new bow prices

8 posts in this topic

What do you think the price of a new 09 matthews will sell for at the bow shops? I know the DXT is around 750 right now give or take some change or atleast last time i looked. so will the new 09 sell for 850 or possibly more do you think? And will the DXT go down more once the 09 comes out. Im not only in the market for a matthews i will choose whatever feels best but when i shot the DXT this past august i sure wanted to fork out the money for it!

Prices haven't really gone up that much...I bought a Switchback when they hit the shelves a few years ago and I paid $725. The DXT is the third upgrade since then. Basically same price.

Koonie oughta know whats new for 09.

I just can't believe what a bow costs these days. At least when you spend $1000 on a gun it retains a good portion of it's value. When you buy a bow it's worthless in about 6 years.

I agree bows are overpriced and you made a great point about them dropping in value compaired to a gun. I usually pic up a 2 or 3 year old bow for about half the price, then I will hunt with it until I get the itch to upgrade.

I really can't see the price of hunting bows going up much in the next few years. I HOPE! They are outrageous pricewise. If they go any higher I think they will be shooting themselves in the foot.

    •   Then I wonder if they'll go back to the old way.
    •   Melt.   They should invite Obama and do a real roast of Donny boy.  
    • 6 million dollars per mile.    Oh My. Did Mexico cut the check for the down payment yet?  Has Merkel cut a check to Nato yet?    
    •   Plus+ 1 the carb. It's filling up the crank case with gas. After you clean or rebuild the carb tip it on the side with the plug out to drain the crank before trying to start it. Or if it's going to be a while take the plug out now and may be the gas will evap a bit by the time you get at the repair. good luck and let us know how it went. That was my first ATC.  
    • Ovi sure makes it look easy out there. What a beast.
    • And we know you like it raw.  No vaseline.   Pink steak, sure.  But raw burger just isn't my jam.   
    • AHH..... Memories.... I would have loved to have a odometer on our  Tri-Moto 125, had to have put thousands of miles on that 3 wheeler, burnt it down a few times when we were kids but Dad said you'll have to learn to fix it yourself! I'm not bringing it back to the dealer every time there's something wrong! We got good at new pistons and rings and gasket sets..... eventually we brought it to the dealer in pieces after we couldn't fix it anymore, think it was a rod bearing that eventually was it's demise, ended up getting a rippin' Tri-Moto 175 after that, those wheelers were our main transportation since we didn't have drivers licenses yet....... good times for sure.   You're carb is having issues, I would go there first, somethings not stopping the fuel from getting into your carb, either the float has a hole in it and isn't floating, or it could be sticking somewhere or your needle and seat are shot.   Give the carb a good once over and you should have your problem fixed.   Those were pretty basic 2 cycle engines, I don't think they even had reed valves.   Mike    
    • I planned on getting seeds and starting them at home, I won't be up there until late April. I have planted squash up there and they did not grow, I will look at blue hubbard, I have not had/grown them before, they sound interesting.
