Has anybody shot the new PSE X Force SS, I did shoot the X Force last year and it was NICE.

The new SS is extremely short only 26" axle to axle with a brace height of around 7".

Just wondering what you all think?

I am going to try to go shoot it here soon at a local archery dealer.

Short bows are the thing now days... I hate em.. but its not a problem with the bow. its a problem with me.. I am 6'3".. and have a wing span of someone who is 6'6"... so short bows the peep site gets so far away from me I cant see anything..

PSE makes good bows.. shoot it and let us know what you think!

i just set up my new bow, its the longest A to A bow I have ever shot, and by FAR the most accurate I have ever shot..

I have the opposite problem dietz. The standard measurement says I should be a 29" draw, but mines is 27.5" Short arms with broad shoulders...... Oh well.

I don't know that I would like a bow that short, but who knows. I am interested in shooting the Xforce in my quest for a new bow.

A couple of years ago I thought about getting rid of my mechanical release and go back to shooting fingers. The axle to axle length is getting so short that my fingers were getting pinched between the string and the arrow. It was too hard to get a smooth release off so I just stuck with the mechanical release.

With all of these short bows on the market, people are nearly required to shoot a mechanical release.

I just got back from the deer classic and there was a couple of booths that had the new X-FORCE "ss" this is a sweet bow. I thought it had a smooth draw, rock solid wall and a great feeling handle. It was super quiet and had no vibration. If I didnt buy a X-FORCE last fall I would have bought a "SS" today. I watched alot of jaws hit the floor today, nobody could believe how nice it shoots. If you go to the classic this weekend you could test fire one there.

      I may get a big ration of doodoo for this post, but here goes.  As a business owner (not food related) I guess I'm a bit confused by all of these negative posts.  The new owners (remember, they invested their money in the place) have evidently decided on a business model that they feel will work for them to be profitable.  I don't know them, don't know what their background or experience is, and it really doesn't matter.  It's their business, so they get to do with it whatever they choose.  If their model doesn't work, it stands to reason that they'll change their model, but that is entirely up to them.  There's likely a reason that the ownership of The Landing has changed several times in the last decade.  Trying to drive these owners out of business won't bring back 1980's priced cheap food and drink.   There are lots of places in many towns and cities that I choose not to eat at or visit because I don't want to pay the prices they charge.  But I don't go on the Internet and demean the owners and their places of business because I choose not to buy from them.  I'm a few times a year visitor to The Landing, and it is generally for lunch off the lake.  If I thought it was too expensive I simply wouldn't go back.  Vote with your dollars, not your posts on this forum.  Get a Trip Advisor or Yelp account and post a review if it's that important for you to vent.   The alternative for all of you of course, is that if anyone else has a model where they can charge half as much and still make a profit (not likely), well maybe that person ought to buy The Landing and give us all cheap food and drink.  We'll line up at the dock for you.  It's the old "put your money where your mouth is" adage.  The fact is, most of the old favorite local establishments you talk about have been in the same family for years or generations, and the owners make a living because of low overhead.  Someone investing in a new venture has lots to pay for, and as you all know, owning anything on a lake, and especially on Vermilion in Greenwood Township, is not a low-cost endeavor.   Let's support those who choose to invest in these expensive pieces of real estate on our lake (or at least not disparage them in these posts), and help them to keep them open.  Time to forget about getting $1 tap beers and $2.50 hamburgers, when the owners have to pay 2017 overhead costs.  Guys, the 80's want their lunch tab back.
