Default Diamond and PSE

Hello all.. I'm thinking of purchasing my first compound bow this summer and I wanted to get everyone's opinions about these couple of bows I have narrowed it down to for now. I like the Liberty and Justice from Diamond and the Thunderbolt and Brute from PSE. I'm a newbie so dont be to hard on me here.. but I'd apprreciate everyones input and advice. Thanks in advance.

I shoot the Diamond Black Ice...it isnt a speed burner but it is a GREAT bow....My buddy shoots the Justice and it is also a great bow, not quite as smooth as my black ice but still a great bow...I havnt shot much for PSE bows but I really do think Diamond has a pretty good line...

I have shot the Black Ice and Marquis, both great bows from Diamond. I have shot some higher end PSE's but didn't shoot as well for me as the Diamonds. Try shooting them all and see which one feels best, I am heading out to shoot some Matthews, Hoyt's and Bowtech's in a little bit.

I now own my second Diamond. Great bows. I can't speak for PSE having never owned one. If you buy a Diamond I doubt you will ever regret it.

Well with the given bows youve posted assuming your minds made up up on one of the 4 i would personally go with the Diamond Liberty, its a great shooting little bow, pretty smooth and quiet... honestly, i say this because it is the only one i have any experience with of the 4 you listed. but i doubt that would change anyhting.

I really, really enjoy shooting my Liberty. It's the "back up" to my Marquis, but honestly it is working hard to win my heart. I don't really care for the Black Ice - but that's me, it's too short.

Another big plus for the Liberty is the price - to obtain that quality at $550 TYD, you can afford to spend more for your sight and rest (and a Mean V suppressor, of course!)

I haven't regretted getting either of my Diamond bows. I had a Victory and just this week I got a Marquis. I have no experience with the PSE's other than holding them in some stores. Diamond's and PSE's are two very different feeling brands of bows.

I have owned 2 Diamond bows and I have nothing bad to say about them. And I will keep shooting Diamond/Bowtech until i find something better, and up to now, I haven't.
