Default Whats the most important thing to you when buying a bow?

I would say mine is the draw cycle and no recoil.

I would have to say overall comfort, balance, smooth draw, no recoil and quiet.

First i look for a hoyt sticker.

then i check out its grip (love the vectrixes grip)

then i shoot it and listen for noise.

Draw cycle hand shock and speed are all plusses.

Has to feel good in hand and have a smooth draw. Min of 7” brace, 7 ½ would be better and I also like 37-38 ATA (not easy to find with parallel limbs). Accurate, forgiving and Quiet.
I don’t mind a little recoil; actually I like it to have a little feel to it. That way you can have a little feed back from your bow.
