I've shot the same bow for quite a few years before upgrading. Buying new bows every single year is an incredible waste of money. But if you have the money to burn, go for it. Cuz I love to buy your used bows for about half of what you paid for it when it was new. lol
I usually buy at least one new bow every year and maybe play around with used bows occasionally. This is the last year for me to buy new though, I'm sick of being the one who takes the loss on the resale.
Just curious if the OP is under 30 years of age...lol
you need to add more years to it....
I'm still shooting my antique bow that is from 2012...lol. And when I get parts back I'll be shooting my Oneida again as well- from 98 I think. The there are the recurves I shoot that are from the 70's, 80''s and one from 08 I think.
There is no reason to "upgrade" unless you're using a bow that's about 20 years old. Anything else is really just a "want".
Depends on how much i like my current bow. Bought a new bow in 2013, and 2014. Still like the 14 a lot. Don't need a new bow, but I always shoot the new stuff to see if I have to have one. Maybe 2016 will be the year. Maybe not.
I've averaged one bow a year for the last 7 yrs. I can't help it when the new bows come out every year, I pick the one that has what I wan't and I just have to have it. I would love to shoot a bunch of bows every year then decide but being a lefty makes that impossible around here.
I had one for 10 years when I finally decided to upgrade and went through 4 bows in 3 years before I tried an 09 elite GT500 and I will have this one a long time. Wish I would have tried this one earlier as I wasted enough money trying new bows.
