Tac Elite Problem

Just purchased an Elite. Replaced the factory trigger with a Geissele hi speed match trigger. fired it two times before the release mechanism on the bow broke. PSE promptly replaced it. Shot the new one less than 10 times before it broke also. PSE says this is the first time this has ever happened. Their engineers are trying to figure it out. Anyone else ran into problems with replacement triggers. The factory trigger was 8 and a quarter lbs. Also, the string weights have already damaged the string after less than a dozen shots. Lots of money to have this kind of trouble.

    Mine broke, so you are not the first. Is one reason why I returned the bow forever

    My trigger is horrible. After shooting rifles with good triggers most of my life this is like going backwards. The PSE rep that lives near me asked how I was liking my Tac. I told him so far so good however the trigger is horrible. He said that was the biggest complaint. He spoke of a better trigger however the Tac cost is so high now they are worried about getting the Tac priced too high. He said they may come out with a package set up sometime that has the better trigger , scope and other misc items we are adding to the Tac as we go along.

    BKM, do you have an update on your Tac? My factory trigger broke after about 60 shots. I will replace it with a Timney. I'm on my second string also, on the first one the string weights moved and made contact with the cam on one side.

    OH BOY! I just finished ordering, less than 5 minutes ago, a new trigger that DPMS just came out with, and now I see this...... Yay! (good feeling gone)

    Exactly what I want to know.
    TAC Elite owners need to be far more specific. Preferably posting pictures showing broke area or part of TAC.
