    If you knew you wouldnt be able to shoot your bows
    for tournaments and hunting season.
    would you sell them..and buy new next year
    or let them set around and collect dust?:noidea:

    Sit around and collect dust.

    Are you also saying that you wouldn't be able to practice (I'm assuming this is because of your surgery?)

    I couldn't afford to replace everything I already have and besides, most of my bows are 4 years old or older so one more year really wouldn't matter. There are times when my guns don't get shot for two or three years and I don't get rid of them.

    If I got rid of something just because I wasn't using it for a while, my wife would have been gone a long time ago. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :tape:

    Thats funny;;the wife thing
    Yes its because of my sholder
    and also i just purchased an 07 mojo and spent roughly $1200 fitting it up with poston v-bars and all shot 2 tournaments with it,and i just hate to see it just sit there.
    also im out of work on disability and only on 1/2 my income and thinking about all this money just laying around.:noidea:

    Yep, if you need the money that's one thing, if not keep them - the stuff -it will all still work just fine.

    I would hold on to your archery equipment as long as you can. like H.S said you will probably take a whupping on it. and it might give you the incentive to try a little harder during therapy so you can shoot again. some times things are not as bad it seems and you dont sound like somone that gives up easy. best of luck to you.

    Doesn't have to be a toughie, really.

    1. As mentioned, if you need the money now...decision over.
    2. If you don't REALLY "NEED" the money now, then you have to consider
    a. Will you want lighter draw weight during recovery?
    b. Will you still want to shoot the same way during rehab?

    You may find you need to buy new gear during rehab (if you follow directions) anyway. In that case, you lose less selling it now than a year later...plus you get use of the money now.

    Just my opinion based on limited info...but no matter your choice...understand you made the BEST choice for you at the time...and never look back. Regret sucks so I avoid it.

    Let someone lease the gear from you to see if they like it...

    depending on the set up I'd lease it this winter as I hope to put together a target bow with my current LD and then get the new Mathews when they come out for hunting....

    All joking aside...I sit and look at all the releases on the market and wonder what one I want to try next...last one I bought cost an arm and a leg and I lost a good deal of money on the re-sale of it.

    What if I want to try out a scope set up...we're talking 300-600 bucks!! Without a test drive?! We all shoot the bows before we buy don't we?

    Well the reason was i was on ebay and just watched a simular mojo decked out like mine sell for $1000
    it was kinda tempting to put mine up for sale.
    Being its an 07 not shot very much in exellent cond.
    if i were to deside to sell next year i wouldnt get 1/2 that.
    moneys not tight now but will be soon.
    and my wife keeps looking at me and all my stuff i cant use for the next 6 months.
    i also have to have neck sugury in 3 weeks and i dont know how long that will put me out.
    but while i can still type on here and all..i need to deside pretty quick.:noidea:

    If you need money..sell it.
    If you are going to shoot it again, keep it so you don't have to try and save up to buy a new one and all the trimmings when it is time to start flinging arrows again! If you will HAVE to pull less draw weight after your recovery time, sell it now while it is worth more. It would really suck to not be able to shoot for 6 months....I don't know what I would do with myself :noidea:

    I personally wouldn't sell, cuz chances are I wouldn't be able to afford a new one later and I don't need to have upgraded equiptment all the time.
    But if I couldn't afford to feed or clothe my kids, I would sell.

    Thats a toughie! though i voted collect dust. I used to race motocross and then I hurt my back at work 2 years ago. My back is fine now(except for 2 compressed discs in my lower back (6 yrs of football and 17 years of motorcyles) and I could race again but dont have the time to practice. Still have my bike/Trailer and all of my gear. just cant let it go, I often look at it as money sitting around but it is paid for and with my first baby coming in sept. probably wont be able to afford it later.

    I don't know how much gear, how many bows, etc. you have, but the tone of this post tells me you should truly sell, at least your newish, stuff. If you can hold on to a bow...then do it so you don't give up on the sport completely. Something else, you might consider selling, then buying a cheaper, lower poundage, older bow to "collect dust". In that way you have a "rehab" bow...you have most of the money in your pocket, when you finally sell the used bow you get you'll get most of your money back...and you'll have a new bow to work for. You'll be a bit down...but not totally out.

    Best of both worlds?
