Default New Bow Questions

When do the 2022 line of bows come out? Is it not until January at the ATA show? Tried googling and searching on here but canít really find anything other than here say of November.

I have a bit of a conundrum. Iím planning on getting me a new bow. Would you get one of the great bows from Ď21 or pick up a Ď22?

My current bow is 11 years old and ready to upgrade. I decided I would finish this hunting season with my current set up but, I want to have my new bow ready for javelina hunting in Jan/feb and or TAC/turkey season in March/April. I ask because since Iíll be dropping some coin I want to order custom colors and all that since Iíll be shooting it for probably 10+ years.

I would wait and see what they come out with before getting a 2021. Bear has released theirs, hoyts in October usually, Pse is on the 19th I believe, and Mathews is always November

To Me, one year is not going to make that much of a difference in a bow you will keep for years. Shoot them and see how much you like them.

I bought a new bow a couple months ago.. I'm left handed and the wait times were 4 to 6 months this year if special ordered.. I'd expect the wait times to be crazy again this year..

Buy new old stock. I would go shoot all of the 2021 bows right now. Pick the one you like best. Wait for the end of the season and the 2022s to hit shelves and buy a 2021 at a discount.

This is what Iím leaning towards. It usually takes a number of years for the technology to jump and as it is right now most the top line brands have some great bows just gonna come down to preference.

I talked to Texas archery in Spring and they basically said with the wait times and such if i wanted a 2022 bow in any quick time frame i needed to pay for one the minute they were released to get on the list for the first couple of bows that trickle in. So even if they release the bow in november you might now get a 2022 until December or even later.


Mathews is what i was asking about

I would look at a 2021 at some reduced prices as opposed to a new 2022. As Dave Ramsey says- "Let somebody else pay for the 'new'" !

Well after reading everyone's thoughts, I put a custom order in for a '21 Bowtech Solution. I shot Mathews V3 31, Elite Encore, Prime Nexus 2, Bowtech Solution and Revolt x. Right away it was between the Mathew's and Bowtech. After about 10 shots through each remaining the choice was tough between the two BT's. I am pumped and can't wait for the new ride to come in. Should be here before Thanksgiving.

Never understood why they come out in the middle of hunting season instead of in the spring
So you can get the latest shoot all summer and be ready for hunting season.

You are going to love that Solution! I picked up the SS in September and like you shot most all of the major brands. Did you go through Scott at mesquite?

I think the releases are driven by competition archery (i.e. indoor season).

I was told by my local bow shop (about to buy my first bow and they know that so they could be blowing smoke up my tailpipe) and they said the price of this year's models really won't drop that much when 2022 comes out unless 2022 is just a game changer... Should I wait a few weeks until the 2022 mathews is announced?

Mathews V3's have already dropped from 1200 to 1000 at my archery shop before the new bow has even been released.

There are still some waiting on 2021 models. As far as the 2022 releases they should start soon. But we won’t be able to get one till mid 2022 or later the way things are going.
