        Excellent warbow for demonstrating the way archery was in the medieval ages. It even has a bend through the handle full compass look.

        Comments about Bamboo Backed English War Bow:

        I carry the war bow and several war shafts as part of my costume as an archer in our Baronial Guard in the SCA. The bow is an exampel of what a period war bow and arrows would have looked like and what demands would have beem placed on someone shooting it. The bow looks good! I still can't get it to full draw but am having fun trying. I can hit targets at 30 and 40 yards and have obtained a maximum distance of about 80 yards so far.

          Comments about Bamboo Backed English War Bow:

          This bow is very nice looking, it will certainly attact attention when you a among a group of modern/primitive archers. It is designed very well with great appeareance and strong durability. It is thicker than the regular longbow you will buy from other moderm manufacturer, and it is certainlly more durable. I bought a 90 lbs one and pull over to the ear and there are no problem. It is heavy so you need to do exercise and get familiar with it. But once you become strong enough to handle it you will not take your hand off it.

              Comments about Bamboo Backed English War Bow:

              This is a good bow, I bought the 90# at 32". The bow is powerful and robust with good tillering and an even draw. Shoots well and is sweetening with time. I'm shooting 600gn arrows 40m+ with no problem. Obviously the bow is heavy to draw by modern standards, you need to be strong.

              My advice is to keep the brace height low for the first 100 or so arrows then gradually wind up the brace height to a fistmele. Be gentle, don't hold at full draw for more than an instant. Expect heavy duty string slap so get a good bracer and a shooting glove.

              Also consider buying or making an extra string because the self nocks on this bow could wear the string quicker than horn nocks. No dramas though, just good practice to keep an eye on string wear with this baby.

              Strictly speaking it doesn't meet the English longbow spec - no horn nocks and partial bamboo construction - but it shoots well, is robust and offers fantastic value.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery was prompt and with out problem. Shipping to Australia took about 10 days, most of which was spent going through Australia.
