Get a bow that fits you and you shoot well, it doesn't matter what name is on it. All i'll suggest is stick the top 4....Mathews, Hoyt, Bowtech and PSE.

gun870guy is right .everybody has their own preference the best way to find out the best bow for you is reserch and go to a shop and shoot several different makes and see whats best for you

All the companies make a good bow or they wouldnt still be in business. Look at Quest Archery and Martin Archery, they offer good bows at affordable prices.

I would Agree with Stapher1. Stick to those 4 but shoot a few models to find what feels best for you

Go to a place that sells them that has a range. Shoot every bow you can. Narrow it down, come back and shoot them all again. Pick 2 and then look at the price. You don't have to spend big bucks to be happy. Cash will not take you as far as practice will.
