    Default Im retiring my 2010 Cheetah.

    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.

    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.

    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.
