I drink your milkshake!
Anyone have any advice on how good these are and if they would make a good starter / first compound?
They look like the old Bear twin cam compound bows. The older Bears weren't as efficient and fast as most of the newer designs. I don't have any experience with those bows personally, but at least one of them is listed as a higher than 300fps rating and with a 70% let-off...if their facts are correct, could be nice bows.
