Wow. Unique is the right word. Look how far back the handle is... 4-5" ? :shock:

Yep that riser is radical as hell. It's just 60" AMO too which is just off the charts unique. The wood patterns are unlike any other Tamerlanes known.

Really a great piece.

What makes this guy think it's a Tamerlane?

Well it looks more like a Tamerlane than any other model, just much shorter with a radically arched riser. I wonder if it has a "Tamerlane" silkscreen on it? Here's a '63 Tamerlane to compare.

I wonder if it is in fact a Bear at all. If it has no marking on it other than the draw secifications, what is this guy going on to say that it is a Bear. The limb tips don't look like most of the Bears from the period I have seen, but granted, I am not a Bear expert.

That looks very similar to a Tamerlane a guy at the club I belong to has. Sweet shooter his is 62 or 64" if I remember right. That looks cool. Wish I had the cash for it. I like oddball stuff.

Definitely a Bear. Some guy over on Tradgang several months ago got ahold of a bunch of Bear prototypes designed by Bill Stewart. This bow isn't one of that lot but it wouldn't surprise me if it was another one by Bill Stewart.
