Need some opinions on which is the smoother bow. PSE AXE 7 OR EVO 7. Dont have the opportunity to shoot the EVO but I have shot the AXE and really like it. Looking for the one that draws the best.

I Own both the Axe 6 and Evo 6,Both are great,I Would buy the Evo if they were side by side..Evo is better in everyway,Just a Bit...Grizz

I'm not going to disagree with Grizz across the board, but I will offer a different opinion.

The 2 do have a different feel. I personally prefer the slightly narrower grip of the Axe handle over the Evo handle. Just a preference thing. I've owned Axe 6 and 7 as well as Evo 6 and 7. I do like the draw of the 2012 style Evo cam better. I have built HF 6 risers with the 2011 and 2012 cams. That is a great shooting bow. I'm certain the Axe 7 with 2012 Evo cams would be a great shooting bow too.

Axe 7 is a 2011 bow, evo 7 is a 2012. The 2012 evo has upgraded cams compared to 2011. They are slightly smoother than the axe cam but not enough to go crazy over.
With the prices coming down on the 2012 models you should be able to get a good price on the evo. If you can find new old stock you can get a heck of a deal on an axe 7.
The evo 7 is a better all around bow as far as technology goes, all the best parts and pieces. That said I myself prefer the axe model, just has a better feel too me. JMO
