Best Mid-Priced bows....?
In your opinion and based on either experience or research, what do you all think are the very best mid-priced bows out there? I'd say between $400 & $600.
Which of them are the smoothest, most quiet, forgiving, and accurate (all in one bow)?
I appreciate your input!

You can find many Elite Bows on this archery site for in the $400-#600 range. They are awesome bows and worth every single penny that you will pay IMO.

Diamond Rock is a great bow for $400. There are several others too. Darton AS50 is another. PSE has some. A lot of them to choose from.

The Hoyt Power Hawk and the Super Hawk are pretty good bows in that price range, imo.

A used Elite would be a great way to go. Also, you could easily find a Bear Truth 2 or Done Deal or Lights Out in that range brand new, very nice bows for the money. I have and Elite GT500 and a Bear Done Deal so I speak from experience.

ebay. I just bought a NIB Ross Cardiac for $375.
I never make the same mistake twice, I do it 5 or 6 times to be really sure.

Contact gklr here on AT. Hes selling the Parker Blackhawk XP for a very reasonable price in your range. For the price he is wanting for it new, It will be very hard to beat.

If you can find a bow better than the Martin Moab (~$400 or so), I'll eat the greaser.

Martin is going to be really hard to beat in that price range, great bows for the money. And I can assure you you will not find better customer service than what Martin will provide you....'94

You can get Martin's "Pro Series" bows in your price range. Maybe not at every shop but they can be found. If your draw length is 27" or more check out Martin's '09 WartHog it should be a great all around bow. However, I don't know the price. If you want a shorter bow look at Martin's '08 Firecat, MOAB and Bengal. If you want a real short bow and/or have a hsort draw length check out the '09 FireHawk.
Whatever brand you choose now would be a great time to get a deal on a new in the box '08 bow.

Mission Journey is my favorite. Reflex also makes some really nice bows. The Growler is great.
