    Default 45 years old Martin 66" recurve

    I was just given a Martin 66" recurve. Its at least 45 years old. It shoots great. Missing stabalizer. Any catalogs or advice on what type stabalizer to get?

    Wow, quite a gift! Could you share a photo of your new stick? I love old recurves. At 45 y o, it most likely is a D Howatt. What weight is it? And at 66" it will be a smooth shooter. What model is it? Allmost any stabilezer will work, you'll need to try a few to see which stabilizer will balance the bow. Lucky Dog!
