Well, I have been wanting an E500 pretty bad. The problem is I have too many bows as it is, for me anyway. There was one on Ebay. With 2 minutes left on the auction I just sat here and watched it go to someone else without even bidding. I tried to sell one of my GT500's but just couldn't get it sold in time. I knew if I bought it without selling one of my others first I might have to find a new place to sleep at night.
I probably missed a very rare opportunity.

Don't sweat it bro. That E-500 was overpriced no matter how bad you want one. One will come up....they always do. I have 4 of them and got them all used. I paid $300 for one that was in bad shape and got it dipped=new bow. Just keep looking and it will happen.

Yeah I noticed that one on there the other day. It would have needed a little work done to get it back up and running so if you look at it this way you would have had a lot invested in it to begin with. Just keep an eye out, you will find one eventually at a better price.

I watched that E-500 too. Just too much for me having to change limbs to 60#. I did like the spring e-leaf thought.

Yea, the cost really kept me away. If it was around $300 then I would have grabbed it and cuddled with it out in the dog house.

Its all relative to what you want, you bought one for $300 spend another $30 shipping it to and from the dipper another $80-120 for the dip and guess what your $300 is in the same ball park as the other. There is more of a demand right now for the 06 line up, when I first found Elite back in October 8" Energy's were going for $325 E-500's could be found online at AT for $300-325 when they came up. Now people realize how great a bow it is and there are more people aware of Elite the price goes up. I bought an E-500 for $475 my first one. came with a new LD $80, a HHA $100 (used sale $) a Posten 12" stab with insert $55-70. so did I get a bad deal hmmm, 475-240 for Acc's and you got the bow for $235 bare bow price. I kept the LD so I basically paid the same $300. So I say again price is relative. Each of the 06 bows I have bought were all 425-475 all came with accesories that I sold off bringing the price of the bow down to $200-$250 bare bow.

Yes, I even found myself bidding on that one too.... LOL.... but when it got above $325.00 I had to let it go too, not saying it wasn't worth it because they are worth what you are willing to pay for it, but I didn't need another, good luck it will happen, just be patient.

That bow had alot of extras on it that could have been sold off to offset cost. It showed up on Ebay the day after i found mine in England lol.

That is what I was thinking. The accessories and bow case could have gained a little money back. Oh well, next time.

I should have shut my mouth about how good these bows were a long time ago and like Nick says we who are buying them and then bragging them up are cutting our own throats. As far as what I pay for them, I have about $440 into them when I'm thru dipping them but I consider it a new bow then and thats half price from what new Elite's are going for now.

Thats what I mean Jeff, you sell off the other stuff that came with it send it off have it dipped, and when you get it back pick up a set of strings and your out the $425-475 and have a new bow. To any bow I get is new as I have not owned it yet.:dance3:
