This Heavyweight Bamboo Backed English Warbow is made to English Longbow Society standards of 8:5 thickness to width ratio. Heavy duty Hickory belly and composite Bamboo backing. These Heavy weight English style War bows pack a smooth, but HEAVY punch. They shoot as good as they look!

This War bow has an average length of 76" long tip-to-tip. At this length, the War bow gives extra leverage for the archer and aids in drawing heavy draw weights back to full draw. Features dual strike plates for shooting right of left handed "off-the-knuckle." Vinyl leather grip installed. Includes bow string and bow stringer.

Perfect bow weights for time period correct reenactments or for English longbow organizational flight shoots.

Available in 90-100#, 100-110#, and 110-120# @ 32". Please specify.

Please note, the pull weights on the Heavy Weight Bamboo Backed Warbow are measured differently than with standard bows. The bow pulls 90-100# at 32" (will pull roughly 80-90# @ 28", or 100+# at 33"). The bow pulls 100-110# at 32" (will pull roughly 90-100# @ 28", or 110+# at 33"). The bow pulls 110-120# at 32" (will pull roughly 100-110# @ 28" or 120+# at 33").

A bow stringer is recommended for stringing any recurve bow or longbow. Stringing a bow without a bow stringer, or stringing it backwards will void a bow's warranty. It is recommended to unstring your primitive bow when you are done shooting, and only string it right before shooting. Store your bow on its side, or hanging vertically from a peg. Never rest the bow on the lower tip for extended periods of time. Never dry fire the bow (shooting without an arrow).
