I have a 2021 Hoyt Torrex ( bought new ) all set up.
Decent rig for the money.
Is my backup bow to my 2022 Blackwidow PSA2.
Am done buying bows. Hell the Hoyt I may let go.
Might order another set of limbs for the widow. Thatd be about it.

Thought about an indoor rig, or ILF for 3D. Dont shoot enough, shoulder still iffy at times. So not gonna.

I am also running an older hoyt. I know they there have been advances in equipment however the cost for new equipment rises every year as well. Personally for me the added cost for marginal improvements has yet to make sense personally.

Back in the day, I shot 3D shoots and hunted with a top of the line browning mirage. Fast forward several years... nephew was telling me about his new bow. I dug the mirage out, we set up some targets and it was amazing. His was noticeably faster, quieter, and harder hitting.

That said, the mirage was still effective. It is up to everyone's personal circumstance whether a new bow is feasible and practical. Saving $300 when you're going on a $10,000 guided hunt doesn't make sense. Saving $300 when you're unsure whether you can pay the electric bill makes a whole lot of sense.

FWIW: Archery equipment can depreciate pretty darn fast when the new models come out. Sometimes, you might be able to get the previous year top of the line model from inventory for a good price.

Who are you kidding new bows today lose half their value and are out of date from the second you pay for them and walk from the cash register to your vehicle in the store parking lot...mb
