Default Laminate came off

I was gifted a Galaxy Mars 45@28 52 inches long> It hadn't been shot in 20 years. I got a new string and started shooting it. The laminate on the top crack and started peeling off.

Can that be fixed? Cost? I'm not sure what the bow is even worth.

A picture would help, but what you are describing sounds like it cannot be fixed!!!!

Sorry, that bow is toast!!!!!

I donít know anything about that model bow, but Iíll bet itís old school and not worth much anyway.

If you still want to get into shooting trad on the cheap, go buy a Black Hunter or Samick Sage bow and jump in. Both of those are entry level, low cost bows that function just fine.

Ordered a black hunter yesterday. That Galaxy was more than 30 years old. I'm still looking for a used bow with some history.

Thanks for your help.

Probably from sitting that long is the reason the laminate popped off. Who knows what the ambient temp was where it was kept. Glad you ordered the Black Hunter. If you are like the rest of us, you'll be buying more bows. I've been addicted since I was 14 and I'm 73 and can still shoot a 60#@ 28 but I hunt with my 50# bow just because I've can drive nails with it.
