Bowtech Convergence Review

The Bowtech Convergence offers a full 10 inches of draw length and 62 pounds of draw weight adjustability. Designed to be versatile enough for anyone while being mindful of budget constraints.

Drawing on design elements from the Realm and Carbon Icon with adjustability characteristics of the Diamond Edge SB1, the Convergence utilises many features to end up in a high performing, fast economically priced unit.

The Bowtech Convergence uses the same riser as the Diamond Edge SB-1 and Edge 320. It shares the same cam system as the Bowtech Realm series.

Where does it fit in the lineup? Bowtech has marketed this as their price point offering right in the middle as a budget option with lots of features.

Comparatively, I feel the other price point bows from major bow manufacturers offer a slightly better bang for your buck.

However, there is a lot to like about the Bowtech Convergence.

Bow Setup

As with all Bowtech bows, the finish on the Convergence was outstanding. The solid black riser and limbs make for a sleek looking bow.

Additionally, it makes it easy to accessorize a non-camo bow. The orange QAD Ultra Rest added a splash of color along with the limb dampeners.

After tying in a peep sight it was time to install the accessories.

From there, we began the tuning process. The Bowtech Convergence is a binary cam bow meaning all lateral adjustments must be completed by moving the rest. After a few shots I had a nice bullet hole through the paper.

However, I did need to make a small adjustment toward the riser. Factory center shot on the Bowtech Convergence is 13/16. There are several reasons why I may have needed to make this change.

Most likely explanation in this scenario was a grip issue. AKA it was me. You may not have to do the same to get your Convergence perfectly tuned.

Vibration was minimal on the shot and the bow seemed quiet, especially when shooting outdoors. With its short 30 inch ATA measurement, I found the Convergence to be very maneuverable. This would make it a great choice for both a treestand or ground blind.

Bowtech Convergence vs Carbon Icon

Budget minded? Both of these Bowtech bows fall into a certain price range that is very appealing to archers.

The specs are even similar. Both sport a 7 inch brace height. The Carbon Icon is half an inch shorter in axle to axle length and 5 feet per second faster with its 335 IBO rating.

When new, the Carbon Icon is tagged at $649 while the Bowtech Convergence price is $679.

The Carbon Icon is lighter, the Convergence is newer. What would sway archers to pick one over the other?

I can’t speak for everyone but I can tell you where the difference lies for me.

While the Bowtech Convergence offers more technological advances than the Carbon Icon, it is missing the one I deem most important.

The Convergence is based off the Realm series of compound bows. However, the Deadlock Cam System. However, its missing from the Convergence. If I was buying a 2019 Bowtech I would want the newest cam tuning ability they have to offer.

Including that technology may have bumped it out of the price point Bowtech was targeting.

I’d save a little money and save some weight (nearly a pound) and pick up the Bowtech Cabon Icon over the Convergence.

Final Thoughts

The Bowtech Convergence offers a lot of adjustability for archers. But is that something you need?

It’s unlikely that an adult would need such a wide draw weight range. Even new archers should be able to narrow down what they need from a bow.

All that adjustability comes at a cost though. This makes Convergence is an expensive bow for a growing child.

If that’s the case, I believe there are other options that offer you the same features for less money. It’s a solution looking for a problem.

Because of that, I wouldn’t specifically seek out this compound bow. Versatile enough for anyone but built for no one.

If you’re searching for a budget compound bow, here are my two recommendations. For an adult, find an Elite Terrain. It was named the 2023 best value bow of the year, and for good reason.

For a child that hasn’t finished growing and needs an adjustable compound bow to grow with them, there are several options.

As mentioned earlier, the Convergence shares the same riser as the Diamond Edge 320. Conveniently, it’s nearly $200 cheaper. I’d start there. See how it fits your child and if it’s something that will grow with them as they increase their accuracy and start chasing whitetails.
