    I really can't afford to chase a newer bow each year....after 5 years I sold My Mathews MQ1 and switched to a Bowtech Destroyer 350 in 2010...I spent the money ($90) to have new cables, strings, Tuned by Mike Carter (Crackers) in St Joe and I am very happy with the bow and need to take more game with it......before I spend on a new bow....I'll buy a new set of 60# limbs.
    But my best friend switches every other year.......

    Yeah I ordered a new G3 Element back in November should be here any day now. I'm lucky and usually buy a new one every year. There's some nice bows released in 2013.

    I can't see buying a new bow every year. I usually buy the top of the line Hoyt of that year, and then shoot it for at least 5 years. I've been shooting bows for over 20 years, and have only owned seven. Three of which were little kid bows from when I was about 8-14. It would be one less, but I had a brand new Hoyt stolen when our farm got robbed several years back.

    I'm still shooting an 2006 75th anniversery Hoyt Trykon xl that someone traded in in '07, and I'm pretty sure its got more than a few good years left in it.

    My uncle shoots an old browning, probably from 1990. I think it's called the mirage. He still kills a deer or two a year with it!

    So far not as many people have switched. I have a bad case of archery addiction and end up getting a bow every year.

    I got the new 2013 Spyder Turbo....but I can't make up my mind if I want to replace the 2012 Vector Turbo. One of them has to sit the bench. Just don't know which one it will be yet.

    I'm looking to get a new 2013 bow. So many choices I don't know how I'm gonna narrow it down. I'm in the new bow every 5 years or so club too. I hear guy's ordering new bows before they're even on the shelf? How do you know your gonna like it or it will fit you right? Just curious...

    Well I try to stay pse, because the grips are always fine for me and I can adjust to the draw cycle. I bought my omen blind. Mathews I can't stand and Hoyt just doesn't mix with me. I have tried elite and the grip gives me issues, and that's all I can try, also bowtechs grip isn't comfortable with me. So I stay pse and buy blind. Always better and with AT I can always sell or trade.
