As someone new to the hobby I didn't really know what I was getting into looking for a bow. However the sas siege compound bow turned out to be everything I was looking for. I'm in my mid 20's and this bow feels great, snappy, accurate, healthy weight (50 lbs.), and lots of drilled holes to add after market parts. Everything your looking for in a starter bow for the hobby. The siege will forever be my first bow. I've already got a couple friends interested with me!! Don't pass up the sas siege compound bow!
