Gear Review: 2014 PSE Dream Season DNA SP

2013 PSE Dream Season DNA was a very popular bow; they manufactured a new riser that was stronger and lighter but still managed to push the super-fast IBO speeds PSE is known for.

But for most of us, a smooth draw is what we really want, and as a woman, I don’t want to have to fight with what in my opinion was an overly aggressive cam.

PSE took the popular Evo Cam and engineered it to work with center pull geometry; and the PSE Source Hybrid Cam was born.

In response to thousands of emails and letters and feedback from its customers, PSE created the new SP cam system. SP would of course stand for “Smooth Pull”.

Upon testing the 2014 PSE Dream Season DNA SP, I first shot the 2013 PSE Dream Season DNA. In comparison the SP is definitely quieter. The draw was noticeably smoother and had a great back wall once I locked in.

As I’d read, when tested in the chronograph, it was significantly slower than the original DNA. However, even at a slower fps than the original the SP was very, very fast.

One particular note of interest was the different brackets for your sight which was awesome.

With the sliding draw stop peg, comes the ability to customize the valley length and I found that the short valley eliminated creep.

I did feel a mild vibration when I shot but once I put on a stabilizer it evened itself out.

It’s a shame it does not come in Realtree, if it did, it would be a serious contender for me.
