I picked up 3 recurves from a estate this week, after close inspection 2 are bear grizzly's from the 60's the third wasn't recognizable. someone covered them in duck tape from tip to tip and many years later peeled it off. I am left with the dry duct tape residue. I tried many solutions wd40 ,goof off etc. , my best result was with pb blaster and my wifes credit card. now I can see I have a 45# Black Hawk Short Hornet. before I move on to the others does anyone have any better solutions that will not damage the ol bears. thank you very much.
