Default Jack Kempf KwykStyk value

The old shoulder isn't getting any stronger these days so I'm thinking about letting go of my KwykStyk. I looked around but, couldn't find any recent info about his bows or if he's building them anymore.
Jack made it for me in 2004, the riser is Cocobolo with elk antler inlay and the limbs are red elm and osage. It's in good to very good condition. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

Call him up and have him make lighter limbs for you. He may be able to sell your old limbs for you. If nothing else, you get a visit with the old guy.

I got to digging around after I posted here and found Jack's #, called him and had a good chat. I thought about your idea of lighter limbs or even a new bow but, don't think the shoulder will handle it.
