View Full Version : 2013 Freak Max

Im a finger shooter and the freak seemed to be a little smoother drawing than the supra. I only have 28.5" draw so the extra ATA is the only reason I'm looking at the freak over the supra. My main complaint is that the bow I test shot vibrated real bad after the shot...it felt like a tuning fork for several seconds after the shot. This was a test model with no stabilizer. Anyone else had similar experience shooting the freak? The vibration is probably more of a post shot annoyance than a real problem.

My Freak is a 2012, but it is quite as a mouse at the shot. Could be something loose like a cam screw or the string stop, etc. All I can say is that this is my first PSE and I love it!!! Can't wait to get it up to John's Customs to get it Breathn Tuned!

The bow was quiet but had a very strong (yet inaudible) vibration of the riser after the shot. I was wondering if it was just that particular bow or if maybe PSE made the riser too long for that combination of limbs and cams.

Could be a loose screw in the string stop, or perhaps something is out of time. Do you weigh your bow with stabilizers?

Must be the bow you shot my 2012 & 2013 both are vibration free and shoot amazingly well. The 2012 was my first PSE and I love them. I have got all the goodies in for my 13 so I have only shot it one round of spot with it, but no vibration.

Thanks for the feedback. Looking forward to getting one setup with all the accessories and stabilizer and see how it feels.
