Anyone have an Archabold OH made. HIT recurve. I guess the guy who made them moved to Florida. . I know of only one more HIT bow and the owner thinks there pretty rare. My Grandpa just gave me one he had in the attic. It looks like its out of the late 60's. I just dont want to shoot it if its really old, although the glass is in really good shape and no stress marks on it. Any info would be really appreciated.

Hey there Lunker,

Go to Gander in Toledo and ask for Mike Hogan, he knows everyhting about this area's archery history and is the man! He may be able to tell you who that guy is and where he is today. He is an old neighbor of mine and like I said really knows it all. He works in the archery department at Gander Mountain in Toledo. If you want me to, I will ask him for you .
