Ok, I'm jealous. Mine's a 92 Ford with 196,000 miles on it. lol Still kinda runs though. lol when I was younger, I fell into the "new is better" group. I was shooting a new Mathews MQ32 back then. Took 2 men and a mule to pull the thing back, but hey, it was new and expensive! Now, I shoot only Martin/Rytera. Faster, smoother, more accurate, and yes, less expensive. I prefer to put the extra money in the bank, instead of in a bow. I say, let people say whatever they want. Once they can outshoot me, I'll listen.
