About The Bear Archery Grizzly Recurve Bow
The Bear Grizzly is designed for big performance and comes with the following features.
Fred Bear, the founder of Bear Archery, introduced a manufacturing process that gives enhanced physical properties to the wood in the handle section of a Grizzly. A pressurized vacuum process fills all the natural pores in the wood, making it heavier and much stronger. After baking, the handle is no longer just natural wood, but Futurewood. Futurewood means that the handle will never warp or crack. At the same time, all the grain and original beauty of the natural hardwood are still there to delight the owner.
Futurewood mimics natural wood by not having uniform shading throughout. Light areas appear during the filling in of the pores where the pores are closest together and filter out a little of the injected material. These light areas are called birthmarks and ensure that your Grizzly will have unique markings.
This bow is not called the “Grizzly” for nothing. Its lack of vibrations and noise makes it quite easy to sneak up on your prey and easily take down bear and elk. The Grizzly’s built-in precision and reliability mean you will rarely miss a shot. However, there is one thing to pay attention to – you want a Grizzly with a draw minimum of at least 40 lbs. so that your arrow will have enough energy to pierce your target. The Grizzly is durable and weather resistant so you can take it out to the woods in rain or snow.
Inexperienced archers say that the bow has improved their shooting abilities. Users notice a big improvement in arrow grouping (how close together the arrows are after being shot) and accuracy.
