    I bought an Agulla when I needed my own first bow and it is fine. Paint finish chips easily.
    If you have not finished the beginners course I would advise waiting to buy anything until the club coaches advise you - use the club kit until then. Things change rapidly at first and you don't want to end up with unsuitable kit.
    I would also suggest trying different risers in your hand as you may not like the feel.

    I have been shooting a samick aguilla know for twelve months, and find it to be a perfect bow for the beginner,as trunkles says it does tend to chip easy. I bought mine 7 months on from the beginners course, it is my second bow.
    If you have not finished the beginners course you would be advised to wait until you have, then you will have a better idea on what you require.

    I shot an agulla as my first 'proper' bow - still have it and struggle with the concept of getting rid of it! It quite happily took me to first class, and I'm quite sure would have taken me further if I hadn't decided I needed something 'shinier' - certainly a good intermediate.

    This time I'm going to get it right .... or possibly not

    My Agulla got me to Bowman, no problems. Outshot a load of shinier bows in the process too.
    The paint chips easily though.

    This seems true of all samick risers, my masters chips easily too!

    My first bow is a Hoyt NeXus. Serving me well, lifetime warranty and such...

    Club mate got an Agulla, one of the screw bushing came off and he had to glue it back... And yes, paint chips so easily you wouldn't know how it happened

    I too have an Agulla, although I no longer use it. And yes, the paint finish looks wonderful when it's new but chips so easily that it soon looks tatty. It's about time Samick joined the 21st century and started anodising their risers!

    Hi

    I bought an Agulla at the back end of July. Quite happy with it, no paint chips (apart from where the limbs fit). A good beginners/intermediate riser for the money.

    Cheers

    2 pints of lager, please. And a 6-gold end.

    Go for the Ultra, it's one of the best bows ever made. It has probably won more major tournaments and set more world records in the modern era than any other bow period.

    Hmm....interesting to see those statistics.
    Anyway, as the original question was about the Matrix, it might be worth noting that an Ultra could set you back an extra 50% ish...

    This time I'm going to get it right .... or possibly not

    It is the only 1400 riser.

    Bearing in mind that Malcofsale said in his post that he 'is new to archery and looking to buy his first bow', I think the 1400 bit might be slightly academic?

    Well he can spend 100 today and 300 later. or just 300 today. My point was that the Ultra is capable of shooting to any level, I see why people buy cheap limbs but not cheap risers as it's a false economy in the long run.
