Just bought this bow wondering about how much its worth or u would have givin for it?
thanks for ur help guys
Not one red cent! Being an invisible bow I would be unable to examine the bow's condition.Just bought this bow wondering about how much its worth or u would have givin for it?
Bow values for used/older bows are based on condition + today's real value and what someone is willing to pay for it. Hard to give an estimate without thorough exam...which includes drawing and shooting the bow.
What did you pay for it?
I am not that familiar with the Black Bear (recurve,) but if the bow is in good condition and it fits you, I would have to say you got a very good deal.
older Bears in good cosmetic and safe shootable condition go for around $100 on eBay.... some more, some less. for me to want a vintage bow, it has to be in better than just "good" cosmetic condition and it has to look as safe as one just off the production line. While "vintage" is cool and all, I personally have no interest in anything that is just a wall-hanger.
I have a BlackBear I bought about 25 years ago,I paid $100 for it then an that was in NZ$,,so around US$50 wouldn't be to far off.
The blackbear is a quite plain bow by Bear standards and mine is the only one I've ever personaly seen.
It has a flat shelf,brown glass back an belly,Stabiliser insert,bare limb tips so you wouldn't want to shoot a Fast flight string on it.
It was made in Gainsville Florida if that means anything to you.
I spent a lot of years wanting a Bear recurve,but they were always out of my price range when they were easy to find here,then when the compound came along all recurves became worth nothing over night so I finaly got one.
Funny thing,,,they shoot no better or worse than the Ben Pearsons and Shakespears I'd shot until then,,,,,had that name though
On ebay, recent Black Bear's have sold for as little as $56.00 to as much as $165.00. It would all depend on the condition, the draw weight and how bad someone wanted it. If it's decent, you got a good deal.
The Black Bears were kind of the economy line Bear bows. They typically don't bring a lot of money on the auction site but there is always the exception. $50- $100 is usuallly max
