera works well for the budget -- you do not have to buy a new camera just for the mount (so avoid trying to use this in a negotiating tactic to get a GoPro camera if you do not own one).

    Second, the weight of this mount is perfect -- absolutely perfect!! You cannot tell a difference between the stabilizer and the mount/camera. This matters because accuracy in bow shooting can be summarized in two words -- consistent routine. Part of that consistency is in technique and motion while another part is in weight of the rig. My Fuse Carbon Connexion stabilizer weighs in at 7.5 ounces; so I was pleasantly surprised to see the ProX and old Cannon camera tipping the scale at 9 ounces. In other words, there is no worry whatsoever about changing the dynamic due to weight. This mount perfectly functions as a stabilizer!

    Third, I'll be totally honest here -- I was skeptical about a possible shooting issue. Anytime that the stabilizer is removed and replaced with something that has a vertical component that you then attach a camera to, well, you have to start wondering about arrow clearance. Folks, there is NO ISSUE WHATSOEVER here. The ProX mount had no issues with arrow clearance. I tested it by sight, by shot (with fixed blade and mechanical broad heads), and by measurement. Never once did the mount and camera get in the way of an arrow leaving the arrow rest. Take my word for it...don't give this another thought.

    So what?
    If you are looking for an attachment to mount a camera on your bow, I do not think you can go wrong with this one because it is all you need. It’s simple. It’s weight is just right. It’s easy to attach. You will not go wrong with adding this to your archery/hunting lifestyle.
