Had to drop poundage.
« on: August 23, 2012, 11:16:28 AM »
I ended up having to drop the poundage on my bow down to 44# because of an elbow injury. But I hate it to have to shoot like this. The arrow speed has dropped a lot. And so did  the accuracy. If i could sell it I would get a crossbow. But not very many people want a used bow.

Sorry to hear that, but you would be surprised how many people might be interested in a used bow for a decent price, a lot of people just getting into the sport may not want to drop the $100's right off the bat.  Used bows go pretty quick, or you might be able to trade it in on a crossbow,  I sold the sporting goods store my old bow for $100 after I bought my Z7.

Put her up for sale in the classified section here, fish.   Might be surprised at how many offers you get.

Well I would want $300 or best offer. That's what my bow shop said it is worth. They won't trade only sell on consignment.

accuracy shouldn't be sacrificed by dropping the poundage. maybe it needs to be re-tuned?

i know a lot of folks that kill a lot of deer w/ low poundages. you just need to limit your range.

it's never good to have an ijury limit you, but stay positive. at least you are still hunting
