Default What' s this bow worth?

I' m planning on selling this bow and I' m looking for opinions for a reasonable price.

2002 MagnaTec
Single Cam
ZR200 Limbs
Nap Quik Tune 800 drop away rest
Teflon cable slide
Detachable quiver
Stablizer
Wristsling
29" 60lb

I got back into bowhunting and shooting some 3D about a year ago. I bought this bow as a good solid entry level bow. I promised myself that if I really enjoyed it, I would buy a better qualilty bow. Well, I shot a Mathews Legacy over the weekend and it was unbelievably fast and quite. I bought it and the rest is history.

I saw a Mathews FX go on ebay for $235 last week. Just the bow, nothing else.

Unfortunately the resale value on used bows , especially entry level bows , is alot lower than what you would expect to get for it. Around here you might get $200 for that setup. Thats why you see alot of bowhunters with backup bows and even several bows.

I' ve see Mathews and Bowtech bows on eBay at prices being sold not much less than you can get it from a dealer. The problem is that if you have any issues with the bow, cracked limbs, etc. you are pretty much screwed. I have a Bowtech Ext VFT and Bowtech and Mathews ONLY warranty the bow to the original owner.

Same here bowfanatic. The used bow market is poor here as well. 200-250 is about all you' d fetch for it and that' s if you get really lucky.

Hopefully, you get what you need out of it.

list it on ebay. Put a reserve price on it so you don' t take a bath. I' ve had good luck both buying and selling on ebay. Good Pictures and descriptions are the key.
