    Just remember SPEED isn't everything!! Just becasue the bow is capable of shooting IBO speeds of 340fps or more, doesn't mean it's a bow for everyone. I'm assuming you're a hunter. I would do the homework and find a bow that fits you to a T and that is accurate. The arrow weight will make up for the penetration you need for the humane kills!!

    Some of these bow comapnies are so rapped up in this speed craze, it's pathetic. I would sooner shoot a slower rig lights out than shoot a bow that zings arrows at blistering speeds with poor accuracy!!

    Not to steer you away from your bow purchase, but really test these bows and make the smart decision!!

    Good luck and good shooting!!:wink:

    Yes i have done my homework now i'm just trying to make MY own decision on which to get.I know speed isn't everything.a fast miss is still a miss,1 of my uncles favorite sayings.the xforce series bows are very acurate bows.

    spent some time shooting the 2 bows tonight.think I'm set on the xforce gx.both where smooth draw for a 2 cam bow,but the xforce omen which is the faster of the 2,had a harder break.once you got it past the break there wasn't any creeping and it was fast as lightning.the gx had a nice smooth draw all the way through and was also fast as lightning.going back Sunday to shoot a little more before i make my final decision on which to get.

    Finally i decided on a bow.I ended up getting the PSE XFORCE OMEN.So far i love it,got it hitting 3 outa 5 X's within 20 minutes of changing everything over.then realized i need to move the whole site down to the lower screw holes.Anyway with 29" draw,66lb draw weight,and 362 grain arrows this thing is flat haulin a$$ at 326 FPS.:crazy:can't wait to stick some deer with it.:big_smile:
