    Hi,

    I purchased this bow from Upton last March. It has seen very little use, so I figured I'd put it up for sale. I asked Josh about the gap where the frog meets the stick, and he said that that was common when the hair is still tight. There's also a slight bend in the edge of the plate -- it was like this when I got it new (the light catches it in the third photo below). It's in the same condition that I got it from Upton, and it will ship in the original container. Hair still has lots of life left. Rosined only with Carlsson. I'll also throw in a Protec quiver. It has one leather strap, but you'll need to add another tie near the top to attach it to the tailpiece. $400 including shipping in the continental US. Please let me know if you have questions.

    Tip to screw is 28". Balance point is about 9 & 3/4" from the screw. I can post the weight when I get batteries for my gram scale.
