    ok so i got a ( Bear Ultra Lite) a while back and I'm selling it for 60 dolors. It comes with a trigger release, one arrow (I lost the others lol), sight, arrow rest, and quiver. should i increase the price or not?

    anyways I'd like a new bow that can pull at least 50lb if not more. I was wondering what bow I should get? Since I don't have a ton of money I only can spend 100 or more depending on how much I sell my bow for. I know It's not a lot of money to spend on a bow but It's what I got since I own a horse. so what bow should i get?


    ps. I'm selling it because its to small for me and only goes up to 45lb.


    thanks for your time and help

    After You sell the bow I would wait and save up a little more and buy the bow I want. No sense buying something you might not like. You sound young and have plenty of time. No sense throwing good after bad. Save a little more and get what you want. When the new bows come out (soon) you'll start seeing more adds for used bow and even newer one's :welcome:

    I agree with skeeter, just save up some cash and buy a bow you really like. No sense in buying a bow you wont be happy with, for $150 your selection of quality bows is pretty much 0. I am sure there are some garage sale pse's out there, but you will be in the same place you are now next season. Just save up.

    I know Oneida bows "can" be crazy loud, I would shoot one first. As far a a beginner bow that depends on you and your likes/dislikes. your best bet is to go to your local archery shop and shoot that way you can find out what bow feels most comfortable. Good luck!
