    Default How much do you have into your setup....?

    I have only $230 into my Ridge Hunter setup.
    Nap Pro 3000 Rest
    Vital Gear 1100 spike sight
    Alpine 5-sof loc quiver
    Shoots bullets!
    I need a new string, which i will get soon from Hutch, that will run around $60.

    I'm just amazed at the masses spending upwards of $1000-1400.00....

    My inexpensive setup gets the job done by far...

    Quictune 750: 40$
    Hoyt pro stab: 60$

    So about 100$ for my scepter V.

    But I know what you mean, I see people with huge amounts of gear on their platform at my local archery club. I don't get it either.

    It's matter of choice. Want the best, you pay for the best. Yep, nice to drive to your hunting spot in a new 4 wheel drive muscle truck, but you also can get there with a beat up Chevy S10.

    Martin has had two great target bows over the last 4 years, the Shadowcat and Scepter V. Both at a price of $800 plus. Tack on accessories of desire and investment can climb to over $1500.00 easily.

    $200 for the IM loaded plus the $60 I spent for a Trophy Ridge Drive sight and $10 for a Cobra Diamondback drop rest.

    $150 for the Bengal loaded w arrows and quiver and hard case, release

    Same for an '11 Exile that will be here soon

    New strings on IM and Bengal from Hutch when I refinished both bows at less than $30.

    So far I'm under $700 for 3 completely set up, awesome shooting bows

    Default How much do you have into your setup....?

    Hey, lets not forget our acquisitions of years. 4 Sure Locs, 5 scopes, 3 Super peeps, tons of standard peeps, 1 dozen arrows for each of 3 bows and a few dozen arrows in reserve, 5 stabilizers, couple dozen of "gots to haves," half dozen or more arrow rests, extras of everything we might need, and..... ???

    In my truck; one hard back brief case full of arrows rests, one hand carry bag full of something, one 2 pound coffee can with assorted field points, one tool case with tools to set up a bow,
    one Chronograph, Dremel tool, drill, one Martin fletching jig, one Jo-Jan fletching jig, 500 ? new assorted fletchings, 3 tubes of glue, misc. tools, Electronic weight scale..... My finger are cramping....

    And that in my bedroom (at least 3 catch-all trays full, one bow on the wall and one...two under the bed), and in my garage (one...three bows, one older Apple bow press, 6 or 7 dozen arrows...???, and what I have at the shop (TX4 Pearson, magnetic grain scale, couple dozen arrows, misc tools, and...).

    Two fully equipped target bows and one...make that two fully equipped hunting bows....
    Heck, I got enough in my bow case to darn near fully equip another target bow.

    Hey, I can start my own archery shop

    I have about $600.00 into my setup for my CougarFC, not including my arrows, releases and hard case.

    This was the least expensive of my setups in a long time. The last couple of bows I had bought were both about $800.00 bare bow. My 2001 BowTech Black Knight2 in 2001 full setup cost me about $1200.00.

    A person doesn't need to spend that much, it just depends on what you are trying to do. In 2001 I was trying to push the speed up as high as I could while staying shootable and huntable. Now I just want comfortable and simple.

    My hunting vehicle is a 1995 Ford Conversion Van.
