    Ha ha…this cracked me up. I've always wondered why they told me to use that ten bucks to buy clown face paint and a bright red wig.

    Packmule is right on. I shoot a Matthews from that era and it is still a sweet bow.

    Do yourself a favor a buy a newer bow. Bows depreciate more than anything I know of so you can get a decent starter rig for a pretty reasonable price. An older pse or mathews would serve you well. IMO, I'd look for something that has at least 65% letoff. Investigate limbs for cracks, cams for lean, etc. and whatever you do, don't buy it without shooting it first. I have an older High
    Countrry bow from 1991 that I used up until a few years when I purchased a mathews Z7. I converted the old bow to a bow fishing rig. I killed plenty of deer with it and a few turkeys up until I bought the new bow.
