I bought this bow as an introduction to Bear archery. Never owned one. Have owned a bunch of custom trad bows, and liked some customs better than others, but here's the VERY painful fact; The Bear Grizzly shoots as good, and mostly better, than all of my trad recurves i've owned. this bow costs 1/2 of what the customs were. for 1/2 of the price of upper end bows, you can have one that shoots as good or better. The finish is gorgeous. some don't like dymondwood risers. I prefer them for stability, weight and durability. the red dymandwood is very rich looking. the grip and design is what really got my attention. very unique for a company bow. very functional and comfortable. very powerful and the draw is a dream. Ive only owned this bow for about a month so Im hoping it is as durable as it is shootable. it is as accurate as you can shoot it. But one thing is for sure.....if this is what Bear Traditional is making these days....I just don't need a custom bowyer. ....its that nice.... kudos bear and 3 rivers.....a great combo.

Did not like the back side of the grip

The bow itself is a beauty, but I did not like the backside of the grip. It did not conform to the palm of my hand comfortably. It is squared off and awkward, no matter how high or low I grasped it.

    Comments about Bear 58" Grizzly Recurve:

    I started out shooting an old custom made bush master longbow at 45 pounds and my friend's samick sage 45 pound recurve. Both shot really well, then I received the bear grizzley 45 pounds from three rivers with Navajo senders and brush buttons, braced at 8 1/2 and it shoots so well. My groupings are way tighter than before, the draw is way smoother and the release is scary silent. Three rivers really hooked it up for me. God willing this bow will harvest many whitetail and turkey for me and my family. Thanks a lot Three Rivers and Bear Archery for your commitment to excellence.

      Comments about Bear 58" Grizzly Recurve:

      I saw a lot of comments online about people having trouble tuning this bow. Don't give up. The sweet spot for the brace height is 8" on my bow. 1/16" up or down and it get's louder or vibrates. Same with the nock height. It's gotta be right on. Once it's dialed though it's a sweet bow. Super smooth and very quiet!

          Been shooting a Grizzly for a few years, and decided to buy a new one with a heavier draw. This bow shot better right out of the box than my old one ever did. Love it.

          Comments about Bear 58" Grizzly Recurve:

          I'm just a kid and I mostly walk around in the woods, stump shooting. This bow is well built, and accurate. I got it in 45 lbs, and it is surprisingly good for long range, great for wooded areas. The 1 thing I dislike in this bow is the weight. It is heavy for a recurve.

            Comments about Bear 58" Grizzly Recurve:

            My second recurve bow. Got into traditional archery about three months ago. Always wanted to give it a try and finally broke down and got a PSE 30# recurve bow, some arrows & targets for the backyard. It was a great starter bow, but this Grizzly was the right upgrade for me.
            Bear cuts no corners in their craftsmanship. My 40# Grizzly is a beautiful work of art. Shooting at the local range, many compound shooters have commented on the look of my bow.
            So much fun to shoot, I love the feel of the smooth draw. The energy caused by the release is so evenly spread throughout the riser and limbs, it makes any shock to the bow-hand so minimal I feel like I'm still shooting my 30#.
            The Flemish-twist bow string had to be twisted A LOT before I got my brace height to where Bear recommends. Shoot-measure-twist.....repeat...took about an hour. But, my "twang" turned into a "zip" sound. And arrows consistently hit their mark.
            Stop shopping now, this the recurve bow you want. Five Stars, easily.

                  I bought the Grizzly for myself after Christmas and love it. I formerly shot compound instinctively and decided to get a proper bow for my shooting style. I should mention that I'm fifteen and pull to 27". Since I shot a 45# compound I got a 45# Grizzly, that probably wasn't a good decision. After a few months shooting it as often as possible, my muscles are completely able to handle this bow. It draws smoothly, shoots straight, and feels amazing. I make tight groupings and cannot put this bow down. If anyone is on the fence about it, I recommend they buy it.

                    I've had this bow for about a month and still can't put it down. I've alternated between shooting paper targets indoors and outdoor hunting ranges. It seems to shoot 3 fingers under just as happily as split finger and it's certainly a better shot than I am. My only complaints are the wood limb tips mean it can't be used with a fast-flight string and the flemish twist included with the bow seems to be a low quality according to people who know more than I do hahaha.
