    Free including shipping comes in a hard case with release and 3 arrows. Prefer that it goes to a regular poster.

    It is on the way to you Bone. It appears to be in very good condition. It is pretty wood risers and limbs cute little wheels on it. Do not know the poundage but it does draw pretty easy.

    I got that bow put together last night for the Grandson. Turned it back to 45 lbs... added a rest, sights and a quiver I had laying around... Looked real nice.

    That is until I drew it to see how the poundage felt. It made a loud pop and the riser up by the top limb separated. Bout broke my heart.. Such pretty bow. It's unsafe to shoot now.

    Looks like I'm bow shopping his birthday.

    Dang... that sucks

    I had a guy who works for me give me two of the most beautiful, but old, custom longbows I've ever owned. Got some new threads for them, strung up the first one and gave it a gentle test draw......... top limb snapped right in half. I felt sick for the next couple days. I didn't even string up the second one. Glued the broken one back together and made em both decorations.
