All you Bear collectors...

#1 Post by Captainkirk » Wed Aug 17, 2016 7:42 pm

Just picked up this just-released second edition of Jorge Coppen's "Bear Archery Traditional Bows", chock full of all the stats and info on the Grayling bows as well as the famous take-downs and the newer Gainesville bows.
If you are a collector, simply want to pick up a nice used Bear traditional bow, or want to find out more about the Bear you own, this book is for you.
Admittedly, even by the author, much of the info on the early Bears is sketchy and somewhat confusing. Very few records were kept and even many of the original Bear employees could not remember a lot of the exact details, but this info will definitely get you close, if not right there.
Highly recommended!
