Howatt Recurve Bow...

frootloopsfrootloops Member Posts: 2 ✭✭
I received this bow from a family friend several years ago and was wondering how much it is worth. It is in almost perfect condition, and I would say was only used a few times.

This is what is on it...

45#@28" HH79757-62" Howatt Hunter

Thanks for any information you may provide.

    Capt. Kirk is correct, most archery questions here come from newer posters and go begging for response. Be happy to have you stick around, but to get an answer you may have to go looking for an archery board or two. Good Luck!

    Frootloop, Recurve bows are starting to become collectible and prices are going up. When compound bows first came out and for years after, you couldn't give a recurve away. Now, many bowhunters are going back to them and many are collecting the good old ones from the 60's and 70's. I would value yours for around $100, maybe more. I often see recurves go for over $200. Keep an eye on E-bay and see what people are paying. It's hard to but a price on yours since so few are sold. The next "obsolete" item that I think will come back around is sidelock muzzleloaders. I'm buying all the good ones I find at bargain prices, especially Lyman Great Plains, and Thompson Center Hawkens. This week I bought a CVA St. Louis Hawken for $30 in excellent condition, it looks unfired. My advice is to hang onto your recurve and buy more when you find a deal. In 10 years you'll be glad you did.

    45# is the draw weight - 45 pounds.

    @28&quot; is the length of draw. Think of it as your sleeve length.

    hh... - Howatt Hunter and assume the rest of the numbers are a model designation or identifier of some sort. To my knowledge, bows do not have serial numbers.

    62" is the bow's length or height, if you prefer. The distance from tip to tip.

    No idea as to value. Welcome to the board.
