When I was a kid, a Bear Custom Kodiak T/D was my dream bow --- even more than the "modern" compounds which were coming into vogue.
Of course, when I got back into archery Bear was just producing the Custom Takedown Supreme (I'd still love to find one, one of these days), so I was really pleased when I managed to come across a "green stripe" early Gainsville bow for trade:
It cleaned up nicely:
and I was motivated to make a case for it:
Various threads on the bow and the case here previously.... Currently debating about getting a second set of limbs, and I'd love to get a magnesium A-handle.
Yeah, the Fred Bear Signature edition was way over-the-top. I'd actually be interested in one if they'd offered it w/o the gold-plating (too much bling for my taste). Quite the investment, there was one up for sale from the Martin Archery collection or some such on eBay.
- apply corner protectors immediately
- easier to apply finish
- no dividers --- I'm thinking a fitted, removable wooden box
- make the arrow holder removable so that it could be installed after making / cutting the box in two --- maybe modify it so that it could serve as a combination quiver and bow holder out in the field.
