When it comes to backing a bow or stiffening a riser, you simply can't beat Fiberglass. The Fiberglass Reinforced Composite construction of the PSE Silver Snake provides exceptional consistency shot after shot. You wouldn't expect a youth bow to shoot this good.
The sport of archery is so hot right now its practically catching fire. Pun intended.
Largely inspired by the new Avengers movies and the Hunger Games trilogy, new shooters are flocking to the sport from all directions.
The PSE Silver Snake recurve bow isn't some toy movie replica. This beauty is for real! Fully functional and ready to shoot, this package is the perfect reason to lay down the smartphone and get some exercise and sunshine. Whether your imagination takes you deep into the forest like Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games or standing atop the Olympic winner's platform, the PSE Silver Snake will help you get in the game. Featuring a 60" AMO length and a 25-pound draw weight, the PSE Limited Edition Silver Snake has all the features you need to enjoy the sport of archery. Ready-aim-fire! The Silver Snake works for both right- and left-hand shooters, too!
For youth shooters and adult beginners alike, the Silver Snake is perfect for honing your skills and getting meaningful practice, all without breaking the bank. Constructed of near-indestructible composite materials, you won't find a more durable bow at any price. Some of our experienced shooters have even found the PSE Snake to be an outstanding small-game hunting bow. The PSE Silver Snake is simple, effective, and easy to use. It's a fun bow to share with friends and family, too - just draw, aim, and shoot!
Of course, we've loaded the PSE Silver Snake Traditional Recurve Bow Package with everything you need to get started: rest, quiver, arrows, armguard, field points, your choice of a glove or tab, and all the other trimmings to take the guesswork out and get you on the range. But don't expect the box to be full of loose parts and assembly instructions, because this awesome rig comes ready for action. We take it all the way from setting the initial brace height to final tuning so this awesome rig arrives 100% ready to shoot. All you have to do is string it up and hit the range. Scroll down for all the details.
You simply won't find a more durable entry level recurve bow at any price. Before release, PSE pretty much exhausted all options to try to destroy the prototypes and, short of catching fire, you're going to have a hard time breaking this bow.
We take the guess-work out of your setup so that you can spend less time tinkering and more time shooting. Every bow is set-up, tested, and fired 50-60 times to ensure the best combination of brace height, tip weight, and arrow spine.

|YOUR BOW STRINGER
Premium Recurve Stringer
Modern longbows are not easily strung. While you aren't buying the bow of Odysseus it is still nice to have an easy way to get it strung. This premium recurve bow stringer will reduce the possibility of limb warpage or bow damage while stringing. We don't recommend any other method for stringing your recurve as damage can easily occur. Featuring tough leather pockets and a high tensile string, our Premium bow stringer should last indefinitely.
|BOW PACKAGE DETAILS: SERVICES PERFORMED|
Each bow package is hand-assembled at our Pro-Shop by a qualified archery professional. No details are overlooked. The brace height is carefully set and tested, the nocking point is crimped on, arrows are tested based on your draw length, draw weight, and release style. Any hardware is carefully installed and carefully adjusted, and your arrows are custom built to match the ideal setup for your configuration. Finally, the string is waxed and the bow wiped down. Each bow is given a thorough inspection - top to bottom - for any flaws or damage. If the bow isn't up to standards, it doesn't leave our shop!
We actually test-shoot each bow. Every bow is carefully tuned by one of our staff shooters to ensure the earliest possible arrow stabilization . Adjustments are made as necessary until each arrow flies clean and true, indicating perfectly level and straight arrow flight for the best possible accuracy. We resolve any and all fletching clearance problems and align each arrow nock for a clean minimum-contact launch. Be advised that additional tweaking may be required as traditional bows are extremely sensitive to individual shooting form.
Each bow is tested at distance to ensure that arrows will group tightly. 3-Arrow groups are shot at 15, 25, & 35 yards and measured by our staff shooters. We use the 25/2 rule. If our staff shooters aren't grouping 3 arrows into a 2" circle at 25 yards with your new bowhunting package, then we retune until the 25/2 rule is met. While variances in individual shooting form makes an exact fit for your shooting form difficult to achieve, we are certain that you won't find anyone who performs a cleaner out-of-the-box tune on traditional equipment. Only minimal fine-tuning for your individual form should be required.s
We chronograph each bow to ensure that the actual arrow velocity is within the expected range. You will receive a System Statistics report with your new Ready-to-Hunt™ Bow Package. This report will precisely detail the exact velocity of your arrows, grain weight and length of the arrows, recommended tip weights, the exact bow settings, and dozens of other specs related to your bow system. Keep this sheet for your reference. If you ever need additional arrows or want to make changes and adjustments on your bow, you'll have the original data for reference.
|PACKAGING AND SHIPPING
Each fully assembled bowhunting package is delivered - packed tightly in the bow case of your choice. Loose parts, like the release and broadheads, are all safely tucked inside too. Once full, the bow case is boxed and sealed for safe transport. Your bow system is then shipped, via FedEx Ground, to your home or business. A tracking number will be provided to you, so you'll know when to expect delivery. All packages are fully insured and require a signature at the point of delivery.
