I might be new to this sight, but deffinitely not new to archery. As soon as I was strong enough to my father got me hooked.
For a great place to chat with unlimited numbers of experienced archers I would check out Sight called archerytalk.com they do everything from bow tune up to sales.
I myself am an avid Hoyt shooter the reliability of your bow is just as important as the comfort. Learn how to shoot before purchasing a bow if at all possible. This way you can tell what is right for you.
The thing to remember about archery is tuning is key. If your bow isn't matched with the right equipment( arrows, peep size, release,ect.) then your preformance will undoubtedly be frustrating. If you go into it with a mindset that it's going to be an adventure, scoping out the best matching equipment, learning nomenclature of your bow. If you are patient and diligent you will find that a perfectly tuned bow that fits you will just about shoot itself.
A word of caution however this is the most addicting substance on earth, delivering a high that can't be equaled, and there is no known cure.
