Howdy,

First time on the traditional page for me. I just inherited two old recurves from my grandfather. Both appear to be in very good condition, but I'm positive they havent been strung in a number of years. These bows are probably 20-30 years old. Both are Ben Pearsons, one #45 the other #55. My question is, is it worth it to get new strings and see if they still work or dont risk it and place'em on the wall? I'll try and get pics up later this week if possible.

thanks!

Like Red said, if there isn't any cracks, or damage to them they should be fine.

I have 2 old Bear Recurves, one was built in 1969 & the other in 1973 & they both shoot great.

Thanks guys, i'll see if i can get some strings and get this things kickin' again. From looking them over I dont see any cracks, so we'll see what happens next.

My dad just gave me his old 1950's Bear Kodiak recurce. I could not stand the thought of not shotting it, and now I'm shooting the heck out of it. I've been shooting compound for 15 years now and thanks to this old recurve, I've never been so excited about shooting. It seems like I'm starting a whole new sport.
