    Buy or Wait

    I was looking at getting a Hoyt Carbon Spyder turbo at the start of the season but with school i couldn't. Now that Elk season is halfway over should i bother buying a bow or should i wait until next spring when the bows are released?
    i was looking at getting one of the following:
    Matthews Chill X
    Prime defy
    HOYT Vector 34
    Hoyt Carbon Spyder Turbo
    Elite Energy 35
    Bowtech CPXL

    Thanks in advance

    Are you experienced with shooting a bow? If not, go to your local pro shop and shoot the bows you are interested in. After shooting them several times you should be able to determine what bow feels comfortable to you. If it were me, I would buy now and start shooting in preparation for next year, its never to early to get prepared and practice. You might get a good deal now on a good bow before the new models come out.

    My brother just bought an elite 35 and let me tell you, its a shooter! That bow has the best draw cycle, the most letoff, the best grip, and the quieitest shot of any bow I know and it is much more affordable than the carbon spyder! Give it a look!

    We are just a couple of months away from most major bow manufacturers releasing their 2015 line. I'd probably wait. Having said that....do make sure and shoot as many bows as you can before you decide on one. That Elite bow is excellent, as is every Elite I have shot. I currently still shoot the BT Invasion and would be hard pressed to change I like it so much. If I did, it would probably be an Elite. Good luck!

    If you can shoot all those bows, one will "speak to you". Seriously, you will just know.

    If you have the cash and one speaks to you then do it. If not then wait.

    I would not plan on bowhunting this year, but instead get in an indoor league this winter, and do your best to wear out a target butt.

    You should add the Obsession Evolution to that list! Amazing bow! Really speaks for itself.

    I shot the chill and spider the other day and left w the chill, just sayin. Less hand shock, quieter, more stable at full draw

    Everything you just said screams Elite. That cpxl will serve you well too. Good luck!

    If you don't mind used wait until the new stuff comes out in the spring and pick up a year old bow on eBay. I did it this year and got a Bowtech Experience a few hundred off new prices. I love the guys who change bows every year.
