Default thoughts on a PSE compound bow

just got this waiting for delivery PSE Phaser 2 compound bow. reasons I chose this was the adjustments (and price) for this bow. It is advertised as adjustable 40-80 lbs. and 23"- 33" pull. So I believe I can set this up for me and my wife for target shooting, Son already has a Parker compound. this is rated with a lighter draw and can go 20 lbs higher than his... got it for 110 plus 18 shipping... What ya think?

you get what ya pay for. you will find out that bow is not very forgiving , shocky , and tuff to get the feel of ..all PSE bows have a terriable back wall and IMO are the worst bows ,and i have shot and almost everything and i only buy what is comfortable . I have had 5 mathews bows and thought they were the cats ***, but now i shoot bowtech because they seemed to be a better feel in the 2010 models. but i cant really comment to much becuase all my bows have about 1200 in them not 110. but let us knoww how it is .

OK good thoughts. figured at that price, I had to take a chance. and Yes, I would feel better going to the shop and having a bow matched to me. I also realize my wife also would need something different. BUT hopeing I can set this up for both of us. that is why the wide range of adjustments appealed to me. We'll see, what I paid, I lost last night at the casino anyway!

if you plan on having the 2 of you use it its not just crank it down ...no no you have to re-sight in all the pins on the sight ect...once you set it up to your liking lock it in ..if you then set it to her and shes done then you have to re-set it again ...lost time and $$ on that .
if she is wanting a womens bow look into the new mathews passion its made for women and from what i saw from the show its a great bow for women

lose of money?? this isn't something I can do at the range? hummm Was hoping I could set it so she could use it and leave it there, I would shoot it at her settings... Just something for us to have while at the range and have our son shoot also. he has his own, and we would use this. Until either she 10 gets tired of shooting adn I would set it for me or 2) she really like is, gets her own adn I would set it for me! lol

I have a PSE F4 maxis and I really like the bow. I have had it for about 8 yrs now and it still shoots good.

I got the bow a couple of weeks ago. Brought it to a local shop and we were able to tune it as light of a draw as possible. Got it down to 35 LBS and still too strong for my wife. Looks like a new mathews genisis is in her future. As far as the PSE. it is over 20 years old. Was able to get a stabelizer and peep site installed. Since the wife cannot use it, I tightened it down to 42 lbs and have my sights dialed in. So much so my son is jealous that I can get double bullseyes and we are still sighting his in. It is bigger than his. 50% longer. and there are no more upgrades I can do. For what I want, i like it and see a lot of fun target shooting with it. think it was much better than goin gout and spending over 500 for a bow I am getting the same enjoyment from a 100 bow. I feel no bad shock after shooting... actually, it is really smooth.
