Craigslist post ID #'s that sound like nice set ups
2731836314
2686922277
Those both look like good craigslist finds in your area for the money, and with cash you could probably get them both down a few bucks

I was able to pick up a Martin bow for a great price and I love it. I highly recommend a Martin bow!

You need to know your draw leingth! There are many bows out that the draw is not adjustable without putting in a press and changing out modules. And some of them you probably couldn't even get anymore on a older bow. If you don't know your draw, go to a bow shop they will tell you for free.

I have worked for several bow companies and up until a few years ago, shot about every bow on the market. I can tell you a couple things I know for sure.

1- The best bow you will ever shoot is the bow you shoot the best.

2- I would never, ever, buy a bow I could not shoot. And I mean shoot at least 30 times before buying. If that means spending extra money or driving extra miles to get it, that is what I would do. I wouold not get a mail order bride and I would not buy a bow I had not shot.

And that, mommies and daddies, boys and girls, is all I have to say about that.

Unless you know your exact draw weight and length and could shoot the bow, Craig's list would be the very last place to purchase a bow from. Now, head to a Bass Pro shop have them set up a bow for you which will determine your draw weight and draw length. You then can look locate a really good bow at a great price and have a good feeling that you have done your homework, made a purchase that is with-in your budget, and will fit your needs. Down the road when the budget allows a new bow may be on the to do list. Cam design is the single biggest componet for a shooter's comfort when drawing the bow. Pay a lot of attention to the draw cycle and your comfort level. With today's bows there is no reason for a hard cam.
