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. :pickle:

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.

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

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
