New, what you see there would set you back around $1800. I got the bow and the sight/scope second hand which saved me a lot.

This is a competition rig. No need for more poundage, 50 pounds is plenty for killing paper with :lol: also when i do 150+ shots in a day shooting lower weights keeps me shooting better at the end of the day. I had a 70 pound PSE Brute I sold because I never bothered to really hunt.

I totally agree with you on the #s I know a lot people who buy the heaviest bow available just because they can and it really dampens the fun of extended target practice. Although it can lead to some nice upper body strength.

What is the draw length, or, does it allow for adjustments?

This raises a question, how much simpler is it to use sights on a bow? I can handle a rifle, but I can't judge sighting just by reference points on a bow.

I know you need a peep installed on the string, and it needs to be sighted in for the arrows weight and ballistic coefficient, but it seems a lot easier just to learn your bow's point of impact. Otherwise I'll be burning through a lot of arrows.

The sights work in the same way to open rifle or pistol sights. The peep sight aligns with the sight (you also have reference points on your face to improve consistency). You can figure out some settings and put them into a program which makes you a tape for each distance, or just shoot and "follow the group" to get your sights in for a certain distance. You make marks on a sight tape so you don't have to sight in again later.

And JRRDW, it's machined aluminum. The only popular tube bow around now is the carbon element/matrix which are carbon fiber, rather than aluminum/magnesium.

Draw range is 24.5-30.5", I'm shooting 30.5 with the strings and cables played with to get 30.75".
