The PSE Phenom SD compound bow is designed to be as effective as possible without breaking the bank. It features an upgraded Mini Drive Cam to remain a bow that will more than meet the needs of the target shooter and does so at a price that will appeal to the majority.

In order to keep the bow as prestige as the other bows on the market, there are several features implemented. These include X-Technology, Pivoting Limb Pockets, Planar Flex riser and Raptor Grip.

 The bow's cam effectively eases the pull of the bow with a let-off of 75%. The brace height is 6 5/8" and the draw length range is 23" to 28.5", significantly shorter than that of most other target bows. The draw weight options are 40 pounds, 50 pounds and 60 pounds.

As afore mentioned, this is an amazingly smooth to draw bow, capable of speeds up to 316 fps. The frame is 31 3/8 inches axle to axle and it weighs a reasonable 4.0 lbs.

This bow has an MSRP of $700. This is a relatively good price for a target bow.

The bow is available in three different finish options of Black, Blue and Red.

The Phenom SD has been part of the line up for a number of years now and has again been added to the 2016 season's bows as an integral part of the Pro Series of bows.

What they're saying in the forums about the PSE Phenom SD

Received my sons Phenom SD in yesterday and finished setting it up tonight, here's my sons feedback on it so far. Granted he's only shot it for about 30 minutes, but here's what I've got.
He is transitioning from a Hoyt Ruckus, mass weight was clearly noticeable for him. He says the draw cycle is smooth easy to draw with a solid wall in comparison to his Ruckus.
He's shooting 31lbs at 24" draw at this time. So far he feels it holds well with his standard 24" front bar with 1oz and a 10" side bar with 2oz's.
