Anyone have any experience with them?

I had one many years ago, when I was in my late teens. I think it was just a 45# pull. I missed a lot of deer with it, but it wasn’t the fault of the excellent bow.

Good bows and shoot well, I just shot the Kodiak Magnum a little better in shooting them at our range otherwise I probably would have bought the Grizzly.

That has been my experience as well. The Grizzly, being shorter, might be more handy in a tree or in a blind. That extra few inches in length in the Kodiak Magnum seems to help the shootability IMO. I have an old Grizzly that belonged to my father. I also have a Kodiak Magnum "Black Beauty". I love shooting both but the Black Beauty I shoot better.

Kodiak is the larger 60 inch AMO bow about the length the OP has. The Kodiak Magnum is a short one at 52 inch AMO which makes it very handy in the woods. It also is not as comfortable at my draw length with finger pinch but on it I shoot 2 under which that relieves that some. What I like most about the Kodiak magnum is the grip and its handiness in the woods or blind. Heck it is about the length of my first compound.

I have 5 Kodiak Magnums and 4 Kodiaks all made in Grayling. I like the Magnums for bowfishing and the regular Kodiaks for general hunting. My Grizzly's are the best for me for large game. I have 2 of them.

I’m a short guy @ 5’6 so a short bow is gonna fit me better.

The Kodiak magnum is not available in left handed or that would have been one I looked hard at.

My current bow is 62” AMO and it’s too long. Gonna order short limbs for it to bring it down to 60” but I have high hopes for this 58” grizz

That may be a little too short. Only have a 40# in stock

Have had the Grizzly for about 2 weeks now. I’m liking it a lot and I shoot it well.

I’ve put the satori up and it’s for sale.

I should have gone with the Grizzly from the get go

Got my 45# Grizzly back in 1970 and still have it. Went and dug it out and as soon my shoulder heals enough I will start shooting it again. New string and arrows and I will be good to go. Thanks for reminding me about it and enjoy yours.

Glad to hear your Grizzly is working out for you, they're nice bows. I have a handful of Bear bow models with my favorite being a '59 Kodiak reissue. Bear has a number of interesting updates for their 2022 catalog (the Kodiak is going to come in Grayling Green, "B" size Mag Riser finally, re-release of the Kodiak Hunter, etc).
