I’ll stick with my Bowtech for now, but the Omen and Dream Season… well, lets just say ‘they look interesting to me’ and leave it at that for now…

My name is Eric Grippa, and I am a PSE Pro-Staffer from a little town just east of Cincinnati OH. I have been competing in the IBO for the past 16 years, and this year at the World Championships in Seven Spring PA, it all finally came together for me.
The bow I shoot 3-D with is the Omen Pro. I shoot it for one reason, sheer speed. The Omen Pro is hands down the fastest bow I have ever shot. I shoot a 29” draw at 58 lbs of draw weight. With that set up, my Omen Pro sends my 300 grain arrow down range at 349 fps. Needless to say, that makes yardage estimation much easier to call. The class I shoot in is Male Bowhunter Release, which means I shoot fixed pins. At almost 350 fps, I no longer have to hold a pin high or low on the target. I judge the target for the top, middle, or bottom pin, hold the pin of my choice on the 11 ring, and let her rip. That tactic enabled me to take first place this year at the IBO Worlds. My Omen Pro and I made it to the finals with a comfortable lead. I maintained my lead through the finals and came off the mountain as a World Champ.
