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

Now go and shoot some critters Andy. Yes, Niel and the gang at Cabin Fever are really good at seeing that you get what you need and that it fits you.

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.

    • I'm down about 35 pounds (315 to 280) in 2 months. I've been doing the Keto ultra low carb diet with a goal of less than 20 grams a day and it has been working well so far. My goal is 225 so I still have a ways to go. 
    • So, losing pressure when off at night and at low speed fishing. Small leaks like Rebel said sounds about right. If it is running fine when at higher rpm's then the fuel pump, fuel flow and carb are keeping up the pressure needed then. The pressure is slowing leaking out some where which has to be a small leak at the diaphragm, fuel line connectors, or fuel pump seals. Good luck.
    • Parity, lots of parity in this league, that is a good thing but it sure makes it tough to win. Cullen has two cups already including last year so I'd be fine with the Sens or Nashville taking the whole thing. 
    • Pinhole or small tear in diaphragm.
    • Looking for ideas of what to check next.  I have a 1991 75hp Mariner outboard and I am losing pressure on my fuel line.  I have to pump the bulb first time out in the morning and then again if I fish in one spot for a while.  If I do not it will bog down on me and may or may not kill.  If I pump the bulb too much while I am bogging down I will partially flood the motor and kill it.  I then have to turn the key for several 15 second bursts or more to start the motor.   I have replace the bulb fuel line twice to make sure I didn't get a bad one the first time.  I also replaced the fuel line from my built in gas tank to where it goes to connect with the bulb gas line.   Does this sound like the fuel pump?  I want to eliminate any cheap fixes that I can before replacing the fuel pump.  I blew a cylinder a few years ago and I assume the carbs were all redone at that time by my guy.   I owned it for the past 20 years and I have only used non oxy fuel.   Any ideas?  Thanks in advance for any help.
    • Preds make it to the finals.  I thought someone said they were the last team in and technically the 16 seed.   Who ever they face in the finals it will be a battle, hope the Sens make it.  But would be nice to see Cullen get a cup.
    • My hunt in WI this past weekend was tough as well.  I found tons of ramps, they grow everywhere in the area we hunted, but zero morels.  I saw a few pheasant backs, but did not pick them as they did not interest me.  
    • I finally just said screw it, so I picked a couple of guys that I thought would do good (Christie, and Rojas) and some over looked guys that have had a little success this year, and were from the area.  Would never had expected Alton Jones Jr, to go from 80 something place on day 1 to the top 12.  Glad he was on my team though
    • Added these for the fry pan to go with some turkey also.  
    • If you haven't planted your tomatoes yet......plant them laying down on their side. Pick off all the branches up to the top.Lay the plant in a trench and cover the stem up to the top. Put a soil pillow under the top. Just be careful not to break the stem (I have). Tomatoes are the only plant that will send out roots from the buried stem. You will wind up with a large root ball to feed the plant. This also puts the roots closer to the surface where the soil is warmer instead of deep where it is cool.
