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 Sinister Review

The Bottom Line: For $499, shooters interested in a new hunting bow owe their wallets a test shoot of the Sinister. This bow represents everything hunters seem to be interested in and is definitely worth a try. Nothing has been sacrificed to produce this bow, and it proves to be a wonderful hunting option available for 2013. For shooters able to get over the slightly aggressive draw cycle, the Sinister is sure to perform well in the field as a hunting bow...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

PSE Revenge Review

The Bottom Line: The PSE Revenge is a great option for short draw shooters in the market for a hunting bow. The speed from this bow combined with a smooth draw cycle, high end strings, and a relatively inexpensive price tag may entice many shooters in the market for a hunting bow. Although the draw is a little stiff, it is very smooth. The ease of changing draw length without expensive cams or modules and without needing a bow press is a great design that will allow shooters to fine tune their own rigs to fit their shooting needs. Shooters interested in a short axel to axel bow with great speeds have a nice option with the PSE Revenge...read full review

PSE Vendetta Review

The Bottom Line: The Vendetta is not breaking any speed records with 330 feet per second, but those who have shot the Vendetta will rave about its smooth draw cycle. For $699 the Vendetta is a great option at a reasonable price for a Pro Series bow and the technology that comes along with it. The ability for the Vendetta to be used on the range and in the woods may help justify the cost for some as well because this bow will truly do it all. It cannot be overstated that the Drive cams are smooth drawing and the bow is amazing to shoot. This will be the selling point for many shooters interested in a new bow with a forgiving brace height and a longer axel-to-axel measurement...read full review

PSE Bow Madness 3G Review

The Bottom Line: The Bowmadness 3g is very appealing on paper and shoots just as well. The shock free release and IBO speeds of 330 feet per second have a lot to offer all archery shooters. With a long riser and forgiving brace height, the Bowmadness holds very well at full draw and is one of the most shock free bows available in 2012. There may be a few single cam bows with an easier draw cycle, but those interested in speed will be willing to make the trade off. With an MSRP price of $599, it will be hard to find a better shooting bow at a lower price. The 3g performs as well as bows priced much higher. For shooters interested in a truly multipurpose bow that can be used as a target bow as well as a hunting bow may not need to look any further than the Bowmadness 3g...read full review

PSE Rally Review

The Bottom Line: The PSE Rally offers 12 inches of draw length adjustment and up to 52# of draw weight adjustment. The bow comes in a very nice looking Mossy Oak Breakup Infinity making it easy to overlook the fact that it is an entry-level bow. With a 33 3/4" ATA and a 7 1/2" brace height, this rig looks every bit a hunting rig, which it very well can be. The Rally offers a 308 fps IBO, this bow is smooth, easy to draw and hold on target, and is accurate. With the amount of adjustability offered in this rig, it is a very good bow for any beginner and will grow and advance through the various stages of age, growth, and skill levels of the shooter. Just because this bow is marketed as an entry-level bow, that does not mean it should be overlooked...read full review

PSE Stiletto Review

The Bottom Line: The Stiletto proves to be a great option in the limited number of bows designed for female archers. The growing population of females wanting to bow hunt deserves a bow that is designed specifically for them. Although the cute pink look may not be for every female shooter, the bow has tons of really great features making it a great choice. An amazingly smooth draw cycle and very impressive speeds considering the specs, gives this bow a lot of great things to offer. Female archers interested in a hunting bow have very few options available to them specifically. PSE offers a great option with the Stiletto...read full review

PSE Dream Season EVO Review

The Bottom Line: The PSE Dreamseason EVO is a great addition to the already successful X Force line. A bow this smooth is typically much slower; because of this shooters are equipped with a faster bow with more kinetic energy than before without a more extreme draw or added draw weight. With several technology upgrades and the convenience and ease of the adjustable cam, this bow promises to be PSE's flagship bow for 2011. The EVO is not the most inexpensive bow, but many feel the technology upgrades are worth the extra money. The EVO has a very positive following and just may be what PSE is calling, "The Ultimate Hunting Bow." Overall, the EVO would be a great bow for those looking for a fast, balanced, smooth drawing hunting bow that works well in the tree stand or ground blind with the ability to shoot 3d on the weekends...read full review

PSE X-Force Omen Review

The Bottom Line: The PSE X-force Omen Pro is one of the fastest bows on the market today. Improvements to the Omen Pro for 2011 have made a speed bow, with a short brace height, into an accurate shooter. Additionally, the new riser and limb pockets help with accuracy but also make the draw cycle on this bow much smoother than its predecessors. The draw cycle is also enhanced by adjustability to the back wall and valley. The Omen Pro may not be for everyone, beginners may want a slightly more forgiving draw cycle. However the Omen Pro may be perfect for the serious bow hunter and/or 3D shooter requiring the speed to forgive yardage errors...read full review

PSE Chaos One Review

The Bottom Line: The Chaos One is designed to follow in the footsteps of the original Chaos as a top quality bow offering high end technology in a bow designed for teens, women and small framed shooters. Going to the NI Single Cam System gave this rig a very smooth draw cycle that any shooter will enjoy. This helps make it a great bow for beginners just learning to shoot or experienced archers with a short draw length wanting to shoot a bow with all the features of the top, full size, bows. While this bow may cost more than most of its competition, the features and technology packed into the Chaos One justify the price, in fact, making it a bargain for what you get...read full review
