I'm wondering if anyone can help identify the year and model of this bow? I'm looking at buying it but the owner doesn't know. Thanks.

A wheel bow, that one is really old; I'm going to guess somewhere around 1987. You really are loosing so much performance compared to even an early 2000's model that I would advise you to pass. You could pick up a Cougar 2000 series with Fuzion cam's for a song with a little looking and have a much better performing bow; let alone something a couple of years old. A new Saber is under $300.; 08's could be had for a significant discount off of that.

I agree. I notice that the riser isn't even cut past center so it is an oldie. Most likely a cast riser also. Steel cables. Man, check out the old Flipper rest and that sight!!!!!! I used to have all that stuff, but mine was late 70's and very early 80's.

Thanks everyone for the feedback, interesting, an antique :p I was definitely looking for something newer. Will keep looking.

May be this bow will be soon valuable as an antique, so if it's not more than 100$ you can take it. It'll be slowly and loud, but for target shooting or just for pleasure it will be good and i think its A2A is long enough for fingershooting.And who knows-may be someday some bowmaniac will give you a lot of money for it :D

I don't think I'd bet the $100 on that! :D
