I bought a Martin Warthog from a friend Back in the early 90's. It is a wood riser compound bow in excellent condition. I have mostly used it in the backyard to target practice. I have been thinking lately on trying to trade it for a newer bow. Can someone tell me about this bow and maybe what kind of value it might have. I don't know much about it, but it performs well. It does get a bit heavy after a while, plus I like the looks of the newer bows better. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum.

There may be a few collectors out there, but I'm afraid for the most part, the old compound bows of yesteryear have very little value. It's a shame as they are part of the history of the compound bow.

As for new bows, well, the world is you oyster, and as the 2012 models are just starting to come out, there are going to be some 2011 model bargains to be had.

If you can tell us a little more about what kind of archery you would like to use your new bow for, and your style of shooting, then there are a lot of experienced people on this forum who will be pleased to offer sound advice.

Unfortunatally the guys are right, afraid there's not much of a market for old compounds, but we do like to see pics of old compounds. :)
