    I wanted to know which was a better bow for the money,dependability.
    Both want to trade with me,i want to re-sell later?:biggrin1:
    The red one is a mathews ovation,the blue one is a bowtech old glory
    Both are same price with all acsessories shown.
    Also which would be easier to sell ?

    some will disagree w/me on this but the Mathews will always sell easier and for more money.......

    that being said.....what will the purpose of the bow be.....if its indoor.....the ovation would be fine.....if its 3d the Bowtech would most likely be better, the added speed only helps......

    bottem line the ovation is slow but a great target bow......

    the old glory is fast but the resale might not be very high.....

    and because the deal is off I think they helped your decission.....

    >>sell<<

    Ive got a lot of stuff to sell, dad passed away 3-years ago & my garage is packed with stuff i dont use or need like tillers,3-wheeler,lawn mowers,music equipment,etc.
    I was on e-bay & checked out some target bows to trade some of this big stuff ive got at equal value.
    Im not going to shoot the bow i get on trade i needed the value of the bow to sell it as soon as i get it!:biggrin1:

    Since I own both bows I may be able to weigh in here and actually know what I'm talking about :noidea:

    I love both bows and you can't go wrong with either. That being said I agree with Bowman on all points (ouch that hurt). :doh:

    I prefer the Ovation for spots but it is slower then dirt. The draw is silky smooth though and it holds extremely steady. The OG also holds great but it isn't as smooth of a draw. I have mine at a very very low draw weight (upper 40's?)

    For all around I would take the OG. For spots the Ovation.

    and the Ovation will most likely be easier to sell.

    dirty boats!

    Okay, if i deside to get rid of the canoe ill put a pic up.
    It aint no pretty boat, its hit every rock in the river good thing it's plastic!
    If it was metal it would look like a beatup trash can.
