    Hey guys, just sold a bow that didn't fit me so I'm looking for a new bow. I'm on a tight budget and have been looking at the Fred Bear Buckmaster, PSE Nova.... Does anyone have any suggestions that won't break the bank!

    You can find good deals used.... if you can tolerate a bow that is 2-3 years old. Check the classifieds here.... :biggrin1:

    new bow

    in 06 i started shooting compounds again and had the same issue so i bought a bowtech tomkat. it is a little noisy, freaky fast and there is a little bit of hand shock but nothing to worry about. Not bashing Hoyt but to be honest it shoot a lot like there new vectrix. instead of being $750-800 the tomkat is $450-500 bare or around $600 as a package from Bowtech.

    If you want a quality bow that doesn't break the bank, look at the Martin line. Very affordable and all excellent bows.

    hi, friend

    I see your on a budget and you mentioned in your list a PSE Nova
    Well this year Pse came out with the new Stinger at $299 ive seen it on e-bay selling at 275.00 if you get a chance shoot 1, i did and even though i buy bows that are a little higher in the food chain:lol:
    Im gonna get 1 before next hunting season.:D
     
  6. If you want to stay on a low budget, I would suggest that you go to a place like Cabela's, Bass Pro shops or Sportsmans Warehouse and try some of thier bows. All three of those places have a good selection of good lower priced bows that you can try out, JMO. Good luck in your choice.

    Thanks for all the input. I ended up with a Fred Bear Element. I ordered it online and have't received it yet.
