I would go into a proshop and have someone take a look at the bow that you have for inspection. Do some comparison with some new bows. And shoot the new bows against the bow you have.........make sure the bow you were given is really going to fit you in terms of draw length and draw weight and is comfortable in terms of weight, balance, grip, draw cycle, etc. Note how quiet each bow is, how it feels as you hold it, holding weight, vibration as you shoot it, how it holds at full draw, the length of the valley. You need to be able to know the differences to judge your decision. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to have the bow fit you in terms of draw length and shootability. Don't impulse buy and get the first bow that feels "better" than the bow you have currently. Shoot several models. I would be up front with whoever helps you at the proshop and tell them that you aren't certain you are going to get a new bow but that you are interested. You probably will get a sales pitch but still get some good information. Hands on subjective shooting is going to tell you more than anything else.
