  • Q:

    how much weight can be added to the draw weight using this as a backing?
    Asked on 5/21/2014 by laddybowyer from michigan

    • A:

      I use bamboo a lot as a backing and have learned so much from this wonderful material. With a natural crown down the center this adds mass to your bow. The most important thing I have learned with bamboo is to make sure it is evenly thin from end to end about 1/8 of an inch thick. Anything more will overpower your core. I have backed a used bow and a 1/8 inch bamboo backing added 10 extra pounds of weight. My advice is to glue on your bamboo using the "Perry Reflex" method. This will maximize your bamboo. Hope this helps

    • A:

      The piece can add up to ten pounds. You must get the strip as thin as possible. You will need to do more work to your planed strip or you will over power your core wood.

      A:

      I would not advise any one doing this to their Bear Montana. You are turning a good bow into a psc of junk and more than likley ruin it.

  • Q:

    Can I form the bamboo into a bow shape using water and have it retain its shape over time?
    Will heat take the shape out of it after it is shaped?
    What is the variation in thickness from one end to another?
    Asked on 8/22/2011 by Anonymous from Woodruff, SC

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      The best way to form the bamboo in to the shape of the bow is to glue the bamboo onto your core wood and then bend it to shape with your form. These strips of bamboo may vary in thickness by a few thousandths of an inch.
