Go to a archery shop and shoot different manufactures and models, pick the one that's comfortable to YOU. I shoot Martin a friend of mine shoots Hoyt he doesn't like the feel of mine and i don't like the feel of his so pick what fits you.

Solid advice above.

I shot 5 brands before going with my last bow. Wish I had shot 10 to be honest.

Try a lot of different bows. Don’t be afraid to have the pull weight changed, some shoot different at different poundages. I think the best bang for the buck has been the Bowtech Carbon Icon. I think it has become the Zion now.

Shoot as many as you can. Then think about it and do it again. Then jump down the rabbit hole and join the addiction.

Like stated go to your local archery shop and shoot the bows. You'll know which one after you shoot it.

Everyone has already said it but be open minded and shoot them all. The last bow I purchased I went to the bow shop and I had it narrowed down to two different bows. The guy at the shop said based on my size and the way I shot, I should try a couple of different ones. Long story short I walked out of that bow shop with a bow I had never really considered and I have never regretted my choice.
