hoyt turbo hawk

I am new to archery hunting and have spent the last few days going to different pro shops in my area looking at new bows.  Today I looked at a Hoyt turbo hawk and it seemed to feel good.  The shop owner allowed me to shoot it and it was pretty nice from my perspective.  I just don't know how good a bow that model is.  I do know that it is what thats in my price range.  I looked at a Matthews Z7 and fell in love but to get one of those and set it up is way out of my range.  Any imput would be appreciated.

Your going in the right

Your going in the right direction. Try as many bows as you can in YOUR PRICE RANGE then pick the one that feels the best. I wouldnt try ones out of my range cause you'll fall in love and the ones you can afford wont feel right. As far as that model I havent heard anything about it, have you found any reviews online to read, thats usally what i do.

numbnuts I haven't checked reviews.  Great suggestion.  I just took a shortcut and ask on here.  But I think I will do some research on the reviews.  Any suggestions on links to check out?

It is a great bow.  I am huge

It is a great bow.  I am huge Hoyt fan, and have considering picking one for a back up bow and for 3D.  I have a Hoyt katera and love it.  If you are maybe interested in a used bow, send me a PM and I know another forum that has a great selectiuon to choose from.  Alot of time you can get a 1 year old bow and save hundereds of dollars.  Just do not know if I can post the web page here with out getting in any trouble.

Thanks goose hunter jr.  I

Thanks goose hunter jr.  I appreciate the offer on the used bow website, however, I think I will stay with a new one from my pro shop.  This will be only my second nice bow to ever own and this owner has been so nice to show me models and answer questions.  I fill as if I owe it to him to shop there.  If I was more experienced and educated on archery I might by used but right now I think I will stay with the pro shop.  Thanks for the encouraging word on the bow.  I think I will try to pick one up soon.
