PSE Ferocity Review

The Bottom Line: The Ferocity is a nice shooting compact bow. The Ferocity binary cam system delivers everything newer archers want in a hunting bow, has a great deal of draw weight and draw length adjustability, and is affordable for just about anyone wanting to get started. The Ferocity is priced extremely well at on $449, and can be fully set up from the factory two different ways to provide shooters everything they need right out of the bow to start shooting. PSE has really delivered again creating a bow that checks a ton of highly sought after hunting bow specifications, while keeping the final price cheaper fully set up than a bare flagship bow. It is very hard to find anything wrong with this bow. For those on the market for a compact hunting bow, without the need to have the latest and greatest riser technology, the 2018 PSE Ferocity should be on the list of bows to test shoot before deciding which one is right...read full review

PSE React Review

The Bottom Line: The React bow is a great value at $799. Shooters are getting the Evolve Cam System, in a high let-off, long brace height package for hunters wanting the best feeling draw cycle without breaking the bank. there are some compromises in regards to the riser technology, but there is nothing subpar, just less advanced engineering. For those wanting a new hunting bow at a more reasonable price point, there may not be a better value in 2018 than the PSE React. This bow truly competes with the Pro Series models featuring this cam system, has optimal hunting specifications, and feels really good in hand. It is one of the lightest, highest performing aluminum riser bows in the PSE lineup. It shoots unbelievably well, and will make a ton of shooters very happy this year...read full review

PSE Xpedite Review

The Bottom Line: Speed sells, and when packaged with such great features like the Xpedite, it should be even easier to sell. 360 feet per second is marketable to a large audience of hunters, and 360 feet per second with the Evolve Cam System is marketable to even more than speed freaks. This cam draws super smooth, has a favorable feel, and is adjustable in every way possible with a bow press. 25% of let off adjustment while being around the 350 feet per second mark and higher is insane, and the feel is the same familiar feel as the Evolve from last year. The brace height may be a little short, but anything lost in forgiveness because of a shorter brace height is arguably made up with the quicker speeds. The 4.4-pounds is a touch heavier than some other similar sized aluminum bows, but in the end ounces are more than likely not going to make or break a decision. The MSRP tag of $1099, is expensive, but that is how much high quality bows from a solid company cost in 2018. The pros far outweigh the cons for anyone in the market for an impressive shooting speed bow. Anyone looking for a 360 feet per second speed rated bow, or a shooter wanting to fling the heaviest arrow possible while still maintaining as much speed as possible should take a long serious look at what the Xpedite offers. This PSE bow is insane...read full review

PSE Carbon Air Stealth EC Review

The Bottom Line: This is a great bow, and will win over a ton of faithful followers after getting a chance to spend some time on the range with one. The largest downside to the Carbon Air Stealth is going to be the $1500 price tag. Is it worth the extra money? For some shooters, it absolutely will be. Unfortunately, for other shooters, the price alone is going to make it a no go for them. The Evolve Cam System on such a lightweight carbon riser makes this rig the ultimate hunting bow though. With almost the perfect specifications for an overwhelming majority of the hunting community, and the ability to make so many customizations to the feel of the draw cycle, the PSE Carbon Air Stealth is going to be hugely popular for 2018. The grip and the overall looks seem to be polarizing features on the bow as well. However, most shooters will not choose to eliminate a bow based on looks alone, and the grip fits well in the hand of shooters who are willing to adjust to the added girth. Overall, the Carbon Air Stealth is going to be a super popular hunting bow for PSE in 2018...read full review

PSE Phenom XT Review

The Bottom Line: The Phenom XT is a great offering to the target community. Archers just getting started with target shooting may be a bit overwhelmed and sticker shocked to see what some high-end target models sell for. The Phenom XT shoots exceptionally well, and has a suggested retail of only $699, which is less than many hunting rigs. As a target bow, the Phenom's lightweight 4-pound bare bow frame is sure to win over a lot of believers. The balance of that weight is great as well because shooters are able to get stabilizer weight directly where they want it to be without needing to level the bow off first. The Phenom is slow, which may not be a huge deal for indoor spot shooters, but those with aspirations to use this rig as a 3D bow, may need to practice on their yard judgment to eliminate any errors which will not be corrected by fast arrow speeds. It may be slightly disappointing for shooters with a shorter than27.5-inch draw length because the Phenom XT does not dip under that. However, the Phenom SD could be exactly what those shooters are wanting. For a budget friendly target rig, the Phenom XT is exactly what it is advertised to be. For those wanting the latest and greatest target archery technology, the Phenom XT will not be the bow of choice. For those just beginning in archery, wanting a lighter weight target option, or those just not willing to spend big money on a target bow, the Phenom XT is fantastic...read full review

