The year was 1952. The average house cost $9,050. A gallon of gas was 20 cents. And Bear Archery introduced their 1952 Kodiak Static Tip Recurve Bow!
There are a lot of reasons to long for the "good old days." And the Bear Static K-4 is at the top of the list! Based on that classic 1952 design, the Static K-4 features a slim longbow profile with recurve static tips that hold their shape as you draw. A static tip can really shoot an arrow with authority, and are quieter than a standard recurve limb tip.
For style and smoothness, this bow can't be beat. Features hand-shaped brush nocks and tips, a satin finish, as well as near center-shot design.
Radiused, cut-before-center shelf. Solid Bubinga and capped with Bolivian Rosewood. Includes a retro style leather arrow rest and plate that will remind you of classic 1950s Bear Archery bows. A leather grip is installed (not shown).
Maple core with caramel colored fiberglass on the belly, and backed with brown fiberglass. Tips are backed with black and white fiberglass with a Maple accent. Brush nocks are made from layered Maple and Bubinga.
Flemish twist Dacron bow string. Not recommend to use string material other than Dacron.
Available in Right handed in pull weights of 35#, 40#, 45#, 50# or 55# @ 28" draw, or Left handed in pull weights of 40#, 45#, or 50# @ 28" draw. Please specify.
Choose from a left or right hand bow (choose based on what hand you Draw the bow string with), and bow weight at a 28" draw length. Remember that with a traditional bow the weight will change depending upon what your draw length is. Bow weight will change approximately ±2½ pounds for every inch from a bows rated draw length. So a bow rated 45# @ 28" bow is roughly a 42½# @ 27" or 47½# @ 29". Draw weight is marked at the nearest 5# increment to actual weight, (2#'s under and 3#'s over). This is an industry wide standard.
Bow stringer not included.
A bow stringer is recommended for stringing any recurve bow or longbow. Stringing a bow without a bow stringer, or stringing it backwards will void a bow's warranty. Click here to see our Bow Stringers.
It is recommended to unstring your bow if you do not plan to be shooting more than week. Store your bow on its side, or hanging vertically from a peg. Never rest the bow on the lower tip for extended periods of time. Never dry fire the bow (shooting without an arrow).
