I have two PSE bows, an 07 X-force and an 08 X-force, both are HF cams, 7" BH with 50-60 lb. limbs. I want to stick with the 7" brace height while looking to "flatten" my shots (tighten the 20 and 30 yard pins). I have the 08 turned down all the way and it is pulling 62 lbs. I shot an EVO 7 (60-70 lb.) and while I liked the bow, I <span style="text-decoration: underline">really</span> like the draw cycle on my current X-forces. My draw length is 30.25 and I am considering having 60-70 lb. limbs put on my 08. I have plenty of time to become very comfortable holding more weight and I don't see why limb replacement isn't the smarter way to go than buying a different bow (I like the draw cycle on mine and it has to be less expensive).

Somebody must have went through this before and I am looking for some opinions to help me to make an intelligent decision. I figure that I would keep the 07 at 61 (all I can get out of it) for the late season cold weather (when I have to put on the heavy jacket) to ensure a smooth, comfortable draw and hold but go for a bow with "more punch" for most of the "early season" (Sept, Oct and even Nov here in SE PA are not too cold).

Any insight from past experience would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!

Your best bet would find a good PSE "super tuner" to tune it and get a set of strings for it if you wanna keep the same bow. I'm not to familiar with PSE but you could prolly pick up 10 fps with a tune and strings.

If you wanna bump up to new limbs, go ahead and do it. Should cost you about 100 bucks and will get you another 20+fps @ 70#. There are some guys out there that are really great with PSEs, especially the HFs. Very easy to tune an extra 10 fps out of. Theres a guy named John on archerytalk who goes by the name "breathn". Hes about the best there is when it comes to building and tuning PSEs. 70 lb limbs, new strings, and a tune will run you about $250-300 if I had to guess, and you'll probably pick up 30-40 fps, or the ability to shoot a much heavier arrow at the same speed you're getting now.

bbd!5b and shootbowtech - Thanks for the replies! I have seen the "breathn" praises on archerytalk. I just sent a PM to investigate having him work on it.

No prob. If I was still messing around with those PSEs, Id have you send it to me and I'd take care of it for you, but I got rid of my bow press. I had a 2009 GX7 and loved tinkering with that thing. Squeezed some really great speed out of it...The HFs arent much different.
