Default Need help pricing a bow

I have an '05 Browning Illusion that I bought for my son, last year. It's an '05 model that my shop owner was hunting with, last fall. I'm guessing he hunted 10-12 times with it.....and then I bought it. My son's had it since last Christmas.....hunting with it only 4-5 times, this year.

Truth is.....bow sold for $699 retail in the shop. I paid $450 for the bow with Winner's Choice strings/cables on it (I still have the new strings/cables that came on it....in the box). Other than that it was a bare bow. My son utilizes the Whisker Biscuit....and we'll leave that on there.

What's it worth.....to a friend? I don't want to take anyone fora ride.....but want to get a FAIR price for it.

Thanks.

Jeff

I would say around $350 would be a fair price...Maybe a little more maybe a little less. It all depends on how much the buyer is willing to pay.

How much is it going to cost me to ship it a few states away?

With the WB left on it.....Winner's Choice strings/cables (plus the new ones that came on it...still new & in the package))...I'm thinking of saying $325 + shipping, then??? This is a friend....and I want to make sure I give him a fair deal.
