    Still have no idea about the bow. I was lucky to find this old catalog cover but still don't know what year it is or a price range for this bow. I found out the company went out of business in the 80s. Not much info around on these bows.

    Yeh, 34# at 28" 64" amo but I think it's more. Beautiful bow, nice conversation starter for sure. Give me some ideas of what would be a realistic price to pay for this bow. Sorry it's not a martin, I'll give the owner the bad news. Price range guys, thanks. Let me know if any of you are interested in the bow.

    It is an American Archery Cheetah Supreme. I say that, because I have a Cheetah Supreme recurve very similar to that, from the late '60s. I know because my dad sold them for years. I also have an American Archery All Pro Custom, named after NFL start Jerry Kramer. American Archery was a company that was bought out in late '80s by High Country and their compounds were later just absorbed into the High Country line up. The bow is from the late '60s because my dad won the Georgia state championship with two of them, one he still has and the other is the one I have.

    Actually it's not that bad for the limbs. Back in the day, people did this to keep the limbs from 'taking a set' when strung. It's probably not necessary on todays bows b/c of newer limb materials. I still store my older recurves this way.

    The most important thing to look for with these older bows is whether either or both of the limbs are twisted; something you probably won't see very well with a picture.
