Introducing the 2024 Bear Archery flagship model - The PERSIST. Nine decades of American made craftsmanship, tradition and field testing, culminated into this refined design. The PERSIST is stealthier than ever before featuring strategically placed in-riser dampers, innovative string stop with built-in dampening, and new silent shelf technology to make your errant arrows contact with the riser undetectable. Streamlining your bows profile integrated picatinny sight mount and Integrate Mounting System rest locations. We have also included an integrate wrist sling mounting point to eliminate unnecessary added parts. Built with the whitetail hunter in mind, we integrated a loop to the limb pocket for quick and secure connection of a pull up rope.
NOTE: This bow CANNOT be shipped, Bear Legend series bows are available only in our walk in pro shop.
What Dalton Found New for 2024:
New Riser Using the general profile of the Execute, the Persist has new bracing and new cut outs to reduce vibration and noise. Integrated Pull Up Rope Connection A unique solution to a problem of pulling your bow up in the tree and can be mounted top or bottom. Putting it on the bottom limb pocket would be 10/10. Integrated Wrist Sling Another unique solution that eliminates having anything mounted behind the stabilizer which makes a stabilizer even more effective. EKO Cams -This bow uses the same cam as the Execute that allows for letoff and draw length adjustment all onboard. Letoff can adjust to 75, 80, 85 and 90%. New Picatinny Sight Mount -Machined into the riser in the same way flagship bows are for straight, level and solid mount of all Picatinny sights that also keeps the weight of the sight more centered in the bow. This is the first time Bear has used this technology. New IMS Arrow Rest Mount -Bear is utilizing the QAD IMS riser mount system for the arrow rest for the first time AND on a bow in this price point. Allows you to use the new Trophy Ridge Propel limb driven rest as well as any IMS rest. New Vibration Dampers -Riser has rubber vibration dampers on both ends of the riser as well as continuing to use Killerwave limb dampers but the real show stopper here is the new string stop which is a massive upgrade from before. New Lower Rear Stabilizer Mount A big upgrade here to go from a machined hole before to now having an actual bushing for a side bar bracket. Who Is This Bow For? "For me, the Persist is perfect for whitetail hunters anywhere it's draw length range. This bow packs on alot of features, especially to mount the sight and rest, that truly make this bow the same level bow as any other flagship which is awesome to see. The capability to dial in your let-off to what you like really is excellent."
