Sorry I didn't post sooner, but here's my 2 cents anyhow...

It's a decent bow--as with any other (regardless of cost) some like them, some don't.

As for re-sale, they don't do well. I practically gave one away that was in almost new condition at Denton Hill last year, after the third night on the trading blanket. Talked to two vendors that deal in used bows and travel all summer to different shoots--both told me their experience was the same--one lost money on a new X-200 just to get it out of inventory, and neither one would even make me an offer on it.

None of uscould figure outwhy, as Martin has a good name and makes a good bow.

If you got it to shoot, you got a decent buy, and should get more than your money's worth out of it. If you got it to re-sell, good luck.

Chad

I'd buy any recurve or longbow that I could get for a hundred bucks or less, as long as it's in decent shape... and if my wife will let me.[&:]
