I have to say the Switchback XT hands down, no questions asked. The Switchback XTs are going, used without accessories, for $550 at least on Ebay and production of them stopped several years ago.

Tributes are only going for $400 tops.

Hoyt's UltraMax is holding decent value as well.

So, what bow do you think is holding its value the best?

I think the SB XT is going to take the cake on this one...

I can't think of another bow that comes close, asides from the UltraTec

If the cam says "XT" then it is an Switchback XT.

If it says "C1" or "Cobra" then it is a Switchback.

The year your bow was produced can be determined by the serial number.

if i bought my bow secondhand how do I tell what model switchback it is?

SBXT for sure.

That said, i have one with a Torqueless low wrist, comp nose in 27" / 70# if anyone's shopping. PM me. i decided i could use a few things more than a back up bow.

Whichever bow works the best for me. Once it stops working well, it has no value to me.

Its impossible to find a used cheap one anywhere


people buy them up and fix them and shoot them


Ted Nugent still shoots his in his yard.

Bowtech Ally I sold my 70lb, only because i had to drop to a 60lb bow. if you see them for sale, on AT, and ebay, they get alot for them.

^^ Agreed a black widow holds it value well.

Next, The Pro- Elites from Hoyt also hold their value, that or an Apex 7.

I planned to mention the hoyt Proelite.

Another seems to be the Hoyt Ultramag. Granted, it was an entry level hunting bow in 2004/05, but a bare bow was $350 new then. They're going for $250-$275 at 4 years old.

The used bows that dealers have on there shelf. Because when you take a bow in to do a trade your bow is not worth much at all but theres if worth a fortune !! HAHA
