Default Is this a good deal?

My buddy wants a cheap beginner bow, and I saw an '06 PSE Bruin (29/70)rigged out (modestly) with a string/cable that is in good shape. Is $140 tydtoo much for this?

If it's in good shape and fits him, I'd say it would be a decent deal.

Check the classifieds on AT. There are a ton of bows for sale there and I am sure you can find something for him.

It's what I shoot and I love it. I have killed two with it. It's super quiet. It's no Hoyt alpha amx or Mathews Reezen but it's a killer. Great beginner's bow. I'm 6' 3" and 325lbs so it looks like a kid's bow in my hands. I've got a Bucknasty string that'll be here next week. I can't wait to thump that new string!

there ya go! You don't need the latest and greatest to have a blast! Archery is by far the most enjoyable form of hunting there is. Not to mention the easiest to practice all year. I love shooting my bow!

He ended up getting the whole rig for $125. Still waiting on it, since it is coming from Canada.

Yeah 125, is a good deal... good for him, so many people spend so much $$$ just begining. I think a older cheaper bow is the way to go.
