I went to a pawn shop & found a mathews Q2 XL with a case, beat up rest & sight, & the string/cable will need replacing. Price they asked was 399.00. I offered 250.00 & they will accept that.
Is that a good deal for a bow possibly 6 years old??
Should I try & go lower as the sting/cable needs to be replaced??

Just to give you an idea, right Now I shoot a Bear Whitetail 2 @ about 172 fps w/ 29" 2117 Gamegetter 2, 125 gr montec.

That model is one that guys always seemed to love. I've never shot one, but those that have (at least here on AT) speak well of it.

Thats a good price and there great bows.

Has the harmonic dampeners. Its a great all around bow for 3d, hunting and indoor.

Its a good upgrade for you for sure.

gratitude

Thank for all the help & insight gang. I really appreciate it.

I put some thought into it & my only issue is that it is coming from a pawn shop & I have no clue where the bow has been. I might feel a little more comfortable if at lease a proshop looked it over first or if i found one at a proshop & I would figure at least a proshop would at least look it over before selling it.

Any other thoughts on this??

Ask them if you could take it to a pro shop and have them look it over.

I would look at some on ebay first you could get one in much better shape for $350-$400.

I have one in the classified that is in excellent condition with winners choice strings and cables with about 50 shots on them and top of the line accessories that I would be willing to let go for 500 plus shipping and handling. I am selling it for no other reason than I have to many bows around.

A buddy of mine bought that same bow last year at a archery shop with everything on it and paid 350 for it. I have a Q2 and paid 350 for it 3 yrs ago with everything on it and it only goes to 60lbs. Other than putting a string on it if everything else looks good on it 250 would be a good deal. Do you have any buddies that shoot a Mathews bow? Or knows about them more if you feel uncomfrontable about the bow? Maybe have a buddy or someone that shoots mathew take a look at it and see what they think.

Word! Yet another excellent bow I missed the boat on! I wish Mathews would buy a bow company and release alot of these oldies but goodies under that name.
Didn't they buy yhe McPherson name this year.......?:)
