A long time ago, I was very keen on archery (from 9 to 17 years of age) and the last bow I used was this one.
It is a Kings of Kelso 'Popular' 36lb draw at 28"
Time has gone by and I now find the bow has been in the attic for 40 years
I have strung it and drawn it OK, but my question is (see you knew I would get there eventually) will it withstand repeated use? If I sell it to someone, say on eBay, is it going to snap like a twig the first time its used in anger(or even the tenth time)

Dave was repairing the wiki but I think things got in the way?? If the bow does not have any obvious separations, cracks etc. on the limbs it is probably safe to shoot (with a dacron string). and yes if you want rid of it it would go nicely in my collection or alternatively ebay it
