Dead-on answer! As stik said, bows are like tennis shoes—everyone has their own favorite brand for a whole host of reasons, but you should shoot as many different ones and find the one that is the best for you. It also will help you more than you know if you could get hooked up with someone that is familiar with the basics of archery so you'll at least know what to look for and what to feel for. If you have any further questions feel free to ask, and welcome to the site and the world of archery.

You may start by looking at used Diamond Bows. They are a good bow but do not seem to hold their value as well as a Mathews or other premium brands. Thus, you still get a great bow but can generally get it without breaking the bank, at least that's my experience with them. I started a few years back with a Diamond bow and spent a year or so practicing before I was confident enough to enter the woods with it. I then shot a firends Mathews Reezen and really felt a diffeence. After shooting a couple of different bows, I have settled on a Mathews Z7 magnum but that would have been too big of an investment for my first bow and not really knowing if I was going to enjoy bow hunting as much as I do.

Unless it has sold, there is/was a very nice Hoyt Maxxis 35 in the classifieds here. Otherwise the best advice has already been given...go shoot as many as you can and let the bow pick you. Don't get caught up in sales gimmicks and cult like followings of fanboys and their koolaid. :-) Find what feels best to you regardless of what sticker brand it has on it. Me personally...I've taken a strong liking to Elite bows.

Besides the answer of "shoot what feels the best"...which I agree with. Go to Archery talk and you can find a deal if it comes down to financials.
