Well, finances aren't working out like they were supposed to and I won't be able to get my Z7. What good bows are there out there in the $500 range that shoot well and are dependable....?
i got a 09 bengal package for like 400 buck best money i've spent lately.dam good bow and for the money you can't go wrong.very nice draw very little hand shock with nothing on the bow and accurate.are the new Martins worth a crap? The Bengal looks decent, atleast in print
+1 to the smoke, I have the heat and the smoke has 1/2" more B.H. (at 7 1/8), and it still shoots 324fps IBO. They are slick/nice looking units.If your wanting new, I would check out the Quest Smoke.. Otherwise you could look at a used Elite that still maintain there warranty.
Yea, I agree. The mid-range Martins are certainly worth checking out... especially if the OP is looking for a RTS package for ~$500. For that matter, I'd also take a look at the Bear Assault or maybe even poke around for a leftover Bear Truth II.The Martin line may be the best mid price lineup, you should check them out.
