Archery question

Whats everyone got for a compound bow? I've been out of it for years. As it sits my bow needs to be restrung and a new peepsight installed. I've had it since 93 and after looking at what's out there im lost. I know the newer ones are alot lighter than my Browning Bridger but I don't even know where to start. I like the PSE brand but some of there stuff is up there in price so what are you guys using and what would you recomend?

Are you close to Forest Park? There is a great archery store there on Madison.

Im out in romeoville. I originally bought my bow at http://www.glissonarchery.com/. I have not yet gone back there. I have looked at Bass pro, Cabellas, Gander. I am just trying to see what people prefer before I seriously look into upgrading and getting back into the sport.

I went to Sportsman's Edge in Braidwood. I shot a bunch of bows, but w/ a limited budget, they recommended the Mission (made by Mathews). It's very quiet out of the box and relatively cheap.

I'd recommend shooting a bunch to see what you like.
