I would find either a quality used carbon fiber bow or one that is on sale for $100... islands are humid places and wood bows go soft quickly...

I think a compound bow would be very helpful to shoot down coconuts. Careful, though, coconuts can be vicious if wounded.

Carbon fiber bow sounds good to me.
Supposedly Shar Music will ship you bows to try out, you pick one, buy it and send the rest back.
They supposedly also have house-brand economy carbon fiber bows that are pretty good and pretty cheap.

you each are awarded all three prizes
carbon fiber seems to be the general consensus
( which pretty much coincides what i was thinking.)
