Carbon fiber isn’t anything new for bows, arrows and archery accessories, so it wasn’t a surprise to see the new PSE Carbon Air bow make a splashy debut next to a big whitetail buck.
Longtime PSE marketing guru Blake Shelby revealed the new Carbon Air and its results on an October hunt in Canada. Shelby posted some info and photos on Facebook.
Shelby wrote: “The first kill with the new Carbon Air! I am so blessed to be able take this buck. He is a 302 lbs, Canadian Bruiser that scores about 160 but is way cooler than that. Look for the hunt on a Mossy Oak show next fall. Very Blessed.”
Impressive buck and a big ol’ boy on the scales, too! The new Carbon Air looks pretty wicked. Here’s a few of the highlights, from the PSE Archery site:
Here’s the scoop straight from PSE:
You’ve never shot anything like the monocoque-designed 2016 PSE Carbon Air®, a revolutionary new breakthrough in bow technology. Engineered with our new PSE True Carbon™Technology, the PSE Carbon Air® is the lightest ultra-performance compound bow on the market at just over 3 lbs. The Carbon Air® is also dead quiet and comfortable in your hand, with PSE’s proprietary Structural, Rigid Acoustic Core (S-RAC) suppressing noise and vibration, as well as acting with the carbon as an insulator against the heat and cold.
