There is no answer to this question. Test them all that fit within your price range and take it from there.

MD is right. You can't really go by looks or price. It's gotta all be how it feels to you.

I agree...go to a pro shop and shoot what you can in that price range or a little higher if you can. For close to that price, you really might want to look at the Reflex line of bows. They are a great bow for the money, and probably the route I will go when I upgrade in a couple of months.

You may want to try and purchase a used bow that is maybe a couple of years old. Usually you can find a great quality bow that is loaded for right around $300. EBAY is always a good spot.

Ebay is ok if you know EXACTLY what you want. Personally,I would NEVER buy a bow I couldn't shoot first, and that includes one from a buddy. We see horror stories at the shop all time. It goes something like this:

"I just bought this bow from a buddy of mine. I got a great deal on it, but the draw length is too short. Can you make it longer?"

Sometimes we can, but most often we can't. The moral of this story is this. Had that same guy SHOT the bow before he bought it, he would have known that and not wasted his money. Same w/ mail order bows. Unless you've shot the brand and make of bow you are buying, it's just a stupid move. If you know nothing of the bow you are purchasing, I can all but guarantee you that you won't be happy with it. Ok, I'm off that soapbox now.

Head to the shop. Tell them your budget, and see what they can do for you.

I would recommend to check out the Reflex line. I have the Buckskin and it is a very good bow for the money.
