Default Bows keep multiplying

I had decided to get rid of my surplus bows and got down to three. I decided that I wasn't going to get anymore then I found 2 in two days that were just too good a deal to pass up, then a couple weeks later I went to sell one and ended up swapping for two more, crazy how that goes, and all within a month. So I am bow poor again haha

I had to quit looking at the classified sections. Trying to save for a custom and they have too many temptations.

I am no longer into customs, so no biggy for me anymore. Most of what I got I could sell for a profit if I was inclined, but I will probably keep them

DRT, I messed up and saved for a custom, bought it, and unfortunately it was better than I expected.
Now I have 3 custom bows..
They are expensive, and you will never get back out of them what you have in unless you find a steal somewhere (custom someone else had made and you get it ALOT cheaper).
Buying and shooting new sticks can be addicting.

I've bought 4 and sold 2 of them in a year and a half. It's interesting to me that I see so many nice bows on the market. However I'm more utilitarian and once I find one that shoots where I look and feels good lm likely to keep it.

Bows are like having a tackle box. You always need something else!

True. I found myself looking at buying more practice arrows and some wraps today. It will happen before the day is out.

I bought 2 longbows last year and told myself no more bows. Just ordered a custom recurve.

Yep I went from nothing but a crossbow last month to three recurves and a compound bow all in about two weeks.

This used to fit me for motorcycles, bicycles, and bows. But I have been trying to stop collecting things I don't actively use. I am currently at zero for anything with two wheels that runs (2 projects) but I do have 10 bows. I just can't get seem to let go of the ones I currently have because the majority are bows I made.
