Pretty much nothing. They donít hold value at all beyond 5 years or so. Old bows are (relative to new models) poor performers at best, and dangerous at worst. I sold a couple at a garage sale for $20 with no arrows and $50 with arrows.

It will still kill stuff just fine, long as you have the limbs checked and put a new string on it.

That thing is from the 90s. I picked up a hour maxxis a few years ago, which I think was a 2011 flagship from what Iíve read. Paid $300 fully loaded with arrows and drop away rest. I think youíd be lucky to get $50 for that one.

Still, shoot an old 2-wheeler, and it will kill a Buck just as dead as a new high-tech version. If you know what you are buying and it's not been abused the second market can be gold.
Often I have been exhausted on trout streams, uncomfortable, wet, cold, briar scarred, sunburned, mosquito bitten,
but never, with a fly rod in my hand have I been in a place that was less than beautiful.

List her for half of what a 325 fps IBO bow is going for at cabelas and itíll go. itís got limsavers and a decent sight, Those weíre good bows back in the day. Something to be said for a single cam, with idler wheel. As a spare in a pinch I like to bring two or three bows on hunts, that would suffice for gophers.
