We've talked for a long time about both two of us starting to bowhunt. I hadnt worked much for last 18 months and have a bad knee now thanks to the Apaches, so there's no good time to buy, just gonna do it one day soon. Againx3 for me, be first for wife tho she shot archery in high school. Prob craigslist my old Martin Warthog when we make a decision. Thinking about a pair of PSE I see on Cabela's, hers diff from mine of course, she shoots right hand and I shoot with correct hand. No pink on them, unlike the handgun I got her for teacher of the year. Any PSE users out there have one of these, or comment from other experts here appreciated:

PSE makes good stuff. I haven't shot that one. Brace height is a forgiving 7 1/2". Axle to Axle is 30 3/4" and that is really too short for me. I shoot a 30" or 31" draw length. I've found personally it is extremely difficult to shoot a bow accurately that has an ATA close to or less than my draw length. If your draw length is 28" or less the short ATA shouldn't be as big an issue.

An IBO speed of 316fps indicates the bow has the potential to have plenty of energy for a hunting setup.

If you can try before you buy then do it. But if you can't I think you still will enjoy the bow. Bows have come a long way in the last 10 years.

I noticed that the lightest poundage setting was 40lb. Not worried about you,lol, but I would make sure your wife can pull that comfortably. I believe there are more women that can't pull that much to start, than can. Perhaps a 30lb garage sale bow to practice/build strength with

Is Huck still on the PSE Prostaff He was a couple of years ago. He should be able to fill you in and answer any questions.
