  1. I bought a 55lb Bear Grizzly over a month ago, and it the best thing i got my self in the last ten years. Never really shot a bow other then the youth bow i got 5 years ago for my cousins kids. I'm already looking into getting other bows for the family. Right now just practicing while planning for next years hunting seasons.
    Got a question, and this is what i was looking around for when i found your video. for my 55lb 58" Bear Grizzly recurve if i need to get a new string, and i'm sure i maybe needing one beginning next year. I guess a dacron string howmany strands should it be for that draw weight and length?
    P.S. about the time i got the bow i was suffering from the side effects from cholesterol meds, and i had to force my self to shoot over the joint pains, but today I've got my meds changed and i'm feel much better. I try to get about 50 arrows shot everday that the weather is fair..
    Best to you Davy!
