Thinking about a new bow
I have been mulling th idea of getting a new bow. I cant bring myself to pay 900 bucks for a 2011 model. Makes me sick to think about it. I am open to any brand at this point but have been thinking about a used Bowtech general or admiral. Or maybe even an Elite. I love my Tribute but just want to try soomething new.
If you were going to buy a used bow out of the classifieds, what would it be?That course was so easy I even missed a target !!

good luck on your search!
I would have to go shoot a few bows before I knew what to look for in the classifieds

Yeah, bows are such a personal preference item the best thing you can do is shoot as many as you are interested in. You might consider looking at used bows in your area, back when I was shooting an 01 vintage Cougar I went to the guy's house (who had it for sale) and tried it out before I bought it. It just felt good, took my first archery deer with that one.

Here's what I think !
First off , price should not dictate what kind of bow you buy , banks have plenty of money if you are a little short on funds and besides money not worth anything until you spend it !
Just be like me and never put all your bowcases together , as wifes can count , something I've already learned , so half of them are in the garage and I try to rotate them some !
PS. My bows are so old that I get contacted everytime there's a new western movie being made !

If I was going to get another compound (which I aint ) it would be the PSE Vendetta XL...
or Maybe a Hoyt Alphamax

A tribute or commander.
You might gain 5-10 FPS with a new one but it might not be ALL THAT.
I did shoot the Vendetta XL but I don't think you'll find one cheap used yet.That's a nice shooting bow.

Even though I have 2 missions and a mathews, I've been thinking of either a PSE Stinger or the Brute. I've always had a soft spot for PSE. I wished that PSE had brought out the single-cam Nova a little earlier, I would have gotten it. My son has my '98 model nova I've killed a multitude of deer with.I like my trophies on my wall and in my belly

used bows are the way to go and maybe if more people buy used bows then these ridiciolus prices would drop a little.truball shooting staff
