    I had a G5 Rouge I hunted with 99x out of 100. 1x a yr when I sat in my ground blind I would use my crossbow. Well last year just after the season started my trucks engine blew. At the time I was tight on money so I sold my compound to a friend. So with the cash I had I bought a used blazer and hunted with my crossbow all season. I hated it and been wanting to get a new bow. I'm a blue collar guy and with all my bills, student loans etc. Some month I'm lucky if I have $100 left. So I can't afford to go out and buy a new Mathews every year like a lot of you can. Well I found a guy selling his PSE Bow Madness XS w/case, 10 arrows, release... everything I need to hunt for $300. I jumped into action and bought it. I shot it today and I'm already shooting bulls-eyes. I'm so excited to have a compound again! Now I just got to sell my crossbow w/everything for $250 before July 10th to make rent...

    Awesome Congrats! I know exactly how you feel with the money issues that's pretty much my situation with cameras and camera gear this year. Even though you're shooting bullseyes it wouldn't be a bad idea to still take it to a shop and get everything checked and tuned to fit you. I always recommend that to people once they purchase a new bow. Good Luck!

    If I could lend you one word of advice.. Take those broadheads off of the arrows in the case. It would suck for an arrow to pop out of the holder while in the case and cut the string.

    Other then that congrats and welcome back!

    Ya that was the 1st thing I did after the pics. Then I set the draw to 29 and moved the peep. Now just practice, practice, practice...
