View Full Version : Coming back from shoulder injury... which PSE?

I injured my shoulder a few years ago and I've been shooting a crossbow for the past 2 years. I've been shooting an old 45# recurve to get my strength back up. I think I am ready to go back to a compound and I have always been a PSE fan.

I am a smaller framed shooter. I think my draw length was around 26 - 27" with a release. So what model bow should I be looking at? I would prefer something that starts around 45# but can be turned up as my strength comes back. I was told I might want to consider a youth bow or even a women's bow.

I welcome your suggestions.

The Stinger3G or the Rally would be good choices, the Rally has the most adjustments for draw length and draw weight.

Give us a bit more info about you... what type of shooting do you like to do? Do you prefer speed over forgiveness?

The new drive is an exceptional bow and for 500 dollars very hard to beat. I've shot the drive side by side with the new mathews, mission, hoyt and bear and the drive blows
them all away. Pulling 60 lbs feels like your pulling 50 lbs and with a 7 1/2 bh it's very pleasent on the draw. The drive cams are the best cams out there imo and it also
faster than what ibo states. Not the fastest horse in the corral but rides like a dream. If the dna doesn't blow me away I'll be adding the drive to my collection.

I have shoulder issues as well , bought a Vendetta DC ( drive cam ) for hunting and a Supra Max ( ME cam ) for target , both are smooth and easy to shoot , if for hunting only , depending on ATA you want , the Drive as mentioned or the Vendetta DC = excellent choice , target I would go with the Supra or possibly the Phenom which is 36"s ATA and also has the ME cam which mite be a nice option if you want a 1 bow do everything , hunt- 3D - target , type bow ,

Since you aren't positive of your draw length look at the bows with the mini-EVO cam. It draws fairly smooth and has very good speed. I have a 26" draw and use a 2012 Supra ME for spots and 3D. One of the shorter A-to-A bows might suit you better for hunting. Then Phenom, first cousin to the '12 Supra ME, should be a great do-it-all bow.

Thanks for the replies. I am in the beginning stages of this. Since I also enjoy my tradional stuff I may give that a try too (or maybe I'll have them all??)

Why is the Vendetta considered an "expert" bow? I've been out of the game for some years.... I'm not "expert" at anything any more!
