Bow price question

So i've had a mathews MQ1 for probably 15 or so years. it was my first bow and i've killed quite a few deer with it. My dad is buying a cross bow, and he has a "used" (practically new) drenalin that i'm going to buy off him.

So i'm thinking i may have to sell my old bow as money is tight these days. What's a fair current price for a used (in good condition and a killing machine) MQ1? I haven't the slightest idea what to ask for my bow.

Re: Bow price question

Maybe 100 if your lucky. Google it and see if anyone is selling one.
Old bows hold no value at all.

Re: Bow price question

geesh.. seeing guys selling them for 2 -250, some bare bow some with sights/quiver/rest... I'll prob sell mine with sights, quiver, drop away rest. I was thinking 200 but didn't want to screw someone, nor cheat myself.

Re: Bow price question

Killin, search eBay and see what others are selling them for. I'm sure you can get a good idea there. I agree though, like vehicle's their price drops like a rock really fast.

Re: Bow price question

$200 fully rIgged should be a fair price. Its a shame but used bows hold NO value at all past a year or two.

Re: Bow price question

Archery bows are always valuable to an owner who owns one for five years. And downplays the advertising for all the newer bows that came out after he bought his.
