Each kit comes with a pre-tapered Ipe center lamination, Hickory belly, Bamboo backing, and a glue-on Ipe strike plate. The backing is planed flat and heat tempered, ready to be glued on.

Although intended for an English style longbow, you can build an American flatbow (Howard Hill style) as well. These go perfect with the English Longbow Instructional booklet, which covers everything from glue-up to tillering and finishing.

The bow blank is estimated to produce approximately up to 70# maximum bow draw weight. Measures to an Average tip-to-tip length of 72".
