View Full Version : Is this worth the money
02-15-2002, 09:17 PM
I might have the opporunity to buy a XI Legend Force One compound bow. The seller says its brand new and never fired. Has a 60-70 pound draw @ 30".
From the picture it is a single cam. No accessories bow only--currently @ $100.00--Its on Ebay. I have been told that I need a 29-30" draw for my size.
I have never owned a bow before and I am looking for advice on purchasing one.
Thanks for any adivce.

Not telling you to buy this particular bow or not,but if you are looking to challenge yourself as a hunter,yes a bow is worth buying and trying out,just beware that you will be hooked and it will cost you $ for all the little extras that you wont be able to walk past,it is an addictive sport.
Also dont expect success right away,although it happens for some,most spend many hours and seasons just learning how to get deer within that 30yrd range,it is a close up and personal type of hunting.

For a $100 it sounds like an alright deal to me. Be prepared to sink another $200 into it getting it ready for the field. Like Passthru said, it is an addicting sport and you will need the little extras on it before shooting. Any bow will kill a deer. It takes time and going through the "School of Hard Knocks" before you get that one shot at one for the first time. You will love it though.

Well I ended up buying the bow, got it for $112
Came Fed Ex today and looks great, no scratches or marks definately looks new.
I found a site that says this bows normally retails for $259, looks like I got a deal.
Now I have to set it up, anyone know some good sites to pickup gear at--looking for relases, sights, arrows-- the whole nine yards
Thamks in advance for the help

you will need to go down to your local archery shop and get your bow set up (draw length , draw weight,etc,). You will then need to match these things up with the proper arrow selection. Hope this helps.

These guys hit it right on. Go down to the shop and buy what you need there and they should set it up and tune it for you for free.
