I'm looking to buy a recurve and get back into trad shooting after being out of it for about a year. I'm looking at a used Damon Howatt recurve 40#@28'' AMO 58''. The serial number on it reads HM 31199. I was wondering if anyone could determine the year of this bow by the serial numbers. The guy said he's had it for 8 years but a previous guy had it but he didn't know how long. I can get it for 175.00. Is this a decent deal on a used Howatt? Thanks in advance for any help. Tradrick
