Like its namesake the Rio Bravo river, the Rio-Bravo B-Model 1-piece recurve bow is beautiful in a wild way. Grain patterns galore! Bacote, as only Great Plains can do it. No two bows will look alike. The B-Model 1-piece recurve is designed with an arched beam in the handle and an arched grip section for positive hand placement shot after shot and a real "point-and-shoot shooting experience". The riser of this bow is 19" long with a relieved radius shelf and rolled back window which gives the archer perfect arrow clearance and flight. A true "work of art."

Choose from a left or right hand bow (choose based on what hand you Draw the bow string with), and bow weight at a 28" draw length. Remember that with a traditional bow the weight will change depending upon what your draw length is. Bow weight will change approximately ±2½ pounds for every inch from a bows rated draw length. So a bow rated 45# @ 28" bow is roughly a 42½# @ 27" or 48½# @ 29". Draw weight is marked at the nearest 5# increment to actual weight, (2#'s under and 3#'s over). This is an industry wide standard. Bow stringer not included. A bow stringer is recommended for stringing any recurve bow or longbow. Stringing a bow without a bow stringer, or stringing it backwards will void a bow's warranty.

Never rest the bow on the lower tip for extended periods of time. Never dry fire the bow (shooting without an arrow). 3RIVERS SERVICE: Bow Set-up Read about Longbow & Recurve Set-up
