It's 62" & 44# @ 28" - haven't scaled or clocked her yet (tomorrow) but she shoots pretty nice.

Jett,

That's a beauty for sure. It looks like it's in excellent condition. Congratulations on the find.

No, it's all original. Still haven't scaled it but it was shooting in the 140's @ 27". I'll probably get a little better #'s when I replace the 14 strand string with a 12 & a little bit of dickering.

beautiful Griz i got a new 50lb Griz last yr and absolutely love it !!! some months ago i got to shoot a old Griz while at the range and was absolutely surprised in the lack of performance difference between the two bow (twins), it was as if i didn't put my bow down but it was totally awesome to get to shoot a historical icon such as that.

What brace height are you set at? The pictures makes it look pretty deep.

I generally run the brace height on the old Bears pretty high (usually 8 to 9"). Not sure what I have on this bow, but I'm sure it's higher than the "recommended" brace height. I'm going to replace most of my strings on my vintage bows with the "new" B-55 which has resulted in a lower brace (and better overall performance) on the one bow I've strung with it.

Most of the "old" Grizzlys,up to about `63, which is all of the 62" bows, seem to prefer the brace in the 7 1/2-8" range. Of course later than that they prefer the standard Bear brace heifgt of 8-8 1/2" range The lower brace on the older ones results in an extremely quiet ,smooth shooter.

I'll check it out - up to my butt in alligators right now - but I'll let you know what I end up with.
