Default Is my bow an antique?

I was wondering if anyone knows how old the PSE Phaser 2 is. That is the bow I started with last August after I bought it at a garage sale for $13.00. After I found it in my closet 2 years after I bought it I took it to a bow shop and got it rigged up, practiced with it, and bagged my first whitetail in the MO 2003/2004 bow season. The bow shop owner told me it was near 20 years old but I just want to make sure. I love that ole' thang because it showed me that I didnt need a high priced bow right off the bat to start. But I do have to say that looking at those nice Bowtechs,Hoyts,Mathews,Fred Bears,PSE's,ect. while mine was getting tuned did make me a little jelous [:@]. But any way, if anbody could give me the history or knows a page that has it, p;ease tell me. Thanks a whole lot and great hunting to you!

The Pse Phaser II was the bow I tagged my first deer with, and that was 22 years ago. So I would say its at least 22-23 years old.

I don't know the Phaser.... I have a PSE Lazer Magnum that that goes back to the mid 70s.

Does it have one solid limb, a vine for a string and bamboo for arrows?? , I don't think it is an antique.
