Default First bow

Ok with all my questions around the forum I am sure I am starting to sound like a idiot by now and some here is wanting to do this haha but I am looking for a new bow and all I have so far is that I want a single cam 26-27'' draw length and about 35-50lb draw I have a budget of $350 for everything and I was looking at this

Which would leave me about $70 for accessories which brings me to another questions which accessories are most important?

I was thinking this http://www.basspro.com/RedHead-XPS-C...95772/-1377250

and this http://www.basspro.com/Doinker-Chubb...06804/-1704735


What do you guys think?

You will need a quiver and maybe a stabilizer. Quiver would be the first thing I bought for it. I think you could get a better bow, more set up, for just a little more money... But, I'm sure that bow would be just fine for a beginner not wanting to spend allot of money, not knowing if they will stick with it or not...

I wouldn't worry too much about a stab right now.. you can shoot the bow without them.

worry about getting the bow, correct arrows, a release, quiver, and then start fine tuning as your budget allows.

I am a big fan of Parker Bows. They provide a bow ready to shoot out of the box. Take a look at this one. A little more but everything is on it.
They are USA made. Great customer support.

Parker also has program that you can upgrade bow as you grow with it.

Yep Parker does make some nice bows also. The side kick bow isn't a bad deal at all. I just bought my wife a redhead Micro XSC from Bass Pro, Parker makes them for Bass Pro.

Parker are made in Staunton Virginia.
