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?
