This is a 1965 Bear Grizzly, and 1965 was one of, if not the best years for most Bear hunting bows. It was finely crafted of Zebrawood for the riser, and is one of the smoothest drawing and best shooting bows I own. I have several other 1965 Bear bows, including Kodiaks and Kodiak Magnums and this Grizzly, while not quite as fancy looking, shoots just as well or better. It is the ideal length for a hunting bow also. Bear only made the Grizzly with Zebrawood for this one year, and while other woods and other years probably shoot just fine, the zebrawood makes this one special.
This is my first hunting grade recurve bow. It is everything I hoped for.
I put a string on it within 5 minutes of reading directions on how to use a bow stringer (which I bought separately).
It is simplistically beautiful. You can almost feel the potential energy stored in it's frame. The color of the wood is pleasing and not flashy. I lay it before me every night before I go to bed and meditate, that is how much I like the way it looks.
The front and back of the bow are black laminated fiberglass ... in bright sunlight, this might cause a reflection a certain angles, so I recommend getting some camouflage wraps for your bow.
Shooting the bow feels good. No weird vibrations or twangs.
I was surprised at the accuracy while shooting off the shelf with a bear rug and small rubber pad on the side of the riser. My initial groupings were about 1 foot at 30 yards.
Not bad for a beginner and not using any special aiming apparatus.
I am shooting Gold Tip 5575 32" arrows with .4 spine. I think the arrows are a little strong spined for this setup, so will get some weaker spine arrows.
If you are looking for a good entry level hunting bow and you have good strength in your shoulders and back, then I recommend you get the Bear Grizzly 50# recurve.
I shoot about 36 arrows every 2 days and am soar after each session.
It's getting easier to draw, but still feel it the next day.
I am a 200 lb weightlifter with no beer belly, and by no means a weakling.
If you are an advanced archer, then you might not like this bow because you will yearn for more bells and whistles, stronger pull, sighting system, etc ...
But, I am very happy with the Grizzly and I am confident I could even kill a deer or bear with my 3 Phat broad heads that I bought.
This bow was made in 1953, I will put it against any bow today for accuracy, quality, durability, dependability and beauty. Fred Bear and the people of Bear Archery, have proven the test of time with this bow and all the Bear bows I own. This bow is quiet, light, strong and deadly This bow is my favorite recurve.
Great find on my new Grizzly static tip!and is a great shooter. I have always wanted a static tip Bear bow and thanks to eBay I now have one.
The Bear Grizzly is a fine all purpose traditional bow. This basic design remains unchanged since 1964. Nothing fancy, but extremely reliable. I have 3 made in the sixties, and have no worries at all in shooting them.
