    Well,

    I put in the order for PSE DNA. It is a 2 month wait... Guess it gives me time to go through the endless possibilities of spending money on the bow. Here is what I am planning on right now.

    Bow: 70LB Black PSE DNA Dream Season
    DL: 27"
    Poundage: 63lbs

    Bow accessories
    Stabilizer: NAP 8" Stabilizer
    Arrow Rest: QAD Ultra Rest (maybe HD, probably Hunter)
    Sight: Boss Hogg 5 pin wrapped
    Release: Boss Hogg Whipper Snapper (3 finger thumb release)
    Color: Kolorfusion - Currently thinking of Kryptek Highlander but looking for other suggestions and preferences. I really wanted Optifade Forest, but only G5 has the rights to that.
    Silencer: Limbsavers and Cat Whiskers
    PSE Kit: Turn alot of red accessories into Black - The only thing left red will be the cams (I heard if I want that dipped its alot of disassembly) If anyone knows of cheap ways to dip cams let me know.
    Paracord Wrist Sling - colors to match the pattern
    Grip/Logo: Custom made Yeti grips
    Case: SKB double bow case
    Arrows: Carbon Express of some sort

    Glove: Protx Kevlar (I know most will disagree but im using it as a safety measure, I like that comfort)
    Other Glove: Probably underarmour.
    Clothing: Most likely Underarmour since I love their stuff, but maybe Sitka. (wont be buying this for another couple of months)

    Looking for criticism and opinions on what you think I should change in the build.

    Dude I'm a Corpsman in the US Navy and from experience that Kevlar will not protect your hand! Kevlar gloves were originally designed for protecting your hand from Shrapnel and ricochets from up to 2-3 feet, anything closer will still penetrate, i.e. anyone stupid enough to put the wrong gauge shotgun shell in a shotgun and attempts to fire it, it will blow up consequently not protecting your hand or face. The Distance between your hand and the arrow is not enough, Kevlar gloves doesn't protect you the way you think it does. It's a big waste of money.

    Hey thanks for the info. But this kevlar is designed differently than the armor you wear in combat. It also comes at you with less speed and different material.

    Did someone put the wrong gauge shotgun shell when you were over there?

    Yeah, one of my Marines got back from deployment and decided to buy a shotgun and he's never bought one before. He wasn't too educated on difference between gauges or other guns in general. Also for future reference arrow deflection can be mitigated by inspecting all your gear especially felxing your arrows etc etc. Not trying to insult your intelligence, but it is just good practice.

    Oh no I know about those mitigation measures, I just like to have the gloves as back up = )

    Amazing how some people will just wander into something without knowing much about it.

    That is a beautiful Bow! When I eventually Upgrade I would probably get the PSE Revenge, or something similar to it.

    There was this guy the other day at the Base Range, and he has a bow that is too heavy for him, and a bunch of us was trying to tell him that its too much but he doesn't listen. Hope he doesn't hurt his shoulders.

    Thank you. I didnt shoot the revenge but im sure it will just as nice. The only complaint i have with mine is its a little jumpy when at full draw but as long as your pushing and pulling like you should be its not bad. with the cames not being as aggresive on the revenege im sure it will fix that problem a lot.

    Ya it was a long time but they have a high demand for them right now. As it starts to get farther in the season they will get caught back up and the wait wont be as long. I know a guy that ordered one when the first came out and waited 5 months. Thats the only problem you will run into if you order a 2014 when they first come out.

    ya it is typically like this every year until around summer time when they get caught back up with orders. Most brands are like this, some faster then others. If you just get a normal camo one the wait isnt bad at all and you can typically find them at your pro shop.

    My local shop has had a DNA for months now, it's just hanging out on the shelf. Where do you live?

    I know you're all about this kevlar glove, but i really think you're over reacting.

    I really like under armour gear. I think it's a great bang for your buck, even though it's on the high end. I've always done very well picking up random pieces on clearence. Sure my pants may be scentlock and top is under armour, but it's good stuff, serves it's purpose masterfully and was cost effective.

    Well Im in Afghanistan = ) And I had to order through PSE to get their military discount.

    I probably am overrreacting with the glove, but, I wear gloves anyways when I shoot so I might as well have it be kevlar. Thats the reason why im buying it.

    With you on under armour, all my workout shirts are the underarmour green (recycleable) Its got a soft silky feel and I can't stand anything else. Im also starting to get my wardrobe in all underarmour since im a big sweater. Im over wearing Dakine, Billabong, AE, AF, Polo and all those other companies. Id rather feel comfortable than look cool, but then again im married and I only wear those clothes on the weekends if at all.

    Ah, well that's a completely different scenario! And thank you for your service.

    Make sure the glove is comfortable. The nice thing about under armour is the gloves can be light but still warm.

    I'm the same way also. I prefer UA over most all other brands. Comfort is key any more. Even my dress pants at work are being converted to UAs.
