      Short answer, NO.
      Highly NOT recommended, unless you brace the bow very low and even then over time, the bow will most likely break.The design of the bow is 28-29 inches of draw.
      Mostly this is due to design and materials, as english longbows bow strength comes from the overall length of the bow.
      The wood here just cannot handle the strain, as this is hickory backing not yew.

      No, it is recommended not to be drawn past the rated draw length of 28".

  • Q:

    Can this be used to hunt? If yes then what type of game?

      A:

      Any bow that is of proper bow weight (see local regulations) can be used for hunting. As this English Longbow is so long, I am not sure it will be the best for hunting in the woods, depends upon how much brush you have. Maybe for small game, not sure if good enough for big game.

      A:

      That is for you to string the bow.

      Dear Sir,
      To simply tell you which end of the bow is the top and the bottom.
      Two notches is the top of the bow.
      This makes a difference when you string the bow as the string loops are different size.
      The large loop goes to the top when you string the bow.
      After you have strung the bow it will look more obvious as the top end of the bow is longer than the bottom.
      Make sure you use a proper stringer that will not put too much force on the horn tips.
      The tips on this bow are not as fragile as other traditional english longbows.

      A:

      The topmost is for the bow stringer.  The actual string slides into the lower notch from the bow body when you string it.   If you only had one notch you would be putting the bow string on over the stringer (problematic at best).  This applies to normal double loop stringers.

  • Q:

    This question refers to a tri laminate bow I got that I have to laminate. It is ipe backed with bamboo and bellied with hickory. How should I take care of it when built? How will it act in high humidity? Thanks for answers!

      A:

      I would recommend sealing the bow. Either a spray on polyurethane or even some oil based stain will help to keep the moisture out.

      Answered on 12/31/2012 by Justin from 3Rivers Archery
    • A:

      Keep the bow in a cool and dry (above 40% humidity) location, just like you would store an type of self bow. I agree with Justin to seal the bow. I use rawhide backing for the front end, the rest can be sealed with a "light" coat of polyurethane. I use waterproof stain to give the wood a slightly darker color for age.

  • Q:

    Other than the hickory backing, what is this bow made of? Who is the manufacturer?
    Asked on 12/5/2012 by Apache Arrow from Carlsbad, NM

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      The bow is two pieces of hickory with an ipe core.

      Answered on 12/6/2012 by Justin from 3Rivers Archery
    • A:

      The bow is made of Ipe, Bamboo, and Hickory (IBH bow coded).
      The back is made of Hickory.
      The belly of Ipe.
      I own this bow, and have the manufacturer signature with draw length and weight, but it does not show the maker. It is NOT Flagella Dei, as his bows are specific in design with a wider grip.
