I would buy a used high end bow before i would buy a middle of the road new bow. I just went through a giant headache trying to to that for my son. I didn't have the $ to go to Mathews and ended up after two equipment failures on brand new bows and then a personal dislike on a third we settled on a fourth bow. Mind you it was still almost $600.00 but its no Mathews. Take a look on E-bay and see what bow holds the greatest used value...... There's a reason. I'm not bashing other bows! As others have said buy the best you can afford, look at quality used bows and make a decision.

Everyone I hunt with shoots a hoyt so i am a little bias when i say that they are by far he best and you should buy a hoyt... your best bet is to shoot as many different types as you can to find the one that fits you right

Mathews claims they are #1.here's how they are.they give their bow to every pro who will shoot it.that's why they cost so much.pse,bear,hoyt are all great bows.but,i would not own a mathews for that reason.are they the best?that's up for argument.shoot what feels good to you.don't buy a mathews because everyone has one.you decide.

Mathews is the best bow I've ever owned and I've had many over the years. They hold their value better than any other bow out there, just follow E-Bay, that should tell you something about their quality. There's nothing wrong with the top bows from other companies. However, If you're downing a Mathews bow without ever owning one, give me a break!

I am not downing mathews at all.all i am saying is that mathews wins the most tournaments.so people assume mathews is the best.they simply win, because more pro's are paid to shoot them.i am not saying that mathews is not the best.i don't know.all i'm saying is that don't be single minded.

I agree, try different bows in your price range and purchase what works best. There are several top bows out there, Mathews is just one. I personally like their products and will buy from them again.

I will now send out a subliminal encripted message..... "buy MATHEWS". Most of you will not actually see the message, only those wishing to purchase the best bow on the market will see it. Now that's funny even if you own a hoyt! I haven't even had my coffee this morning.
