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
