WHERE HAVE I BEEN?

Stopped in a local sporting goods place last night to check for some 100 grain field tips. I walked by the new PSE bows, and thought man they don't look that different than my bow. I don't keep up with the new products and doubt I will buy a new bow for a long time.

I see their new Full Throttle bow is boasting a 370 fps IBO speed and has a 5-1/4" brace height.

Seems insane to me. The speed is one thing but that bow is 33" ATA and a 5-1/4" brace. Man that thing is compact. I thought my bow was a scorcher aroung 295fps with a hunting arrow, but this thing has got to be around 340 or so.

Anyone shoot this bow? Thoughts? Did they sacrifice smooth shooting, and vibration reduction when they came out with this super speed bow.

What else did I miss in the archery world.

I managed to keep my cool and walk on by, but did walk out with a cool new PSE HAT in Skull works camo.

Re: WHERE HAVE I BEEN?

I hear the Full Throttle is fast, but that small brace is not for me.

The older I get the better I was.

Re: WHERE HAVE I BEEN?

I shot a low brace heigth bow ONE time! The string caught my watch band and tore the watch off my wrist! The buckle ripped my arm open and sent it back with blood splattered on the string and cables!

That was my thought as well. my current bow has a 6 1/4" brace and I thought that was small

Re: WHERE HAVE I BEEN?

I anytime I shoot a bow with a short brace height I do not like it at all. I have not shot the full throttle but have shot some 6" BH bows and they are not for me.

I really prefer around a 7" brace height. My Assassin and Experience are both in this range and I shoot them both well and like them a lot.

Re: WHERE HAVE I BEEN?

I shot the Hoyt AlphaBurner for a year- 6" BH. I really had left and right issues. I prefer 6 3/4 to 7 for a hunting bow, 8" BH for an indoor dot bow!

Wishing I was at camp!

Re: WHERE HAVE I BEEN?

Speed in bows has been selling in bows for over twenty years. And those high end speed bows have the high end prices.
The bow I get is usually faster than the last one, slower than the new best ones and somewhat less expensive.
I'm an old gun hunter and "part time" archer looking for a part time price.
If I was looking for speed I'd just use a 30-06 and go hunt with those during gun season. I understand the speed. It's just those moths in my wallet get real nervous with the new prices.
