PSE Fire Flight 33 Bows

Bows Manufacturer: PSE
PSE Model: Fire Flight 33
Review Category: Bows

Purchase: Bows I purchased this as a replacement to my first compound bow that I had been using for 20 years. The objectives I had for a new bow were: Higher let off Move to Carbon Arrows Shorter bow length Higher Brace height I purchased the PSE Fire Flight 33 at Cabelas during one of their sales for $249. It included a sight, quiver, stabilizer, and 4 carbon arrows. They did a minor amount of sizing up the bow and sent me on my way. I found myself consistently shooting poorly at targets and then missing three separate times at deer. Then a bushing blew up when I was drawing back on the bow. I went back to Cabelas to try and get things fixed. They were kind enough to fix the burst bushing but still the bow was off. I gave up on Cabelas and went to a Pro Archery store. They found the draw length was set too long and a few other issues. I put on Limb Savers devices on the string and limbs as the bow really was loud when I shot it. The limb savers made a significant difference. The PSE Fire Flight 33 now shoots consistently. This is a brand made especially for mass merchandising stores. As a basic bow goes, it is adequate but not awesome. So, I bought a Hoyt Power Tech. This will be my main bow and I will use the PSE only as a back up bow when I travel the country. Lesson learned? 1. Buy from a Pro Shop 2. Bite the bullet and buy a better bow

Things I like about the PSE Fire Flight 33 Bows: It'll be a good back up bow on trips only.

What I don't like about the PSE Fire Flight 33: Took way too much time and effort to get this to fit the shooter.

Bows Fire Flight 33 quality: Fair, lots of noise. Components added without regard to the individual shooter i.e. one size stabilizer.

Fire Flight 33 summary: Either Buy a Better PSE but at the least buy only from a dedicated local archery store that will help you select the right bow suited to your specific needs.
