Item specifics

Condition: Used Sub-Type: Recurve Bows
Item Type: Bows & Accessories Brand: Hoyt
I am offering for sale a Hoyt Avalon Plus (though it doesn't say that on the riser-sticker, Hoyt have confirmed that they made some that didn't). I bought this bow in 2007, have used it twice in four years and it is pretty much 'as new'. I've shot it with G3 limbs (also for sale) and it's a stunning bow to handle, draw and loose.

The riser is 25", 'gunmetal' in colour, comes fitted with a Spigarelli flip rest and is right-handed. I'm including a bit of blurb now, the first line explains why.

I’m anticipating a few questions on the various items I’m offering so here’s a bit of information explaining the back-story behind the sale.

A few years back – c.2007 – I was persuaded to take up recurve archery again. On and off I’ve shot for nearly twenty-five years. I’d shot recurve in my youth but had secretly always preferred longbow to competition style. However, I dutifully kitted myself out with a pretty top-notch set-up, primarily via eBay but also through visits to an archery shop in Yorkshire and the Quicks catalogue. I even set up a club in the school in which I was working. Unfortunately circumstances then conspired against me. I changed jobs and that, coupled with the scarcity of archery clubs in my local area, meant that I really didn’t have the time for shooting – certainly not with the frequency required to make the equipment pay for itself.

 Jump forward to last month – I was contacted by a friend who’d just taken part in setting up a field archery club. It’s the full monty: sheltered woodland glade, targets hidden in the trees, shots taken across a river, etc. I dug the longbow out and rediscovered what I was meant to do. So, do I keep a set-up of stunning quality and shoot barebow – never using it for the purpose for which it was intended? Or do I sell it and give in to the romance and addiction of longbow field-archery?

 For me – no choice.

 So have a look at what’s on offer and believe me when I say that this equipment is all in absolutely mint condition – in total I’ve shot less than sixty arrows with it in the past four years.

 If you’re keen on getting hold of the full set-up, i.e. you draw approx 50lb at 32”, and you want to make me an offer, feel free to get in touch. Likewise if you’ve got any more questions.

 With regard to postage, I’ll discuss that with the winning bidder and what I pay is what you’ll pay – I don’t try to increase my profits through 25% mark-ups on P&P. Or you could just call to collect and give me cash on arrival.
