    That's not a bad price for a Truth bow.
    I shot one and thought they were pretty nice.
    The Martin Bengal bow for under $400 is a great bow too, just wish it had a rear stab hole and sealed limb pockets but for that price, I guess you gotta make cuts somewhere.
    New Breed Archery-Genetix 28.5"/ 60lbs & 365gr. = 285 FPS
    New Breed Archery- Eclipse 65/28.5" & 370gr. = 291 FPS
    Bowtech- 82nd Airborne 28.5"/ 60lbs. & 325gr. = 327 FPS
    Strother Archery- SR-71 28.5"/65lbs. & 370gr. = 303 FPS

    Well you must note that those are all yankie funds as well.
    So add about 20 bucks each

    I also looked at the bengal and thought it was a nice bow.
    But I really think I am going to be a fred bear man. I dont know what it is about those bows. BUT THEYRE JUST DARN SEXY!

    Bow choice is very personal. It is well worth the time and $$ spent to find a dealer where you can shoot a few. Then buy what you want and what feels and shoots best for you. Don't let a few $$ keep you from buying a Bow you really want, because in the end it will probably save you

    This advice is so,so true. I think we have all bought cheaper bows thinking they would be good enough and wishing we spent $100.00 for a better one. Archery is a lifelong commitment so don't be cheap

    Could be. My experience is from 3 yrs ago. When I called their customer service dept. they answered the phone "Escalade Sports". I asked if they had stickers, shirts, hats or anything with Jennings on it and they said they didn't do that. I hope they do improve because there is a lot of history and heritage behind those two names....

    Don't know about their customer service but those Bear bows are pretty nice shooters. I shot the element and instinct. I shot a Jennings Carbon Extreme for about 10 years and absolutely loved it. Good luck and have fun shopping.

    I would suggest if possible you also shoot bows from Mission,Reflex,Diamond.

    Kodiak Outdoors is a very nice bow. I shot must of the major brands and went with KO. Fast, quiet, smooth draw, lightwieght, everything you can ask for in a bow. Customer service is great also. Last season I had hit my cam on my tree stand when shooting at a doe and it tore it up. I called the company and within a week they had sent a brand new cam out to replace the damaged one. Couldn't belive they even talked to me after hearing some horror stories of other companies customer sevice departments. You won't be disappointed if you chose Kodiak Outdoors.
