    Was wondering the same thing ... I think the trade in would be pretty sweet deal. My Dad has an older Cheetah and has expressed some interest in a new bow. Not sure he would do it, but if I had the jing, I'd consider sending my 07 Cheetah in. Wouldn't mind having another bow on hand, but the Onza would be my goal

    In a few cases we will recondition vintage parts so long as they are sound and keep them on-hand just in case anyone needs something. With a limited supply of these older parts it comes in handy. Other parts will be tested for integrity purposes. Much of it is simply recycled.

    My advice...dont send in anything that is in usable condition...especially if it is less than 10 years old. The Cheetah is still a great bow...no need to send it to the bone pile just yet. Go to pawn shops, craigslist, yard sales, etc. Buy the cheapest, oldest, crustiest relic you can find.

    Speaking of the Onza - What can some of you owners tell me about this bow that would convince me to buy it ?

    I'd say that for the money, its the best bow in the line up, if you want a dual cam and like a little longer axle to axle. Its fast, quiet, holds steady as a rock. Some don't like the bridged riser, and some prefer a shorter bow. Thats up to you.

    Isn't the Onza only 33" ata? That's still on my personal "short bow" list. I haven't seen one in a shop to shoot.

    yep, its 33". Long compared to most bows these days lol. I figure its the best of both worlds; not too short, not too long, just right!
