    I am currently trying to get archery gear, I have experience with a 25lbs recurve bow from a summer camp, but I was thinking about trying a 30lbs draw weight, anyone have any good options for a bow, and what arrows I should get? I'm constricted by a budget of ~$225, any suggestions?

    Hey guys, New to archery and am looking for a longer DL bow to fit me in a sub $800 budget. I have found a few Defiant 34 options out there that fit my budget, but can’t tell what DFX cam # they are. My draw length measures about 31” and only cam #3 hits that. I started searching to see if...

    I'm shooting a 62" Samick Sage recurve, 36 lb draw @ 8.5". I'm using by default a set of XX75 Genesis V2 1820 30", which seem to be really well made but I have no idea whether they're appropriate for my rig. I get a fair amount of fishtailing, but I'm new enough to not know whether it's a matter...

    Hello archers Thought it might be helpful to post about my experiences in researching and buying my first compound bow. I have been shooting barebow/recurve and longbow for about 3 years and learned to shoot under a level 5 NTS coach. After initially having zero interest in compound I caught...

    Hi All, I just bought a used Hoyt Pro Force 2019 Bow at a reasonable price and the guy selling the bow was very nice and he shared that the bow was one of the best he has shot so far but he is preparing to buy the new bow that is is coming up next year, so he had to sell this one. I am a new...

    Hello all! Just purchased my first compound. Been on the fence for a Powermax for a few weeks now, but I was walking through the Bass Pro Outlet Store in Springfield, Missouri...all bows (x-bows, compounds, trads) were an additional 25% off. I found a Diamond Deploy SB, 29”/70lbs RAK package...

    It feels like forever since I first started researching bows but I finally got one. I've done so much research into the bow that I have no idea where to start on accessories. The shop included a pack of arrows for any bow purchase so I saved $115. So give me what you got! I need to get a...

    Hello everyone. I am new to Archery, I bought a used PSE vision compound bow last year from a friend and figured I would put in for 1 archery hunt since I just started hunting 3 years ago in New Mexico and hadn't drawn yet. Well it looks like it worked to improve my odds because I drew Archery...

    I was curious if there would be a more beneficial first purchase between the two? Disregarding cost, what would be a better option for someone who is buying their first home target? Which specific style 3D or Block target would you recommend? Thanks for your time and help!

    Hi everyone, I'm looking into bowing a decent used bow to get some practice in & probably learn some likes and dislikes before upgrading. What I think I already know is: my reach is 74.3-ish inches which would mean I need a 29-30 draw length I'm 6'2" 180-185lbs and workout regularly so I think...

    Hello all, I am new to archery and to this page. I got a compound bow earlier this summer, a 2013 PSE Brute X. I have since changed a few things on it, new sight and just purchased a new stabilizer. I have it set to 28" draw and 52 pounds. I guess my main question is: Is this enough to...

    I've found three used bows, PSE nova, Bowtech Cabela's Credence, and Diamond Triumph. They range from 100-$150 that include enough to get me started. I'm new to archery. I hope to get good enough to bow hunt deer and maybe turkey. Ideally, the bow would last 7 years (that would get me through...
