What is Bear Kodiak worth? My Dad has one and this is all the info written on the bow.
On one side it says Bear GLASS POWERED Kodiak
On the other side it has the Bear emblem and reads Bear Archery Company Grayling Michigan. Below that are some patents followed by Canada 1953.
On the side it has a number written-5L4207 60" 45 #.
What does the 60" signify? The bow is 56" unstrung.
What string length should I use? Will fast-flight hurt it or should I stick with Dacron?
It's got a plastic flipper rest stuck on it. Is this the best rest for this bow?
And I'm assuming 45# is the draw weight at 28" of draw.

Thanks,
Marty

I think I've answered some of my questions through a search on the internet.
The 60" means the total lenght of the bow, right?
45# is at 28", right?
I should use Dacron.
I want to take the plastic rest off and put back on it what it originally had. Was it the bristles or leather?
Should I be afraid to shoot it?
What string length should I have made for it?
Does anyone know what kind of info the serial # gives?
Thanks,
Marty

Thanks Range Rat,
I shot this bow a few times and enjoyed it (even though I can't hit what I'm looking at). I went to Bass Pro and got some bear hair, a leather glove and a recurve stringer earlier today. I don't think I will shoot the bow anymore until I can get a Dacron string made. The bow is in very good shape with no holes anywhere, just a few scratches.
I just looked at the link Stash gave me and thought it should be a 63 to 66 model because it has the Bear Coin.
I don't know why I'm so excited on shooting this thing, I don't think I'll be able to hit anything with it.:)
Thanks to both of you (Stash and Range Rat),
Marty
