Proline built recurves for Shakespeare during the 1960’s through the mid 1970’s, and later compounds and accessories though the 1990s. Proline was acquired by Darton Archery in the late 1990s. They have since tried to re-establish themselves once or twice since Darton owned the brand, and the last incarnation was in 2002. Shakespeare made some modifications to the Proline, and it is unknown how much influence Ernie Root had on the designs. Proline continued while Shakespeare Archery division closed down. At first both the Shakespeare and the Proline company logos appeared on the bows. Eventually an “S” appeared before “Proline”. Most of the Shakespeare Proline Birds of Prey models still around today are of the S-Proline vintage. Proline stopped making recurves in the late 1970’s and turned its interest to the compound bow market.
This Shakespeare Archery Recurve Bow is markedly the perfect asset to any collection!
