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.

    • Probably  Canadian. Appears some zealous border guards kept the rest pf them out.
    • my bird id book says its a spotted towhee,used to be called a rufus sided towhee.  
    • Never claimed they were rocket scientists, and I did say they are terrible at putting garbage in containers. Words are all spelled right, just don't make much sense--must be from over seas.
    • You are right. But there was a whole lot of head scratching from the rest of us.  Here is a tasty sample. Thought I'd put it out here for ya just so you do not think your side is hoarding all the genius.  
    • Yea, highly doubt the calls were for well wishes and almost assuredly  illegal at the time, but doubt anything will be able to be proved. Number and length of calls along with a "no no" will probably be the only thing coming out of the Senate inquiry. Am sure Flynn and if whomever else will be well versed on a non incriminating reply. Hard to take down any high ranking gubmint official, no matter the party. 
    • I can't wait for the hearings.  Lock those filthy pigs up!  Send em all to gitmo, heard they have plenty of room there. So how did all that russian propaganda end up on the dnc server?  Youve got 50 pages of hard evidence for that i bet.
    • Reddit I believe   https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/comments/5i63d1/40_electoral_college_members_demand_briefing_on/db5or6d/?st=iy9h32qk&sh=3f2619dd   There were plenty of criminal things the Clinton team could have been charged with but when the inmates run the asylum the usual rules don't apply.
    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
