Thread: Looking for old compound bow manuals

  1. #1

    Looking for old compound bow manuals

    I've noticed while looking for older compound bows to add to my collection there are plenty of bows for sale, but the owners manuals are hard to find.

    I don't collect the manuals, I'm just interested in the information they contain. I take any documentation I find and scan it into my computer and create a PDF file out of it. My goal is to create an electronic library with this information and make it available to anyone who needs it.

    I thought Archery Talk might be a good place to look for information on older compound bows. I'm looking for any type of information, manuals, instructions sheets, specifications, etc.. Also electronic files, links to files, links to websites with information on older compound bows, like ArcherHistory.com, it all helps.



    If anyone has any literature (in any condition, as long as I can read it) on older (late 1960s through the 1990s) compound bows they would like to donate (I'll pay the postage) or sell for cheap please let me know.

    Please feel free to contact (PM) me for information on older compound bows and if I have anything that will help I can email the electronic file to you as an attachment.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Wing Compound Bow Information

    I have more information available than listed above. 1976 through 1993 Darton catalogs. More manuals for older compound bows, I wont supply the files for these , but links to the manufacturers web page where they are located (I feel that if the manufacturer went to the trouble of making the manuals available for download you should at least visit their website). And other miscellaneous literature, all in PDF format.

    Dave,

    I could really use a copy of the Golden Eagle Manual PDFs. I just purchased a Golden Eagle "Hawk" (may be a Super Hawk) Compound that a previous owner pulled the info sticker off. The bow is in great shape but needs a new string. I measured axle to axle at approximately 41' and total bow length 42'.

    It would be great to have more information about the bow.
    Thanks,
    Shane

    I have the owner manual and 'fact sheet' for a Bear First Strike (not XL or XLR). If you need it, I can scan them in and email them.

    Hi, Dave. Glad to have found you and your info.
    I have a Wing 4-wheel compound, with a name on it: Frank Ketchum. It has two cams - simple ones - all the same diameter. Would love to have a manual that would tell me how to set it up with draw length, Poundage, Brace height, etc. I had an old Carroll 2000, but one of the limbs is cracked. I hope that there is something I can refer to to not have to reinvent the wheel - I'm inexperienced. Thank you. ntimeman1260.

    Hi ntimeman1260

    I sent you a PM with the links to information on Wing and Carroll compound bows. Once there you can download the information.

    I'm also in the process of creating a database for various older archery magazines I own. The database will contain the location of advertisements and articles regarding compound bows. This will allow me to quickly find any bow specific information.

    When the database is completed I will be able to provide additional information on specific compound bows to those who request it.

    I thought I might contact the publishers of the archery magazines I own and request their permission to provide scanned articles and advertisements. The only magazine articles I would provide would be from those magazines that back issues are no longer available to buy. I think if I also provide an advertisement with the scanned article to help them market their current magazine, they might go for it. They wouldn't lose any sales on old magazine articles and would benefit from the free advertising of their current magazine.
    This would allow me to provide the information without violating any copyright laws.

    Hi Brandon870

    I don't know if this will help, but here is the link to Hoyt's Tuning Charts. http://www.hoyt.com/customer_service...1_hypertec.php

    I think the chart you are looking for is located under the 2001 tab.

    Hi Red Cabomba

    I don't have a manual specifically for the Polaris, but I do have one for PSE bows for that year (I'm pretty sure it is for the nineties). Here is the link where it can be downloaded: https://www.box.com/s/66fae119ea31afb2bc82

    I also have another manual, but it is for earlier PSE bows (just in case it covers your bow). Here is the link: https://www.box.com/s/0f7649f2063e0311cff8

    I forgot to mention that PSE has a webpage with tune charts. You might find additional information there for your specific bow. http://tune.pse-archery.com/default.aspx

    Hi Chris

    I don't have any information on the Bear Whitetail II. I've contacted Bear Archery and requested any information they might have on the bow. I expect to hear from them tomorrow. I'll let you know then.

    Hi Chris I sent you a PM.

    Bear Archery customer service emailed me the manual.

    I also want to thank Bear Archery for their excellent customer service.

    Thanks again. I've more or less determined the bow as a model 0868 (based on the eccentrics, DL and draw weight range).. but I can't quite make sense of the (encircled) numbers on the lowest chart
