Looks very much like a Stemmler to me. I own a similar model, but with red glass.

It is my bow and I appreciate Sipsey River helping me with it. The glass is actually a deep maroon or redish brown. I have been trying to ID it for two years. The closest I have come is a Sports Manufacturer in Connecticut who were mainly a fishing rod manufacturer.

A picture of the tips on both sides is helpful.

Also a picture of the whole bow strung and unstrung, with all of the bow filling the picture but with no part of the bow cut off.

Try and take the pictures with more light as well.

How many laminations are there in the limbs?

Another shot of the emblem would help too...is it a decal or stamp?

PSE makes an impala recurve now,but not sure if they made the older impalas.

Pdiddly, I am including more pics that you ask for. I had trouble getting more light, and emblem on it is unreadable even with a magnifying glass. It appears that it had a medalion or coin stuck on it. I tried to lay paper on it and trace over it in hopes that I could invert it, but no luck. The limbs have two layers of wood and a layer of glass on each side.

Can you get a pic of that label on the limb under that cord wrap?

I checked and found it was sold by Outdoor Sports Mfg. Co. in Forestville, Conn. It might have been made by another manufacturer, such as Indian, as it looks like one.

MStyles, check the first two pics at the beginning of this thread, that might be the view you are asking about.

Pdiddly, thank you, I had heard it might be that company in Conn, but thats as far as I got and am hoping for more information on it.
