    There are A lot of options out there.
    Mathews Ovation, Apex, Apex 7, Conquest 4,
    Bowtech Constitution, Commander.
    Those are A few options that you could look at but they are not cheap. Good luck, Danny

    If you are just getting into target archery you can keep the entire setup under 700.00 by buying everything used. I just about finished my target bow and I'm looking at about 650.00 total, my buddy just started building his on a Pearson Gen 2 and it looks like he'll come in around the 700 mark.

    I'm setting up a Darton Vegas, and I should be under $600...Probably less than half of a new setup...It just takes alittle longer to find deals...

    Bowtech Constitution

    Hoyt Pro-elite,38 Pro

    I ended up going with an 05 Ovation for my target setup. Slow but shoots REAL smooth and I'm not using it for 3-D so I wasn't worried about speed. I'll use my OG for 3-D and crank the poundage up to 72 or so, get a 360 gr arrow and sling it at 310 FPS ;P

    The S4 is supposed to be an amazing bow... but the price tag matches it. I could have gotten a used Apex 7 for 550 or so which was still out of my price range, cheapest S4 I found was about 600 i think....

    when you limit yourself to 350 or less for the bow your options get limited as well.

    Very good point, its nice to think someone else paid for 1/2 of your bow.

    So tell us how is the Slovation shooting??

    I found a Black Cherry Icon for sale!!!! But then you guys would say I shot a Pink bow.:doh:

    Stupid Mathews still hasn't gotten the cams over here so its still not setup :mad: I shot it at 29" last night and it is defiantely a smooth shooting bow, however without a peep it makes it a little hard to aim and the 40+ AtA puts the top cam almost to the floor boards so I decided to put it down after the first shot

    I shoot mostly 3-D and target for fun and i got a Switchback XT and sure-loc supreme sights with a viper scope with x4 mag. i love it still gettin used to 80 % let-off and all that not shooting too great with it but im only pulling 46 pounds because im young but i love the bow. The reason i got the switchback is for hunting and target when hunting comes around i will swith everything around.
