          Comments about Bamboo-Backed Hickory Bow Kit:

          The wood is straight, and the bamboo has a good flat edge for gluing, but the whole kit is barely more than an inch wide. The last kit I bought was thin, at 1 1/4", but this is a minimum that I can live with. This one is approximately 1 1/8", so there's no room for adjustment if any warp or twist develops during the glue-up. Setting the saw to cut the pieces a little thinner might get you more pieces, but I'm sorry to say you won't be selling any more of them to this customer.

                Comments about Bamboo-Backed Hickory Bow Kit:

                This longbow turned out great. Tillered to 50 lbs at 26.5, lots of power. I put on the phenolic ends and made a flemish string from fast flight. Very happy with the way the bow turned out.

                Verified Reviewer

                Pros

                • Good quality

                Cons

                • Tapering

                Best Uses

                  Comments about Bamboo-Backed Hickory Bow Kit:

                  Very good wood quality, no warping, the bamboo was properly dried and planed, so no convex shape, all laminates fit together nicely.

                  Yet, one small problem, the hickory was a little wavy where it was tapered. But an easy fix with a joiner or hand planer. This kit looks very nice with the Bubinga wood riser, and tip overlays.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Perfect, and ahead of schedule, like all my other orders
