Try as many as u can, i wish i would of before i bought mine, im not knocking mine, i just wish i did a little more hw on em before i bought one. I have a pse dakota and its fine for me, it really is, i love it. It was only like 300 and when i am consistent with practice it stacks the arrows. Although the right bow is important to find like previous posters have said, if you get the bow with just the string than your gonna have to pay a couple hundred more to get everything else you might want, arrows, obviously lol, whisker biscuit or drop rest, additional silencers, stabilizer, release, arm guard, pracitce tips, maybe additional arrows used just for practice, sights, and broadheads. All those things arent mandatory but they do help with accuracy and reliability. I recomend just about all those things. It sounds like a lot and it is. I just don't want you think think its gonna be like a $200 dollar investment and your set, you wont be lol! just trying to give ya a heads up
hope my post helped.
