This last one is what's on my handle . Got some phelonic I'm going to give it a go to put overlays on the tips. This bow shoots great and I want to try and save her.

Ouch! It looks to me like somebody was shooting with the wrong string and just very nearly ruined the bow. Could have been a dry fire or too light arrow weight also.

I would try to get some Loctite 420 into the cracks then put a two inch long layer of glass on each side of the bow. When you cut the string grooves try not to cut down into the glass much when you go across the limb.

Or you can take a hacksaw and cut off the old tips and reshape new ones with a dremel tool or drill and sanding wheel. My preference would be over and underlays.

Don't know who shot what out of it but I built a new B50 12 strand string and padded the loops. I shoot 495 grain GT 600 out of it.I think I'm going to try the overlays really not into shortening the bow. Thanks for all the help will keep you posted.

A 2 layer overlay similar to the tip overlays on a 53 Kodiak would look cool on that bow.

Since no one else has mentioned it, that is a really strange serial number.

Yeah that's why I posted the pic.Do you think someone sanded the old one off on a redo and just put the date back on. From what you guys have posted they were made before that date.A friend of mine gave the bow that way.

Do you guys think 2 or 3 layers for the overlays? I need to get some more material if I do both sides.

One on the belly, two on the back. It really kind of depends on how thick the material is. Three on the back and sand most of the top one off will make it look more like Bear us to do them.

Going to go by Bowdocs restoration tip overlays. Will try the 2 and 1. Have to get some glue.I saw the gel at the home improvement stores but have to go elsewhere to get the 420 that glue is expensive. The gel isn't though.Wish me luck! Thanks for all the tips.
