    After reading the hype on the new X Force, and seeing it in action on the web, looks like I'm in the market for a new bow. Hard to ignore 330+ on a 60# bow and a 28" draw. I currently shoot a 28" draw at 56# and I'm getting 280fps with a 290gr arrow. I can't imagine shooting an arrow at 330fps and still being IBO legal. Problem is, which bow to give up. Think i'll get an order in on one today. Mommy's probably not going to be very happy

    the bow has been tested vigorously !! the bow was basically put through a torture test... shot time after time.......... ect...
    I feel they wont have any limb issues with it. Thought like any new bow that is a one of a kind. Might have a few quirks at first. Our shop is going to be one of the 1st to get one. by next week we were told. And I'm going to set one up and shoot it against the Elite Synergy. Which is claiming same speeds.
    And if I like it enough. I will get one and try out for 3d?

    Cool... I saw the pics of the one I bought and that color looks cool. I'm loving to see it for real.

    I could see a pink bow hanging from the bicycle hook in my garage... But it would likely not belong to me...
    :laugh: :hug:

    Got one on order. Should be in around the end of apr. Can't wait to get my hands on it. If I can control it, should be one heck of a 3D bow. Can't imagine shooting out to 35 yds on one pin. Outa be a real trip. Only issue was getting it in a target color. Seems PSE is trying to polish the risers. If it works out there gonna have em in blue orange and grey. Won't know for two weeks. Think I might stay with camo so I can hunt with it. The prestige is a little noisy and I think it'll be hard to take the Trykon and leave all that penetration power setting at home. Time will tell

    Got the bow Friday. Sweet bow. The Mathews rest is really nice too. I have a little vane clearance problem but a bit of a nock adjustment should fix it.
    Shot like crap Sunday... Just as expected, however it will take a little time to get used to shooting 60 arrows in a session and getting used to this bow.

    I have heard of several people having vane clearance issues with that rest.

    Yes, I had to really move the nock clockwise looking from the nock end several degrees... I did fix the problem though. That bow shoots really well. Now all I need to do is get the idiot shooting it used to it and more consistent. I do think I'm going to like the indoor 5 spot shooting. Nice people and fun, even though I shot like crap... Still a bit sore from 10-12+60 arrows in one sitting though. I shot a few arrows tonight in the yard and had to stop and grab a beer to 'stretch out'... Not a bad thing but I need to shoot more during the week to be comfortable for the 5 spot league. It's a learning experience for me.
