Bow input- Bear Crux
 
Hey guys, looking at buying a new bow for the upcoming season. For the last 6 years I've used a Parker Hunter Mag. It's served me well but would like to upgrade. I've read reviews for quite a few and the Bear Crux has caught my attention. Anyone have any experience with this model?

Thanks for any input!

It's a good starter bow for the money, personally I'd save up a few hundred more and get a higher end model, something you'll be happy with for a lot longer.

:D jlgsgw has a good point...the Crux although a good bow for its money is not really an upgrade from what you have now, both bows...great bows for the dollar are rated as entry level bows...meaning good quality bows to see if its an interest you want to pursue without investing a big dollar...

Its obvious your interest is there, so as jlgsgw stated perhaps saving an extra few hundred and getting a higher end bow will serve you better...

Shop around ..shoot a few...the bow will pick you or you will know which one it is... Although I have access to high end bows my choice for hunting is the APA viper AIR...outstanding value at the $800.00 dollar mark...it wasn't the cost but the feel and the connection with the bow that sold me...for me one of the most accurate and versatile hunting bows I have ever shot...

I bought the Bear Arena 34 last year and I love it. But like They say said make sure you go shoot some different ones cause they are all really nice. Save the extra money up and get a bit higher end one you will be happy in the end.
