1959 kodiak to the Bow Doctor

Postby manybows » Thu Jan 07, 2010 4:59 pm

Today I sent my 59 Kodiak to the Bowdoc, the master Wizard for a complete checkup. I have some before photos and when its complete I will show photos of before and after. Its a 60"er and 55lbs with a purpleheart window. When the doc gets done with her she will be a looker for sure, Don is the master and knows all the little tricks of the his trade. We are lucky to have guys Don Ward and Rich Lopez around to keep resurecting our old archery gear... Ron R.

Michael, might just want to drop him a private message (PM) here. His computer has been down for some time but he is back in the swing of things again.
