I just got my latest Petersen's Bowhunting mag and it has an article on "Great Budget Bows" - I know it's been awhile since I seriously shopped around for bows so I guess my perception of budget doesn't match today's market. Mathews budget bow, the S2, lists at $759 MSRP and several more are $700 + \:o

If I were to buy one I would look at Parker and maybe a couple more.

Martin is has some great budget bows. Hate to say it but they are far and few between now a days. Bear has a few 400 to 500 bows. Mathews makes the mission series which is a good bow from what I understand. 300 to 400 dollars. You can always go to archery talk and buy a slightly used bow from last year for 1/2 what it cost new. Hope this helps!!

Ditto!

Anything over 300 bucks is NOT a budget bow in my opinion!!!

Check out the Mission line of bows by Mathews, they're a lot of bow for the money. You'd be surprised how well these bows shoot.

Mission X3 - MSRP $379
Mission X4 - MSRP $449
Mission X5 - MSRP $559
Mission Journey - MSRP $599
Mission Buckmasters - MSRP $699

What about the Diamond The Rock for $399? IBO speed up to 318 f.p.s. and a 7" brace height.

The Fred Bear lineup has several decent bows that won't break the bank . Used high end bows are another option , if you know your draw length and can setup a bow . Many good bows can be found for $400-$500 that are only a couple of years old .

I just picked up a year old Hoyt Vectrix xl for $400. There are deals like this all over the place.
