For the last several years i have always had a backup bow. The thing is i hardly ever shoot my backup. In like the eight years I've had a backup I 've never needed one.I am thinking about buying a new bow. I am considering selling my primary and backup to not be out of pocket on the new one. I wouldn't have a backup. However, i do my own work and would buy a spare string and cable. So i could have them changed quick if something happened to them. I am trying to decide what to do. How many of you guys have needed a backup during season for something besides string and cable?

I haven't needed a back up in 15 years. That's just me though

I just counted the years I actually had a back up. I guess the real total for me not needing one would be 14 years.

it's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it
experienced hunters know its not just a bushy white tail, its a big middle finger.

nothing makes a fish bigger than almost being caught

Never needed mine either- its for sale but a used bow is not worthh much
In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing.

I might not need one, but I like having multiple bows.

I have a backup, but I haven't touched it years and I'm thinking about selling it. Since I have every piece of eqiupment needed, I do all of my own work and if an emergency pops up I always keep my newest "old" string until I can get a new one from energywave.

Don't have one, but want one. Actually, want a new bow and keep the Switchback XT as the back up.

I just can't seem to pull the trigger. I constantly go look, shoot the newest line, dream about it, but just won't do it.....I don't know why.

I've still got the Xmas bonus that is burning a hole in my pocket and was all set to buy one, even to the point I went and shot a Creed on Xmas Eve, but for whatever reason I always talk myself out of it.

But to answer your back up here.

I only needed a back once when I was on a draw hunt and on the opening morning dropped my bow from the stand and bent the cam. I did not have a back up and could not get it fixed before the hunt was over. I still do not own a back up , but when I buy a new one I will have a back up. Just in case.

I had one for 3 years and had no intention of selling it. I found a guy this year that wanted to buy his son a bow for Christmas but couldn't put to much torwards one. I gave him a good deal on it and now don't have a backup anymore. With this being said, I didn't sell it for the money (not complaining about it either!) I didn't want it to go to waste in my closet when there are people out there that want a bow that don't have the money to buy a new one. Have regretted it one bit.
