Ordered my new toy today- a 70/60# 2011 PSE Brute.

It should be a nice bow to shoot- parallel limbs, slimline grip, fairly light (lighter than the older brutes in particular), 25-30" draw adjustment by adjusting the module, solo cam, factory vibracheck setup, teflon slide, PSE string backstop, nice long machined aluminium riser, 320 IBO, 70-60# adjustment etc... The 2011 Brute doesn't have the NRG hatchet looking innercam..it's gone to a nicer smoother cam like the bow madnesses cam.

I've got a cobra fall away rest, 3 pin fiber optic sight, a 5" stabiliser, bow sling, peep and d loop (setup) coming with it. I've got arrows from my old bow but they'll probably be replaced by some carbon arrows by Easton soon.

Getting the bow madness was tempting, but it wasn't worth the extra $200. (While it's only $100 more for the xs, the strings are known to be of poor quality and tend to become obsolete quickly, and the bow madness needs an expensive string set to do it justice, plus the other features it has over the brute aren't worth it).

The Bear Strike was also another option- but I went with the Brute as my local store carries them (I didn't buy locally though) and I'd gotten to use one before, which I can't say for the Bear. Plus the Brute seems to rate better in general.

Short term upgrades will be a new set of arrows (might run me $150 or so), and some cat whisker string silencers. After that perhaps a custom string set.

I'll post some pictures and a review when it arrives.

Where's VERA?

I wanted to show it to my friends, but it is gone from the internet :(

D_Hall requested it removed. I'll leave it up to him to elaborate on the matter.

Ah, and the sad thing is, Google, Bing, and all the other search engine cache's are missing the post, for at least technical reference. Google still has cached pages of most of the posts from the "Happy Birthday, VERA!" thread, which is still a good archive of the build process.

This is usually where one posts revolting pictures of the damage ;)

In other news, it appears Philip Luty is dead.

That's a shame, if you know how he ended up in prison you'd be suprised at his foolishness.

Hiring a photographer for his books detailing homemade submachine guns wasn't the brightest idea.

I'm glad I've already got most of his books, I'm still missing Home Workshop Pistols though, the copy (sort of) that I have is a shitty rewrite/theft by some white supremacist. (I needn't say I strongly disagree with such views, it should be apparent)

From what I heard he had stomach cancer, but I won't talk about why he wasn't treated while detained.

I have a short metallurgy question, if I hammered some high tensile wire flat, will it retain it's original qualities? I'd do it slowly to avoid tempering it.

As you see, I'm yet to learn about metallurgy.

It would get harder. Doing that work hardens it. This is the only way to harden materials that cannot be heat hardened. If you hammer too much, it will crack. If you need to deform it a lot, you should really anneal it, work it, then (if necessary and possible) re-temper it. With a propane torch it isn't that hard. Heat till orange-ish, quench in oil, polish a spot, heat till oxide layer is (look it up based on temperature required for desired hardness) and quench it (or let it air cool, depending).

Google how to temper *whatever grade of material* *material*

Thanks, It's an attempt at a tiny prod for an equally small crossbow, I've got some very high tensile fencing wire which I thought would suffice. Thanks again.
