The Bowtech Guardian is considered to be one of the best "fast and quiet" bows on the market. With IBO speeds reaching fps, the Guardian has great shootablity characteristics and is known for its lack of noise and vibration.
Equipped with new and improved technologies, this bow is a very good choice for average shooters. Eccentric system One of the new technologies is the CenterTrac Binary Cam system that was designed to eliminate cam lean. This is achieved through attaching both harnesses in such a way that they are placed on both sides of the string groove. In addition to eliminating cam lean, this system also reduces torque through balancing the limbs. All in all, it all boils down to increased efficiency, better shootablity, and greater consistency.
The draw length can be adjusted from 25" to Draw cycle The draw cycle is very consistent and smooth as noticed by many experts and archers. One could expect a harsher draw cycle for the speed the Guardian generates, but admittedly it's not the case. With a smooth draw throughout the cycle and a very solid back wall, this bow draws and holds very well and delivers excellent overall shootability. Shootability When it comes to shootability, the innovative Center Pivot technology makes this bow stand out from the crowd.
As with conventional bows the limbs are attached to the riser at two places. What makes this bow different, though, is another third attachment place - the center pivot point. Such design changes the way the limbs bend - some experts like to say that when bent the limbs look like a rainbow, with an arc around the center pivot point.
What it all boils down to is that not only this bow is forgiving and fast at the same time but it also is very quiet and has very low recoil. Appearance Interestingly, when this bow was first released a number of comments were generated about its look. Having a deflexed riser this bow does look different.
That is why some hunters were saying the Guardian looked 'unusual' due to its center pivot design. Even though such archers were not satisfied with its look, they appreciated the innovative design making this bow 'dead in your hand'.
Despite some negative comments, many people really liked the new look not to mention its shootability characteristics. Quietness and vibration As many Bowtech bows, this one is designed to be quiet and vibration free.
A number of Bowtech Guardian tests conducted by archery experts confirm that most shooters are completely blown away with its zero silence and lack of recoil.
Archers agree that little to no jump is noticed on releasing the string. They also say that using the standard string silencing system as opposed to adding extra silencing components is more than enough to enjoy shooting this bow. Other thoughts It is worth mentioning that this bow is designed in such a way that no bow press is required for adjusting the draw weight, replacing and working on strings, and adding peep sights.
Summary To conclude, the Bowtech Guardian is a fast and quiet bow that has received a lot of great feedback from many shooters. Multiple tests by experts and archers confirm that this bow is fast and has virtually no hand shock and vibration.
That is why the Guardian is considered to be one of the best "fast and quiet" bows. With the forgiving brace height of 7. Pros: its silent and deadly almost no vibrations which makes it a killer bow.

BowTech Guardian Compound Bow
Changes in design, new concepts and materials, and, frequently, different circumstances or timing will provide better opportunities for successful application. The limbs were laminated with wooden cores, as solid fiberglass limbs were still in the stage of refinement at that point. Production of the bow lasted until about when it faded away for a combination of reasons. The limbs pivot at their centers but are fixedly retained on a rigid part of the handle where the limb adjustment bolts are located. The mid-limb pivot is mounted on a movable extension of the handle, which is actually a pivoting link free to rotate on a pin supported by anti-friction bearings mounted on a short, solid, rearward extension from the upper riser. From the lower limit of the grip section to just beyond the end of the sight window, it is quite conventional. Beyond those two points the handle is designed to accommodate the Center-Pivot limb system.

Bow Report: BowTech Guardian
I feel this bow was extremely way ahead of its time. Though I haven't had the pleasure of shooting every bow tjat Bowtech has come out with, I have owned around 5 other bows made by them or their Sister company Diamond and I must say that the Guardian ranks among the top 2 of my bows. The only thing I have against buying one today without actually being able to shoot it, is because I'm pretty sure it's getting rather difficult to get limbs for them. So do your homework before you go wasting your money. Other than that, especially if you're on a tight budget, you won't regret it, if the bow is in good shape
