Default PSE Omen and DNA

I shot these two bows today at the ealrly bird outdoor show in Bloomsburg, PA. They felt nice and the draw was relatively smooth and fairly quiet. But the price tag of $900+ is a bit hard to swallow. Particularly after buying a new Onza 3 Pro last year for about 1/3 that. Ane even though the Onza is about 20 fps slower it feels much better drawing and shooting.

Bronko did you try the Vendetta?

Also you say at the price it isnt good, can the lower costing bows be upgraded to be just as good at less the price?

I honestly believe that you are paying a couple hundred dollars more for the name(s). I've been shooting Martins for about 7 years now and their quality is every bit as good as Matthews, Hoyt, PSE, Bowtech, etc. And their customer service is second to none. The Onza which is one of their top of the line bows was less than 1/2 the price of the Omen or DNA. And I am only losing about 15 -20 fps (maybe). At 63# I am getting a chronographed 307fps with a 400 gr arrow. Very very close to the rating.

Well, I get a military discount with PSE and Matthews, I havent contacted Martin though. The rest of the big manufacturers stopped their big discounts.
