Rated 5 out of 5 by desertscout Bear Grizzly Recurve bow
I bought mine at a pawn shop in Clovis NM in 1980. still in box. It has given great service, I believe I'm on my 3rd bowstring. I'm not sure how many deer it's accounted for- I quit counting after 5. Ih has a few javelina and coyotes, and without bragging, beheaded quite a few upland game birds, It has taken Oregon rain and Southwest heat with no apparent damage. I do recommend storing it reverse-strung, as this keeps the arms from warping. I have owned a few compounds, but age and severe arthritis won't let me break over the cams. The old Bear, though, is still an easy pull , and deadly accurate. PS I've never used a bow- sight in my life!

I bought the Fred Bear Grizzly after a bad experience with a lower priced recurve. ......You can buy this bow! It's smooth...shoots straight and won't break the bank!

Rated 5 out of 5 by michaell91 best bow i have had
this bow is amazing, it is very light, shoots fast and accurate, and above all the service i got at the Rossford bass pro was the best i have ever had they knew what they were talking bout, told me that the arrows i was a bout to buy were bad so i did not waste money, and i give them a A+.

I got my Bear Grizzly last winter and it hasn't failed me yet. The arrow flies of very smooth and fast. You may need to get sound dampeners for the string. Overall a very well made bow. Very durable.

I would like to purchase a first bow. I have expierence but I have never owned one. I am deciding between 2 bows the martin x11-50 and this one. I am leaning twoards this one because it looks sturdier but the martin is less expensive. Can you help me?
Because recurves draw length are not set to a specific length like compound bows. If your draw length is 30 than a recurves draw length will be 30. A draw length on a recurve will effect it's draw weight. The draw weight you purchase for this bow, let's say 50#, is a statement that says; This bow is 50# at 28" draw length. But since your draw length is 30" like mine, that adds extra 4#, making the bow 54# (add or subtract 2lbs for each inch +/- 28")
