Personally, in terms of Axle to Axle Length, I would say just about anything over 32" that is in your price range.  Again, that is why last night I was talking up and showing you the Fred Bear Code and Diamond Liberty Compound Bow.  Then, on the way home I remembered the Reflex Highlander.  Any of them would be a good choice for you.  If it were me making the purchase, I would get the Liberty.

By the way, check your email.  I sent you a copy of the bow review, in PDF Format, from Field & Stream, I mentioned earlier.

I'm sure the liberty is the cat's meow, but that's a little more that I would like to spend. :shock:  $600 plus all the other stuff I'd need is a little too much.  I liked the price of the Highlander kit, but like sticker said it might be better to buy the bow and then buy all the other stuff after...probably be cheaper too.

I don't want to spend a lot, but I also don't want an obsolete piece of crap that I'm either gona hate or need to buy a new one in a few years.  I liked the Highlander until you said that by todays standards it's a little obsolete.  I'd rather spend a little more money now and have a bow for a while, then spend a little now then have to spend more in a few years because my bow is crap already....

There is nothing wrong with the Reflex Highlander and I never said it was obsolete.  It is just a little behind the times, that is all.  There would be no need to replace it after a year or three, unless you really wanted to.

Okay, since you couldn't open the PDF file I sent you, I will attach it here.  I looked through Field & Stream and no where did I find any piracy clauses or that reproducing the artical was illegal.  Full credit for the attachment artical should be given to Field & Stream Magazine.

Sorry I guess you didn't say obsolete, just behind the times.... :-[

I guess I'm back to where I was this morning, go shoot some and see how I like them.... O0

This is the point where I must interject. Just because a bow is obsolete by todays standards does not make it any less efficient than any bow today or tommorrow. My compound bow is older than several members on this site (and almost as old as I am) and the only way I'll "upgrade" is if it breaks on me outright. Regardless of which bow you choose, it has to feel good to you. Once you find that one that just fits, you develop that same bond to your bow as you would to any of your favorite firearms. When you DO get that bow that feels right in your hands, buy it. Then, practice, practice, practice... Bows are like guns, more often than not, they are more accurate than you are.

And by the way, I would recommend checking out gunbroker.com for some bows as well. For instance, this auction (http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=52545344) has some serious compounds for sale.

Thanks for the info KS... O0

This is so much tougher than preparing for rifle hunting....go buy a rifle...they are all the same basic technology, it just all depends on how much lead you want to throw and how fast you want it to go.  No ATA length, pull, let off, rest, quiver...... :D  You want more bullets, put some in your pocket.  O0
