    I am in the process of purchasing my first compound bow. I am looking local on Craigslist. I have found a [FONT=&quot]PSE F1 Maxis bow with a hard case and 20 arrows. It says it was restrung 3 years ago. Do you think it would be worth it for $100 for a first bow?

    Welcome to the site and the fun. I would say to probably restring it if you purchase it. I would first ask the guy if he'd be willing to meet you at a local bow shop and let them look it over. Just a thought. Best of luck and practice practice practice.
