    Question Bear Archery

    I am looking at buying my first bow and am trying to decide which way to go. The pro shop I went to and will buy my bow through said that the 2010 Bear Charge RTH package would be a good entry level bow that would offer me the opportunity to learn but also would give me the chance to upgrade as I got better.

    I have also seen online that Bear offers a 2010 Bear Strike RTH package. Now, to me, this essentially looks like the same bow and has every similar performance specs, with the exception of the dual string suppressors with rubber dampeners on the bow.

    So I guess what my question to the community is; is it worth roughly the extra $100 on the price tag to get the suppressors on the Strike or does it not make enough of a difference because this is going to be my first bow?

    I do plan on hunting with it though, just not until I get proficient with it.

    The two major differences is seen where as stated: 1. string suppressors and 2. string material. With that said, for you first bow, I don't think I could justify the extra $100. Chances are you will upgrade sooner rather than later if you like archery. The resale value difference on the bows will not be enough to overcome the $100. Just my opinion

    Probably the most important things starting out are having the bow set up correctly: draw weight, draw length, peep height, etc. Also, get w/ a coach or someone who can give you one on one lessons to get you going in the right direction. This will shorten your learning curve significantly. The last thing you want to do is learn incorrectly then try to go back in relearn your old habits.
