    This week I won an auction for what seems to me to be an unusual example of a Gordon Plastics recurve. If you're not familiar with Gordon, they were located in San Diego and throughout the 60's manufactured laminates for their own line of bow (The Royal Line) and supplied material for other...

    I have a couple of warfs but I'm not sure if Bob did the cconversion. I'm sure the difference is evident. Any pics out there of a Proline and or Jennings? Thanks. Steve
