Striker/3R RK1 Longbow LimbsItem Number: 22983X
Striker has ventured with New Breed Archery to develop the Striker RK1 60" Takedown bow that is a perfect blend of modern and traditional designs with reflex/deflex longbow, or recurve limbs, giving nail driving accuracy.
The bamboo core limbs add strength and elasticity for a quick and responsive recovery, capturing the speed while maintaining durability. These limbs are also interchangeable on all Striker risers. The overall lightweight and engineered designed of the RK1 is sure to be a real game changer in the world of traditional archery.
- Limbs: Black Limba or Curly Etimoe with action bamboo cores and maple/wenge overlays. Limb bolt and dual alignment pin attachment.
- Draw weights: of 35#, 40#, 45#, 50#, 55#, or 60# (rated at a 28" draw length)
- Made in the USA
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.
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).
