its hard to find a bad bow these days. it really comes down to fit and feel and even looks! i have been out of the game for almost ten years and couldnt be happier i decided to return!! i was blown away by the advancements that have been made, i personally love the pse line, they have come a loooong way. i took my time and looked at many different bows. mathews, hoyt, bowtech, g5 quest, even darton. they all make a fine bow. i did alot of research online by simply googling diferent bows and reading reviews. watch vids on you tube.

I would rather get a top of the line used rig a coupla years old vs a new middle of the road rig.

Lots of great offerings these days! The Bowtech Assassin package is tough to beat for a top of the line starter. 7" BH/330 ibo complete w/ rest, sight, quiver, and wrist sling for $500.

The K&K Vengeance is overall, the most impressive bow I've shot to date. MSRP $769. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9q5h41PYfk

If price is a consideration, have a look at the Alpine line this year. Great bows at incredible prices in comparison. Strother Valor is another high value price point bow. Bowtech Assassin also seems to be an exceptional value if you're looking for an entire package. It was so refreshing to see so many respectably priced offerings this year. But it would be difficult to find a bad bow regardless of what you choose.

The Best bows I've shot so far this year are:

1. Hoyt Carbon Element
2. The BowTech Invasion shot nice

I hope to shoot a Maitland Retribution soon as their 2011 bows with the new VTR cams are starting to ship.

I'll either set up a Retribution or a Carbon Element for my personal bow.

New Z7 Mag is a surprizing tack driver. I bought it for a hunting bow but now am considering selling my C3 conquest because the Z shoots indoor dots effortlessly.

Same specs and looks of every other bow he has ever made...

When are people gonna stop following him around with their noses so close to his ass that if he stopped quick they would know what he had for lunch....

HE IS A JOKE plain and simple....

I've shot the Vengeance, and a lot of other bows over the last 5 years. None of the others measure up. That's not just an ignorant, arrogant statement. It's hands on experience.

Talking Here's what I think !

I've brought new bows before and will again , but I still have an old Jenny's Buckmaster ( the first model @ 39 ATA of which they made alot ) and find it is still a good shooting bow with a few added on accessories it does just fine , after all it's got a lifetime warrenty !

I just can't see any advantage to getting rid of a bow , as I own about nine of them now ! The bows today are mostly all well made and get a short life for no good reason , but the owner just wanting the latest bow and that's the owners chioce as it ain't my money !

We just got our K&K Vengeance. It is now on the best bow slot on our bow rack. It is by far better than any Strother bows, or Elite bows we have owned or have tried.
