Which Bow to Get....?

Question: If you guys had about $400 to spend on a new bow, which one would it be?

Thanks in advance!

I'd look at the Bowtech TomKat. It will cost more than $400, but it is a complete package. I bought one and it is a very nice bow.

TomKat all the way; I have an Allegiance all decked out and love it. Shoot with some guys who shoot TomKat's and they love their bows.

Thanks for the input!

I found the Bowtech TomKat on the Hunters Friend website. I don't know if you're familiar with Hunters Friend, but I guess they completely deck out your bow for you plus you get a hard case, arrows...the works when you order from them. Anyway, I was looking at the PSE Stinger, also.

It's about $100 less, but rates about the same as the TomKat. Any opinions on PSE bows?

Thanks!

PS/ Here's the link if you want to compare.

I have had two PSE bows in my lifetime. They are good bows.

Try to shoot both of them and see which one you like better. It is important that the bow fits you.

The most important thing is not to worry so much about the "brand" but find one that fits you, fit of the bow is really important...more so than the brand.

i suggest you check out the mathews Mustang . Just bought one this year for my adult daughter to shoot in 3d's with dad and she loves it. Already she has topped her previous best score by far. Her old bow was a PSE.. Quality arrows are IMHO more important than the brand of bow. Buy the best you can afford. In the long run they have been cheaper for me because they rarely break. I shoot Carbon Force Maxima Hunters with Blazer vanes.
