Here is what I suggest, look over the attached pdf file and see if any of the bows jump out at you having the specs you want/need. Go to the archery shop and try to shoot as many different bows in your predefined price range. One of the bows will feel right and that is the bow to go with. If you've already done this great. One thing to consider is not getting caught up in the speed game. Yeah speed is nice but if my choice was between a bow that shot 350fps with a 6.5" brace or a 300fps with a 7.5" I'd take the second one everytime.

As for the particular bow you mentioned I haven't shot it before but I will be looking into a new bow for next season. I read several reviews on the bow you mentioned and everyone seams to be happy with the bow. I can't et over an 8.125" brace height with a 32" axel to axel and still having an IBO of 300+fps!
