Default Yamaha YTSL2

Hello,
I have recently inherited 3 recurve bows.
One of them is a Yamaha YTSL2 with carbon limbs.
Could somebody share info about this bow, and estimate its value?
Thanks,
Lorenzo

By the way, this is the 3rd bow: a nice Damon Howatt Hunter signed by Dick Palmer, I see.

I am actually quite happy... apparently this Bear TD green-striper, green-tips, was made in 1983 and with a UNIQUE (with customized inscription) scrimshaw ivory, not the usual silver medallion!

nice pieces to come into your possession, thanks for sharing
I have no ideas on values, but the Yamahas were reportedly great shooters, and the Bear is pretty collectible.
