    Question What to go for?...

    I'm looking to buy my first Compound bow after having shot with borrowed gear (Hoyt Sapphire) for the last 5 months.

    Unfortunately the budget is limited so I've been considering the Hoyt Powertec & Lazertec and also the Diamond Rapture.

    Does anyone have any experience of these bows? Can you recommend any of the above or should I keep my eye on e-bay for something better to come up second hand?

    What's your budget, and do you need to factor in kit such as release aid, arrows, sight, scope, etc?

    The budget's around 450 for bow, rest, sight & scope - could stretch to 500 but that would cut into what I'm planning to spend on decent arrows.

    You could see what the shops have second hand.

    Jerry Tee - You could see what the shops have second hand.

    I've e-mailed most of the on-line suppliers and those that have replied that do have any used equipment to my spec are too rich for me - 400/450 notes for a used Hoyt or Bowtech leaves nothing for all the rest of the gear.
