Purchase my first recurve in 2007. It was a used "(1978) Fred Bear Grizzly 45#@28. I was very amazed that a 30yrs old bow was shooting so nicely. January 2010, I purchase a Fred Bear Super Kodiak #55@28. OMG, What a step up. With the fast flight string and the extra draw weight, this bow send arrows like rockets. There is no noticable drop within 20 Metres. I was invited for a black bear hunt by a hunting TV show (Québec/Canada) and smoked a bear at 15 Metres. It was a shoulder shot and managed to get a good 12" of penetration with the Stinger 4 blades broadheads. Very satisfied.

contacted Bear regarding raised check lines which rose up on outer limb in cool weather,turning color....sent it in..Bear returned it,saying no problem. When hunting season opened the next yr...same story...called them, again the same answer, don't worry about it. Two days later, while slowly drawing down on a buck..the limb exploded in my hands at (yes) the very lines I complained about in the lamination. Called and told them. In short...no satisfaction,since the warranty went out prior to the open of season. Ill deal with anyone except Bear bows from now on. It may have been 1 in 1000, but it was my one,and I didnt appreciate the runaround,especially after tellilng them a dozen bowyers had told me not to shoot it.

Comments about Bear 60" Super Kodiak Recurve:

I have been shooting compounds for 28 years and have done videos for semi live hunting shows and harvested my 110th animal this past fall. My good friend helped me decide it was time to go traditional so the wife got me a beginners bow for Christmas and by the beginning of february it was pretty much shot out. So for my bday she got me the Bear Super Kodiak and I was not disappointed. This bow is an absolute work of art, not only in looks but function as well. My groups were decent with the cheaper bow, but with the SK I am stacking arrows on top of one another and shafted one and broke another. I can not honestly give an accurate rating for durability as I've onky had it a month, but from what I am seeing that shouldn't be a concern. Can not say enough about the Super Kodiak and you will not be disappointed if you purchase it as well.

    Comments about Bear 60" Super Kodiak Recurve:

    Don't have to say much other than if you want a great great shooting hard hitting bow but do not want to spend 1000 you found it. Ill say that this shoots JUST AS GOOD as my top end custom bows. Its a pleasure to shoot and is very smooth. Ive had a problem with the riser inserts coming out but AR down at bear archery hooked me up no questions asked with a new one. FRed Bear would still be proud of this today. Get one!

        Comments about Bear 60" Super Kodiak Recurve:

        I got this bow back in august but I wanted to put it to heavy use first so I could give a honest review. I have shot no less than 200 arrows a week since I got the bow and hunted 5 days so far. I will say upfront the finish was not up to par for Bear. There is two spots on the limb tapers that were totally missed in the sanding process. They are small but still that should not leave the Bear factory, I chose to keep the bow anyway . The bow is a top notch shooting bow and draws smoother than two custom bows I've had over the years. It shoots where I look when I do my part and the grip is small which I like. It casts my cedar arrows with more authority than any bow I've owned. It was a little loud at first, After some beaver puffs and padding in the string grooves it's down to a whisper. I have been bowhunting for over 25 years, I put my bows to work and don't baby any of them, some have lasted and some didn't make it . This bow is what Bear is known for, a dependable , tough bow to get it done. It has become my primary hunting bow now, I would not hesitate to buy another. So there it is , my only complaint is the QC in the finish work.

        Comments about Bear 60" Super Kodiak Recurve:

        After careful tuning of BH . Adding puffs n buttons the trying different arrow combos I have found the following . My 60" SKGG prefers a heavy arrow ( 600 grain stix) to really quiet down . There is still residual vibration . I can live with it , but owning 11 custom bows with no aftershock has spoiled Me . I'm happy otherwise , this bow ( bubinga / grayling green is a beauty !!! The bows cast is good , it stacks in the last 3" of my 27" draw ( 60" model ). Overall a pretty good bow so far . swamp gypsy

        Comments about Bear 60" Super Kodiak Recurve:

        At one time I was a competitive archer and seen many different bows on the lines. I had shot many of the vintage SK's when folks offered them up. I always liked the look and feel, but my custom bows always out performed. With the new fast flight SK I can no longer say that. This bow shoots harder at #50 then most do at #60. I really can't say enogh about it, fast accurate and smooth. I am drawing a #55 @ 28" to 30.5" and it feels fine. Also lots of accessories available for an old platform like this. Great recurve for a great price.

          Since my Bear Super Kodiak and matched Beman ICS Bowhunter carbon arrows arrived from 3Rivers, I have been shooting this bow every day the weather permits. At first I was very sore from shooting such a powerful bow so much, not anymore,and my groupings are the best they have ever been, this bow is best bow I have ever owned -- outstanding. Hunting season opens soon, I'm really looking forward to it.

          Excellent service and fast on time delivery.
