I am restoring an old bow. It has markings that identify it as a Tri-State Archery Corp (Danbury, Conn) - Kitten.
I did a quick Google search and found information on Tri-State Archery Corp, but no reference to the "Kitten."
Has anybody heard of or familiar with this bow?
Images are attached.
Thanks

They made a Jaguar, Wildcat, Tom Cat. Lynx etc. I could not find a catalog with a Kitten in it but a buddy of mine had one and I swear I have the same bow in the garage. The woven glass pretty much puts it before 1960 or 1961. I did not see that model in any of the 60's catalogs

Most of their bows used the woven Owen's Permaglass. I've owned several of their bows under both the Tri-State Archery name and U.S. Archery and all of the U.S. Archery bows had linear glass. That said, I never heard of or saw the "Kitten". Most of their bows were named after felines.
