... I lied... So i walked in the place looking to buy a Hoyt... Lookin to put out $1100ish. So i say to the guy "Im new to bows... My cousin is just here to shoot/play around" "How much you looking to spend?" "Im looking to get a Hoyt or Mathews" "O well we got this Hoty... And this Mathews... (says the models, but i dont remember them)" "Aight cool, can we go try them out for a bit?" "Sure, nobodys up there" We get a release, 4 arrows total, and go shoot. So i get off about 10-15 shots and the guy walks up there and see's if everythings alright. I ask him how to use the release properly, because i didn't know, and he tells me... ok cool About another 10-15 shots the guy comes up and says "Ok $1200 or you got to go" We walked down and the clown is like "You guys are here just to shoot" I said, no, i was really looking to buy a bow... Then said cya. Went to Gander, and there was this experienced guy there who seemed to know what he was talking about, i told him whats up and he pointed me to a Diamond Ice, and a Parker Phoenix 34... So thats where i'm now. Tomorrow i will go try the diamond and the parker again, see which i like better... But thats my story with archery shops around here.
