    I went out to the shop and ordered my centergy hybrid in evII. and got wallet raped!!

    the reg centergy price tag was $950 + tax. wow! the hybrid was $1,050 + tax

    now I also told myself I would NEVER pay over $1,000 for any bow. (guess I lied to myself)

    never thought I'd pay over $1,000.

    the owner of this shop does not charge to the taxes if you pay in cash!!
    so I thought the prime centergy hybrid would be $975-$999 but I was wrong.

    for that kind of cash I should have bought an elite lol

    You seem to be really concerned about what other people choose to spend their money on?

    Been bowhunting well over 30 years, have only had 4 hunting bows during that time, all high end bows purchased used, spent a TOTAL of under $1500 for all of them combined, that's including accessories! I've probably spent almost half that much on arrows during that time! Damn deer keep breaking them! Not a chance I'd ever spend more that $500 for a bow.

    Raped implies you were unaware or didn't desire to spend the money...both false.

    Congrats on the new rig!

    if you have the money and want the bow, enjoy it. you're ahead of all those sitting back undecided.
