Default Help a first time bow hunter please

I have a choice between these used bows and know nothing about them.

Parker Wildfire XP
Hoyt Cybertec
Bowtech General
or slightly more PSE Sinister

These are the ones the local shop have in my price range
Opinions on which is best for a first time bow hunter
Thanks in advance

All good bows but if I were you I would shoot each one and see which one feels best to you. If they all are similar I'd opt for the General.

I had, and used Hoyt bows for over 30 years. Never has one let me down.

iv'e always shot hoyt they are great bows but the most important part is getting a bow that fits you properly then getting it set up correctly and making sure it's quiet not only when shooting it but also give it a good shaking make sure there are no rattles then shoot shoot and shoot some more when i started out i would shoot 20-30 arrows a day to build your shooting strength because when you have buck fever and it's freezing outside you need that strength and repetition habit.hope this helps and good luck !!

decent name brands but this is the best advice. Also see which one you can hold at full draw the longest. Thats what really matters.

Just curious on how one would test your suggestion of holding at full draw? Would you test this on different trips?

If you don't mind explaining, not looking for an argument just curious as when I take folks to the gym for training alot of individuals will be capable of performing one action good once, their repetitive actions will be diminished due to energy expended. So the possible best bow he can hold at full draw may not be realized due to fatigue caused by drawing and holding several bows prior to that.

this is a 3 yr old post your replying to??
so I doubt your going to get a answer

my guess ??
would be he was sort of saying to draw each bow and see what one has the most let off, which should make holding at full draw the easiest?
I personally wouldn;'t choose a bow this way
like a gun, fit is to me more important, and with archery, its honestly IMO all about form, the better your form the better you shoot, so having a bow that fits best, tends to allow shooter to shoot it the best!
