Fred Bear designed the Super Mag in 1966 for the bowhunter who travels in the brush and those who hunt from treestands. The Bear Super Mag is a compact 48" hunting bow that delivers serious performance. Easy to maneuver in any bow hunting condition and hard hitting on big game. Not recommended for draw lengths over 28" as you will experience stacking (feels like hitting a wall when drawing past a certain length) and serious finger pinch (hurts your accuracy and fingers).

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). 3RIVERS SERVICE: Bow Set-up Click here for Bear Archery Traditional Bow Owner's Manual Read about Longbow & Recurve Set-up
