And that, mommies and daddies, boys and girls, is all I have to say about that.
I could not agree more would be like buying a car without a test driving it
Also I would check your local bow shops personally I like dealing with the local guy's over the box stores I feel the service is better & would rather give my money to a local shop

First time in my life I have ever heard a bow referred to as manly. They need to incorporate that in their ads..."It is manly, too."

I would look into either Diamond bows, or Bears. They do the work of a high end bow and they dont cost as much. they may not be as smooth but for a first bow they get the job done. The diamond Outlaw is the top seller at the store i work at.

I would check into a year or two old Bear bow. My buddy got a 2yr old model fully set up for around $300. I was never a fan of Bear Archery, but it draws smoother than my Hoyt Rampage XT, is more affordable, and shoots very well. After seeing and handling his, I have to say Bear puts out a pretty good product! Especially if you are new to the sport and are wanting to fit into your budget.

My only suggestion is shoot a TON of bows before you decide on one....each bow is different to each person
