Question by ADKHunter. Uploaded on November 04, 2009
I'm a new, future young bow hunter myself. been looking for bows for a while now. I've found a really good bow for starters, but can also be a good bow for older hunters. The Diamond razor edge. Its a good overall bow. Can be purchased reasonably. Approximately $325 for a new package. The great thing about it is the draw weight ranges from 30-60lbs. Hope this helps.
The parker sidekick is a good one, you should chec it out on their website. google for it. hope it helps
Mathews makes one that will "grow" with you.
Welcome to the "family" !
go for a medium sized bow not to small u can grow out of a bows length. i would suggest going to an archery store to ask a few questions and get proper adjustments made to the bow you do buy. many bows are very adjustable in draw length and weight most archery shops will make these adjustments for free upon buying the bow or for a very small fee. i have had my hoyt checked every year for 4years and my draw length has gone from 27 to 31inchs and i now shoot 75lbs i started at 50. hoyt trykon
I started out with a Hoyt Rintec which was a really good bow for me which i have outgrown it and need to get another one. I would offer to sell it to you.
PSE for sure, hate to disagree with Big O's logic but other then speed the matthews bow will cost you a bit more cause if you want to grow with it your going to probably want to silence it. A pse nova was my first bow and that thing is deadly as all get out.
I'd agree with CodyBoyd. I just got my oldest boy a Parker Sidekick, and I bought the extra limbs for it already so he can grow into it. He just started shooting, and this bow fit him very well. In the end, it is what feels best on your hand and what you are comfortable with.
