    Default Martin v.s. PSE

    Does Martin have a bow that shoots just as good as the PSE X-force?

    Only you can answer that question for yourself.

    I small a rat. Bows don't shoot "good". They shoot "well". And basically they all shoot with the same potential for accuracy. The person behind the bow determines whether they can personally shoot well with the bow in hand.

    Which X-Force? Some of those shot great and some were awful for example the 2009 X-Force models with GX cams often would not tune and early models of X-Force Omens were very challenging to shoot well. They have many varieties of X-Force. This is like asking is Chevy or Ford best but it depends on the year and model and what you want to do with it.

    Bottom line is, Martin certainly has some bows that shoot better than some PSE bows. PSE certainly has some bows that shoot better than some Martin bows.

    Shoot what fits, feels, and works best for you.

    I will say this, nobody has better customer service and support than Martin.

    Best wishes.

    Depends how much you value your shoulders. I don't like the PSE stiff draw or the tiny grip. I like the looks and have shot bows w less vibes. Your question is subject to shooters opinion.

    my best friend has the pse omen...80lb limbs...30 inch draw.... (He lifts twice a day so the lbs is nothing to him) I don't lift twice a day....twice a week with kids..lol
    I have never seen a faster bow.....
    I have never witnessed a quieter bow......really really smooth at the shot

    Now the downside.........The draw was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO dam harsh! I can pull back a 80lb bow, but the omen cams which are dang near square were just about too hard to break over. I swear that i took 1 to 2 years off my shoulders from just a few shots that day. I can't take the thought of trying to shoot that bow again.
    The fit and finish were great...........but if i were going to get a speed bow with a much easier draw...i would look at the darton 3800, some of the new pse models are like 345 ish with more rounded cams. The darton was like a dream to pull back compared to the omen!!!!!!

    I will say the new alien is nice to draw back, it's worth a try...I think it's rated at 335fps.

    Shoot what fits you comfortably......there is a bow out there for everyone.

    Man,man, man, that's getting way out there. I really cannot fathom and 80 bow but hey whatever yanks the chain. I have found that most bows have that elusive setting called "comfortable and quiet". When drawing my eyes and arrow never leave the target kill zone.

    I'd say this is one of those threads that should have the name "Antique" in the title now. LOL
