Outdoorsman Review:

(1/15/11) The review for the PSE Omen was provided by Arren D. from somewhere here in the US. Thanks Arren for your very detailed review of the Omen. Wish I had one of these myself.


The 2010 PSE Omen was announced and people went crazy over the 366 feet per second IBO speed. This review is to see if it really matches up with that standard.

Bow as shot:

2010 PSE Omen
29″ draw
60# draw weight
16 grams on string with peep and d-loop
VaporTrail Limbdriver rest
Limbsavers stab
360gr Victory VForce Pink arrow

Draw:

Many people would state that you should stay away from short brace heights as they are very harsh draws. While you are pulling the weight farther, I found the draw to be quite nice. The break over is not too bad as it is only 65% let off, had it been more the bow would probably want to jump out of your hand. PSE chose the correct let-off for the draw cycle. The hump is noticeable, however it only took me three shots to get used to it.

Shooting:

Individuals that do not know their draw length will probably hate this bow as they will pull too far and smack their arms with the low brace height. The back wall is small…very small. Any movement will make the bow want to pull you out of shooting position. I found that this has actually steadied my mounting position but shooters just getting into the sport will have sore shoulders their first time shooting this bow. There is no jump felt at all when the arrow is released.

Speed:

This bow shot an average of 330 feet per second with my setup. This is well within IBO and has an amazing 87.1KE at 60# at 70# that would equal just under 100KE with a light(er) arrow.

Noise:

This bow did make some noise shooting the lighter arrow. The string made quite an audible pop when it hit the string dampener. It is about twice as loud as a Bowtech Tribute and Hoyt Carbonmatrix. I swapped out the dampener pad with a Limbsavers pad and added a set of Limbsavers Split Limb Ultraquads and the sound disappeared. The vibration from the limbs due to the pre-load and the hard dampener pad included seems to have been the cause of the sound. With the Limbsavers installed I would put it on par or below both the bows stated above when it comes to sound. Total added cost was about $30.

Accuracy:

Accuracy is all on the shooter. I find this bow to be extremely accurate, even up to 70#. The only problem most shooters will have is the let-off is less than most other companies, so you will be holding more weight. Shooting out past 50 yards becomes easier with this speed bow, as the pins are closer and accidentally choosing the 40 yard pin doesn’t drop you too far. This bow is more accurate than this shooter, I will tell you that.

Overall build quality:

The bow is a little heavier than other, but we are talking ounces. The pre-loaded limbs seem extremely sturdy and the slim handle makes for extremely comfortable shooting. The Mossy Oak Treestand Finish makes the bow look extremely sharp. All in all it LOOKS fast.

Overall thoughts:

This bow is not for everyone. Beginners to the sport should find a bow that is a tad more forgiving on the draw. The low brace height will scare away individuals but it shouldn’t. If you are shooting the correct draw length it will only take a few shots to learn the draw cycle. The audible pop it made sounded almost like a .22 going off when I first heard it. Luckily, I had purchased the Limbsavers equipment before the bow, so it was readily available.

I would wholeheartedly recommend this bow to any serious hunter or 3D shooter who requires speed to ensure that tough shot gets made.

“Good shots lead to quick kills…the game deserves that type of shot”

Outdoorsman Review:

Rose’s experience with the Micro Burner™:

My husband and I were looking for a bow for me that was very adjustable and that I could pull back but would still kill deer. He found me the PSE Micro Burner bow at Bass Pro Shops and I loved it from the first minute I shot it.

I finally got to where I could shoot the bow good with it set on 29 #’s. I even killed a groundhog from our hunting blind with it. I hope to get my first deer with a bow with it next year. I do wish it went to 40#’s though in case I ever get to that level, but I love it! Me and my husband’s digital camara tore up a few months ago or I would have sent pictures.

Nice bow.

(3/27/11) The review for PSE’s Coyote recurve bow was left for us by Jeff A. from Chicago. Thanks for the review Jeff.

Outdoorsman Review:

I have found the PSE Coyote to be a nice take down recurve for the money. This bow has a smooth draw and does not “stack up” when you get to full draw. This take down bow breaks down easy and stores in my backpack nicely.

I purchased the bow in the 40 pound draw weight I have shot Goldtip 3355 with 4in. right hand helical and have shot cedar arrows fletched the same way both arrows shot well from the Coyote. I have several recurve bows and for the money it shoots as well of some of my more expensive bows.

This is a great bow for anyone wanting to try traditional archery without wanting to spend alot of money.

Manufacturer’s Specs:

  • Machined aluminum riser
  • Mossy Oak Treestand
