What You Should Know About Buying a Used Compound Bow

in Compound

Whether it's your first or your fifth compound bow, make sure you do sufficient research before you buy so that you get the perfect bow. Too many people base their decisions on compound bows from things that don't matter. For example, many are set on one brand and although it's good to be loyal, bow manufacturers are constantly coming out with new models that have features that you might like. In order to really experience what each manufacturer has to offer, compare between brands and give them an honest chance.

Something that you need to watch for is advertising that's not exactly honest. For example, many makers of compound bows will provide statistics about things such as how many feet per second that their bows will shoot, but their claims might not actually be true. It's not that they lie flat out, but that the bow can shoot that fast give the perfect environment, which you will likely never really have while out hunting. Don't fall for the hype and the marketing and don't think that you need the fastest bow out there, unless you're trying to take down a huge animal from a far distance.

Reviews are a great way to learn about the various brands and models that are available and if there's an archery club in your area, seek out opinions on compound bows. They can normally give you first hand stories of why you should buy one brand over another.

A good quality bow can be quite expensive and it's just the way it is. If a bow maker says that it's as good as the next, but their price is much lower, don't get your hopes up. You have to pay for a good bow, but you don't have to spend a fortune to get a bow that will work. A moderately priced bow will usually do just fine for almost any hunter.
