I have an older bow but still have about $500 in bow cost and accessories. Have hunted with it for over 20 years and have continuously upgraded string, rest, silencers, etc. so I think I have gotten my moneys worth out of it. A buddy was recently telling me he has over $1,200 invested in his two year old Matthews. Just got me thinking it might be interesting to know how much everyone has tied up in their bows?

Come on guys, lets help the economy! LOL 1200 bucks seems to be the average on a bow sale before I open my doors. The bow @800.00 or so, rest @100.00, sites @ 80.00, case 30.00 arrows 75.00 release 60.00 sling 7.00, tips 2.00 bh's 40.00 stabilizer 25.00 that brings it to just over 1200.00

I only have 18$ into my Mathews Lx, arrows around 80$.....Funny story some dude sold it to me fully loaded.....he wanted 500 for it (he wanted a X-bow) so i bought one for him at 218$ out the door, sold my old bow for 200 same day. Good deal i thought, i had him put a new string to my liking on it before the deal went down. So yup 18$$ looking to drop a couple hundred into it this summer though. Ive had the bow for almost 3 years now...no complaints at all love it to death

Im around $1500 but the way I feel about it is if you use it and enjoy it,its worth it. My co-workers think im nuts for spending that kind of money on equipment but they will spend way more than that every year in casino's and scratch offs gambling,go figure :dizzy:.

Now if you only pick up a bow a few times a year than I think its foolish to spend alot IMO,since it wont hold its value like a gun.

For sure. Spending the money on a new bow last year has motivated me to get into leagues year round now. Shooting indoors at least once a week with a 3D once a month. Having a blast doing it too! Sure beats bowling in a league.
