    How many of you got your money ready to buy the new '08 models. Or waiting for the 2007's prices to drop? I think I'm going to get my son a Rogue or a Catalyst this year for christmas. He got a new bow 2 years ago and its time for an upgrade. Maybe if his grades are still good. he'll get a 50lb x-Force?? who knows:laugh:

    Waiting for my Monsterbow to show up now, Starting to build a PSE Shark, going to sell my Hoyt Ultratec so I can buy something new. X force, iron mace, I also have my eyes on a couple of others. Wife said the only way I can buy any more is if one goes first. But she did not say I could not build one from parts lol (shark)
    But I am still really thinking hard on building a one off bow. I need to start checking into having a machine shop or someone with a CNC machine to make me a riser, Then take the best from all the big companys and build me the best bow way one can have.

    I will keep my bow for now. Unless someone make a bow that can shoot a hunting setup at 400 fps and is quiet as a mouse.

    We can always dream.:D

    New to me or "New 08"?

    In my opinion there is no reason I would ever buy a new bow, its not an investment, the loss of value is unreal, and the technology hasn't shown me why a brand new 08 will be better then a used 06 yet.

    Warranty is the only reason to buy new and you pay a LOT for a warranty, it not really worth it imho.

    guess that depends on the shop you buy and do business with... true the 1st buy is costly for a new bow but i traded my last years bow for a new one this year and it cost me 50.00 for the new bow after trade in....bare bow only both ways as i keep the accessories as that is what can be costly .....

    Wow! Keep your shop and give them LOTS of money. about 99.999% of proshops do not do anykind of trade in program. Most won't even sell used bows due to the implied "pro-shop" purchased piece of it.

    No compounds for us....we just put way too much into our new recurve stuff so we've maxed out that spending. I did just get a new sight for the compound though cause I'm passing along my sure-loc to hubby. I'm gonna give the Shibuya compound sight a try, got a good deal for a brand new exactly the model I've been wanting on e-bay. To my door for $249 and Lancaster didn't have the exact model but similiar for about$276 with shipping.

    I'm going to get one, but I am not going to buy it. What am I going to get? Don't have any idea yet, but it'll most likely have Nitrous X cams on it and no cable guard.

    I'll say no, but the reality is I say that every time and end up buying a new one.
