First time Bow buyer, need advice?

Kyle asked:

Okay so I'm looking to get a first bow, and was wondering - can someone help me with the advantages of a compound, and a recurve? Also, could you suggest a bow that is under $400, preferably with a 45# draw?
Oh, and some tips of what to look for when getting a bow are nice, too.

    Recurve or compound, well a recurve has less parts to worry about. A compound is easier to hold at full draw. other then that there about the same and recurves tend to be lower in cost. I have both and shoot my recurve the most. I recommend you go to a reputable archery shop get fitted for a bow, you need to now your draw length. Then try out several different brands and types get a lesson or two and then you will be able to choose the best bow for you. I recommend the PSE Mustang recurve bow and the Martin Cheetah

    My Martin Saber was just under $400 with all their accessories, draw weight is 45 to 60 pounds. A compound maybe easier to learn and having sights to help is great, but when you compete against someone that can out shoot you with a recurve you start thinking about buying a high quality recurve and make it more challenging for yourself.

    Martin produces a very quality bow that will stand up to PSE and all of the other brands that will be named here. Go ahead and thumbs down this, Martin is a great compound bow.
