    Default Can anyone identify this bow?

    CIMG7701.JPGCIMG7700.JPGCIMG7698.JPGCIMG7697.JPGCIMG7696.JPGFriend from work asked me to see if I can get his old Martin bow up and running again. If I knew what it was, I could probably get the specs. As it sits, with the old string: A-A 46-3/4", Brace height 9.5", string 38-3/4", Wood limbs, metal riser. Limb markings: CLX 99367-LT. Cams are 1-3/4" diameter. On bottom limb is "Licensed under Allen" above the patent #. Any help would be appreciated. See next post for further pics.

    Thats ah sweet bow!! Back in the day it was the bow to have. When I was just getting into archery all the guys I shot with shot Couger II's and Worthogs. I couldnt afford one so I got the hand me downs........................Couger II's shot great!! To me when I think of Martin thats the one that comes to mind.

    It's not really too far fetched...back in the 80's and 90's there were tons of models with UN-Martin like names that were custom label projects for individual dealers.
