The guys at the local club always would always recommend buying a year or so old $800 bow from the guys that trade up pretty regularly. If you're not an odd draw length or left handed you may fare very well trying that.

Also, I've seen a great many 2007 close out new bows with large mark downs on them. It's worth a look unless you're heart is stuck on a 2008 bow.

Holdover PSE Diablo.

My fiend shoots a Drenalin and almost cried when he shot my Diablo and I told him since PSE is pushing them out in favor for the split limbs as their top bow that they are going for less less than $400. He could have saved a couple hundred bucks.

If you don't mind secondary market (*cough* AT *cough*) they are selling new Diablo even as low as nearly $300.

Hello,
I am going to give you information from an article printed in the June/July 2008 Issue of OutdoorLife magazine. The article is titled "Best Bows Under $400". I will list the five bows in the same order as OutdoorLife, but the article never says if the first bow listed is their number one pick or if it is just the first one they tested.

1. Parker Wildfire XP (parkerbows.com) $320, 3.7 pounds (lbs), and 300 feet
per second (fps).

2. Diamond "The Rock" (diamondarchery.com) $399, weight not listed, and
310 fps.

3. PSE Brute NI (pse-archery.com) $399, 4.5 pounds, and 308 fps.

4. Browning Strata MT (browning-archery.com) $329, weight not listed, and
304 fps.

5. Alpine Frontier (alpinearchery.com) $315, 3.5 pounds, and 300 fps.

I hope this helps. The article also gives more info like "Tale Of The Tape" and "What We Liked", so if you want some more info on any/all the bows just let me know!! By the way, Mudvayne rules!!!!

hay hay hay now i shoot a martin saber se and i would not trade it for any Mathews out there when i got my bow i was not concerned about saving money i got in my eyes a top of the line bow say what you want but with Mathews you are paying for you limbs to say that fancy name and your advertisement they are good bows but are way to high in price.

when i got my martin i could of walked out of my pro shop with a DXT i asked the guy names aside what is a better bow and he told me the martin so that is what i got and he could of told me the DXT to get more money but he did not so you tell me what the guy at me pro shop is telling me

Check it out. I tried one at my local shop that just happened to have one set up for a 29" draw a couple of months ago and it was nice.
