  • 1963 kodiak special

    Hi, i have a 1963 kodiak special i am trying to sell and i have no idea of the value or what it is worth. Please help!

    Sidunlap, there are too many variables in your question to give an accurate answer. 1: Condition
    2: Draw weight
    3: Are limbs twisted
    Without seeing the bow, I would estimate in the area of below $100. But of course it also depends on how badly someone wants a 1963 Kodiak Special.

    And I am assuming that your question is pertaining to a recurve bow ! A photo might be of some help.

      I bought a factory camo kodiak from the original owner last yr for 100. It was in vvg shape....some twist. Took two tries to get the twiat out (have done dozens). Unfortunately it was like other Bears ive had.....noisy and shocky. Played w tune and it was just a bad rig
      Did get a couple of old Grizzlies to be decent. Ya just never know
      My guess is for whatever reasons the bow was a turd when new and why it was in such good shape. Think there can be quite a bit of variability in some brands/ models. That reflective of pricing....might pay top dollar for a classic clunker....or end up w a good one for cheap.

        Pricing? Check what a certain big auction site shows.

          I have a vintage '60's Grizzly and I would guess in good condition $100 to $200. I have seen them for more but don't know if that was what they sold for.

            Interesting read by Tyler Freel in the Spring edition of Outdoor Life. Tyler has gotten about everything with a rifle including Dall Rams and now he is getting ready to hunt one with a re-curve bow. He went to Colorado to work with a World renown Archery coach to fine tune his archery hunting and rid himself of any bad habits. IF he pulls this off it will be a miracle, tough enough with a gun.

              If he is successful or not in that venture, what a fantastic adventure that would be. Being strictly a recurve shooter myself, I can surely envision the difficulties of getting into a possible shooting distance at a Dall ram ! I certainly take my hat off to him for this attempt !!

                  Damn CD2, all I can say, is they don’t have what you want, then you don’t need it ! It has been some years since I bought my Brackenbury, am sure amazed at the current prices for used bows. Thanks for the post !

                      So true ! I always wanted a Black Widow, but now even the used bows are out of my financial means, but maybe if I was able to shoot more, I might give up eating for a few weeks to help afford one !

                        Got my first Black Widow new back in '87.
                        Traded a bow in (shop was BW dealer), paid some cash too, and had 50% of the money.
                        Shop ordered it and when it came in, went down and paid it off.
                        Was 2.5 hr drive, one way.

                        Price w quiver and case was 475.

                        I ate PB&J and stayed home for a long time to scrape up that money while in college.

                        Next one was again new, in 2001. Was 870 bucks IIRC.
                        Still shoot a Blackwidow, but a '91 model. Got it used for 400.

                        That cost 1/5 as much as my vehicle!

                          I'd like a new PCH, but w health issues it might just be a wall hanger so $1200 bucks seems silly.
                          Even if I had it to blow.

                          Like my old used model just fine.

                          Kid's timing chain next week, cost as much as a new Widow.
                          If I never got married and had kids I suppose there'd be all sorts of cool stuff in a cabin.

                          Oh well.

                            You might go on auction sites or some kinda hunting site that where people selling there stuff , you might be able to find what you have and can price it by what others are getting for them. You still might not get that price but it can at least give you an idea.
