Own the legend! For 50 years Fred Bear's ingenious Take Down recurve bow design has been a staple in the traditional archery world. Now Bear Archery reintroduces this legendary bow with their Fred Bear Take Down Recurve Limbs.

Fred Bear Recurve Limbs are constructed of Dymondwood® with black fiberglass. They feature a core lamination of Fascor. The handcrafted tips are layered with hard rock maple, and black and white fiberglass, so they are able to handle modern high performance bow strings.

Limb weight options of 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65, or 70# @ 28" draw.

Please note, these limbs do not come with a bow string. See Recurve bow strings here.

See chart for determining bow AMO length with different limb models of #1, #2, or #3. Subtract 4" for actual string length needed. Recommended brace height: A handle 7¾" - 8¾", B handle 7" - 8".

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).
