I was considering selling my Old Glory to get a shorter A2A hunting bow and so I was doing some price shopping... mine is an 05, so in 2 years it has dropped almost 60% of its original value. When new these things were selling right around 750.00, now if you are lucky you may get 350 and I've seen some going for less. It looks to be pretty standard across the board though, not just mine... Current year - 100 - 150 off list price 1 year old (06) = 200 - 300 off the list price 2 years old (05) = 300 - 400 off the list price 3 year old+ sell it for 200 - 300 and count yourself lucky. Almost all the 05 bows I'm seeing that originally sold for 700+ are in the 300 - 400 range for bare bow Almost all the 06 bows I'm seeing are in the 450 - 550 range for bare bow Almost all the 07's are in the 600+ range (depending on original cost) So if my math is correct (which it probably isn't) If you spent 700.00 on a bow, the second you walk out of the store you lose 14% If you use it through 1 season you have now lost between 28 - 42% of the value. thats over If you keep it for 2 years you will have lost 42% - 57% of the value If you keep it for more then 2 years you will be lucky to recover a third of the purchase price. (up to or beyond 71% loss depending on price sold) Granted some bows hold their value a little better. For example Mathews Switchbacks are still selling in the 450 - 500 range but the loss percentage is still pretty close (750 starting price) Pretty amazing if you ask me. This industry moves so fast that the items it spit out are disposable, after 4 years there is no market for your bow anymore, and at 3 you are really pushing the limit.
