I was at a local archery shop yesterday. I test shot a Bowtech Heartbreaker and fell in love with it instantly. I am a short draw shooter (26 DL) and this was the smoothest bow I have ever draw for my frame. I could not resist from not buying it. I like the fact that I can get the same performance and even shoot a little harder with this bow at 60 lbs as I can with 73 lbs with the Cheetah. The 2010 Cheetah is still a great bow but I can't keep both of them. Im looking to post it on Ebay if anyone is interested let me know.

Not going to keep it as a backup?

I would at least consider this before throwing it out to fleabay. I have another bow on my brain - but can't see myself getting rid of my '08

Speedy I didn't even plan on switching it was a total curveball. Went with a friend cause he wanted a Bowtech Assasin. I always knew the Heartbreaker was a great short draw bow. Once I shot it that was it!

Droppizel and Destroyer as far as back up bows go. I think its all a bunch of hype! How often do you really need it? I know its a risk of the one bow has a problem. Its just like buying and selling a car. You want to sell the car while it still holds value the longer you hold it the more it depreciates. The Cheetah is a 2010 and its like new better to sell and get the money back to put into the other one while its still good.

LOL! Not really hype. If it wasn't for my other bows I would have been unable to shoot for many months. Of course not everyone has trouble so they might not need a backup. Wish that was me. :(




Destroyer you would have not been able to shoot for months? Either it had taken forever to fix your bow problems or you live in the boondocks somewhere. Been bowhunting for 15 years and never had to rely on a backup bow. Its a catch 22. Most problems with a bow you would have minor issues most of the time and can be fixed real quick. Granted a limb problem or something else serious would take longer to fix. If I kept the Cheetah for another 3 years or more it would not resale for hardly anything.

Don't know what you are expecting to get for it but there are NEW Cheetah's on E-bay now for around $200.00. I doubt you'll get $200.00 for a good used one. I think I would seriously consider keeping it.

Hey Bob might want to go check my auction out cuz I got bidders already over $240.00 with 4 days left. I threw in some accessories and the bow was only hunted lightly for one year and looks new. Also a custom string will bring the value up. :D The value of the bow is still good and it shows here. If I waited 3 more years then yes be worth less that $200. Why keep it and let the value go down more? What are the odds I will ever need a back up?

Bowhunter; My Onza is down waiting on new strings (not Martins non loop served kind). I can't really call it my backup, but my 2010 Diamond Iceman is going to keep me in the field. nuff said.

I foolishly passed on a 2010 Admiral for $350 ready to shoot!!!! What was I thinking??? My brother talked me out of a used bow. I should have never listened to him!!! Again, what was I thinking?!?!?!?!?

I sold the Cheetah for $370 not including the shipping costs. Not too bad :)

i got $275 bare for my '08 Cheetah. i had plenty of hits on CL for $325. but i told a guy if he came and got it that night i'd knock $50 off. i was given an excellent deal on the '09 Quest and wanted to jump on it. so i got the short ata dual(binary)cam bow that i wanted at a great price. no regrets here.

I don't regret what I did as well. I did my first Robin Hood last saturday with my new Bowtech Heartbreaker. Took me 14 years to do it. 4552
