Like the swift, majestic creature for which it is named, the 60" Buck Trail Antelope Recurve Bow will inspire you with its beauty.
It is called the "Antelope" because of its matchless speed, and the elegant curve of the deflex limbs, reminiscent of the antelope's gently curving horns. The Antelope is a lightweight bow that packs a lot of power at a great price.
Riser: Constructed from walnut with Dymondwood laminations. The radiused shelf is cut-past-center with rug rest installed. Side plate sold separately. The forward riser design makes the Antelope inherently more stable and forgiving, while decreasing stacking and finger pinch for longer draw lengths.
Limbs: Maple limbs surrounded by black fiberglass.
Bow String: Flemish Dyneema.
Available in right or left handed in pull weights of 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 40, and 55# @ 28" draw. Please specify.
Choose from a left or right handed bow (choose based on what hand you Draw the bow string with), and bow weight at a 28" draw length. Remember that with a traditional bow the weight will change depending upon what your draw length is. Bow weight will change approximately ±2½ pounds for every inch from a bows rated draw length. So a bow rated 45# @ 28" is roughly a 42½# @ 27" or 47½# @ 29". Draw weight is marked at the nearest 5# increment to actual weight, (2#'s under and 3#'s over). This is an industry wide standard.
Bow stringer not included. 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. Click here to see our Bow Stringers. It is recommended to unstring your bow if you do not plan to be shooting more than week. 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).
