Recurve recomendations?

Postby passin through » Thu Aug 14, 2008 1:25 pm

I think I may well be a gonner!  I shot a buddys Martin Rebel awile ago and really like it.  However, if I buy another bow my bride will shoot me with it!  Be that as it may...does anybody have any recomendations for a economical recurve?  I liked that rebel but have always heard about Fred Bears bows

Please, somebody's gotta have some ideas. I'd like to get a nice long bow or recurve, too. I just don't know the first thing about it.

First bow I ever used was a 50 yr. old Kodiak Bear 45# recurve I borrowed from dad in-law.....put a new string on it and used it 3yrs...

Martin or Fred Bear for economy, Black Widow for quality

You can't go wrong with a Bear product. The Bear Kodiak (NOT the Super Kodiak), was once billed as the "working man's recurve", and although I disagree with the context of that phrase......well to do people work too.....it is also an excellent choice, although I don't think you can use fast flight string with it.
