Default Which bow should I chose?

I am currently looking into buying a new bow. I have not bow hunted in years and there is so many to chose from. I have narrowed it down to six. I have not had the oppurtunity to shot any of these bows. I am waiting on my local pro shop to get in the Rapture before I go for a visit. I have listed the six I have pick. Any help or opinions on the matter would be appreciated. Thanks.
PSE Brute
Diamond Rapture
Reflex Highlander
Bear Element
Bowtech Tomcat
Bowtech Mission OBS

You should go to a pro-shop and shoot the bows that you feel are good
I would recommend a BowTech, They are fast and quiet

Try shooting them, the tomkat has hardly KE, unless you wanna shoot heavy arrows, but that means less speed

I see you have a bear element on your list. I would check out the bear truth also ! I here it's a good bow for the $ . I never shot one just going by word of mouth.

well if you got a chance for a bear instinct instead of the element go for it and try it but if you can try shooting the bows to see what feels best
