Default question - need some advice

i'm getting fired up to buy a new bow. i dont want the excitement of getting a new rig to make me buy a lower price 08' now and regret not waiting to get an 09' later this year. does anyone know if either bowtech or hoyt is coming out with anything worth waiting for or should i jump on an 08' setup.

Bow companies continue to raise the Bar every year so it really doesn't matter when you buy a Bow a year later you may wish you had waited. I have got a new bow every year for as long as I can remember.

One reason I sell my bow almost every year isI can get a good price for my year old bow and it doesn't cost me a ton to trade up.

I owned an 05, 06, & 07 Allegiance they made improvements every year but the 05 was still a Great bow

Now is a really good time to buy an '07 model. Who knows what they will come out with next year - some years are pretty ground breaking andothers don't offer much in the way of improvements.

Make sure to choose a bow that is comfortable to you. Just because someone is shooting a Hoyt does not mean you should be. Many, many good bows on the market today.

thanks for your responses. i'll more than likely buy an 08 guardian here within the next few days or when i get some free time to get to the shop. if something better comes out, i'll deal with it then. i just want to be setup and comfortable before the season.

and i will post pics.
