  • Q:

    It seems that there was a lot of discussion about inconsistent product quality with this model a couple of years back. Has Bear improved this? I haven't read too many negative things beyond early 2012.

      Hey,
      This is the first bow I ever owned, so I really don't know. I have been shooting (at, mostly) quail with it, and I have no complaints. It is quick and accurate. But as far as a comparison, I don't have enough experience with other bows to help you.

      A:

      Either one will work for you with your draw lenght although the 64 inch will pull smoother than the 60 inch. If you are more of a target shooter than a bow hunter the longer the bow is the more stable and forgiving it will be, if you plan on hunting with the bow a 60 inch bow is easier to maneuver in close quarters.

      I have a 30-31" draw and use the 64". I think either would work well for you..

      Hi,
      I also have a 28 inch draw and I find it easier to draw using a 64 inch recurve. However it is also a matter of preference I have been shooting traditional since I was 8 years old and at 71 years of age my strength is no the same and yesteryear. I purchased two 64 inch recurves from 3Rivers archery last year 2013 and find them more comfortable than my 62 and 60 inch bows.
      Thanks
      Wishing you good shooting

      A:

      Get a 60" bow. At a 28" draw, the string of the 64" bow does not come
      back to center before the arrow releases, so you can't get good flight. I
      got the 64" first and did experiments for two months to figure this out.

      A:

      Hi,
      My personal preferance is Flemish Strings. A bow dthat is 64 inches long should have a string length of 60 Inches. I have more than seven traditional bows all strung with Flemish strings purchased from 3Rivers Archery. Additionally I maintain a supply of strings to fit all of my bows being 71 years old I have been shooting since i was 8 years old thus the amount of bows I own. The last two purchased this year from 3Rivers Archery both 64 inch in length one at 35 pounds and one at 40 pounds. I personally prefer a larger string that is 16 strand.
      Thanks
      Hope this helps

      The best replacement string for this bow is the Fast flight Flemish twist string item number 4443X in the 61" length.

  • Q:

    everything being the same (draw wght 50#, draw lenght, same arrow...) what speed/fps difference would you have between a 60" and a 64".
    I draw 27",have an old shoulder injury and thought 64" might be easier on the shoulder plus more forgiving. now i shoot a 45# 60"
    mainly hunt whitetail.

      A:

      It's a difficult question for me to answer. I believe the shorter bow would be quicker because there is less mass (weight of limbs) to move. Also the fact that you have a shorter draw length, so you probably wouldn't get all the performance out of the longer limbs. With that said, the speed difference would probably be minimal. The longer bow would probably feel more comfortable to shoot due to the length.

      A:

      Dont' do it!. At a 27" draw, the 64" bow will not shoot well for you. I
      bought the 64" Super Kodiak thinking the same thing. I now have a 60" and
      it shoots great. The 60" is lighter and I can't really feel the
      difference in draw force at my 27.5" draw.
      The issue is that the string in the 64" bow has a lower vibration
      frequency in the lateral (right/left) direction. So the string does not
      have time to center up before it releases the arrow with a short draw
      length. The 64" bow really needs a 30" draw to work properly. It took me
      multiple experiments over two months to figure this out. I used arrows
      with four diffenent spines, both bare shaft and fletched, four different
      weight tips and people with three different draw lenghts. I would need a
      high speed camera to prove my theory beyond doubt, but I am pretty sure
      right now.
      Shoot 'em stright!

      A:

      Close enough you wouldn't notice any difference in performance. Supposedly
      the draw on the longer bow will be a little more comfortable, but most of
      that is due to less finger pinch.

      A 56 inch long string and I would use B-50 string material unless you know the bow has been made to be compatible with D97 string material

      A:

      For a 60" Bear recurve you should be using a 56" string. As you do not state how old of a bow it is, I recommend Dacron B-50 for string material: http://www.3riversarchery.com/B50+Flemish_i1515X_baseitem.html

      A:

      Hello,
      I have the same bow purchased two of them from three Rivers Archery. If the bow is 60 inch in length you would want to order a 56 inch string. Rule of thumb the String should be 4 inches shorter than a recurve bow. I have purchased over a dozen strings fro9m 3Rivers. The number of strands of the string should be lighter due to the weight of the bow. I would sincerely urge you to speak with a 3Rivers Technician and determine the type of string you would like to purchase I am partial to the flemish string.
      Thanks

    Hello. Looking at buying the grayling super kodiak. I have a 29.3" draw length. I would prefer the 60" bow would this be ok .Or would i need the 64" bow. Many thanks

      A:

      You and I have about the same draw length. Either bow will be fine for you,
      I went with the 64" bow but only because I prefer a longer bow. With the
      shorter bow you won't have any issues. The longer one would have a slightly
      smoother pull, but probably not enough to notice.

      You can shot the 60'' bow but the 64'' would be a lot smoother for you.

      Hi,
      I presently own a Super Kodiak 60" at 45 Lbs, Within the past three months I purchased the Super Kodiak Grayling 64" at 40 LBS and Another Super Kodiak Grayling 64" at 35 LBS. All three bows are good quality and shoot good. However I really like the Super Kodiak Grayling at 64" in both 40 and 35 pounds. The Grayling offers a very smooth draw and very consistent arrow flight. I really like the Super Kodiak however my choice is the Super Kodiak Grayling, I have two custom made bows that that the Bear Super Kodiak Grayling are equal or better that the my custom bows. Additionally when I purchased my second 35 LB Grayling from 3Rivers Archery I had their technicians tune it for me and the tuned bow was outstanding. I only wish I had 3Rivers tune my 40 pound Grayling when i purchased it. Thank you and best wishes on you're choice. I have never gone wrong with all of my purchases from 3Rivers Archery..

      A:

      its up too you but I would recommend the 64". Because of your draw length the bow would first be a lot smoother and second, you would get a lot less pinch out of your finger. Plus the longer the bow, the more stable its gonna be.

  • Q:

    I have a 31" draw, so the 64" bow may work. I notice stacking at that draw length with some bows... How much weight should be added to every inch over the AMO of 28" so we can figure the total poundage for "overdraw". Also curious how long a arrow this would pull before it is maxed out?

      A:

      You should normally gain 2.5 to 3 pounds for every additional inch drawn past a rated draw length. I would say you could maybe get a 32" draw out of this 64" bow, but the 31" might be more reasonable as its limit.

  • Q:

    Are the brass quiver inserts 'AMO' spaced for a bow sight or are they located at either end of the riser? If so can AMO sight inserts be installed? And, can a stabilizer insert be installed by you?

      A:

      The "Grayling Green" Super Kodiak has bear quiver inserts (1/4" x 20) for installing a bear quiver (on either end of the riser), but no AMO sight inserts or front stabilizer bushings. We do not offer any services for installing bushings on bows. Also, installing them yourself will void the bow's warranty. You could still install them, but with the AMO sight bushings would be real close to the bear medallion. Not saying it would be in the way.... but it just might depending upon where you put the bushings.

    • A:

      The brass quiver inserts are located at either end of the riser . I would say a reputable archery dealer could install more inserts but I believe the warranty would be discarded.
