Does it ever amaze anyone how often people will get a new bow? I don't know how they afford it. The new bowtech I ordered is the first new bow I've gotten since I started bowhunting....10 years ago.

They afford it by finding someone to sell them the new bow for really cheap, and then find someone to buy it from them the next year for almost what they paid for to begin with.

I'll use the guys that work at Ford as an equal example (but obviously on a larger scale).

Hmmm..I guess it's that "latest and greatest" syndrome.

Yeah, I think some see it as a status thing, but others may see it as a way to have equipment that never wears out.

I'm now on my third compound bow. Every 10 or so years I get a new one whether or not I need one. I bought a Reflex last summer. So far so good. I don't like all the fancy stuff. Just a good basic bow that can withstand me dropping it now and then. I have a bad habit of doing that. That is why my camcorder doesn't work...dropped it 20 feet from my tree stand. It didn't fair to well. Not to change the subject but.......Parker????.....Don't tell me that is susposed to be you in your avatar. You ain't got the moves man!

Mailman, I guess the debate is still on whether it is a dude with a hat on backwards or a chick with a pony tail......no, no, its not supposed to be me exactly either way though.....I've got some better moves up my sleeve than that! :D There's a member on here that can attest to that, and I've learned quite a few new moves since they've seen me last.

The way I put it on the dance floor is 'I'm 320 pounds of feathers!'

I'm only on my second bow. I just bought a new one last season. The one I had before was okay, but wasn't fun to shoot for very long.

i bought a 2005 model last year and this will be my first year to hunt with it, but before that my bow was a 96 model. I will say that I thought my bow was good until I bought a new one and now I relize my old bow wasnt nearly up to performance as my new one.

Well, now it's my turn to buy a new bow, or fairly new. I had my PSE 5000cm for I guess 13 years. It had been dropped out of a tree, twice, stepped on by kids and hard tellin' what else. I've been saying I'm getting a new one for the last 3 years but now I have to since I sold mine last week. I sold the whole set-up. Now I've just got to get out there and compare, I don't know which to go with. My buddy just ordered the switchback from mike's in st. peters. It looks like an awesome bow, but for 7 bills it better be. It's just hard to spend that on a bow, but if you keep it for 10-15 years I guess it's not that bad.

Maybe someday you'll be able to afford a good bow and won't have to use a cheap one:rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:
