the 54 was the first uear of the working recurve-the rarer ones have walnut risers and also the shorter ones are valuable (56")

That's a good looking bow. Why didn't the compass thing ever take off? Seems like a pretty good idea.

I agree, it's a great idea and more importantly it looks cool. :D

The compass Kodiaks are "rumored" to have issues with riser failures because of the material removed for the compass. I'd wager that it's all bullshit.

You know...I've always thought the same thing. It is hard to imagine a catastrophic crack starting from that shallow hole. The compass was located below the grip...not in the sight window or near the throat of the grip, right? Jim

Glad you brought this thread back TTT.

I'm going to look around for a bunch of small compass'. I think it's a great idea!

Here's a pic of a SUPERCLEAN compass Kodiak that's on Ebay right now.

Wow..that looks near new & with all the trimmings too. That should go pretty high.

Interesting braced profile. How does that thing shoot anyway?

I've never owned one, but maybe 4nolz has.
