re: Looking to buy first bow(Posted by GetMoney11 on 10/4/12 at 1:11 pm to rsbd)
If I play my cards right I'll be able to buy both in about a month. Gotta get all my fun stuff bought before student loans start coming due in December. Been working like a fool since I graduated in may. Finally got a god bit of stuff paid off and bought me a yak last month.
I've had Bowtech bow for the last four years and wouldn't trade it for anything right now. Matthews ofcourse makes a good bow. you just need to shoot them A LOT before buying one. It also depends on what kind of hunting you're doing. I've been bow hunting deer since I was 12 so twenty years now and have PSE, Matthews and Bowtech. It's all about feel. Like buying a new putter if you play golf.
If you dont want to spend an arm and a leg I reccomend finding someone who shoots in archery tournaments and buying a used now from them. I have a friend who shoots in the ASA and I've bought 2 bows from him, a Matthews conquest 2, and a Matthews drenalin ld. The conquest wasn't camo so I sold it to my friend and bought the drenalin. I love it and only payed 300 for it fully rigged out.