PSE Bow Madness Epix Review

The Bottom Line: The PSE Epix is an amazing bow for any price, but when considering the $599 price tag, the Epix is exceptional. It features all the specifications shooters want in a mid sized hunting bow with 340 feet per second arrow speeds, 80% let-off, 4-pound bare bow weight, and tons of technology that adds to the great feel. 2017 gives PSE some new advances in technology, which are not featured on the Epix. However, the technology used is still well thought out and performs great. Left-handers are going to be disappointed, but the right-handed shooters will love what the Epix offers. For a budget friendly hunting bow, the Epix deserves a test shot and an honest consideration for anyone on the market for a new bow in 2017...read full review

PSE Beast EXT Review

The Bottom Line: Simply put, the 2016 PSE Beast EXT was perfectly named. The bow matches everything shooters with a draw length out to 33-inches would want. The frame is long, the weight is heavy, the looks are aggressive, the arrows hit hard, and the customization of the cams is not something longer draw archers are used to having available to them. For anyone 28-33-inches, the Beast EXT would make a wonderful target rig. For shooters over 31-inches, the Beast is an additional bow in a market that has very limited choices. When mixed with the ability to make tons of adjustments on the draw cycle, PSE has really hit a homerun on the Beast EXT and what it has to offer for its target audience. Those really wanting a new target rig, or long draw shooters sick of squeezing into a bow not designed for them will have a lot to think about when looking through the 2016 models. The MSRP of $999 is a bit pricey, but it is also the going rate for bows with this much technology and incorporated engineering. The Beast EXT shoots great, looks good, and customizes giving every shooter a bunch of options...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 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 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 Brute Force Lite Review

The Bottom Line: The Brute Force Lite is a solid hunting bow. After looking at the price tag, it becomes one of the best values on the market for a compact hunting bow. It should appeal to brand new shooters, shooters with some growing left to do, or those just looking for a bow a bit easier on the shoulders. The MH cam system won a lot of people over last year, and the use on several models in 2017 really shows how great of a system it is overall. The Brute Force does not feature any of its own exclusive technology, but for those wanting a bow for $449, there is not much else on the market that compares to how high quality this thing is. Shooters looking for a low cost, high performance, well thought out hunting bow should give the Brute Force Lite a try. It even has some package options straight from the factory worth looking into as well...read full review

PSE Infinity Review

The Bottom Line: The Infinity is a great bow, which looks like other PSE models. For a budget-friendly entry bow, the high let-off, forgiving brace height, and compact design is comparable to what many demand in a hunting bow. Shooters must purchase the bow in one of two package options, which should be fine for most beginning archers just looking to get started. With a $499 or $599 price tag depending on which accessory kit chosen, shooters should feel great about the kind of bow they are getting for the price they are paying. The single cam is a nice feeling cam system overall, but 325 feet per second is pretty slow for 2017 standards. All things considered, the Infinity is a wonderful option for those just getting started in hunting with archery equipment. The adjustment options make this a great mid range youth model as well. The Infinity does not feature any new PSE technology, but is hard to beat for those on a tight budget...read full review

PSE Carbon Air 32 ECS Review

The Bottom Line: The Carbon Air 32 ECS is the ultimate carbon riser hunting bow from PSE. It is lightweight, compact, high performing, easy to shoot, and packed with the latest technology PSE has to offer. Everything about this bow is great for those on the market for a hunting bow. However, the price tag is massive, and will more than likely cause shooters to choose another bow. For $1499, shooters could easily purchase two more budget friendly rigs, or completely outfit the aluminum riser Evolve, which features almost identical specifications aside from the riser material. It is a shame to see the price so high on a bow that so many shooters would purchase at a lower price. With that being said, carbon is a more expensive product, and with that comes a premium price. Shooters with an unlimited budget, and the need to have carbon, will find the Carbon Air 32 ECS is a great bow...read full review

PSE Phenom SD Review

The Bottom Line: The Phenom SD should appeal to a lot of shooters on the market for a target bow. Shooters with a limited budget, weaker shoulders, or short draw folks should really give this bow an honest look. It lacks some of the technology PSE has to offer for 2017, but nothing about the bow feels like a budget bow, and it shoots very well. From a specification stand point, the Phenom SD is comparable to many high end models, and the $699 price tag gives shooters just starting out in the target archery game a lot of room to add the necessary accessories to be competitive. It would be nice to see a heavier limb choice, but 50-pound limbs on an indoor bow will do just fine. Overall, the deflexed riser Phenom SD is a solid performing bow at a great price. Shooters wanting to get a lighter weight target bow, those just getting started in the target world, or those not able to afford a target bow over $1000 should be stoked to have such a wonderful option available for only $699...read full review

