I don't want to sound negative, but I had a quest ( I don't remember which one) for only a month.

I had it long enough to put on a new string ( I don't EVER shoot factory strings)rigged it out and just didn't meet my standards.

That's not a bad deal depending on how much that bow has been used, that is an awesome bow.

Not in any order, but here is what comes to mind:

1. Used Bow (Mathews, Bowtech,Mission, PSE etc)
2. Mission Endeavor
3. Mission Craze
4. Bowtech Assassin
5. Diamond Outlaw
6. PSE Brute
7. PSE Stinger

Now I've shot bows 2,4,5,and 6. You should go shoot them and see which one you like, as each had a different feel to them.

Heck, I would hit a pro shop and shoot several. Personally, I don't buy used as you never know what the other person did with the bow. I don't mind selling my bows I've shot, but I, in the past, have them checked out before shipping them off by the pro shop so that if the receiver says there is a problem, well, you get my drift.

Need a smaller ATA bow to me being short lol. Can you recommend any shops? I dont know of any. If theres one near Richardson or something i can stop by there after work and test some out maybe.

Check out ebay for a Diamond Iceman or Black Ice. Cabela's also has the new Diamond Outlaws for $499 ready to shoot. I shot one the other day and loved it.

My wife shoots a DXT. I have tried numerous times to get her a new Hoyt but she wont budge. She loves that bow. Before I bought my Maxxis 31 I looked for a used DXT. Thwy are great bows. I would rather have a used DXT than a new low grade bow.
