thought was a good used 30# recurve on ebay. When we received it, it turned out to have been badly
fire-damaged on one end, and cut down from 62" to less than 54". Consequently, it had not much of
a recurve to it when strung (brace height is barely 3"), and it pulls in excess of 45#. I will say
that the cut-down job seems to have been expertly done - my local archery shop commented on it.
But it was NOT the bow we thought we were getting, and it was a waste of good cash. Go to yard
sales - you can handle it before you buy it and check for damage like splits, cracks and limb
twist. Memorial day weekend is a great weekend to go yard-saling.
