If you're thinking about using one of those cheap department store foam targets for use with your DNA - don't waste your money. They won't last an hour against the DNA. A good layered target - or preferably a high density bag target will be needed. Remember to soap your arrows if using 3D animal targets - or the DNA will weld your arrows in.
|We try to stock bows in popular sizes and patterns, but demand for the PSE X-Force Dreamseason DNA has been so overwhelming ... practically every size and pattern could be considered popular. And in response to so many special-order requests for Skullworks finish, we realized we needed to stock these units. This is our third Ready-to-Hunt DNA package for 2014 ... we have the DNA Hunter Package, the DNA Pro Package, and now the new DNA Skullworks Package here. You wanted the most sinister finish on the most menacing bow? You got it.
Why all the fuss? Simple. Performance. The DNA, frankly, is a rocket-launcher. Other bows just don't perform like this. And we're not talking about on-paper performance ... we're talking about on-target performance. While plenty of other bows claim to match the X-Force muscle, in reality most fall way short. The absurd efficiencies of PSE's X-Technology limbs continue to produce the hottest real-world arrow speeds and the most devastating penetration a serious bowhunter can get.
The X-Force is framed with new FORGED riser, an upgraded string stop, an improved limb pocket, and a flexible cable guard. So this year's X-Force is faster, quieter, and even more forgiving. And if you haven't seen what REAL 352 fps arrow speeds looks like, get ready to be amazed. You'll shoot one pin out to 35+ yards, and every arrow will be sunk down to the bone. To put it bluntly, this thing is mean. Whatever you want to hunt, the DNA will simply chew it up and spit it out.
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.
|Bow Press Note
This bow requires a special type of bow press. Never let anyone press this bow in an old crank press. Better yet, never let anyone work on this bow who doesn't absolutely know what they're doing. Return to HF for service.
This bow stores tremendous energy at full draw. If you dry-fire this bow (releasing the string without an arrow properly nocked on the string), you WILL seriously damage the bow - we promise. Don't let anyone draw this bow without an arrow.

|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.
