    I too shoot a Browning riser but mine is the S3. The Olympian doesn’t use International Limbs so you won't be able to up-grade easily. This thread http://www.archery-interchange.net/f...ry-please.html has a little more info. There is a guy at our club that shot an Olympian for many years with great success, telling everyone that it is the best bow he has ever owned.

    Depends - if it's got international limb fittings (so will take limbs from other manufacturers) it is probably a Browning S3 so worth about 50 quid for riser alone.
    If it's got the Olympian limbs, easily identified because underneath they have two silver hemispheres that are used to locate the limb, then it's probably worth about 70 quid for the complete bow, assuming you can find someone that wants it AND it has limbs in the size they want.

    Magnus Petterson shot some very big scores with it, but it's a pretty dated bow and the limbs were never that nice.
    If you make something idiot proof, all that happens is someone builds a better idiot.

    the limbs that are on it are the browning cck.

    I know these are criticised due to apparent cracking however mine are not cracked at all

    Give "Bulldog" on here a PM I believe he shot some very nice GMB scores with his Olympian and seem to remember him saying it was his 1st bow he got under sponsorship.
