      A:

      I would suggest over lapping the rawhide a small amount and then wrap the handle.

      A:

      I overlapped the rawhide 1inch in the center ,,, it's up to you how much you would like as well. You can wrap a handle around to hide the overlapped part. Take noticed the smooth side of the rawhide, you want that facing up and the rough contacting the glue.

  • Q:

    I have a premade hickory bow purchased from ebay. I think I understand how to apply the rawhide.Do you overlap in the middle or meet the 2 pieces flush? Will I have to alter my bow after applying the raw hide or just finish and use? Also what would I use to protect the belly of the bow? Can I use rawhide the same way for this as well.

      A:

      You can overlap or just meet the 2 pieces flush. However, if you meet them flush, then you should wrap the handle at this spot. I think it's best to just overlap the rawhide. You can file and sand the edges to clean it up some after it has completely dried. Usually, you don't need to put anything on the belly side.

  • Q:

      A:

      With my experience using this rawhide I have notice that when I installed it on a bow that was completed that it did add close to 5 lbs. to the draw weight. As far as slowing the bow down after I reduced weight and retillered it I noticed no difference with the arrow cast or speed.

      I haven't noticed that this product slows down my limbs. I have used them on 3-4 different bows now and it works great. I will continue to use this product.

      I'm really not sure if it will work we haven't ever done it before. I don't see why it wouldn't work.

  • Q:

    The product description states "Sold in pairs. Approximately 2" x 36" dimensions.". Does this mean that two (2) pieces are included and that each is 36" long; for a total of 72"? Or, are there two pieces include that total 36" long?

  • Q:

    How much draw weight will the rawhide add to my bow?
    Asked on 3/3/2012 by Longbowbob from New Hampshire

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      The rawhide will add very little if any weight to the bow. Rawhide is used to protect the back of the bow from breaking.

    • A:

      primitive peoples also used it to create a smooth surface so they could paint broken up designs on the backs of the bow. i commonly use it when i build my horn and sinew composite bows.

  • Q:

    I noticed that there is a smooth side an a coarse side. Do I glue the coarse side next to the wood?

      A:

      Yes you will want to glue the coarse side to the bow. This will allow the glue to better hold the rawhide and wood together.

  • Q:

    Do you clamp the rawhide to the bow in any way or just let it sit on the bow?
    Asked on 2/27/2012 by Longbowbob from New Hampshire

      A:

      Use Titebond 3 as the adhesive. You will need to soak the rawhide in room temperature water to make it more pliable. After the rawhide is pliable, remove excess water with a dry towel. Lay the rawhide onto the bow and restrain it with an ace bandage.
