Buyer was asked if it was reverse-handle bow - he said he knew nothing about archery but had been shooting it.
The limb shape looked all wrong (like it was strung back to front) - apart from the handle giveaway.
My suggestion was that either the bow was/would damaged shotting it like that & an unsuspecting buyer could be injured.
While quite shocking, that's not the problem with eBay.
A few years back I bought a very rare riser over eBay (turned out the seller lived about a mile from me - who knew?) paid, got the riser and was happily shooting it when my mother sent me a link and said "hey look, there's another one just like yours!"
Just like mine.
It was the same ad, from a different seller - the whole thing had been copied and pasted as a scam!
Ironically, the ad included the serial number, so I could easily prove to eBay that it was a fake.
Ask yourself 2 questions:
1. Is it a reverse-handled bow?
Don't think so, I haven't seen many, but the handle fade-outs into the limbs
are NOT typically as abrupt as this.
2. What are those hinge-like features, say 6-8" in from the limb tips?
Looks like the place where there's a slight reflex/deflex or recurve & it's been
braced the wrong way.
The D is not smooth (because of those hinges).
Not the first time I've seen that... I even saw a target bow, once with the button fixed into the long rod bushing like a little stabiliser...
On the other hand, a friend once picked up a fully carbon dual-click for the price you'd normally see a standard one go... Sometimes seller stupidity is an advantage for the purchaser...
