Did you read Africas Bowhunter this month? There is a review in there or phone Jaco at Potshot Archery.

Has anyone got some experiance with these bows? I'd like to compare it to mine. Mine shoots like a gun and I have to shoot at different dots even at 50m otherwise I kill arrows but I'm having some issues with my string. I'm already on my second string and that also needs replacing.
How many shots do you get through a string?

yes there is apparently a "bad batch" where the weights were not crimped onto the string properly. If this is the situation, you are entitled to a warrantee claim. Give Jaco of Potshot Archery a call (he is the official PSE agent), he'll give you the rundown of the issue as well as the process of what to do about the slipping string weight

Ah ok, so its just my bad luck that I got 2 bad ones. That weight is actually a spring. I love this bow though, I use it to cull pigs and get a complete pass through from front to back. Great groups too, real arrow killer. Next mod is drop away rest.
