    Going javelina hunting in February, pull out my bow and the string snapped. Called a few places and the cost to fix the bow is about what I paid for it 12yrs ago. Took out my crossbow sinceiI have a permit for that too and the serving on it is shredded and dried out (haven't used it in 10+ years. String on it is sold out and on back order across the US.

    Looks like I'm going bow shopping

    I'm personally shooting the PSE Bow Madness XP with the "Skullworks" camo pattern. Not many people like that pattern, but I personally love it. Can't go wrong with a PSE. Buying a new bow is always fun, but they sure come with a hefty price tag.

    I just cant see spending $150 for a new string and then an extra 25-50 for a factory tune up. The PSE I bought was $300 new back in the day.

    Prime or Martin are my vote but I am bias. Love both of my bows.

    Well went out looking and came back with a redhead kronic bo. Read allot of reviews and for the price range I was looking this one fit the bill. Shoots real smooth needs a couple things but all in all a decent buy, specially at $200 off the price tag with a few gift cards I had from Christmas.

    I was on a budget. Read all the reviews online for it and everyone had nothing but good things to say about it. It feels real good though and weighs a nice 3.5lbs with an 80% let off . Compared to my old one that was around 8lbs-10lbs with a 50% let off its like a night and day difference.

    Nice! What draw weight you go with? What are you slinging for arrows/BH combo?
