I recently had my limb on my 2005 Venom Pro Series crack/split. I took it to a PSE Pro Shop to have new limbs ordered. Come to find out the limbs are not made any more and they offered to replace the bow with a closeout Brute or Rogue.
I had requested to just receive a credit and apply it to a new X Force. However I was told that was not possible. So…I was not interested in the Brute and begrudgingly requested the Rogue. (If the Rogue is an 07 model, I am ending up with a heavier and slower bow, not ideal for me with my short 25.5” draw. I need all the speed I can get.
I was told PSE would only replace my bow with one of the two. So I felt my hands were tied and had to choose between the two. My Pro Shop said PSE was valuing my bow at $400-$450, the same price as the Rogue/Brute.
I am kind of frustrated because I thought receiving a credit would have been a very easy thing and I could have bought a bow right off the shelf and been back out in the woods within a day or two.
It probably sounds like I am coming off a bit selfish and trying to get something for nothing, but am I off base to try and receive a credit to apply towards a newer bow?
I feel that I am being offered slower moving bows that I don’t feel are equivalent to what I had.
Believe me I am very happy to be getting a replacement. I am just not 100% satisfied and that was one of the reasons I went with a PSE a few years ago.
What do you think?
