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.
how old is your favorite?
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.
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.
Mathews Switchback 63# 29"
Victory Arrows and FOBs!
My '98 pse nova v-4. still have it and it has killed alot of deer, too! I have a '09 mission eliminator, mathews monster m7 and a mathews prestige. the monster and the prestige are just for 3-d and spots.
I like my trophies on my wall and in my belly
