Condition is "Used with blemishes". It is hard to find wood takedown recurves over 66 these days so I couldnt pass it up, but it is too heavy to shoot accurately at my draw length.
There are several noticeable blemishes on this bow, mainly on the riser. The original owner had drilled a Kwikee Kwiver bracket onto the riser so there are two holes in it. There are also some cracking in what appears to be clear coat of riser as you can see in several pics. I cant tell if it goes down to wood, but can say it solidly holds at my 32 draw length pulling around 67 lbs.
The clear fiberglass limbs have streaking in the glass so it appears they were made with that batch of Gordons glass that many bowyers had to deal with (looks odd, but works fine). The shelf of riser looks like it missed the sander at the factory, but works fine with a bear rug rest. Blemishes aside, this is a hunting bow and smooth shooter with the unique recurve limbs.
If youve never used a Wapiti before be very careful stringing them as the limbs can be easily twisted if you dont do it correctly. This is a used custom bow for a third of the price of new. It comes with a string that is probably a little long so order yourself a 65 one if you want to be shooting tight groups when it arrives.Let me know if you have any questions.