PSE Xpression 3D Review

The Bottom Line: 3D archery is becoming more intense every year in regards to competition and the folks working to fine tune their skills are getting better and better. The Xpression 3D is going to eliminate all excuse a shooter may have for not becoming a better shooter. This bow is designed to offer shooters some customization and adjustment, a perfect tune, and specifications that are almost perfect on paper. In hand, the Xpression 3D feels and looks elite and shooters are able to make it into exactly what they desire. For the serious 3D shooter, PSE really has a bow worth looking into with the Xpression 3D. Of course, a bow like this is going to come with a premium price, and the Xpression 3D MSRP of $1399 is exactly that. However, anyone wanting a bow that will leave out all excuses and leave the end results up to the shooter, the Xpression 3D is a hard bow to pass up...read full review

PSE Xpression Review

The Bottom Line: The 2016 Xpression is a great target bow and has a lot of features catering towards shooters being able to get a fully set up bow to truly match their shooting style and preferences. The Xpression is direct competition to the Dominator, which many shooters have grown to love, so it may be a hard sell for some to give up their trusted bow for a newly designed one. Those wanting a high-end target model with lots of adjustment should take a hard look at the Xpression. The look of the riser design may be off putting to some, but others are going to love how unique it is and how well it functions overall. For shooters toeing the line and expecting to stand on the podium, the Xpression should get a serious consideration. Although the MSRP of $1399 is competitive in the target archery world, it is still fairly expensive for many shooters. With that being said, it is a complete redesign from the old target lineup and many will argue well worth the expensive price tag...read full review

PSE Inertia Review

The Bottom Line: PSE has really packed a great deal of technology into the $799 price tag of their 2016 Inertia bow, which shooters of all abilities will truly appreciate. For those wanting a compact hunting bow with exceptional performance, the Inertia is certainly worth a test shot. The designed ability to tweak the back wall feel of the bow is well received by shooters because it allows them to be more conscious of the specifications they like rather than the back wall feel, since the Inertia allows for that to be fully customized. Some shooters may not like the idea of possibly needing to drop down in draw weight to feel more comfortable with the stiff draw cycle. However, with the exceptional performance of the bow, dropping down even 10 full pounds will more than likely still outperform the bow shooters are replacing at a heavier draw weight. Although some may think of this as a negative, it should not be because lower draw weight is easier to manage and if it still outperforms at a lighter poundage, it is an upgrade all around. The Inertia is a great hunting bow, and for the price, it should be on the list of many shooters to try out for 2016...read full review

PSE Carbon Air Review

The Bottom Line: The Carbon Air is not the first carbon bow from PSE, but it is the most recent, and probably the only known carbon bow from PSE. Many shooters on the market today would have no recollection of the 1996 PSE carbon design, but it is fair to mention PSE is not just joining the party in regards to the benefits. The HD cams are a very popular system for PSE, and the 340 feet per second speed rating is a good performance point to be in the carbon riser market. Forum members are begging PSE for a carbon bow that is even faster or having a longer axel to axel, but for a new carbon bow, the Carbon Air is a great compromise of all specifications. It is worth noting again $1499 is a steep price for many shooters, but the Carbon Air shoots well enough, and is marketed toward enough shooters it will do very well in the premium hunting bow market. Although some testers will notice a slight vibration if shooting the Carbon Air without any accessories, try the rig fully set up in order to give it a fair shot...read full review

Consider the bare bow price of only $450, and it is very difficult for shooters to not give the Brute Force an honest shot at being their new hunting bow. PSE is known for making high quality bows at a variety of price points for different shooters, and the Brute Force is the latest example of that. Those wanting a short axel-to-axel bow really need to give this bow a try.

PSE Phenom DC Review

The Bottom Line: PSE has introduced the Phenom DC for two specific types of shooters wanting a new bow. Longer draw archers that want a larger framed bow, and shooters interested in getting started with target archery on a bit of a budget. Target archery is expensive to get into, and will more than likely require a different sight than shooters use for hunting, a different rest, longer stabilizers and weight and perhaps an addition of a side or back bar, different arrows, and more than likely a different release. All of those accessories require some experimentation to get set properly, and it can get fairly pricey. PSE knows this, and producing a budget friendly bow with the Phenom DC is a perfect idea. For an MSRP of $699, the Phenom DC is literally half the price of some other target bows on the market for 2016. Consider how well the Phenom DC shoots, how easily it tunes, and its ability to be used for any style of archery and PSE clearly has a winning design worth a test shot. The Phenom DC is a heck of a deal, and will allow many shooters to get into target archery for a relatively small price point and still be competitive...read full review
