A guy at work wants to sell me his 05 mathews switchback. it has a cobra sight, whisker biscuit, mathews quiver, newer strings,and a stabilizer. he wants $450. is this a good deal? i was thinkin about getting a new mission bow. would i be better off getting the new mission or the used switchback?

I'm not expert but that sounds like a nice deal but it can't hurt to offer him $400. I have alwasy liked used high end bows over the brand new cheaper models.

I think the switchback was $800 new without the accessories so that does seem like a pretty good deal to me.

Personally I would take a high end used Mathews over a middle of the road new mission.

I had a switch back and loved it. That is a heck of a buy. But see if it fits and if it does thats a hard deal to pass up, nice bow.

I bought a slightly used switchback 3 years ago. I'm glad i did, i would buy the bow. Shoot it first if you want, but thats a hard deal to pass up.

Yes, that is a very good deal, if you don't take it, I'm sure that someone will. Do a price check on the whisker biscuit, sight, and quiver, and stabilizer, you have half of that money right there.

NOt too bad. I bought a used 07 vectrix all set up for $500. I would shoot it first if you can though.

Shoot the bow and see if it fits you. They can recam it to make a smaller change on some.

Sounds like a good use bow for the money.

As long as it fits you i'd go with the switchback over the mission. Not that they aren't good bows but everyone you talk to loves their switchback and most guys wouldnt trade there switchy for any new matthews. Its a good bow and one of matthews better ones i think. Again as long as it fits and it looks in good shape id snatch it up in a heart beat.

FYI Mathew's lifetime warranty does get voided when you re sell it. Not a bad bow but if something happens and warranty would cover it your screwed.

I'd go get sized up at the shop and then visit archerytalk dot com go to the classifieds and start shopping. but 450 sounds like it's in the hunt with most of the others I've seen unless it doesn't have a drop away rest. Most are 500 bucks. I would also shoot a few at the shot to get a feel of what you like and don"t like

That's a poor deal, don't do it!!!!! Now do me a favor and send me your co-workers; name, phone number,email address and any pictures of the bow that you or they have.......JK. The Switchback is a very nice bow, even though it is 4 yrs old it probably still has plenty of life in it. might need to be re-strung, but there are some great aftermarket strings out there.

Look it over carefully and if it has never been dry fired or abused go for it.

      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.

      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night

      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?

      50 in 6 hours is great. Boat issues really put a damper on a great day though. Hope you get it fixed quickly.

      Well boat finally got "fixed" and I picked it up Saturday. Last week worked 96 hrs so Sunday wanted the day to fish alone. Boat ran great out to the spot, 4 miles or so. Fishing was great boated over 50 walleye in about 6 hrs. Caught them lindy rigging, jigging and bobber fishing watching them on the live scope. Kept 6 between 18-20 inches. After using the trolling motor for the entire time fishing, go to fire up the tiller and it bogs down and dies. Another 4 hours running the trolling motor back to the launch. Fortunate it's under warranty. Bummer of a day but fishing was great landed one about 7 lbs too

      Terrible news for that area especially this being such a prime time for tourism. We can only hope for dryer days ahead so they can get back to normal.

      For those not in the area, the Lake Vermilion area got anywhere from 5-10" of rain the other day (depending on your source). The lake is rising rapidly affecting docks, shorelines, and cabins. The Littlefork River that runs through Cook overran its banks and flooded the town. It's not expected to crest until at least Saturday, which means things will get worse. Places such as the Comet, the Muni, the library, and many other businesses are flooded. Many roads in the area have been destroyed by flooding as well. There's lots of damage. Below are two quick links.   https://www.northernnewsnow.com/2024/06/20/floodwaters-inundate-city-cook-evacuation-location-open/   https://www.mprnews.org/story/2024/06/20/cleanup-continues-flooding-in-northeast-minnesota-southern-minnesota-rivers-rising

      Apparently just the motorized portage.   If you paddle you are good to go.

      The only way I could do it is running parallel to the shoreline on the "L", but with the wake from the boats and my rocky shoreline, the waves just bounce it around too much, even with bumpers tied off. My neighbors dock is recessed off the main channel, I'm going to sweet talk him into letting me dock it there.

      They closed the Trout Lake Portage down washed out.
