I live about 10 minutes away from the Bowtech factory and I stopped into their pro shop today since I am also beginning the dive into archery. They have a nice little 20 yard indoor range there and the customer service is top notch. I shot a Diamond Black Ice (EXCELLENT bow, but a little higher up the $$$ ladder than I want to start with), then I shot a Diamond Justice and was very impressed. A guy I work with told me to check Sportsman's Warehouse because Bowtech is making a bow with the SW name on it, it comes as a kit, and I think the price is only like $459. I asked the techs at Bowtech about it today and they said it's a Patriot 2 clone. They continued on to say it's a great bow for a beginner, but one that wouldn't quickly be outgrown. I'll probably own one by the end of next week so hopefully I can let you know more about it later on.
