I'm looking to get my first bow and have not read anything good about the Browning. I love the look of the Browning Illusion. Mossyoakbreak up with a wooden handle. Don't want to spend more than $450. Trying to sell a few things first. Are there any bows that look like the Browning Illusion?

Before buying anything, I would suggest you go to your local shop. Try a few out. First how much do you want to spend on complete hunting rig, ready for the woods. Second, does it matter new or used?? A new 2010 Darton bow completely set up is less than that $450.00 Some of the Parkers I have new is completely set up for a lot less than that, and that is just two out of many out there.

worth it.

The Browning Illulsion is a Great Bow, very underrated.

Go give it a try.

not sure where you have been hearing about brownings but they are a great shooting lineup and a very solid foundation. the only negative is I doubt that they will be carried by PSE much longer. even if they are dropped by PSE they will still carry a lifetime warranty that PSE offers on the bows.

shooting as many bows as possible is the best way to figure out what will be the best bow for you.

feel free to pm me if you need any help,

The 2005 - 2007 Illusions are some of the best used bows out there. Not speed demons by today's standards but very sweet shooting bows. I love me 2005 Illusion. Shooting that bow is soothing.

Get the Illusion. I gave mine to my Bro-in-Law and wished i hadn't. I loved the feel of that bow and the wooden grip on it. Shot it everyday. He just pulls it out right before deer season. It just kills me...

I don't have an Illusion, but I love my little Browning. It's not going anywhere for awhile.

I used the Browning Illusion extensivley for three years and it still remains one of my favorite bows! Very nice shooting bow! I killed plenty of critters with em! You wouldn't be disapointed!

They are great bows, I shot the 05 I had for a good while before getting the 2010 that I now have for sale in the classifieds. I'd be happy to work out a great deal on it for you ;)

Just bought a new bow and the only reason I did not get the Browning Illusion is because I already have one. I will not get rid of it either. It has the best feel to me of any bow I have ever shot.
