less than $600. one of my friends son bought the diamond rapture. he got it set up with half a dozen arrows for $500 bucks. he seems very happy with the bow too. ive shot and was quite impressed myself. got any bow shops near you? go shoot a few of them in your price range and see what feels best for ya. then your choice is easy. it dont matter what brand it is as long as it does the job and you like the feel and ease of use. hope that helps a little

dont get caught up in the how much weight i can pull trap.A lot of people think the more i can pull the better the bow.a45# bow will kill any deer walking the planet.the avg draw weight is 62#'s people buy 70#and tune it down.A heavier draw will cause to you to strain and shake .My advice for what bow to buy would be this go to a store or pro shop ask questions try the bows see how they feel hopefully they will let you shoot them,most wont.get fitted for the bow draw length and poundage.Dont worry bout names find the one that fits you right,some have thick/ thin grips are you gonna be stalking ,sitting in a tree ,box blind,,?you need to get the right length ,i like a shorter bow.others prefer long limbs.Your going to be spending alot of money so spend wisely.ask tons of questions if the salesman becomes annoyed find another store your going to need service at least once a year ask about that.Im sure other guys will bring up other points i havent had my coffee yet.DONT RUSH INTO IT .Your most likely gonna be shooting this bow for a long time to come

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.

way to go the twitch was probably from shooting to heavy a draw weight
