    unless i knew the history then my advice is buy new. a few dry fires by the previous owner may come back to haunt you

    It has all the gears , hard case , spare string , too much stuff to describe. hasnt been used in ten years

    I can send pics if you are interested
    Be more involved and less impressed.

    I have a Mathews no-cam, set up and tuned by Antony a the the bow rack Nth California, I am thinking of moving it on, will talk to a mate who wanted first dibs . Doinker stablisers the works, drop down rest, decent sights etc. I was thinking about breaking it down as the extras were expensive. I broke another shoulder so now have done both,( look after your body guy's) next time in the States I will get a lower power machine. I also have some decent traditional bows I collected on my travels.
    I had some friends in the States who wanted to come here hunting and they could pay by leaving a bow behind. Just the hunting in Nth California/ Oregon is pretty good and they are not good at getting out of the country or taking time off work and when they do they go hog hunting in Texas.

    not the string, the actual limbs can get weakened, one day you pull back and your face is full of fibreglass etc
