There are many great bows out now. I shoot a Hoyt now myself, but I would recommend you go see what feels the best to you in your buggett. I think the Fred bear bow line is nice on price and has been a great starter for most of us archers. I would think you'll want 40/50 lbs limbs, starting off pulling 40, shoot as much as you can daily but stop before arms fatigue. Shooting with fatigued arms will only caz you frustration in sloppy shooting.
