View Full Version : Old bow in storage

I bought a cheetah in early 1990's. Joined the military in 1995. My bow was in storage in a dry basement til now. Can I still use this bow? Will the limbs break if I draw it in sub-zero temps. It would be a shame to get rid of it. It is in perfect condition. What if anything can I do to use this as an everyday bow.

That old I'd probably replace the string and cables and give it a try. Kept in a cool dry place I would expect too much deterioration of the limbs. Might have lost a few pounds of draw weight, but I would personally try using it. You have nothing to lose.

I'd have no qualms using it. I would wax the strings an cables thoroughly and shoot it; Barry is right about it being a good idea to replace them however.
