The 30# PSE Buckeye is a very fine starter bow, it's what I learned to
shoot on once I got tired of having a different loaner-bow each week.
Got it at a Galyan's for $99 new 3 yrs ago. Seeing as how it is so
common, you could probably buy one fairly cheap from someone who is
looking to trade up. An added bonus of the Buckeye is that it is a
take-down bow, you can disassemble it for compact packing.
