Best Cheap Compound Bows
The best cheap compound bows are bows that are modern. They are bows that also use a levering system to bend the limbs of said bow; the levering system on these types of bows is usually fashioned out of either pulleys or cables. Just to contrast, unlike other bows like longbows or recurve bows, the limbs on compound bows are much, much more stiff.
- Crosman Elkhorn Jr. Compound Bow Air Pistol. Just like Dad's old bow, the Crosman Elkhorn Jr. Compound Bow Air Pistol features reliable and heavy-weight limbs and a composite, center shot riser that comes with a big sight window. The next time you are out hunting or just trying to put in a few hours of target practice for your personal improvement, look to this particular compound bow because of its cable guard that ensures superior shooting results.
- Barnett Banshee Intermediate Compound Bow Set with Ambidextrous Handle. Ideal for the beginner, this compound bow is priced very cheaply and features a reinforced handle, a soft-touch grip, and a relatively light weight of only 3.5 pounds. This bow set is great for beginners because it includes everything you need to start shooting right away: a target, arrows, finger tabs, and even an arm guard for safety.
- Genesis Pro LH Compound Bow. Coming in last in this best-of list, the Genesis Pro LH Compound Bow is the best one feature-wise, but it is the most expensive one on this list, so it may be cost-prohibitive. However, if you want to spend a few times more than the price of the compound bows above, you will get a compound bow that adjusts to your size, an adjustable draw-strap, and an aluminum riser. This one is great for beginners, too, but it's simply a higher scale model.
