Slick Stick Hybrid LongbowItem Number: 868501X
Bearpaw USA calls this hybrid longbow the "Slick Stick" because it elegantly melds the performance of a recurve with the simplicity of a longbow. All of that at a great price too!
Limbs: This bow is a sweet shooter, with reflex/deflex limbs constructed of a bamboo core surrounded by an Alder veneer and clear fiberglass. You'll enjoy smooth shooting with no hand-shock. The micarta tip overlays add extra stability and strength.
Riser: The dished grip fits like a glove to feel great in your hand, and just a joy to shoot all day. The charcoal or nutmeg super action wood riser is as beautiful as it is functional, and has a durable satin matt finish. Features a radiused, cut-on center shelf. Rest included.
String: Dyneema® and Dacron blended Flemish twist string.
At 58" the Slick Stick is great for archers of age ranges from teen to full grown men. Shoots smooth, even at longer draw lengths. It also comes with a high performance 'Whisper' bow string, string nock, and a lifetime warranty. Recommended brace height of 7 - 7½".
The Slick Stick Longbow is available in colors of charcoal or nutmeg, in right or left handed. Comes in weights of 29, 35, 40, 45, 50, or 55#. 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" bow 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.
Minimum Arrow Weight - Do not shoot an arrow weighing less than eight grains for every pound of peak draw weight. For example: If your bow's peak weight is 40 pounds at your 30" draw length, do not shoot an arrow weighing less than 320 grains total arrow weight (40# x 8 gpp = 320 grains). Shooting an arrow below eight grains per pound (gpp) can cause damage to your bow similar to dry firing and possible injury to the shooter or others nearby. Damage caused by shooting an arrow that is too light will damage the bow and will not be covered under warranty by 3Rivers Archery or bow manufacturer.
