    Default Old Lynx info needed

    I was given an old Lynx to get up and running.
    Can anyone give me an idea where I can get info on one of these bows?
    I will post pics tomorrow.
    Thanks a ton.

    I've got some Lynx parts, including a good set of limbs, if needed.

    Here are the pics. If anyone can give me an idea what year it might be, that would be great.
    Thank you.

    Although the riser looks the same as the one I have, cams are different, on mine they are round. Late 80's early 90's is my best guess. Friend and neighbor down in Calif. gave it to me, and am pretty sure that is when he got it. Thats quite the over draw on it! Back when guys shot tiny arrrows to get some speed!

    I would like to thank everyone that helped on this.
    After a closer look at the bow once I got it pulled apart, one of the limb bols had been replaced with a larger bolt.
    I turned it about half a turn and the whole limb poped off, the threads in the hole had stripped out. the bow is just a wall hanger, once I got it put back togeather,loosely.

    That is a shame. The cams are either sonic or supersonic wheels, puts it around '92 time frame.

    The lynx was also a smooth shooting bow. It was my first brand new bow back in 1989. That grip was cast perfectly for my hand.
