Thinking about buying used Martin Bengal.
Found a used 06' Martin Bengal in a local shop that the previous owner used as a "trade in" towards his new bow purchase. Now his older (06 or 07) Martin Bengal is being sold "used" in the shop. The limbs have "2500" printed below "Bengal." It is priced lower than any other used Martin used bow by $100 or $150. It looks decent shape except some minor burs in the top roller groove (looks like it can be easily remedied with emery cloth).
What do I need to look out for with this bow being so inexpensive. Don't think the store buy any of the bow's extras (like mods) but it does come equipped & outfitted, ready to shoot/hunt except case, arrows, tips & broad heads. I don't know how many arrows the bow or string has shot.
Sight unseen by any of you all, I need some tips, info and insight please. Let me know what you think I need to check, ask about, and be weary of. Oh yeah: IT IS RH70, I'M NOT SURE WHAT MODS ARE SET INTO IT AND I'M A BIG & TALL KIND OF GUY: 6FT 4IN AND 330LBS.
Please let me know of any thoughts. All insight is appreciated. I have until October 18,2010 @ 5pm.
Thanks,

I am pretty sure that this bow is too small for you? What drawlength do you need? What is the color of the cams? What cams at all..

First Id make sure it will stretch to your correct draw length, or can be. If so, run your hands along the limbs to check for splintered limbs, basically eyeball everything best you can, make sure stuff aint bent or mis-aligned.
