Default Starfire 2 Xbow

My girlfriends dad just told me that he was trying to get rid of his old cross bow and all I was wondering is if the Starfire 2 xbow was deccent....it has a 150 lb pull and he said he'd sell it to me for $100 with arrows and everything.....he has only shot it like 10 times....I want to start to get into hunting as I have never had the time because of wrestling in highschool I have a compound bow but I hurt my shoulder and cant pull it back consistantly anymore which is why I want a xbow....just some opinions please.

Hey yost, I have a PSE Starfire 2. Got it new, probably 25 years ago. Was very good bow then. I hung it on the wall for a few years and even though I have had a local bow shop do a little work on it, it will no longer shoot well at all. Bolts fly everywhere.So I would not recommend it.
I'm saving up for an Excalibur!!!!!!!

I just got a 8 point buck with mine 10/15/22, bought it in 1988 and it still drives nails ! ! I shoot it 3 or 4 times before season to make sure it's hitting where it should be and then I don't touch it unless I'm shooting at a deer. All parts still PERFECT. Got the scope rail and a red dot on it and it's still the Cat's-A**..I think PSE made the limbs out of suspension leafs out of one of their delivery trucks ! ! LOL It's a heavier bow but I'm not a whimp. I can carry it AND drag a deer out at 63.................Good Luck
PS: If you Starfire is shooting all over the place, make sure there is no wobble or play in the cams. That will screw up the works.

Congratulations on your successful hunting season! It's impressive to hear that your bow, purchased in 1988, is still performing well after all these years. Your maintenance routine of testing it before the season and leaving it untouched until needed seems to be working effectively. Thanks for sharing your experience and advice about checking for wobble or play in the cams of the Starfire to ensure accuracy.
