Re: Wow, new bows are amazing!

BH57, I am 1000% with you, currently I own a safe full of high pwr rifles and not a one cost me more than $650, which BTW wont even get me with in sight of the vast majority of todays proshop bows. My stainless M700 BDL in 338wm cost out the door $647.

I have killed 26 deer with a bow to date, so one does not need a bow costing $800-$1000+ to put meat in the freezer and horns on the wall. The last new bow I bought was around 15yrs ago +/-. It was a last years discontinued PSE XLR 900 that cost (IIRC) $579 new. I paid ZERO BS, $120 at the IL D&TC.

I am presently lokking to buy a used Bowtech Constitution but I wont go over $350. I strongly doubt I will ever spend much over $400 for ANY bow. A $800 bow DOES NOT a great shooter make.

Everyone is entitaled to spend their $$$ any way they wish. I personaly can not justify the prices of todays bows, because in the end all equipment regardless of cost can do is help make a good archer a little better, it can not make a poor archer or a archer lacking in skill earned the hard way better.

Re: Wow, new bows are amazing!

I have got cought in the new bow every year sickness but not anymore. I have two 09 Elite Z28's , one primary and one back-up bow and they will be my hunting bows for awhile. I have gone out and shot some of the new bows but they ain't changed that much for me to invest anymore $ in bows.

Now if I could just cure the rifle buying sickness that I have cought in the last year i would be good.
