Archery bow, vintage Feline "Panther Hunter" 40# recurve bow

$160.00

IMPORTANT: We are going on vacation starting November 8, please note the shop will still be open and orders can be made however we will be increasing our processing and shipping times. All items that are not "made to order", that are ordered between Nov.8 and Nov. 20 will be shipped by Nov. 21. If you order arrows processing time will begin on Nov. 21. I will still be answering questions and responding to messages, Thank you!This vintage recurve bow is a Feline brand "Panther Hunter". It is 40# @28 inches and has an AMO of 52 inches. This bow is in good vintage condition with a few marks where a bow quiver had been placed in the past. It is really a beautiful bow with great colors and lines.
I unfortunately cannot find much information on the Feline archery company other than they began in 1959 and went out of business in the early 80's. They are from Greensburg Pennsylvania and something I read stated that a lot of their bows were made by other companies such as Blackhawk, which was another company located in Pennsylvania. This particular bow was compared to the Blackhawk Avenger in style.
The bow shoots really nice and comes equipped with a new Flemish twist string with serving and nocking point.

Please take into consideration that all of our bows are vintage, I describe them to the best of my ability and take care to report any damage or stress that may show on the bow but ultimately the buyer is responsible for the bow and knows that these vintage bows are sold as is.

Sizing details

Draw length and draw weight are the two most important things to know when ordering archery equipment.

Draw length corresponds to the arm length of the person drawing
the bow. Industry standard is 28".

A simple method of getting this number is by measuring arm span and dividing that number by 2.5.

Draw weight corresponds to how heavy the bow pulls.

The bow should not be too heavy to draw back comfortably, or too light that it doesn't offer a challenge. If you are a beginner this will be more difficult to figure out but a trip to a local archery shop or sporting goods store may help. Try different bows and talk to an expert.

If you have any more questions about these things please feel free to contact us.

Custom and personalized orders

All of the arrows in our shop are made to order, therefore any of them can be customized to suit you.

We can do a variety of colors, cresting patterns, feathers, nocks and tips.

Once a design is created you will need to pay a deposit of 20% of the total, this payment is non-refundable.
