Can anyone provide information on a bow with York USA on the limbs? I know York manufactured bows and then was bought out. I would like to know approximately how old this bow is.

Best Regards,
CF

I have a York Predator. 45 3/4" AtA, 9" BH and wheels on recurved limbs. What a sweet shooter. Sooooo easy to shoot. I almost think one could sneeze during release and still score a hit!:D This, I was told, is an early 90s model, but has some features not usually found on bows that old. I may rip it apart, paint it up and build a spot rig with her. I think it would work great.

York was made in KCMO in the 80's and early 90's. Dean Pridgen worked for York in R&D during their last few years. Their Shoot through wasn't the first built but first manufactured and sold and it was called the STO. I will suggest being very careful pressing this bow as the first year model will break in the press. If the limbs are wood then most likely 80's and the glass were late towards the end of manufacturing.
