Does there really need to be a review of these limbs? Anyone that knows about Fred Bear Custom TD understands. It has been said that the Grayling bows are the best, I have both. The new limbs are as good and better than the old ones. The new limbs are also "Fast Flight" compatible which is a big plus.

I ordered the 52# limbs for a 1970's "A" size Magnesium riser. They arrived fast and fit perfect. I chronograph all my bows and these limbs are on par with any of the top name custom bows in the speed department. The finish on the black glass is below average. I guess to be completely honest they have the most flaws in the finish that I have scene on any limb from a top of the line US bow producer.

Bear and company - step it up on your finish details and try some clear glass over Tonkin Cain for a new look. You will step up in performance and your bad finish work won't show so much on glass that's not black.

All that said, I like my limbs, but think evaluations should be honest and accurate to be helpful.

    Comments about Bear Takedown Recurve Limbs:

    I have no complaints with the Bear TD limbs. I prefer the matte black finish over the gloss finish they used years ago. They are not real fancy but for the price they offer a good solid limb at a reasonable price. As far as speed goes, I have never chronographed them but they seem satisfactory to me. I judge a bow more on how smooth it draws and how quiet it shoots over how fast it will shoot an arrow. I am also very grateful that Bear offered these in the #3 version-my personal favorite.

    Comments about Bear Takedown Recurve Limbs:

    I will use these limbs for field and 3D Competition 40lbs 64 inches in a early Bear magnesium B handle. Fit into the handle was perfect and it was very easy to get quite.Speed and smoothness of the shot are excellent. The finish is not so great.White lines run up and down both limbs right out of the box.After several hundred shots these have not appeared to have gotten worse.I hope their durability will be good and that it is strictly a finish flaw because the performance is very very good.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Shipping was excellent;arrived in three days from ordering.Product was exactly what I ordered and was right on the money for draw weight and length.

    Comments about Bear Takedown Recurve Limbs:

    These limbs fit looser in the riser than the original ones that came with the bow (circa 1980). Also dissappointed with the shipping, the limbs were just thrown in an unprotected non-factory box, rattled around and got nicked up.My guess is that I got somebody's return.

      Recieved a new set of 45lb and 55lb Diamond wood limbs. The 45's are #1 and the 55's are #3. They fit great and perform great. Both have long silver lines in the finish. Other bowyers have found a way to finish black limbs without silver streaks Bear can to.

          Comments about Bear Takedown Recurve Limbs:

          I ordered the 37# limbs for a 1970's "A" size Magnesium riser. They arrived fast and fit perfect. I chronograph all my bows and these limbs are on par with any of the top name custom bows in the speed department. They shoot a 500gr arrow at the same speed as two 40lb custom recurves we have from two different bowyers. The finish on the black glass is a nice matt. I now own a set of 37# and 52#, both sets show crazing lines in the finish after a few sessions at the range. Sometimes being overdrawn is blamed for these lines to appear but neither my wife or I have a long draw at 26" and 27". I am told this crazing (stress lines that appear running across the limbs) is harmless and seems to have no negative effect on performance. Many vintage Bear bows have these lines and have been shot that way since the 60's or longer.

            Looking forward to re-ordering The Bear limbs. I love my 65 lbs. limbs and will order a 50lbs. set.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Waited Seven months for the Bear limbs, and when they arrived they were the wrong limbs. I sent them back and was given a refund. I will have to re-order , but will wait until Bear archery catches up on its back logged orders. Not 3R's fault about the long wait.
