buck bows were made by champion, they are the ones that the lawsuit went after. buck knives just commisioned them to build it with their name.
from what little i know about champion, they made a good, quality bow for the price. the buck bows are what would be considered entry level, but that doesnt mean they wont do the intended purpose.
as long as you give the bow proper care and feeding, and get it outfitted correctly, you will do plenty fine. only so much the stick and string can do and then it becomes all indian.
I am an archer. It doesnt matter what venue i shoot, I AM an archer
