WELL, YOU HAVE ALOT TO CHOOSE FROM FOR THAT PRICE. If you meant $500 for the bow only (no accessories included) then look at the Bowtech ES and Mighty Might. Mathews FX and SQ2 are good choices also. If you meant $500 for the bow, sight, quiver, arrows, peep, stabilizer, arrows, etc. then I would lean toward the Browning Tornado, PSE Fireflight, Pearson, and MANYother brand bows. One thing - most all modern bows will be " fast" , but sometimes a bow is better when it shoots smoother and quieter at 270 FPS than a bow that is noisy at 300 fps. I consider anything above 260 FPS fast - especially if shooting aluminum arrows. I' m glad that my wife bought me my FX!

you really need to check out the PARKER line of bows....i shoot the ULTRA-LITE 31, but it is their premium bow,529.00 for just the bow...the PARKER HUNTER MAG is less expensive but just as nice...all PARKERS are lifetime luck

Dito on the Parkers. You can get the fether mag or hunter mag package for right about $500. They also have the UL31 outfitter package for about $600

i would recommend the Buckmaster G2 or G2XL bows that retail for 499.00. they are comparable in speeds of other bows in this range. they have a very adjustable cam with modules and they are built very well. they shoot great to with a very forgiving 7 1/2" brace height and the G2xl is built with a long riser that aims like a longer bow making it more forgiving. i like mine and will hunting everything from Pa whitetail to Tenn. wild boar and hopefully a bear trip to Maine.

Perhaps I am biased but, this is part of the reason I keep hunting with my Martin Cougar Magnum. Under $500 and very fast!

36 1/2" axle to axle, 6.5" brace height, choice of 65% or 75% letoff modules.

I have not had any experience with this brand of bows, but their was a post a few days ago about " Diamond" bows. Sounded like a lot of people liked them, quiet & fast. Might be worth checking into.

You may also want to check out this web site for a start.
