    How does everyone like Bear Archery products? I want to get a bow here soon and these look rather nice. I also have never had a bad primos endorsed product. Tell me what you think.

    I absolutely love my Instinct! The draw is very smooth, it shoots well, and has virtually no vibration. In fact, my groups opened up when I added a stabilizer.

    I have a TRX300, that I shoot once in awhile. I like it quite a bit but don't have much to compare it too. Its as accurate as I am, and came with a decent amount of accessories for the price.

    I own an old Bear single cam handed down from my father... Don't even know the model name actually... The finish on that thing has long been gone (Although, I guess I could look on the plate and see what it says). I have gone through a good 15 sets of strings on it and it still puts them in the ten ring at forty yards...

    My dad has two, both made in the sixties or seventies. They're both amazing.

    Bear products down through time and through the catalog for 08 all run the gamut from ok to great.
    It really depends on the individual bow, if you're looking at used.

    Generally, Bear has a solid reputation.

    Bear Archery Products

    I have been a dealer for the Bear Archery products and their sister line Jennings Archery.

    Both are great shooting bow lines. With their purchase by Escalade Sports a few years ago, we've seen a lot of new designs put into the product lines. If anyone has any specific questions on these bows feel free to contact me.
