I picked up this bow about a year ago. I was told it is an early to mid 50's model, brown glass, light colored wood in the riser. Specs are:
60" CW229 51#
I thought about refinishing it so my wronghanded, I mean lefthanded, son would shoot it but he has no interest in Trad archery now (compound shooter). It has a small sliver of fiberglass on the back and edge of one of the limbs that I already superglued down. I took some 600 grit paper to one of the tips and a few inches down the limb, and the bow looks like it would clean up nicely. Anyways, I have no interest in fixing up this old Bear bow and will most likely post it for sale. Is it worth anything? Whats a reasonable price to ask for the bow? I can email a few pics that I have. Thanks

I bought one of those about a year ago from a TradGang member and i love it. I don't shoot it all that much but I'll tell you that it shoots just as hard as any of my other bows and I wouldn't hesitate to let it be my main bow. My bow's serial is R.DZM 793, I think. Maple riser, brown glass limbs, 60" 51#, etc.
My recommendation would be to repair any little tags or blems and keep it. They're superlative little bows and God ain't making them any more.
