    Bear Polar LTD

    Hi,
    I am looking for some history on the Bear Polar LTD compound bow line.

    Does anyone have any info on the design, year they originated, etc.

    I just acquired a really nice on on eBay recently and like to collect 1970's Bear bows.



    Thanks,

    I think clayking is close. If I recollect, I was shooting one back in approximately '76 and they possibly had come out a year earlier around '75. Shot my first 300 indoors using the Bear Polar LTD with the original Bear Weatherrest on it (stick-on rubber flipper style rest) back in '76. Unique design in that you could change poundage in either 5# or 10# increments (don't recall off top of head) by moving a wheel that the cable ran over to a different position near the riser. Kind of like a 6-wheel/pulley compound instead of the 2- and 4-wheel designs of the time. Still have mine hanging in the basement in fact.

    Hope any of this info helps..............

    On The Polar LTD compound bow I'm looking for some part specs. I need the pulley that increases the draw strength of the bow, so what I'm asking is what is the size of the pulley, I need Diameter, Size center bore hole, and the size the outside ring where the string sits in. Any Info would really help. Please and thanks.
