A BIG Thanks to Elk111(Nate) PM’ing me about a bow up for auction, I was able to snag a 1953?Dual Shelf Bear Polar off eb@y. This it to replace my ‘56 Bear Polar that broke last month. It was my favorite bow so far. I lucked out as there wasn’t any other bidders. Suppose to be here Thursday...looking forward to giving it a good clean up, strike plates ( maybe a grip)and a new string. I did buy it sight unstrung which I swore I’d never do again, but the seller had no string, and has over 1300 transactions with a perfect record. That doesn’t mean it won’t break, but his bow descriptions are reliable. I’m very patient now that I’m older, but since it’ll be here soon, the waiting is wearing on me!^<>^

The deal ain’t done ‘til the box is leaning against the front door.

I've bought several bows with no strings for them and all of them were just fine. Glad you found one to replace that old friend you lost.

My fears were unfounded.

Tell Rocky it's not for him and just unwrap it already. Take some pictures with your mini-pad so we can see it

...even has the cat checking it out! Did it get into the box? Can hardly wait for pictures of you shooting. What’s the poundage? Lance

Lance, Rocky the cat has to check everything out that enters his domain. He didn’t get into this box bc he couldn’t drag it away. The Polar is 64” 72#. It’s more longbow than recurve. I have to use a stringer with this one.

It is now officially Thursday.

It’s exactly how the seller described, nice shape. I will put new side plates and new leather wrapped grip on it. The grip reeks of cigar smoke. I haven’t strung her up yet, got to find my other striinger. So far it’s a keeper, but it’s untried at this point.

Pictures?

Chuck - Not much to see ‘til I can string it up. I’ll cut out some new strike plates and a new grip later tonight. It’s a little different than my ‘56 Polar. Getting ready for that dinner thing tonight in Joliet.
