    Bows under 200 dollars

    Looking for a good used bow for under $200.00. I'm just getting back into archery after 20 years or so. What Brands do you folks reccommend, for a decent performing bargain bow? I plan on looking for a used one, maybe on Ebay. I want a left hand bow, 29" draw, 55-70lbs weight, But I would like a bow that's not too old and so will still have parts available for it after a few years. I have two Golden Eagle bows, one busted, and GE is long gone out of business. Could you guys offer me some advice? Thanks a lot

    I would look under the classifieds on here. You can usually find great deals for decent bows.

    I bought 4 bows from Buellhunter at doublelung archery. 2 of them I paid 100 apiece and they are good shooting bows. One was a parker extreem and the other was a Jennings buckmaster 2000. The each cam with arrow rests and peeps. The string were good on them and I have tuned them to myself and my arrows and they hold very good groups.

    Bear element or instinct were both made about 5 years ago and very respected. Bear is a great company and many shops service them. They are also in your price range. I just sold my 2008 instinct in the classifieds for $220 loaded with everything and bought a Mathews. I wish I Would've kept it as a back up!!!

    I would also suggest trying to find one on AT classifieds as the prices are alot more fair. The prices get way overbid most of the time on eBay because people don't know what it's worth they just want it. Craigslist is also horrible and all you hear is well it was $xxx much new and it's only been shot xxx times. It's sad but bows depreciate as fast as electronics.

    Most people on AT will accept MO or paypal and are very honest with shipping charges. I've saved almost half off my bow and all accessories on AT!

    Oneida! I was wondering if compound recurves were still around. I can see advantages to such a setup. I think I would like one too myself

    This is my 7th new Hoyt in 30 years of bowhunting, it is by far the best bow I have ever shot. My Maxis was a good bow but not a great improvement over my HavocTec, but this is a huge improvement over the Maxis. Smoooootthhhh drawing and shooting, no torque or vibration, and super silent.

    I shoot a 30" draw @ 60lbs. draw weight with a 513 grain total arrow weight and I am getting 255 fps W/75 ft. lbs. kinetic energy. The weight is super light, and absolutely shock free on the shot, zero torque and the finest bow I have shot in 30 years of bowhunting. I can not believe the accuracy of this bow, out to 40 yards it drives tack’s, I am afraid to shoot groups with it in fear of robin hooding arrows. I would recommend this bow to anyone who want’s the finest hunting bow available. It will be my last bow at 58 years of age, I will never need another in my life time, I don’t know what more I could want!

    This is a great bow review. Now we just have to guess which bow it is.
