There are some decent recurves for under 200, or close to 200. Check www.sullysbowfishing.com and look at the bows. PSE made a nice bowfishing set with a compound, retriever reel and arrows for around 200 I think. Weezer would know its name as he sold me one a few years ago.

It's better to spend the money up front becuase you will just want to upgrade your set up later. The fish Hawk is a perfect bow for bowfishing, it's adjustable from 30-40lbs, has no let off and is durable. It's best to go on-line to Sully's bowfishing and check out all the different bows they offer. The choices are vast and it will all come down to personal preference. Almost every bow manufacturer out there is now making a product geared towards bowfishing. Good luck to you and if you have any questions on the different bows just ask, with our group someone either owns one or has owned one.

actually i was just doing alot of looking around and i changed my mind i thinking about getting the browning barracuda it has more fps than the ams fish hawk and the name is a little cooler. i already have the ams reel and 2 bowfishing arrows so im thinking ill just order the bow only.

I have a Browning Barracuda and I don't care for it. It is nice and light but is too short a bow to shoot comfortably with fingers, the Fish Hawk is longer than the Barracuda and is a better choice between the two.

My opinion of course.

Yes, depending on the rest you will need 2 of the thick AMS spacers between the bow and the old style AMS reel. If you are using the new style AMS reel I don't know. Get an assortment of the thin and thick spacers.
