Used Bows Question
I have purchased two used bows over the years (last 10 really, but my first one was a used on about 25 years ago...). The one has shot fairly well, but the other I purchased started to do unusual things right away, like the peep kept rotating and it was shooting all over the target. I had a new string made for it and it shoots great now, and has for a few years.
Anyways to my question, when you purchase a used bow do you put a new string on it right away or do you shoot it and see what it is like?
Would you do the same for a new bow?
I bought a Switchback new and was fairly happy with the way it shot. I had new strings made for it and put them on and it shoots incredible compared to the way it did with the original strings.Mathews Switchback 63# 29"
