This is the 1965 Bear Grizzly. New hair rest, side plate and string. Waiting on nocks to be delivered tomorrow. Then to start flinging some arrows.

I agree but that would be assuming he has some serving on hand . . .

I prefer to use brass nocks myself, but that has a lot to do with poor tying ability and when I am tuning my arrows it is a lot easier to snug one down until final nock height is dialed in. Then instead of trying to get someone to tie a knot at the exact nock height I just crimp the nock.

Itís all personal preference, but Iíll never use a metal nocking point again!

I still have it. I have a new string on the way for it. The first one was a tad long.
