'02 end of season clearance, 1st hunt fall of '03. Having bowhunted for better than 25 years I'm not so inclined to worry about always having the latest, greatest and fastest, everything is fast compared to what used to be top of the line. I just want a quiet and accurate bow and I don't care about that 300 fps mark that many seem to chase.

Default To Cool!

I was impressed to see people still using Darton SL-50's and 600wxr's!
My oldest son shoots my Darton 600wxr and my SL-50 is still in great shape!

I have been using a 1998 Darton Cyclone that I purchased new in 1999.

I have two: One is a 1990 PSE Elite series, which is what I'm currently using, and the other is a 30 year old Bear Whitetail Hunter.

I'll be using a 2006 but I do have a 2007 Martin Bengal that I just got tuned and sighted in for my Dad. Same POI from 10-20 yards. He'll be setup on a trail giving him a 12 yard shot so he should be good to go with some practice and my coaching.

I agree wholeheartedly.

I hunt with a 1995 Bear Archery Trophy Hunter purchased from Gander Mountain - double lung pass thrus when I do my part

Now that doesn't mean I haven't suped it up with cool stuff like a Trophy Ridge sight, Whisker Biscuit, Sims vibration dampeners, Alpine Soft Loc Quiver and Glide Slide, Gold Tip carbon arrows, etc

04 Hoyt Xtec 2000. I like it, but there's always brand new!
