unless your some big dude, 70# is a bit high for a beginner, you probably can have it tuned down some though.
Spend your fifty$ gift card for later , don't be afraid to say something to the manager at BPS about your experience there.

Take it from a guy who has been bow hunting for 30 years, this is the best bow out there bar none!

Best Bow

Best Bow 2

Hoped this helped. By the way, if you decide to acquire this bow, let me know and I'll come over to help you set it up, free of charge.

if you really want to shoot alot of difference brands go to GAT guns. They sell just about everything...Hoyt, PSE, Mathews, even the new limbsaver bows. The guys there know what they are talking about. I'd feel better sending you there than to BPS, Cabelas or Gander.

They are quite a ride for you. I agree they have a great selection, and know what they are doing, however, I have found them to be very over priced on most everything they sell!

They are on Rt. 25 in Dundee, Il.

They do have a web site.

One line of bows not mentioned much here is the Bow Techs by Diamond. My hunting partner just upgraded to the Marquis (sp?) this year, it is sweet!

As suggested, shoot as many as you can, something will feel right to you!

Best bet is to go to a local archery shop. They are there to serve you. I've had really good service from Midwest Cimarron in Richmond.

I ended up going w/ the Fred Bear Lights Out. It was in my price range and seems to shoot very nicely.
Thanks for all your help guys!! It is amazing how different bows feel when you actually shoot them...I took your advice and shot as many as I could! Thanks again!!
