Great Plains 52" Youth Osagian LongbowItem Number: 2285X
The Osagian Youth Longbow is one of the smoothest, fastest performing youth bows in the traditional archery market today. Built not only for eye appeal, it's a real shooter as well.
The riser is solid Osage for an incredible look. The Osagian Youth Longbow uses a reflex/deflex design for more working limb to really pump out performance when it casts an arrow. The limbs are Osage surrounding a maple core, with a clear fiberglass backing. The tips are black phenolic for handling high performance bow strings. Includes a Flemish Twist high performance string.
The buck skin leather wrap offers a comfortable grip that you won't find with many youth bows. The calfskin rest and strike plate provides a slick release of the arrow on a slight radius shelf. This radius shelf provides less contact with the arrow (less drag) so you can expect better flight and increase in speed.
Overall, this is one of the finest youth bows on the market. This bow is built to last so you can expect it to be handed down to other members of the family.

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 ±2 pounds for every inch from a bows rated draw length. So a bow rated 25# @ 24" bow is roughly a 23# @ 23" or 27# @ 25". 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).
