    That's quite a bit for that setup, which is 12 year old technology. I think you can find something newer for 500. Fyi, I have a right hand switchback, and they're good bows

    What CA said.

    Its a great starter type thing to jump in with while figuring out what you may want.....only worth 200$ though even with all that stuff ( due to age)

    IMO

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll head to my local Scheels and check out what they have available.

    I've bought 3 used bows on ebay, and have had nothing but good results. Hoyt trykon xl, mathews creed, and hoyt spyder. Used each for a couple years, then sold, breaking even on the trykon and making a nice profit on the creed. I still have the spyder. I'll go into an archery shop and shoot a bunch of bows, buy the one I like on ebay, then buy any accessories I need at the shop. That way they make something for letting me shoot their bows.

    Check out Archery Talk. Always a bunch of bows for sale there. I bought two Mathews Z7s off there with 0 issues.
    DIY Public land Elk hunts are not for everyone but everyone should try it at least once in their lifetime. And for all those younger guys that say I don't have the time, I don't have the money, I'm out of shape or I don't have the experience to do a trip. I only have a few things to say. Take the time to make a experience, Save the money to make the trip, Get in shape so you will enjoy the hunt and the only way to get the experience is to go and make it happen. Hunt on Mark!!

    That's pretty high price for that old of model. Back in the day that was a sweet bow. Like stated go to Archerytalk or look for a used Halon on ebay.
