    I paid 175.00 when I bought it. HawgEnvy sold it to me last year. Since then I have repainted the riser. Ill take a few pics and post them shortly. There are a few things I need a second opinion on. Pic to come!

    In the first three pictures I took, you can see where there looks like a bad spot on the cam. If I was to switch the string to the other side it would chew the string. I did not see this when I purchased it, but its there non the less. It doesnt affect the way the bow shoots at all. Does anyone know what could have caused this? Any info would be great!

    The paint job needs to touched up a bit and a new set of strings and cables made up. Other than that it shoots pretty fast.

    I would say cams are worth more than the bow,but really if it was stock camo in good shape my quote would stand,now seeing this maybe 123-130 max.Why dont you keep it as a backup bow or make a fishing rig out of it....

    Ys that damage wont really bother you unless you want use shoot through system,but with that damage no go......how it happened who knows.remember bow is a 2004 model................

    Yeah I was sorta figuring that. The more pics I took the more it started running thru my head. I think what I will do is hold on to it until I come across a good craigslist deal and then see what I can get for it. Ill prolly have some strings made up for it and get a half decent set of sights. Thanks for the help, I appreciate it!

    Its rated at 320 fps and as Speedy said, the cams are what people will be looking at if you sell it. Whats your draw length? If you're drawing those bic C cams anywhere near 30 inches, the bow will deliver that 320 fps.

    My draw length is 29" so Im pretty close to 320, but Im not a speed guy. As long as its accurate and quiet it'll work for me.
