I am shooting a 2006 old glory but today I took my fathers old Browning xcelerator out of the case just to look at. Wow how things have changed. I think it was a 1989 bow. It braught back some memories because my first bow was a Browning Timberwolf from the same year that I wish I still had.

I still use a Golden Eagle Formula 3D for hunting and 3D, it is I believe a 1993 model and I also get out my Bear Whitetail Hunter (70's) just for fun.

Jennings Model T- Old Bears...

I have an old Jennings Model T circa 1973-74, that I like to shoot just for kicks now and then.

My wife shoots a Bear Kodiak hunter recurve and a Bear 76er recurve from about 1976-77.

All three bows still shoot well and are fun to mess with...

I have an old Oneida H250 that I still use for indoor target shooting. It looks a little strange with a long rod and 'V' bar and twins and sight right out the front, all done in metalic green. Usually these bows are camo and short stab.

My favorite bow of all time was a Martin Maverick 3d. It got stolen about 5 years ago.

PSE Carroll Marauder II - 1996 I believe. Jumpy as all get out - still catch it in my fingertips but it hits 2" spots at 20 and 30 yards with broadheads regularly if I do my part. It'll be in the stand with me opening morning.

Believe it or not, the fastest bow I have or which may actually exist in the world is an old XI velocity extreme bought around 98. XI was ahead of its time and died due to factors essentially beyond its control. The VE was the most brutally efficient bow ever made, brace height in negative numbers and the response curve basically just a straight line, limbs preformed, limb tips basically just moved in and out a tiny bit like modern parallel bows. That bow is presently in for an upgrade to cable guard and bushings to try to bring it to 2006 standards and shoot HCA arrows. Notably it makes no unusual noises shooting HCA arrows, and shoots them very, very fast.

One thing I notice is that you almost never see any of the XI bows made after about 96 being sold on ebay. Guys are keeping them.
