    my nephew found it in a storage locker he bought, he is not into archery so he gave it to me.

    It is in great shape, paint is mint, sticker is aswell so it has seen no weather that we know of...
    as per the sticker its 50 -70 lbs an a med draw What range is that ? can it be changed?
    Mostly i would like to know is year, and what value it may hold.

    Nice bow but they have improved them since. I almost ended up building strings for their company but it would have tied us up too much. Nutty Native owns one or did ask him he could help you.

    So if it is a tom cat would they had write a TC to start the serial number... I just looked at a post that said 3rd letter in ser number is the year it is a printed ser num that starts with Q superceded with hand writen letter or letters... hard to read it so if they hand wrote a tc its a 2000 acording to that post ...lol

    Generally the model will be silk screened on the outer limbs. Tom Cat, Screaming Eagle, or whatever. The serial number will tell exactly what it is but you need to decipher it. Great bows, 50-70 lb, adjustable like all compounds with limb screws. Hold good value, older models like that are excellent bow fishing rigs using fingers. Some can be tricky to quiet down, they like heavy arrows. I have a thing for them, can't explain it.

    I think medium draw is 27-30" and can be changed with modules that go in each cam, should take 4 per draw length. Module sets go for $19 these modules also control the let off rate from 0-80 %. Has to do with tail length and shape. I don't think it's a 2000 but could be wrong. Tom Cats are late 80's - mid 90's I believe. 2000 models are redesigned, mostly Black Eagles, and BE II's.

    Post a picture of the sticker inside the bottom limb, I may be able to figure it out. The older Oneida's go from $150 up depending on shape, model, and camo pattern.

    This is a 01 or 04 (can't remember) Black Eagle that I use to have. Totally redesigned everything. These bows are a tad heavier & louder than most care for. My first bow was a 82 Oneida Screaming Eagle that I got in 83. The noise has always been my issue with them. Other forums say to shoot 500+ grain arrow, put mole skin in certain spots, string silencers, and a good stabilizer. I'm working a deal on an Oneida Extreme Eagle now, we'll see how that goes.

    I own 2 Oneida Strike Eagles that Iv'e had since about 1990,just can't seem to let myself part with them.It's very important to not adjust the limb bolts without loosening the timing screw.you can go to the Oneida website and download an owners manual once you decipher the info sticker & know what model you have.
