Best bow to look for under 400 dollars
I'm just a kid trying to get a nice bow that he's not going to have to work on. It seems every bow I've gotten in the past, (PSE, namely), has required too much work and time in the bow shop. I want to either find a deal on this site or on craigslist but it's hard to find the right fit. I have quality attachments such as rest and sights and what not from my previous bow ventures. Any suggestions on some lower priced new bows or some quality used ones I should be on the lookout for? Any suggestions from you fellas will help. 28" draw and 70# is about what I shoot.

just search the classifieds here. Dig deep through em. Unfortunately there aren't many 400 dollar brand new bows being produced. Check local pawn shops also, One near me has some sweet deals right now.

if you look around you could probably find a used model for around $400 I think I payed $450 for an hoyt alphamax on here once.

Also look at the Mission Craze. Being a kid you have to worry about outgrowing a bow and the craze will adjust as you grow. It is a very good bow. I started out with one 2 years ago. And they are only $299 brand new!

Diamond Infinite Edge - great first bow. They go for $350. With the 50 bucks you have left over, junk the sight and get one with no tool adjustment of elevation and windage.
Frankly, the Infinite Edge is just as accurate as my Hoyt Alpha Elite. (Can I say that here, without grief from the Hoyt fanboys?)

Mission riot has a better feel then the craze and you won't out grow it.

I purchased an infinite edge this spring and it's an incredible value. Lots of performance for the money.
A buddy bought one as a back-up bow and ended up using it as his primary over a bowtech 82nd airborne.

I would order a Hoyt charger. Top of the line technology at a low entry price. They cost less because of the riser material, but you won't notice the difference.
What I use:
2015 Hoyt Podium X40 (Two of them)
2014 Hoyt PCE Red Fusion GTX
2013 Hoyt Matrix AP Snow

Hoyt Alphamax 35 is a great choice. Even an older Hoyt like a Ultratec would be just dandy.

Watch the classifieds. I picked up a gently used Infinite Edge for $300 on the classifieds with release, stab, stock sight, rest, quiver, and 4 carbon express arrows. Looks like it was hardly shot. My wife claimed it immediately. So I hit the classifieds again and got a Razor Edge w 30-60# limbs for 200 w stock sight, rest, quiver. Also looks great. May not be the best deals ever, but good enough for me.

A Mission Craze would be perfect for you!
