That leaves it pretty open. I would figure out what you are willing to spend on one...then I would go to your nearest bowshop and test them. Just about all the bows made nowadays are pretty good. I would go with any one that shoots and feels good to you....and fits your budget. Good luck

Yeah I request that you buy two and send one to me.

Try shooting a bunch of bows spend time looking at them with an expirenced pro shop. You'll find something that fits you and your budget... More importantly you. Buy once and buy exactly what you want. Make minimal compromises.

Dont get caught up in sales hype about speeds. Any of the new bows are plenty fast to suprise a deer. Its more important to be able to put the shot were you want then how fast it gets there.

I'd suggest looking into Mathews, Bowtech, and Hoyt. There are many other good companies. Read alot on the subject and you will get a feel of what important in some peoples opinion.

If I were to buy a new bow two requirements I have are 7"+ brace height and a firm backwall. I like thin hand grips to reduce torque. I like the silencer system of Mathews but dislike their back wall. I didn't like the cam over of the PSE X-force. I want to be able to smoothly draw a bow. I really like the some of the Bowtechs I shot.

the best way to find which bow is for you is to draw back a few different models and find out which one is the most comfortable. if it isn't comfortable, you'll never really like shooting it, and have a more difficult time getting consistent. Try a diamond, they are excellent bows made by bow-tech. bow-tech bow, with a cheaper price tag. the only difference is bow-tech sells diamond an unfinished bow, and diamond puts a different camo pattern on them, making them cheaper. the camo pattern just isn't a big $$ name brand, but still look good.

There are more differences than that, they are completely different bows. Diamonds are single cam bows and BowTech use binary cam technology. I will agree though, that Diamonds are good bows, good spead, and are quite quiet.

    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one. 
    • Great pictures by all that have shared thus far!    Three of my best or my favorites anyway...        
    • I was out and about wetland areas this weekend and saw lots of waterfowl.  Many trumpeter swans, high flying tundra swans, gadwalls, shovelers, a few wood ducks, ring necks, hooded mergansers, , a pair of goldeneyes, and a loon.  I also saw many sandhill cranes.
