How old is your hunting bow? When is it time to get a new one? Mine is a 2001 model.

2010 BowTech Destroyer 350.... got it in November.

Shot a Mathews LX prior to getting the BowTech. It was from 2004.

Using that math, I should be ready for a new bow in about 5 more years!

My first bow was an old PSE that looked like something Rambo would have used... I got it about 2 years ago and shot it for a few months just to see if I'd like it. I now have a 2009 Martin Saber and a 2010 Cheetah. Used to own a couple 2010 Bowtechs and Mathews (Mission) as well. Haven't really looked at any of the 2011 stuff yet and don't plan on upgrading any time soon.
