Does anyone have any pics they can share of bows with Caramel Gordon glass? Also, any riser wood recommendations for caramel glass?

Bear's 59er has/had it.. .Beautiful glass. To me in the right shade it looks very natural like bamboo . Wish it was utilized more.....I'm sure many have some good pictures and will share......Best with your quest Todd ;)

...one of my all time favorite Recurves . My 59 Grizzly .

Love every aspect of this bow design and wood/glass combinations used! She has a beautiful olive green glass back and dark caramel belly. The mix of light/dark in this beautiful Riser is stunning to my eyes. I could see a Montana with these things incorporated ;^)

Jay that is a gorgeous bow!! I had a 59 kodiak once and loved the caramel glass color also!!! I’d like a ASL longbow in it someday.

...not just a pretty bow. I took her out two yrs back for a good stretch of the limbs. Day one . She performed perfectly on her 60th birth year ;)

Looking forward to seeing more Bows with Caramel glass incorporated into the design/build. Beautiful glass....

Well, shes a beauty left or right ;)

Back in the 60's, all manufactured bows had glossy finishes. If you wanted matte/semi gloss, you took steel wool to them. Mostly it didn't bother us, we just put limb covers on them for hunting and still killed deer. The choices we have today are not what we had back then.

The 59 and 60 Shakespeare bows had gorgeous caramel colored glass.

Here are a couple of pictures of my Northern Mist American. It's also a takedown. It has the caramel glass on the belly with walnut Dymonwood handle.

Thanks Ralph! And thank you guys for posting!!!!! Wow, what a turnout!!! So, what is your guys opinion on caramel glass with a black Micarta riser? I love the weight of Micarta but unsure of the look of the combo.

Ralph, it’s nice to see the photo galley pics of your Grizzly. But the one in its natural habitat is a better picture.

..Todd, until someone has some pics of Black micarta & caramel glass ;)

The micarta kinda (from a distance;) looks in shade a lot like dymondwood and other woods in shade=blackish/charcoal/wenge . I think that woods like Bear's maple core really makes that dark riser pop. Just me ...I really lke it ! So one would think that a blend with a Dark riser and caramel glass would do the same. Jays kodiak pretty much shows that....

The lighting and angle play games with a phone picture. The tint can look much different on a digital picture. It’s hard to show the exact tone

Back glass on a bow I call " Mystery" because I don't know who made it. This is woven glass but bet it was made by Gordon.
