local guy has a 2007 rytera bullet X for sale. He is looking to get $400 for it with rest,sights, ect. I need to know if thats a fair price. I can't find any info about the selling price when it was new. I have a cheetah but I was looking to get something to target shoot with.

Depends on how it's deacked out. IMO $400 sounds a bit steep for a bow almost 5 years old.

it doesn't have anything special as far as it's setup. It does come with a case and arrows. The age was the big thing. He still has the original string and cables on it. It hasn't sold at the asking price yet,I'll just keep my eye on it to see if he comes down on the price. Our bow season starts in a week so if it doesn't sell by then it wont sell at all.

With the case and if the arrows are useable by you, $350-375 wouldn't be bad. That is if the bow is choosing you. It is a Rytera. Always pricey new. I would offer $350 and at worse buy it at $375. These days me personally with my business pretty much down the tubes and family medical expenses kicking our butts, I rarely have even that kind of money for recreation. Wasn't two long ago when I would spend two grand on a camera lense, :D.

I put myself on the "sell one to buy one prgram" a few years ago. I used to buy sell trade firearms and didn't have nothing to show for all the money I spent over the years. i have found that archery isn't any cheaper of a hobby LOL. I figure I could get it for $350 but I'm going to hold out as long as I can, maybe get it for less than that.

I had a guy selling a hoyt powerhawk for $300, I offered $250 and he was firm on the price. 2 days after I got my cheetah he emailed me and said he'd take $250 if I was still interested. I told him I already got one. I watched him reduce his price and in the end he sold it for $200.

Which cams are on the Bullet X, Vipro (single cam, 33" ata, 305 fps ) or Nitrous ( dual cam, 34.74 ata, 315 fps ) ? Price seems a bit steep concidering its age, but if you can use the arrows and the case, may be worth his asking price.

it has the nitrous cams and standard grip. It's not something I need just happens to be local so I will be able to check it out in person. The only thing that's keeping me from running out and buying it,is that fact that the string and cables are original. That's another $100 if I have to replace them right off. I just live in an area where there isn't much but dicks sporting goods that sell bows.There are a few small shops but they are bowtech only type shops.

I would get it! hell to me that is a great deal, for everything. Especially if it has the nitrous cams. As for strings? look around on AT...there are a ton of great guys on there, and they can get you a set of awesome custom strings for 50-75$ heck last year, H&M had a sale during xmas, 35$ for a complete set.

Shoot it, if it feels good, buy it!

Yeah, I picked up two sets of Astro Flights strings and one set of cables for $80 from Extreme Bowstrings in April. They were going for $50 a set.
These are top shelf. Make a world of difference. They don't have the stretch of the older materials either, and they are quiet and fast. I did put them on myself. But on a Martin that is a breeze.

Strings don't need to cost $100 unless you just have to have the name Winner's Choice. The other guys have mentioned a few. I'm going to mention Hutch right here on this site. There are strings just as good as WC but at half the price---and better workmanship, too.

I haven't really priced strings other than the ones martin sells. I just wanted to take into account that the bow might need a new string right off which doesn't make such a good deal. I'm still watching his ad for now. He bumped his ad and took the price out of it. So I'll wait and see. Thanks for all the insight, I'll keep you posted.

Roy, do a search for Nitrous cams, and see what other guy thought of them. Or you can find a clue in my signature. :D

x2 for Hutch. ive got 2 sets for 2 different bows from him and I'm extremely pleased with the quality and appearance of them.
