While I was dropping off my bow for a rehair, I was talking with the bowmaker and asked what he had for sale since I'm in the market for an upgrade. He doesn't make any in my price range (under $900) but he showed me a stick he had been working on that cracked near the frog end. He figures he could glue it up solidly, finish the bow and then sell it to me at an affordable price. He's going to glue it and roughly finish it in order for me to try it out first. Assuming I like it and want to purchase it, he would finish it properly. Could this be a good way of acquiring a bow from a well-reputed bowmaker that would normally be out of my price range? Or is buying a cracked bow just asking for trouble down the road?
