PSE Bow Madness 30 Review

The Bottom Line: PSE really designs a bow to match the needs of every shooter. The PSE Bowmadness 30, although a bit on the short side for some, will be perfect for others looking into a shorter axel to axel hunting bow for 2015. The simplistic based performance offered with the hybrid cam system will be wonderful for those wanting the most out of their bow without the trade off a a harsh draw cycle and an unforgiving brace height. As with any Mainline series bow, there are a few technologies not included, but PSE has done a great job with everything the Bowmadness 30 has to offer all for a price less than $500...read full review

PSE Bow Madness 34 Review

The Bottom Line: PSE is known for offering something for every shooter. The Bowmadness 34 is not necessarily a budget bow, but it fits comfortably in between a beginners model and the flag ship models. Those looking to upgrade, or just wanting a really high quality bow without the price tag will find a lot to like about the Bowmadness 34. It shoots great, can be used for hunting or 3D, and has an MSRP of $699. It is really hard to find anything wrong with the 2015 PSE Bowmadness 34...read full review

PSE Dominator Max MD Review

The Bottom Line: The 2015 PSE Dominator Max MD is a redesign of the Dominator. The Centerlock limb pockets and the Fourth Generation X-Tech limbs, combined with the Mini Evo cams make this a very accurate and fast bow for the competition shooter. The shorter power stroke and the smooth draw make it very shootable, and the new polymer backstop for a solid back wall only enhance the comfort and feel of this bow. The Dominator Max MD only offers the shooter two peak weight limb sets - 50# and 60# - which reduced some of the capability as far as weight range goes, but the increased accuracy makes up for it. This bow is worth a look for anyone looking for a competition rig...read full review

PSE Premonition HD Review

The Bottom Line: For the price point of under $600, it will be difficult to find a compact bow with the exceptional speed the Premonition HD has. PSE is the leader in speed, and they are able to offer speed in price ranges where it is generally not as popular. The compact design and ease of adjustment makes the bow a great one for shooters with a little growing left. The Stiletto finish option also makes the bow wonderful for female shooters as well. For a hunting bow, the Premonition is hard to look past, especially for those wanting something smaller. Although the Premonition HD does not have all the bells and whistles other Pro Series bows have, it still utilizes great technology and engineering...read full review

PSE Bow Madness 32 Review

The Bottom Line: The Bowmadness 32 is a great bow! Unfortunately, with a $599 price tag, and it being sold in a variety of box stores, the 32 may not get the attention it deserves from those interested in a new hunting bow. Granted, there are some missing features shooters could get with a Pro Series bow, but from a performance stand point, PSE did not cut any corners on the Bowmadness 32. Those looking to upgrade to a feature loaded rig will feel great about purchasing the PSE Bowmadness 32 and experiencing what engineered performance feels like...read full review

PSE Source HD Review

The Bottom Line: PSE is great at offering bows for every shooter regardless of their personal preferences. The Source HD is a high let off hunting bow designed with a having a smooth draw cycle in mind. A longer axel to axel measurement of 33-inches and a 7-inch brace height makes the bow pretty forgiving as well. The Source HD is also one of the most affordable Pro Series bows PSE offers for 2015. Although other Pro Series offerings have some added features, like the Flex guard or higher quality factory strings, for $699, the Source HD is a great value and should be what many shooters are looking for...read full review

PSE Decree HD Review

The Bottom Line: PSE shooters have wanted a longer axel-to-axel bow with higher let off like the Decree HD for some time now. It is no secret PSE knows speed, and the HD shooting 342 feet per second is a great number for the specifications and how great the bow draws. PSE did a nice job listening to what shooters want and delivering in one complete package. The Decree HD does everything shooters would demand from it, with the security of knowing the new rig is top notch in every way...read full review

PSE Dream Season Decree Review

The Bottom Line: High performance bows like the PSE Decree often do not get a fair shot in terms of head to head comparisons because most people feel bows set at the same draw weight are equal. Cams like the Inertia Cams with more of an aggressive feel allow shooters to drop significantly in draw weight and still maintain the same speed. It may be worthwhile for those comparing the Decree to other models for each rig to be set to the same speed instead of the same draw weight to get a true sense of what the Decree's performance. The Decree is a great bow for PSE and will be the option of choice for many hunters in the fall. The energy produced by the Decree is outstanding for a high performance bow, and the draw cycle although stiff, really feels great after adjusting. For 355 feet per second, the PSE Decree's small frame and lightweight design make it a wonderful option for a hunting bow...read full review

PSE DNA SP Review

The Bottom Line: In the eyes of many, the DNA SP is an improvement on the popular DNA of 2013. The smoother draw force curve combined with amazing speeds is sure to be what many shooters want to go for 2014. With tons of customization options not only for finish options, tunability options, the DNA SP is a great hunting bow offered in 2014, and should be one of the most popular bows of the year...read full review

PSE Full Throttle Review

The Bottom Line: Speed bows do not get the attention they deserve for the simple reason they are not giving a fair shot. Most shooters are going to walk in to a pro shop, take the Full Throttle off the shelf and test it out set at the same poundage as the bow they have at home, and walk out of the store complaining at how overpriced and hard to draw it is. Unfortunately, those shooters are missing the biggest advantage of shooting a speed bow, and that is the option to significantly decrease the draw weight and maintain the same solid performance. Shooters seriously interested is trying out the speed demon Full Throttle should have the speed of all the bows they are considering set the exact same and shoot them that way. Of course a Full Throttle is going to draw a bit differently than other bows, it is shooting 20 feet per second faster than most other fast bows on the market. Realistically, the Full Throttle can be shot 10-15-pounds lighter than what shooters are used to and still shoot the same speed. The Full Throttle is a great shooting bow in all areas, and deserves a test shot...read full review

