Default New vs Old

CurrentlyI have been shooting a Bowtech tribute and have been thinking about upgrading to a newer bow. I was just curious how many of you think the bow really makes the difference or if you believe you can get the job done with any bow.

You don't NEED to upgrade. You may WANT to, but that's not the same. Any properly tuned bow shot by a practiced, qualified individual can harvest game.

I've bow hunted since the late 60s, so I started with a recurve...I have had 3 bows...My last one I bought used in the mid-90s...As I shoot fingers, looks like I'll use it until I wear it out...

With practice you can kill efficiently with the cheapest oldest bow out there. However, I really enjoy shooting my 08 Bowtech Admiral, it is the best I have shot in terms of bow weight, draw let-off weight, speed, silence andreliability. I work at an archery shop and have shot Matthews, Hoyt, PSE, you name it. Had the manufacturers given me new Hoyt and Matthews bows... I still would have bought my Bowtech and given theH & M'sas gifts. Some bows are just alot more enjoyable to shoot than others. Speaking of which, I think I will go shoot right now, it's too nice out to be online.
