    my bow that i have for sale in all seriousness what are you looking for in a bow? what type of hunting do you usually do? what are your specs? draw length, lbs you can pull comforatably...stuff like that would be useful in reccommending a bow to you.

    Check out the fred bear bows. martin as well... but if your looking to just spend 3-400 you should look at used bows. becuase if you buy a new bow for 3-400 your going to spend 2-300 more setting it up with sight,arrows,rest,quiver, release and paying to get the work done on it.. I would check out used bows with everything on it. go to ebay. you could prob spend 4-500 and not have to spend anymore than that. just a thought.

    Depends on what you're looking for. Check out this site: http://www.huntersfriend.com/compoun...pound-bows.htm There are some great deals on the closeout section right now. But most guys will tell you to go shoot everything you can get your hands on, then decide what feel right for you. Based on "spec's" alone, I think something like a PSE Brute, Martin Sabre, or Martin Bengal or Cheetah may be the best "Bang for your Buck$$$."

    The new Bear lightsout and the bear showdown look good for the price, both have an 8.75 brace height as well.

    I agree, for the money they can't be beat. I would personally reccomend you look for a bow here in the classifieds, a couple year old Hoyt or Mathews can be in your price range.

    I'm a huge fan of the AT Classifieds. You can get great deals on bows that are only a couple years old and in good condition. Plus, you'll save money that you can then spend on your accessories.

    Look at the Martin Moab, bow is great and is under $400. I would say the best bang for your buck out there. Shoots aswell as bows in the $700 dollar range. I saw one in the classifieds for close to 3 not sure what all it came with.

    Another vote for the Moab, Martin bows have always been a great value for the money. Their business philosophy may be different, but their engineering is excellent.

    Or, you can shop for a used bow. You can get a real nice bow for that kind of money, used one year.

    Thumbs up all good adviseposted here.

    AT is a great place to find deals! I gotten my last five bows from AT members.

    If your looking for a new bow I would look long and hard at Martin bows! I have a Cheeta and man its a really nice bow! I paid 349.00 for it at Cabelas!

    Pse has some realy sweet bows in your range also. I feel there are alot of nice bows and suggest you get your hands on some shoot as many as you can.

    I have a Mathews bow listed here on AT for a heck of a deal. shoot me a PM if it will suit your needs.

    You could get a used Bowtech for $400.00. Look around here in ArcheryTalk Classifieds. You will find one, if not a Bowtech, then maybe a Martin,Hoyt, Mathews, PSE, or whatever you wanna buy. Check it out.
