      A:

      It depends upon your draw length. You can view the spine charts to help you decide or call one of our techs to help. http://www.3riversarchery.com/pdf/ArrowCharts.pdf

      A:

      Spine weight should usually equal or exceed the draw weight of a bow, so 55" should work well. I would choose 125 grain points for better balance. Why not try the TopHat 9031-1 screw-on medieval points for a a really cool look with this bow?

      It is a D shape and it is a laminated bow. I have it and it is a good bow
      only thing that could improve it is a better handle wrap but nothing that
      someone who got the bow could do themselves. Overall it's a great bow.

      Fellow Shopper,
      The Hawkwood bow does indeed have a "D" shape. And yes, it is a laminate of red oak, backed with hickory. While this is a compromise (real medieval longbows were usually made from a single stave), the Hawkwood looks great and handles well. I had mine out today, and shot better with it than with my modern bow.

      D-shape. Yes on the laminate - it's red oak and hickory.

      A:

      Marcelo,
      The Hawkwood longbow is oak backed with hickory. These are not woods used historically in England, and backed bows are not period correct for the middle ages. Otherwise, the bow is a good modern compromise for the English longbow in appearance and the way it shoots. I am not familiar with the IFAA, so I can't comment on that part of your question.

  • Q:

    Can this bow handle cold weather, like 10-30 degrees farenheit? What kind of precautions would I have to take? Is it as simple as giving it a few pulls to half draw to warm it before heading out into the woods? I understand from my research on building self bows that high temperatures and low humidity greatly affect wooden bows. I'm not sure if cold Wisconsin winters count as low humidity scenarios or not.

      A:

      You can use this bow in cold weather and you are correct to do a few half pulls to "warm it up" although when it is colder out the bow may add a few lbs. to its draw weight.

  • Q:

    What does it come with other than the bow itself. I might not get it if I don't even get finger tabs with it.
    Asked on 7/18/2013 by Bjorn from St. Louis, MO

      A:

      Just the bow and bowstring (and stringer)...
      And I didn't like the bowstring (it didn't have a center serving which protects the string and lets the arrows grip better). It also had a a cheap vinyl grip (which I replaced with a nice leather one sold by 3Rivers Archery).
      HOWEVER, once I replaced these things, the bow became absolutely wonderful! (Even without my additions, the bow is well worth the money for what you get!). Honestly, you're better off without a finger tab anyway (my opinion :). I much prefer a three-fingered string glove (which yes, you would also have to buy separately... As well as an arm guard for your bow wrist and some kind of glove for your bow hand - I just use a leather garden glove for that hand; without it, the top of your bow hand would get ripped up from your arrow fletchings - same as with any English longbow).
      Sorry, I know this all probably sounds a bit overwhelming, but I just wanted to be straight up with you about it. Note, however, that you would have to buy all this stuff for ANY English longbow. After you have it all, though, it's nothing but a blast! (It's just like with any hobby: there is just stuff you've gotta buy to get started. Once you have it though, you're good to go for a while!) So, yes, this bow really is totally worth your money!!

      Bjorn,
      The bow comes with a string, and that's it. Extra strings are available as an add-on, and I suggest you order one with the bow. Any other gear is your responsibility. Except for children's bows, you are rarely going to get any accessories like tabs. That makes sense, since these are very personal items.

  • Q:

    My longbow has what seems to be a clear sealer applied to the wood. No instructions came with the bow, so my questions are these.
    Do I need to add another coat of sealer? If so what kind ?
    Secondly. Where I live, it is hot in the summer, humid when the monsoon comes and cold in the winter with some snowfall.
    I wouldn't be shooting in the rain or while it is snowing. So what if any preparation should be done prior to shooting ? Temperature and humidity extremes exist here.

      A:

      Friends,
      The correct string is #8581 @ $14.99. The listing is found on page 112 of Catalog #28, just below the listing for the bow itself. I ordered an extra, and prefer to use the recommended string. My string measures 63", and any double-loop longbow string of that length made with B-50 Dacron should work. I do not recommend a string made with Fast Flight material.

      I would recommend getting a B-50 to replace the one it comes with.

  • Q:

    I am a little confused. Earlier in the thread, it was stated that this bow would work for a person 7ft tall with a 33" draw length. Later in the thread, it is stated that this bow shouldn't be drawn much past 28". I draw at 31" and I am wondering if this bow would work for me. Thanks.

      A:

      You can pull this bow back farther than 28", but the farther you pull it back the more stress will be put on the limbs. This type of bow is more primitive, meaning that they do not use fiberglass or other modern materials. This type of bow will lose weight over time and drawing the bow back farther than 28" will speed up that process.
