I am new to this forum and I figured if I was going to stick with this then I should enlist some help. I am somewhat new to archery. I have been shooting for several years now yet I have never managed to get my own bow. I have shot several recurves in weight from 25-35 and a few Compounds ranging from 50-70lbs. I am looking to get a bow of my own now and I have been doing my homework on many different brands. I intended to purchase a Diamond Outlaw, however I came across Oneida Bows and fell into the allure of their unique design. I fell in love with the Kestral however it is out of my price range. I am currently fallowing a Left handed Tomcat on ebay at the moment for around 120. The seller claims he had shot it recently and it held up but it may be in great need of repair. I figure for that price I could buy the bow then do a complete restore. I am a Mechanic that has experience with Cars and Motorcycles. Not that bows are anything like the latter, but I feel as though if I could learn those trades I hopefully can pick up bow maintenance and repair as well. My question are, if anyone has had experience with this Bow before, what are some pros and cons. anything I should be worried about, performance issue, options on what I can do to improve it or if I should just spend a little more money on a different bow? Also if anyone can give me material on possible instructions on maintenance, as it seems trying to hunt down any kind of guide for Oneida is like pulling a tooth. I may just be missing something and hopefully someone here can help me.
