Mea asked:


I started to practice archery last year and I really enjoy it. Now, since I've won two gold medals in my country, I'd like to buy myself a nice bow:)
Only bow I have been shooting by now is a plastic 30 lb Solaris, a complete beginners bow.
Now I'm looking into buying a Hoyt Eclipse riser.
Since I'm going to college this year, I'm on a very low budget.
I'd like to buy a lightweight bow, that I will not need to replace anytime soon. Also, I don't know what limbs would be the best to buy. I'm from Montenegro, so there are no Archery shops where I can try before I buy and I will order online.
My club orders from VBS Archery, from Netherlands, but I think the prices there are too high.
So riser/limbs suggestions, please, and where to buy those from:)

I'm buying my first bow!
I am really happy, but I'd like to know did I order good stuff:)
I have been shooting almost for a year, but all that with a terrible bow with plastic riser.
Now I'm getting:
Hoyt Eclipse riser
KAP T-Rex limbs (yes I know they're not very good, but they are the cheapest:)
Black Sheep stabilization (V-bar+ long and 2 short stabilizers)
Black Sheep button (even if I bought a better one, I wouldn't know how to use it:)
Cartel Championship Sight
KAP Adjustable Rest
and XX75 GAMEGETTER arrows for both indoor and outdoor use (I'm really on a budget here, so I'll have to use them indoor where they're great and outdoor where they'll perform I don't know how well)
And just some cheapest clicker and a string.
So was this all worth 400 euros? ($520)
