Any 2002 Cougar Elite, Cougar III, or Cougar IV, with Fury cams or Nitrous cams set for your draw lenght, that you can find used in the Archery Talk Forum Classified section. That is the best bow for the money I know of. That's what I shoot. My 2002 Cougar Elite with Bluemarble riser with Fury Cams, sold for $800.00 new in 2002. I bought it for $225.00 in 2004.

I just got home with a 2006 Saber for $289.00 new! What a bow. The deciding factor for me was weight. I wanted the Quest but they are being phased out and none were available. As suggested check Archer Talk for alot of options and info in general. Atleast you have some Archery exparience I have none.

Good Luck

what Robert said is some good advise. I was a die hard Mathews man untill I shot a cougar X. I sold both Mathew bows and bought a 2002 cougar fury x for 250 and a 2004 cougar x with nitrous cams for 225 and had money left over. they are easy to tune, accurate and forgiven bow. best change I ever made.

Check out this bow on ebay. It is just like mine, except mine has the wood grips.

You should look at the New Martin Bengal, very smooth draw great speed and pretty cheap, right around $400. brand new.
