    Question Looking for a real good bow

    I'm new to the forum, but not new to archery. I basically took 25 years off. I shot targets on a regular basis back then, with a Jennings compound (long gone). I want to get back into it and I'm looking for a great used bow (targets and eventually hunting). I like what I hear about the Mathews bows, but was told by one source to shy away from the Z-max (stiff and unforgiving). I'm a lefty, so my used choices are limited (Ebay). Thanks in advance for your opinions. Roy

    Tell us a little more about the plans for your new bow. Are you only interested in target shooting or do you also plan to hunt with this bow. Also, if you plan on target shooting, do you know what types you will want to participate in? 3D, Field, Indoor 300?

    Give us a little more info and it will help point you in the right direction.

    All I shot years ago were outdoor targets (a range in the hills west of Oakland, CA). I'm limited here on the Western Slope of CO. I'd say at this point just targets in Grand Junction. Maybe set up a couple of 3D's on my property in S.E. Utah. I'm 5-11, 160 lbs and I'm pretty sure my draw is about 27 3/4". I'm thinking my draw weight is 60#.

    If your going to primarily shoot targets and want a mathews, then look at the ovation. Good shooting bow. Not super fast but it's forgiving. It would also make a good hunting bow but it's much bigger than the outback.

    What do you all think about the new Martin bows out there??

    The new martin bows are nice too. I recommended the mathews because that is what he was interested in. If rfield54 wants other recommendations, there are plenty of other bows worth looking at.

    For targets, the Martin Scepter is really a nice bow.

    If you want to look at hoyt, check out the protec or proelite

    Just my opinion.
