'69 drilled Grizz

Postby Hookeye » Sat Jul 09, 2011 11:39 am

Patched the sight holes in the face, couldn't make a perfect color match on the two small spots and there were some slight marks in the glass (still in VVG shape, no stress marks, just been used a little). So said screw it and went old school camo, just the glass (both sides).

Came out kinda cool.

Less shocky than the 3 other Grizzlies I've had (others 58", this a 56"). But it too had the limb resonance noise. Shame.
Put some PSE Vibrachecks on it, barely fit due to the bow having thinner limbs, made it nice and quiet though- killed the look (although some might find the camo job to have done worse).

Looks good to me. Whatever it takes to put new life (and use) in those oldies. ;) Enjoy!
