Light draw bow

I am looking for a lightweight bow. 35-50lbs draw. I had my shoulder operated on in May and want to start shooting bow again. I haven't hunted with a bow in over 15yrs. I used to use a bow with 65lbs draw, but that aint gonna happen anytime soon. Would like to be able to add lbs as the shooulder gets stronger. I am kind of partial to the browning. If any one can help with places to look that would be great. Mr. Cool!

Light draw bow

Well you are Partial to the Brownings but there are Alot of Bows out there alot quieter and alot better than Them....Sorry I personally think Browning should stick to guns cuzz they suck at bows...Now...What we would need to know is what kind of money you are willing to Spend on a bare bow and we can all go from there. Just because its expencive doesnt make it good but there are a couple of Bows I have in Mind that would do the trick for you at 50 lbs pull and have plenty of speed to do the Job well. BowTech Has a Bow called OLD GLORY... Has from 40 to 70 pound Adjustment,,,,65% to 80% letoff adjustment...Plenty of Power and speed with great Brace height and Axel to Axel length for forgiveness... BowTech Also has the new Binary cam system that basicly eliminates Timing problems and noch travel.. Not sure on the bare bow price but thier top of the line tribute bow is 700 bare in most places and well worth it...Lifetime warrenty...And thier customer service is unmatched...I would guess that its between 500 to 600 for it but I personally believe its well worth the price for what you will have...And that is JUST what you asked for as well...a LOT of adjustment for you to get back into shape and even if you top out the weight you will still have a bow that will serve you for years to come...And NO I am not a rep for BowTech...Just a VERY satisfied customer and I always ad for the best I personally have used....Ive owned,,,,

Hoyts
Mathews (worst mistake of my life sept my 1rst wife)
Browning (wrapped that junker around a tree)
PSE
Hand Made Long Recurve
Reflex (lower end Hoyt)
And 3 BowTechs

I constantly upgrade is why Ive had 3... I feel BowTech stays on top of the Latest Technology and I cant resist new toys....But I always find good homes for my Old ones and have YET to get a complaint. Hope this Helps

Here is a link to BowTech and you can look at thier line and get a dealer nearest you...Give one a try and I think you will never look at any other bow again

I now have a pse nova for $169.00 and there is no comparision to the Browning junk . My son has a Browning boss hert nad it sounds like a sewing machine it's that noisy . Don't mean to be offensive . JUst my experiences with Browning
