    What would you consider a good beginners setup?

    I have went out twice with outfitters, and they supplied cajun bows.

    I would say anything you can afford. When you own a rig and can adapt it to yourself you will be "streets ahead" then borrowing a bow.
    I honestly have never even heard of someone using a rig from a outfitter. But hey if you did it and enjoyed it then you def need to get your own.


    When getting a new rig don't take advise from anyone. Shoot everything you can and pick the best one you can afford.
    Once you get your bow, come back and we can assist in all the other stuff.

    Have used my recurves I have made. But get pretty tired after shooting dozens of times with 50lb selfbow.

    Let me rephrase the question. Is there any huge notable differences between Cajun, AMS, Muzzy or even PSE?

    I looked into those bows and I have a question for you. Are you looking for and speaking of recurve or compound?
    My daughter has a PSE and it's been very dependable(compound) as for the others I'm sorry I have no info.

    Give us your intentions, budget and expectations and we can try harder to assist
