what should I sell this bow for?

9 posts in this topic

I have this exact kind of bow! I got it from a friend a year ago to start bow hunting. I think he tried to sell it before he knew i was interested in bow hunting. I would say with nothing on it you should be able to get a hundred for it. I love my Hoyt even for how old she is she is a great bow! Looks really taken care of too!

Not to rain on your parade but I think you are lucky to get $50 for it with everything on it. The resale on bows are bad, I mean really bad. I also think that bow is from the mid to late 90's. I know Hoyt made that model back then, good bow in its time and I am sure it will still do the job but the problem is finding someone to buy it when you can buy a fully rigged lower end bow from a big boxed retailer for under $300. I would put a reel on it and use it for Carp...

I would say you would get more out of it by giving it to someone. Try [YouNeedAuthorization] but i wouldnt give you more then 50-75 if a case is included i would say more like 50.

Give the guy a break, man! smile You'd be better off keeping it for a back up or like the others said, give it to a friend to get them into it. That's how I got started. Then it went to my nephew. Lots of miles on it, but it shot a doe last year and only about a half million carp!

I agree with the person posting above. Always a good idea to have a back up. And as sad as it is, and as good as it is, bows have come a long way in the last 15 years. Technology has brought bows to places people never dreamed. The Hoyt Super Slam was a great bow of its time. However, at this point probably not worth much.

Donate it to a new archer or like I said.. Keep it as a back up.

I too have one of these, I kept mine and still pull it out from time to time to shoot it. A guy can never have too many bows! Enjoy it and the memories you have with it.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
