Encore 48" approx 300 hrs

Do any of you think this is worth 800? I see them going for 900 on ebay and they dont look like they are in as good as shape. Need some input from you pros/

No im not the one selling it . I just found it online for sale and thought it sounded like a good price. Think I may add it to the arsenal. Maybe I can talk them down a little. Thanks for the input guys.

Yeah Id say go for it, encores are bullet-proof, I dont have a hour meter on either of my encores but I would guess my 32" has 2,000-3,000 hours.
