My new bow!!

15 posts in this topic

Sorry about all the crying about choosing a new bow. It was all worth it today when I got to go pick it up. A HUGE thumbs up to Neil at Cabin Fever for getting me all setup! He asked if I was sure and when I nodded my head the wheels were in motion. About an hour later I had a new PSE X-Force in 60lb weight with 29" DL, HHA 5019 sight, Ripcord rest and the new Octane stabilizer!!!

Oh man is this thing sweet! I can't wait to get the sight tape on the sight so I can really start using this thing.

A guy at the shop was really interested in my bow so he asked if I would chrono it against his. My bow set at 60lbs with a 390 grain arrow shot 296 FPS!!! crazygringrin Thats 75.89 KE, from a 60lb bow.

Here it is

Read your post the other day and was going to put in my .02. But figured you already had good enough advice. That beeing, go with what suits you, what you are comfortable with. I will have to say i think you made an excellent choice. I just bought the same bow about a month ago. There may be quiter smoother bows out there but this one is pretty darn good considering the performance you get out of it. Give em a few more years and they will come out with a high speed bow that is ultra quiet and smooth. Then we will be buying new ones again. the cycle never ends. Enjoy the new bow. Congrats.

Also, just thought i would share this with you. I have mine set at 70#'s, 29" draw with 440 grn arrows. I am getting 306fps with 91 Ft Lbs of KE. So you have alot of potential for more speed and KE if you ever feel you need it.

Aww [PoorWordUsage] - now he's going to be outshooting me again.

Seriously dude... I'm glad the agonizing is over and you have your new toy. My wife's going to be unhappy when she sees me drooling over new bows though.

Just remember on that HHA sight - ALWAYS CHECK THE TAPE before you get out in the field (remember last time at the range??) smile

A little more tweaking this weekend and I think its locked in. I was having a loud buzz and it turned out the stabilizer was defective. I don't know how long till they can get a new one, but I've got a Vibracheck on there for now. It is much quieter.

I changed modules and am drawing about 28 1/2 right now. Its much more comfortable and I'm more consistent too since I'm not drawing too long.

    • Yep.  We all will.  I already said that.
    • Holy cats!   I mean bullies!
    • Not looking good for The Donald.
    • Yes, good times! There is adventure to be had but it has to be looked for.  Just getting to know the area has been one adventure and now the second one is finding out who plays where when the playing actually starts.    I could've used one of these on Saturday.
    • Trump and Clinton are 'tied' in Minnesota, says poll that's wrong Tuesday, September 27, 2016 by Mike Mullen in News Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are TIED in Minnesota! Can you believe it? Don't!NBC News Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump debated Monday night.    Tuesday morning's conventional wisdom says the debate was long on losers -- Lester Holt, Chicago, the truth -- and produced only one winner: Barron Trump, 10, who is reputed to be "so good with these computers, it's unbelievable."  Ignore the spin. Let's pay closer attention to something tangible, something real. Like this tangible, really bad poll paid for by Breitbart News and believed by no one. Trump and Clinton are in a dead heat in Minnesota, tied 43 percent to 43 percent, according to an "EXCLUSIVE" poll conducted this past weekend. Simultaneous polls in Pennsylvania and North Carolina found Trump tightening on Clinton's leads, with her tiny advantages in both states falling inside the margin of error.  "Minnesota is the perfect example" of Trump's nationwide surge, says pollster Pat Cadell, the spooky-looking punditFox News often wheels out after applying shoe polish to his head. Cadell continued: “Minnesota has been a close state in past elections, even though the Democrats always seem to win it, it was close in 2000 and 2004." This would be a good point. If it weren't a bad point. Those old elections reveal that Democratic candidates, even lame ones, tend to overperform their national average in Minnesota. In 2000, George W. Bush lost the national popular vote, 47.9 percent to Al Gore's 48.4; in Minnesota, Bush got 45.5 percent to Gore's 47.9 percent. (More than 5 percent of Minnesotans voted Ralph Nader.) In 2004, John Kerry won Minnesota with 51 percent to Bush's 47.6. Nationwide, Bush won by 50.7 percent to Kerry's 48.3 percent. Point is: If a Republican managed to win Minnesota, it won't matter, because he'll have won the rest of the country in a landslide.    Here are some fun stories about Gravis Marketing, the polling company that inked an exclusive -- "EXCLUSIVE" -- deal to do Breitbart's polling this campaign season. It seems Gravis has a history of shading results just a liiiiitlebit in favor of flamboyant, Tea Party-style outsiders challenging inside-the-Beltway incumbents. (Scenario sound familiar?) In Kentucky, Gravis had GOP U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell at 48 percent, and his wacky Republican primary opponent at 34 percent; McConnell won 60 percent to 35 percent. In Texas, GOP U.S. Sen. John Cornyn had a 43-28 lead over a fringe-right candidate, whom Gravis described as "gaining." Cornyn won 59-19.  Those blown calls had Slate calling Gravis "the worst poll in America." It gets worse. This year, in Maryland, Gravis conducted a Congressional poll for yet another conservative outsider, and found the right-wing challenger winning 58 percent to the incumbent's 29 percent; in fact, the incumbent won, 78 percent to 11 percent, a difference of 96 percent from what Gravis had.  Probably, Hillary's ahead of Trump by something by something like the results in a recent Star Tribune poll (44 percent to 38 percent) or this week's Survey USA/KSTP results (Clinton 46 percent, Trump 39).  But if Gravis is as wrong as they've been in the past... maybe Clinton's ahead 75-25. Or 92-8! 95-25? Trying to adjust for numbers collected by the wiz kids at Gravis for the mouthbreathers at Breitbart is virtually impossible. Not the sort of math you can do in your head. Quickly, Barron! To the computer!
    • Which side of the rope are you asking about??? The one end is a surgeons loop(with the magnet). The other is just the way I learned as a kid in scouts to quickly secure a rope so that it didn't get tangled up and could quickly be redeployed. Loop it several times to take up the slack. Then wrap the tag end around several times and pass the last few inches back under itself. Pull it snug. When you need to use it just pull the tag end free and unwrap. Don't know that it has a name.?.?.?
