If you are looking for fantastic quality and awesome FPS then check out the full PSE Bow Madness review to find out how this bow will meet your needs.
PSE Madness 32 Details
This compound bow is stylish and sleek, especially with the accessories attached to complete the image. Axle to axle it measures 32 ⅜”, which is where the Madness 32 gets its namesake from. Without accessories it weighs 4.1lbs. This makes it a little bit heavier than its competitors, but still a very manageable bow for adults who can handle the poundage. With the accessories attached it weighs nearly 5.8lbs. The brace height is only 6”, which may seem deceptively short, but PSE proves the performance is there and backs it with their X-Force technology. Don’t let the height of the brace fool you.
Madness 32 Speed
The Madness 32 is satisfyingly fast with a peak FPS between 332 and 340, IBO standard. PSE Bow Madness reviews show that it will easily get up to speeds of 295 with a 350 grain arrow, more than enough to take down the big game hunters seek.
Because of the high FPS, it isn’t unreasonable that this is not a very adjustable bow. There are competitors with far more customizable draw lengths and weights. However, the Madness 32 is focusing on speed and performance and it more than succeeds.
It is, of course, adjustable to some extent and should be perfectly suitable for most adults. The draw length can be adjusted anywhere from 24” to 30”, which is a rather modest range. And the draw weight can be set between 40lbs and 60lbs. For being a comparatively low max poundage bow the Madness 32 is plenty fast and won’t disappoint in that regard.
Madness 32 Draw Details
Having 80% let-off makes this a very mild mannered compound bow. The valley is good and won’t try to grab at the arrow during full draw, even if you end up relaxing a little bit. Holding full draw is relatively easy after the initial peak draw weight, thanks to that 80%. PSE Bow Madness reviews indicate that this is a great choice for people who have injuries or bad shoulders, but don’t want to sacrifice the speed and performance.
The smooth draw cycle can be attributed to the Madness hybrid cams, which are beautifully synchronized. The hybrid system is a breeze to maintain and adjust, much like a solo cam system, but delivers the punch and speedy delivery of a dual cam system. PSE truly paid attention to detail in their design of these cams and the draw cycle is proof of that. The quality can also be noted in how quiet the bow is and how tough the back wall is at full draw. Even if you accidentally pull after the peak the back wall won’t budge. The built in dampeners do well to reduce vibration and minimize shock.
PSE Madness 32 Package Details
The RTS package comes with high quality accessories that are worth the money spent: the Aries sight, reputable Whisker Biscuit rest, Flexxtech 3 stabilizer, and a Shadow quiver. In addition to those are a PSE neoprene sling, peep sight, and a nock loop. This package is justifiably said to be an incredible deal and it’s perfect to get into this year’s hunting season.
