The Vendetta XS is a high quality and great shooting bow that has been specifically designed for shooters looking for a lightweight and highly maneuverable bow. Being accurate and fast, this bow is ideal for tree stand or blind hunting. With its very adjustable and extremely smooth drawing eccentric system, the Vendetta XS has a modest price tag and, as a result, is a great value for money.
PSE's new and highly adjustable L6 Cam system powers the Vendetta XS to advertised IBO speeds reaching upwards of 330 FPS. Many experts and archers say this is a very impressive and efficient eccentric system. With a unique design, this system is a mix of hybrid and single cam systems: the top cam looks somewhat like an idler wheel. However the top cam is not an idler wheel and functions differently to deliver high performance and exceptionally smooth draw cycle. Also, this eccentric system is very adjustable: no bow press or new cams/modules are required to adjust the draw length from 24.5 to 30.5 inches. The let-off is 75%.
Draw cycle / Shootability / Quietness
We were overwhelmed with the amount of extremely positive feedback indicating the Vendetta XS is a great shooting rig. Firstly, this bow is extremely smooth to draw as noted by many shooters. This is quite impressive given this bow is so fast. Moreover, the Vendetta XS has a solid back wall, balances very well, and aims nicely. At just 3.8 pounds and measuring 29.5 inches from axle to axle, the Vendetta XS is a pretty lightweight and highly maneuverable bow. While a bare bow could be a bit quieter, installing a stabilizer and other silencing components will definitely make this bow one of the best shooting rigs in 2010.
Great bow for tree stand and blind hunting
With its short AtA length (29.5") and high IBO speeds (up to 330 feet per second), the Vendetta XS is a great rig for tree stand and blind hunting. We totally agree with those shooters who say the Vendetta XS is a fantastic short hunting bow due to its great shootability characteristics, fast speeds, and high accuracy.
Some archers agree the stock strings on the Vendetta XS could be of better quality. While you can still get great life out of the factory strings, many people say they just get a better quality set once the original strings are worn.
Value for money
Many hunters strongly agree this high quality rig is underpriced and is a great value for money. With a very reasonable price tag, the Vendetta XS is as good (or even better) as some of its more expensive competitors with similar shootabilty characteristics and specs.
To summarize, the Vendetta XS is a top quality and great shooting rig with very adjustable and extremely smooth drawing eccentric system. With a solid back wall, this bow is balanced well and aims easily. While a bare bow could have less vibration, when fully equipped this bow is a great shooter. Many experts firmly believe this is one of the best shooting bows introduced in 2010. Designed specifically for hunters looking for a lightweight and highly maneuverable bow, this rig is ideal for tree stand and blind hunting. While it's a high quality rig, the Vendetta XS has a very reasonable price tag and is a great value for money.
