so go shoot the new PSE bows, its unlikely you would break one. Hell I have 1 X-force now and want 2 of the new ones to go with it. Try out every bow you can get your hands on, most new bows are pretty tuff no matter who made them. Anyway I think you'll like a new PSE. Good luck

My suggestion of new 2010 bows would be the Hoyt contender with 3000 limbs.
I'm 6'3" with a 31"dl and really favor the longer bows. You didn't mention your dl but I'm guessing it is hovering around 32". If that is the case you are going to be very limited in choices right out the door.
Good luck and welcome to the furum.

I am 6'7" my DL is 32.75 measured and I shoot a 32" to the string with a 3/4" d-loop. Hoyt has more bows models than anyone that will go long dl's. Just because you are tall does not mean you need a long draw. I shoot a 37" ATA anything shorter and it looks like I am shooting a kids bow. Here I am shooting my Elite at 37" ATA and 32" dl:
Here I am shooting a 33" ATA with a 2 1/2" d-loop:
I have shot PSE, Bowtech, Hoyt, NBA, Alpine and I prefer Elite bows, the ones that go to the long 31"+ dl's are the XXL, XLR and the 2006 Energy line. Again that is what I shoot, try them for yourself, PSE is a great bow and what I started with, Hoyt is another as is Bowtech. Try them out and find what you like. I would look for something that is in the 37"+ ATA and start from there, if you are shooting 3D or Indoor then the longer ATA I do not have a problem hunting with one that has a 36"+ ATA.
