The Diamond Pro has the greatest let-off and maximum draw, whereas the Cruzer G2 has the lightest and highest IBO speed of the five.
Both of these bows come with limited lifetime guarantees, which only apply to the original owner of the bow. The warranty excludes abuse, mishandling, and cable/cable slides (i.e., perishable goods).
The Bear has a broader range of colors and a wider variety, with the Cruzer being available in a less expensive package for shooters who don’t need the full-size bow and are willing to give up some IBO speed (but not much) and draw weight in exchange.
We personally like Bear Cruzer and Bear bows in general, and the line has been adjusted for specific users. If you are a little more experienced or have a lot of money and want the fastest, lightest equipment possible (targets archers), then the G2 is where you’ll wind up (target archers). Want to save some money but still want the RTH? Then get yourself a Lite. It’s ideal for smaller-framed or even younger archers, and it has a little longer length and possibly a more forgiving feel than the RTH. That isn’t to imply that the Diamond Edge is inferior; it has a few key distinctions over the Bear.
The back wall of the Diamond is robust, as it is where the bow will no longer be drawn farther. At this point, a solid wall will suffice; a mushy back wall, on the other hand, will allow some give. Some people like the solid wall because it makes maintaining a constant anchor point simpler.
If you have no idea what a back wall is, chances are you shouldn’t be concerned. Many shooters are unaware of these items until they have completely outgrown their first bow. The Diamond has a greater let-off and maximum draw than the Bear. The difference in effective draw weight at maximum weight and full draw between this bow to the 70 lbs model is 3.5 lbs.
The original design of the Diamond Infinite Edge Pro began as the basic Diamond Infinite Edge. When the manufacturers realized they had a winner, they developed the second Pro version of the bow, which included some modest modifications.
The Diamond has a sturdy back wall, which some people enjoy. The riser on this bow is skeletonized, which helps to keep the weight down.
All the necessary accessories, such as a quiver, sight, sling, and stabilizer, are included in the package. The cam system on the pro is fantastic. You may switch this bow into an ‘Infinity/Bowfishing’ mode, which means it will shoot without any let-off.
Some people may find the Infinite’s grip too square, but if you’re of a mind and it matters to you, aftermarket grips are always accessible.
Some archery will enjoy the pedigree and history of bear archery.
The Cruzer’s three variations allow you to choose the sort of shooting you prefer. The Cruzer G2 is lighter and quicker than the RTH, with a more aggressive riser design. More material was taken away to make it the lightest of all the bows in this comparison.
The Bears MV cam system is used on these bows, which has a silky smooth draw with a lack of a solid back wall. However, this isn’t something that most consumers would have to worry about, as we stated previously in the market these bows are built for.
