Default Was this a little Steep?

I know a lot of your guys have bow shops or a least hang out enough at one to know your way around the back room.

Well as i stated earlier in the season i was goin to get my GF a bow, because she wanted to get into shooting/hunting. so i did, ill make another post about that another day. but anyways i got her bow set up today and my jaw dropped, i didnt mind paying at all and never said a word, but do any of you guys think it was a little steep.....well wait let me ask like this..

How much would you charge for this setupI provided the wraps and blazers, all they did was install)

6 GT Expedition 35-55 setup and cut to length(which they provided)

Bow setup, draw length, poundage, mounted rest and accessories(which I provided)

Peep, D-loop, and Kisser button(which they provided)

No tuning just set up, bow still has never been shot.

Im just curious guys, i get along with them real well, it jsut seem a little high...
Another thing, i did not buy the bow from them, i know that probably makes a difference.

It depends on too many things; did they tune the set-up or just install the goods? If you bought the stuff in my shop the set-up and installation are free. If you brought stuff in it was hourly shop time at $55/hr. You're looking at about an hour for what you listed plus whatever they charged for fletching.

$20.00 if you had all the accesories and they just put them on.

At the shop I work at, if you brought a bow in and the accessories you stated, it would have cost you around $50 to $60 to get it set up. Most shops charge you more if you didn't buy the bow or even accessories from them.
