Ran across this add on Ebay. Now I usually don't recommend getting a bow off of ebay but this guys feedback shows he's a straight shooter. He says he has lots of Mathews Outback and will ship them for $450? Thats a couple hundred less than I paid. *Disclaimer* I don't know this guy or anything about him. Just passing on a curious deal.

Unreal, this is either a scam or the guy has lost his mind. There has not been a single Outback sold in the past month on ebay that cheap. I looked. Plus, you can't ship a bow for $7.00 without losing money.

Not to mention that there will be no warranty from Mathews either. Part of their policy prohibits selling over the net but only from certified shops.

That may be but my friend bought a used MQ1, and found it had cracked limbs. Mathews covered the limbs for free!
Good company.

That's just the starting bid guys. Chances are, in the 6 days left, the price will be near the price it sells for in stores.
That's what I thought too until I read his full add. Says he has lots of them and will ship them for $450. Also if you view his other auctions he says the same about Hoyt's Xtec.

I don't know this guy from adam,,,just ran across the add and thought I'd share it with folks on the forum.

That doesn't make any sense. Where the heck is he getting them so cheap? Sounds like a scam to me!

Not sure if if he is legit, but he is covered under Paypal protection plan up to $500 plus he takes credit cards, Most guys who are out to scam people only take M/O or cashiers check. If he is not legit and you use paypal then your covered. If you use your own credit card then you can dispute the charges. The bows could be hot, who knows???:confused:

Yup same reply I got when I emailed him. No paypal.
Three charge backs? Who in their right mind would turn down this deal.