PSE Premonition Review

The Bottom Line: For $699, the Premonition is a great bow at a decent price. With a ton of PSE's latest and greatest technology, the Premonition is a shooter with the engineering to back it up. For those on the market for a compact hunting bow with great speed, the Premonition is going to be hard to beat. The solid back wall and endless adjustment options with the Source cam add to the appeal of the bow as well. It would be nice for a wider draw weight range for this bow to appeal to more shooters, but with 5 1/2- inches of adjustment, and 30-pouunds of draw weight range, the Premonition will still meet the needs of most shooters...read full review

PSE Source Review

The Bottom Line: The Source bow following is comparable to the Vendetta following of a few years ago. Like the Vendetta, the Source is not a flagship bow, and in fact has arguably two or three more highly sought after bows in the PSE line up above it with the Full Throttle, DNA SP, and perhaps the DNA. With that being said, the Source takes great speed, a longer axel to axel measurement, and a 7-inch brace height and adds a cam system that is easy to pull while maintaining solid performance and winds it up into one reasonably priced package. Shooters will have to look hard to find something wrong with the Source bow, but those wanting a little longer axel to axel model with some extra brace height are sure to love what the Source is all about...read full review

PSE Verge Review

The Bottom Line: The Verge coupled with the Mini Drive cams make this bow a perfect rig for a combination of smooth and powerful. There are not many bows designed for shorter draw shooters, but the Verge is and it does a nice job adding performance to the draw length segment of 22-27-inches. With easy adjustment, and plenty of speed, the bow has the ability to grow with younger shooters, or just work for those wanting a compact bow with a shorter draw length. Perhaps best of all, the Verge sells for the low price of only $549. With all things considered, it is hard to fine much wrong with the Verge from PSE, as it is a solid addition to the Pro Series lineup...read full review

PSE Drive Review

The Bottom Line: PSE has produced a compact bow with a forgiving brace height of 7.5-inches capable of 326 feet per second with hunters in mind. Going against the lightweight bow trend, the Drive's 4.6-pound weight will be welcomed by some and rejected by others. The bow is as silent and shock free as they come, and holds on target like a much longer bow. With tons of customization options straight from the factory at an extremely affordable price, the Drive is hard to overlook for shooters wanting a new hunting bow...read full review

PSE X-Force Dream Season DNA Review

The Bottom Line: PSE has never offered a bow this compact, lightweight, and fast. The Drury brothers know hunting, and it is obvious they had a say in creating this bow. Shooters on the market for a high performance speed bow with desirable hunting characteristics should give the DNA a chance. Customization is almost endless with tons of factory options available. The draw may be a little stiff at first, and the 70% let off may take some time to get used to, but after shooting them a while, shooters will have no issues with either of these characteristics. 352 feet per second is fast, and that speed will all but eliminate any errors in judging the distance in the field. Shooters interested in a new hunting bow should take a long look at the PSE DNA...read full review

PSE Prophecy Review

The Bottom Line: A single cam producing 340 feet per second is worth a test shot even if speed is not the most desirable thing. The Prophecy features some great technology for a mainline bow and should appeal to those interested in a new hunting bow for 2013. The ease of adjustability without a press or needing to buy parts makes the bow user friendly and easy to work on for those who like to tweak. The draw is a little more aggressive than other single cams, and it may take some time to get used to the 75% let off as compared with the 80% most bows come with. However, hunters owe it to themselves to give this bow a shot, especially for the $699 price tag...read full review

PSE Freak Review

The Bottom Line: Long draw shooters do not have many options available to them. Most options available are a redesign of old technology that is made to work for long draw shooters. PSE designed the Freak specifically to meet the needs of long draw shooters. Although shooters interested in a longer axel to axel target bow may be drawn to the Freak as well, shooters who will be most interested are those with a draw length over 30-inches. The smooth draw, forgiving brace height, and long riser makes this a great bow and a sweet shooter...read full review

PSE Mini Burner Review

The Bottom Line: The PSE Mini Burner XT is an upgrade to an older youth bow, but offers more draw length adjustment, and the option of a 50# limb set, which equals about 10 fps more. Although PSE offers this rig with the option of 20#, 29#, 40#, and 50# limbs, the 50# limb set offers draw weight adjustments from 10# - 50#, making it the best value overall. The bow can be set to approximately 4# draw weight with the 20# limbs, but the string is has almost no tension on it. With a 26 1/2" ATA, 7 1/2" brace height, and a lot of adjustability, this is a very nice bow to start the youngster out on. Set at 50# draw weight and 28" draw length, this "youth" bow can send an arrow downrange at a very nice 276 fps...read full review

PSE X-Force Hammer Review

The Bottom Line: The Hammer is a great looking bow that is fun to shoot and competitively priced at $750. Those shooters interested in a speed bow with a little longer brace height will love the Hammer's EVO platform and smooth draw cycle. With sppeds up to 327 feet per second IBO, tons of cam adjustability, and great looking finish options, shooters should give this Hammer a try. Despite a little handshock, and a slightly heavy overall bare bow weight of 4.2 pounds, the Hammer is a definite contender for shooters wanting a hunting bow that can double as a 3d shooter on the weekends...read full review
