    blackbear: I think the best place to ask such a question might be in this group as it has more of a national exposure. This would give both of you a broader idea of the fair market value.

      Big Al is right in that it's a much smaller group that is looking for nice trad bows & national exposure surely helps.
      Here's another page with lots of great trad guys.
      HH bows definetly have a loyal following but like anything in trad that group is comparitevly small.
      As far as value goes, anything you aren't buying new from a dealer is used (hope that makes sense) so these are used bows, shot or not.
      I'm a fan of HH bows, but they are not a particularly expensive bow new.
      This page is their current price list.
      $475-$500 new unless you want a bunch of custom stuff added (I think that actually reflects a recen price increase).
      I've bought as new Hills for $200-$300.
      When you decide what you want for them send me a list of what they are & I might be interested in one. Primarily I'm looking for a take down but you never know.
      I don't know if you've ever shot a Hill, but I'll bet you love the one you get. I've heard all the trash talk about Hill bows, but I've owned about 5 & never had one that had bad "hand shock" or the like. Every one has been a sweet heart, & that's comparing them to some other really nice & highly thought of bows.
