A longbow as pleasant to draw back as it is to shoot. The Great Plains Rio Bravo takedown longbow with a 66" length creates less pressure on your fingertips, making it feel like one of the easiest pulling bows you're likely to ever shoot.
The 2-piece socketed sleeve takedown assembly sits below the buckskin leather grip.
The trapezoid design (where the limb edges blend towards the riser) helps to enhance the performance while reducing hand shock. The mild reflex/deflex with hand sewn leather grip gives it a simplistic look while delivering the performance and stability you expect.

Choose from a left or right hand 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" bow is roughly 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.
This bow does not come with a bow stringer. 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).
