Default Best Bow for the Money!...........?

So i am now 14 years old, just grown out of my youth bow and i need a new one. I do not have a job nor does my dad (used to be a drug rep.)
obviously i cant just go out and by a 1000$ matthews but i do LOVE bear! I've been using there bows for as long as i can remember and ive taken two bucks with mine. I have been looking at the Charge and the Mauler. i cant believe that the charge is only 300$ not set up. the mauler is 400$ not set up ad ive done research on the charge and everyone has been saying its the best bow in its price range. what do you think, suggestions? preferences? etc. thanks for the help.

My first three bows were bear bows. For the price you can't beat em. I would defenetely go with a bear if you are on a budget.

My friend just got a charge the other day and he says he loves it. It looks like and sounds like it is smooth to me.

Check out the Diamond Razors Edge package. That bow will do you until you can afford your $1000 Mathews, if that's what you want!

I bought one for my son and it is really a fine bow for $400!!

I got the Bear charge and I love it. I smoked this bad boy with the charge this year! Its so smooth and quiet. Put the sims dampening system on the bow to reduce the hand shock and you got a bow that has the quality of i higher end bow.

PSE makes some nice bows that are inexpensive. I shoot a PSE stinger, which goes for 299 bare bow. No complaints here. Kills deer just fine.
