    Well its been 3 years since I bought my first bow which was a redhead/diamond and thats when I found out how much I enjoyed bow hunting. After hunting 2 years I finally killed my first deer with a bow this past hunting season, I was able to sell my bow for almost what I paid for it. Went to the archery shop and shot 3 different bows. Walked out buying a Mathews ZXT, its still at the shop getting some things put on and adding some color to it. Excited to get a good bow that felt comfortable to me. hopefully I can get big boy with it this year.

    I always hated sighting in a new bow. The first few shots after she's sighted in are always the best IMO!

    What I want to know is how you managed to sell a 3 year old bow for almost what you paid for it. Usually 3 year old bows sell for less than half what they cost new. Good luck with the new rig!

    Congrats! I shot the creed, chillr, the zxt, hoyt faktor 30 and and elite answer and out of all of them i liked the elite and the zxt the most. The zxt isnt even one of the headliner bows but it shot very well.

    I'm fond of my ZXT, definitely will be the bow I'm going to hang onto for a very long time. Just felt comfortable to hold and shoot for me!
