    Tuning and Finding parts for a Golden Eagle Compound Bow

    Hello,

    I recently purchased a Golden Eagle compound bow, not knowing what I was getting into. It cost me about $80. When I took at it my archery club, bow guru there told me I needed to change my string on the bow, which is a steel string.

    Also, I need new modules to shorten the draw length. I currently have Module D on it, and I think I need A. My Draw length is between 25 and 26 inches.

    What do you guys think I should do. I tried to upload the picture, but stupid Uploader is not working.

    There is a guy on ebay that is selling a lot of old Golden Eagle parts. You might also want to call Fred Bear Archery for specs. They go back to about 1993.

    My guess is the bow has either wood or solid glass limbs on it, and if it has a steel string then so are the cables and it will be impossible to time the cams...save yourself the headache since the limbs could be warped and will break if you shoot a light arrow out of it. Buy a newer modern bow like a Hoyt or a Mathews instead.

    If your photos didnt attach, the size of the photos are too big.

    Golden Eagle did NOT have steel strings! The Cables were steal coated as all bows had then. If you give me the exact marking on the mod I will see if I have them. What Model is the Bow? and a picture is also helpful.. I was a GE Dealer and shooter for 12 years.

    you can get strings and cables from any string maker that advertises on Archery Talk or your local archery shop can order them for you.

    They definitely do not have steel strings! They had steel cables that were coated but the string is probably D50 (Dacron). And you can tune wheels with steel cables! You can adjust the cable/teardrop tail by loosening the allen set screw in the wheel and sliding the cable in or out (measure the length of each tail and make sure they are the same....then you can make small adjustments for nock travel). Have someone qualified check the limbs and make sure there are no cracks or de-laminations in them. You can NOT use a new string (new string material) or even the older Fast Flight material on any steel cabled bows except for the late 80's Oregon bows that had upgraded 10/32nd size cables instead of the 8/32nd size that were used by all other manufacturers. Hope this helps. God bless
