    Hi guys, I'm sure this has probably been covered here and I apologise for a new thread. I'm a beginner and was wondering what is the best bow me. I don't want the cheapest thing out there but don't want to break the bank either.

    Thank you for your time and advice.
    Scott

    Everyone is gonna tell you to get to a shop and find out what you like the best. Lol which is the best advice. But I’m gonna have to recommend Mathews haha the mission line is very affordable and they are awesome bows! Good luck bud.

    I think Mission would be what you need. I know several people with them.

    Either Mission or bear would be my recommendation but go to your local shop and shoot all the different ones to find which you like!

    Eh ... I like the Diamond bows.

    As others have said, trying some bows (and different releases) out at the shop if that is an option and getting what feels the best would be the wisest choice.
    Advantage of buying from a shop instead of online is the bow shop will set the bow up so it fits you for both draw length and draw weight.
