I just saw that bow in the latest Cabela's catalog. Looks really nice, I first thought it was a Samic Volcano, but it specs 60" AMO instead of 58" AMO. I would really like to see and shoot one in person. Looks like a very nice bow for $200.

Its under the clear coat so it wouldn't be an easy fix, I like it on mine, kinda cool looking, I have a 40#er and it is a sweet shooter, Can't go wrong especially for the money

The price is great, but I don't want to sacrifice quality. I understand that you cant expect the very best for $200, but if I get a much better quality bow for $150 more or so, it'd be worth it. Any perspective on that? The other bow I'm considering is the Bear Grizzly ($329). Thanks! :darkbeer:

The Bear Grizzly is a very nice bow and made in the USA. For the money Samick has some really nice bows. The Stingray for $219 and the Volcano for $239, get very good reviews. I'm considering one myself, probably the Stingray. Lancaster Archery has both.

Don't let the 200.00 dollar price scare you into thinking this is not a quality bow. The PSE Black Hawk bow is far better than you would think.

It does look like a nice bow, and I'll look forward to trying it out...just didn't wanna go too cheap and not get a good product ya know? (especially without the reviews available to help in the decision process)

you might check out the martin mamba its pretty nice for arround 450-500 i know thats quite a bit more than 200 but it is a real nice bow but on the other hand you cannot beat the price on the blackhawk

I have shot both Grizzlies and the Blackhawk extensively. In my opinion, the Blackhawk has less handshock than the Grizzly. I also feels a little faster. I've shot all kinds of production/custom bows and am extremely impressed with the Blackhawk. It will be going to hunting this fall.

Great thread guys. Keep the reviews for the PSE Blackhawk coming. For the money I dont think you could go wrong buying one. I was looking at a $130 Samick Sage but this PSE has got me thinking otherwise for my first venture in traditional archery.

Chad, if you come to the traditional shoot at Cloverdale in June, you can try mine out, as well every other bow there.

Great I appreciate that! Unfortunaltly I have going to be on vacation June 9-15. I do appreciated the offer. I take it that you like your PSE Blackhawk. Thanks again.

The one that blue thunder is shooting now used to be mine. The only reason I sold it is because I switched to lefty. It's a great bow for the $$$, actually I think it's just a great bow.
