    Default How old is your favorite bow?

    I have several, not a brag, mostly older models and including a couple recurves. My most frequently/favorite to use is now a 10 year old compound. At 52, I'm not sure there is a significant improvement to change to a newer bow just for a newer bow.

    2010 Martin Bengal is my favorite. Use to be 1994 Martin Saber but I wore out the bow.

    I have a few different bows from recurve, longbow, four compounds and I find it hard to pick one over the other because I truly just enjoy the majestic flight of the arrow leaving the bow to when it hits it's mark from all of them . But I'll pick my Reezen 6.5, not for it is anything special from the others only that it has won me more 3-D's and downed more game than any of the others.

    2008 MOAB with 2009 limbs at the moment. By next fall it may well be a 19070-72 Bear Grizzly, we'll see.

    I have a Black Widow that was shipped from the factory in Dec. 1968 and I don't think it has ever been shot!!! I also have a Martin Scepter II, Hoyt Super Slam, and my "current" Hoyt 38 Pro that I have had for around 8-10 years. If I were to get a new bow I would look at a Prime One or a Maitland target model.

    Favourite...that is the problem...The one I like to shoot the most is a Mathews Switchback from 2002 or 2003. The bow I shoot the best with is a Hoyt Vipertec...I like them both...had good kills with them both...keep wanting an Elite GT500...the Switchback is the short answer.

    I see it's tough to pick just one. I've enjoyed the company of many (bows).
