Old English LongbowItem Number: 85920X
The English Longbow was once so important to the British Empire that all able-bodied men were required to own one and practice regularly. This Old English Longbow is an amazing recreation of that historic weapon, and is a great way to recapture the glories of the past. You won't need a King ordering you to practice with this bow!
Made from a solid piece of sturdy hickory, this is a longbow made to last. It features the classic English longbow design, with a smooth rounded belly and tapered limbs. The top limb features a groove for the included stringer. The handle is wrapped in jute twine, for a comfortable grip and traditional look.
The Old English Longbow does not have an arrow shelf, therefore it is recommended you use a bow glove for shooting off the hand.
Measures 72" long. The Old English Longbow is suitable for right or left hand shooters and comes in bow weights of 30, 35, 40, 45, and 50# @ 28" draw. Please specify.
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.

Never rest the bow on the lower tip for extended periods of time. Never dry fire the bow (shooting without an arrow).
