I just sold my Martin Cheetah MAG to get me a new 60th anniversary edition Firecat 400 in Skull Camo. Also got new quiver, sights, and stablizer.

The lure of a new bow is so enticing. But if yours ain't broke, well, you know what I mean.

But I hear you. Been drooling over the Bowtech Insanity Cpxl.

Not planning on it ...
I have far to much money invested in my New Breed Archery Nemesis Bow
which happens to be the only one I can draw back without having to Sky draw back.

I'm happy with my 2nd generation Bear "Lights Out at 65#" Now I just have to get out more. I do want to get some lighting knocks, and a new quiver.

Went and shot the Mathews ZXT, Chill, and the Monster today, I went thinking I wanted the ZXT, it shot really good, smooth feeling bow, very nice. But the instant I grabbed a hold of the Chill I was in love, shot it several times, and just couldn't get enough of it, so needless to say I put money down on it and they got me one coming.

 I've had to set out the last 2 seasons. So a new bow and all the works are in store for me. Shot the HeliM last year and really liked it. Gonna try to see if my shop still has one in stock for me, but not rule out the Creed or the Chill just yet. Either way come monday I'll have a new Mathews in my aresnal.

My Z7 has 2 seasons on it now,  I might restring it if need be, got the RetinaLock IQ sight late in the season, so I have alot of shooting to do as I didnt get to sight it in over 20 yards, and need to build a couple permanent stands, also have plans to build a haybale blind this spring so it is all ready for September.

I won't be upgrading anything this year as I spent a lot the last few years on my bows.  You can see what I have in my signature.  This year my wife and I have gotten into handguns and we are having a lot of fun with that.  I used to think archery was expensive but once you get going with the guns that ammo cost really racks up.  That and range time in the winter.
