Even with a little softer cycle, the DNA SP is still a 345 fps powerhouse. If you're considering one of those cheap department store foam targets for use with your DNA SP - don't waste your money. They won't last an hour against this bow. A good layered target - or preferably a high density bag target will be needed.
|PSE has been dominating the performance bow market for several seasons, and the X-Force DNA led the pack in 2013. Of course, powerhouse bows aren't always so sweet and cuddly. Some DNA customers remarked that the draw cycle felt a bit harsh and aggressive. Since the DNA shoots an astronomical 352 fps, that's no particular surprise - but PSE was determined to respond. So ... new for 2015, PSE is offering the DNA in an SP (smooth pull) special version. It's almost identical, but the drawstroke is modified to be a little sweeter - just a touch more cuddly.
We tested an early sample of the DNA SP, and just as PSE said, the draw cycle felt less aggressive and notably smoother - particularly during the last few inches gliding back to full draw. The bow felt great! Of course, we've seen EZ-draw bow models before, so we were expecting a solid 15-20 fps reduction in IBO Speed. Nope! We only dropped 7 fps. That's right, a measly 7 fps separates the DNA @ 352 fps and the DNA SP @ 345 fps. We couldn't help but grin. PSE can't seem to slow these X-Force bows down even when they try. The new DNA SP is still among the very fastest bows on the market ... AND IT'S THE "SMOOTH" PULL VERSION! You gotta' love it!
The DNA SP is built with the same bulletproof FORGED riser, upgraded string stop, improved limb pocket, and a flexible cable guard. Plus, this cam system has a sliding draw stop peg - so you can customize the amount of valley you feel at full draw. You want a smooth cycle and a velvety joy-joy experience? Fine! But the DNA SP is still going to rock your world. The SP version might be cracking a little smile, but this thing is still mean to the core. It's an X-Force ... it just can't help it.
Of course, we've loaded this great bow up with everything: rest, sight, arrows, stabilizer, bow case, wrist sling, mechanical release and MUCH MORE. But don't expect the box to be full of loose parts and assembly instructions, because this awesome rig comes ready for action the moment you unpack it from the case. Our pro-shop does all the work in-advance. So this awesome bowhunting rig arrives 100% ready to shoot. Scroll down for all the details.
PSE integrates their Backstop-2 string suppression system into the new DNA SP. There's no need for string silencers or cat-whiskers. The Backstop arrests string oscillation before it has a chance to generate noise. You can even adjust it to tweak the sweet spot if you like.
|Limb Stop Options
The DNA SP features a new adjustable stop on the cam - so you can customize the feel of the bow at full draw (full slot - infinite positions). With just a hex wrench, you can make the back wall of your DNA SP feel more or less aggressive - and control the amount of "valley" you want to feel at the end of the drawstroke.

BOW PACKAGE DETAILS: SERVICES PERFORMED
Every bow package is hand-assembled at our Pro-Shop by a qualified archery professional. No details are overlooked. The peep sight is served in place, the nock or loop set is installed, the draw length and weight is set to your specifications, all hardware is carefully installed and properly adjusted, and your arrows are custom built to suit your particular bow and settings. The string gets waxed, axles lubricated, and the bow is given a thorough inspection - top to bottom - for any flaws in manufacturing. If the bow and related gear aren't up to standards, they don't leave our shop!
We actually test-shoot each bow. Every bow is paper tested by our staff shooters, to ensure that your arrows will fly like a laser beam when launched from your new bow. Adjustments are made as necessary until each arrow tears a clean "bullet-hole", 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 zero-contact launch. Be advised that paper-tuning results are only repeatable if you shoot with proper form (no torquing, trigger-jerking, improper grip pressures, etc.).
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 exact pre-sighting impossible, we test shoot each bow and rough-set your top sight pin for a 20 yard shot. This gets your sight-pins in the "ball-park" so you won't have to start from scratch - possibly sending an arrow into an unforgiving neighbor's yard.
When you receive your new bow system, you will just need to make fine adjustments to the top pin, then finish-up by setting the remaining pins for the distances you prefer. And if you're new to the sport, or not so handy with tools and gadgetry ... don't worry. You'll also receive a copy of our booklet Getting Started with Your Compound Bow which offers detailed instructions on the sighting-in procedure as well as helpful maintenance and safety tips. WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS BOOKLET THOROUGHLY BEFORE YOU BEGIN SHOOTING.
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.
