Being one of the most respected and innovative manufacturers in the entire industry, Bear Archery‘s Grizzly simply can’t disappoint you. Granted, it’s not a bow for everyone, what with the relatively steep price. There are reasons why it costs so much though, and I’m going to go through them in this review. Actually, let me just save you some time and say this right now: if you have the funds for it, buy it. Plain and simple. OK, I really had to say that. Now, let me explain why I said it.

The Working Man’s Bear Grizzly Recurve Bow

This title above wasn’t just made up – it is actually what the Bear Grizzly is referred to within the archery community. The bow has one of the finest custom-crafted limbs and riser ever made, and northern hardwood is what they are made from. So if you’re worried that the limbs might twist on you for some reason, you can feel perfectly safe that with this particular bow it is NOT going to happen unless you seriously mistreat the bow.
