This is my final push to complete my downsizing effort, so I’m pricing most of these items to move quickly. Items are for sale only unless you have a Sunset Hill longbow or something incredibly unique for trade. I’m only interested in shipping to CONUS. I have lots of photos of each item listed here.
I am in the midst of a busy travel schedule, so shipping may take longer than the typical couple days or so. I’m happy to advise you of my schedule so you can determine if you want to proceed.
Payment terms: Prices are net to me and include insured shipping to your door through FedEx Ground (express or overnight shipping may be possible at added expense to the buyer). I have a good relationship with the local FedEx folks and they know to code all my archery items as “fragile” in their system (Knock on wood, I’ve never had an item lost or damaged while using them). I’ll accept personal checks or USPS Money Order and will ship after the check’s cleared or the MO is cashed. I’ll also accept payment via PayPal provided the buyer pays the fees (add 2.9% + $0.30 to the purchase prices listed here).
In ascending price order, here we go…
$250 – Pre-Habu Longbow. This is a one-piece longbow from Chris Cox called the Receptor. I haven’t called Chris to verify, but I assume the bowyer is the same Chris Cox of Habu Bows. The handwriting appears to be the same as on my other Habu’s. It appears to be nearly new and the build quality is certainly on-par with Chris’ work. I picked this up a few months ago and just never got around to shooting it. The specs are 64”, 63# @28”. Based solely on the serial number (7498), I’m guessing Chris finished this bow on July 4th, 1998. I don’t know much about the bow but figure any bow from a craftsman like Chris ought to be worth more than the asking price of this bow.
$300 – Custom LongRiver Elk R/D design in good used condition. I don’t know much about this bow. I bought it on a whim because it so doggone pretty, but I developed a shoulder issue shortly afterward and never got around to shooting once the shoulder healed. 62”, 57# @26½”.
$500 - JD Berry Serpentine. I took this bow as a trade a few months ago and it shoots incredibly well. 60”, 56# @ 28½”. The bow is quiet and, as mentioned, shoots amazingly well. This is one that I may backtrack on selling. James is a friend and one of my favorite bowyers, and people. So if this bow doesn’t sell at this price, I’m happy to keep it for the work of art it is. The finish isn’t perfect and the bow has been used, but none of the finish imperfections affect performance. There are some light scratches here and there and some slight hazing common to clear glass on the belly side, but all in all, this is a solid bow with the craftsmanship James is known for.
