Bows do not come with an expiration date. They can last a long time if well made and not abused. Sounds like your bow still has some mileage left.

if you are shooting 2 and 3 inch groups all the time then why are you wanting it for a backup bow? professional shooters don't shoot that well with professional equipment. you better make that your primary bow.

How long till the cows really come home? If you have a bow you shoot well, just enjoy it. It will likely outlive you if you don't run over it with the truck. )

It will last until it breaks. And no, I’m not trying to be funny.

Until it blows up...when is impossible to know.

I shoot many bows that were born in the early 50's and their still going strong. We never know the time or day when they may give up the ghost, but until then, shoot, shoot, shoot it!

A few more shots at least

I'm shooting a 1961 kodiak right now that is still going strong, I think more depends on the condition and how they were stored than age.

It's a doomed wall hanger. Let me take it off your hands.

Well my 1969 kh and grizzly are still shooting just fine. If for some reason your bow checks out I'm sure you can find one just like it, plenty of them out there.
