This just may be the last bow you will ever desire. The Striker Takedown Bow offers custom bowyer quality craftsmanship, whisper quiet performance, and dead-in-hand precision shooting. To top it off, you can interchange Striker's recurve and longbow limbs and shoot just as accurately without the learning curve you typically get from switching bows.
Riser: Radiused, cut 1/16" past center shelf with medium forward grip and thumb rest for consistent hand positioning every time you pick it up. Made from the finest hand-picked Cocobolo, and reinforced with phenolic and yew striping to insure the most stable shot possible. Available in 14" and 16" length. Arrow rest installed.
Limbs: Limb bolt and dual alignment pin attachment. Figured Bocote veneers with action Bamboo cores and Cocobolo wedges topped by clear Gordon's fiberglass. Phenolic is added to the front and backs of the tips for added support.
String: 18 strand Fast Flight® Flemish Twist bow string. Wooly Whispers silencers included.
Bow stringer included. Options: 14" or 16" riser (60" or 62" bow length) in right or left handed with pull weight of 40-60#. Longbow or Recurve limbs. Please specify.
Choose 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 bow's 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.
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. 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).
