Frequently-Asked Questions

I have an old Wing bow -- can you tell me which year it was built?

Obviously, we have a great appreciation for the sentimental value of a Wing bow. Bob’s personal collection is is proudly displayed in the lobby of our Jacksonville facility. However, we can be of little help in determining the build date. The records for those bows have long since vanished, and the numbering system changed several times during Wing Archery’s duration. Occasionally, the serial number will reflect a “reverse” month and year that the bow was built. But more often, the numbers were randomized and lend very little information as to the born-on date of the bow.

Can you tell me what my Wing bow is worth?

This is another vague area. As with any “collectible”, a Wing bow is worth precisely the amount of money a buyer will pay and a seller will accept. Obviously, cosmetics and shootability factor into the amount, but we rarely offer an opinion. While there are a few models that are considered “rare”, the majority of the Wing collectibles we see today are still available in great volume.

I’ve heard that Bob Lee invented the takedown bow -- is this correct?

That is correct. Bob introduced the first detachable limb bow in 1961 with the Presentation II model, an overnight success, and a forerunner to the takedown bows on the market today.

I shoot a compound but I’m considering a traditional bow -- how do I know what draw weight I would need?

Typically, a drop down of 15 to 25 percent poundage will be comfortable.

I have an older Bob Lee that needs refinishing -- do you guys do that?

Yes, we do offer refinishing. Call us to discuss options and to let us know when you will be shipping your bow.

Can I use mechanical releases or sights with your bow?

Yes. You would need to ship the sight to us so that we can install inserts on your bow. We would also have to add a release loop to the string.
