Bear Black Panther Recurve
#1
I have been looking at old Bear recurve bows for some time now and I have finally found a Black Panther.

Does anyone have any information on what I should pay for it? Information online varies way to much.

They're good bows. I believe they were an entry level (inexpensive) bow.
Price is what ever the purchaser is willing to pay. That's one reason the price of recurves has jumped up so much.

I was thinking of offering $80.00. It is a beautiful bow and in perfect condition. I'm just waiting for his response. Really want the challenge of a Recurve. Have yet to kill a deer with a bow.

What is the draw weight of the bow? When starting with a recurve the one thing you DON'T want to do is over bow yourself. The maximum you should start with at your draw length is 45 pounds, less is better. When shooting traditional form is everything. Proper tuning is a must. You need to figure out if you will shoot split finger or 3 under, gap shoot or shoot instinctive. There is more to understand about it as you go.

I probably should have stated that I shot one when I was a teenager and had a Sage Recurve in 2012. That was a 50 pound bow. I'm a lot stronger now so I shouldn't have any issue as the Bear is the same at 28".

I was by no means an expert but could hit a paper plate at 20 yards consistently.

I'll need some help with arrow spine. Included in this sale if it goes through are some hand made wooden arrows but I'm not sure I want to go that route.

I also shoot split finger as it is more comfortable to me.

As far as arrows I would go with carbon. You could go with 500's or 400's depending on tip weight. Do some bare shaft tuning to get it set up right.
Here is a site with everything you'll need to know to start.
