Front and center is fit. The bow just has to fit and that is probably the most expensive part of this sport. Once you have been fitted with the proper bow draw length (arrow length, peeps and sights) and a few tips from the trade (tools!), you should be on your own. Best thing is to be fitted by a pro and he gets paid by your patronage. So in other words, go to a bow specific pro shop, let them properly fit you and buy your equipment from them the first time. That does not come cheap, cost on a package can be as high as 30% more than mailorder/do-it-yourself. Cost should be roughly $500 to $700 for a start up. Fun sport and well worth the investment.
