Default How often do you buy a new bow?

Someone posted a question regarding how often do folks buy a new bow.

I was a bit surprised how many people said they buy a new bow every year, so I decided to make a poll.

Every 2 to 3 years I like to upgrade to the newest technology. But now that technology seems to be leveling off a bit bows are just becoming more refined and I don't think the need for a new bow that often will be necessary.

Well, lets see here.....

I started out with a youth bow when I was 12.... Used it 2 years......
Then got a hoyt and used it probably 3 years......
Next came a PSE for 2 seasons.......
Next came a Jennings for 5 years.......
Next came a Mathews for one season
Then a Hoyt for one season
Then another Hoyt for the next season.....
Also bought and sold another Hoyt and a Bowtech.......

Then I switched to tradbows.....

Bought a Bear Tigercat
Then a Mantis Longbow
Then a Harrelson Lonbow
Then a Horne Combo Hunter
Then another Horne Combo Hunter
Then a Horne Ridge Runner....

So....... Sometimes it every year, sometimes not.....
