Well, I'm 6'3" 200lbs and I just bought the Martin firecat for $450, recycled my whisker biscut, trophy line sight, new PSE pro carbon arrows $80 raw shaft at 30". It's shooting almost as fast as my son's PSE X-force for $795. I really like it. My recommendation is that whatever brand you buy go to a pro shop and hold and shoot the bow before buying. If they won't let you shoot it, it's not a pro shop. Good Luck.
