Like the mythical river for which it is named, the 56" Stygian Recurve offers many exciting twists and turns for the traditional bowhunter. It's built compact to shoot in tight places with authority, yet you won't believe how smooth it draws.
Riser: Radiused, cut-on center shelf with high grip. Charcoal action wood with maple accents.
Arrow Rest: The Stygian Recurve comes with a hair arrow rest and leather strike plate.
Limbs: Maple and black fiberglass.
String: High performance Flemish twist string.
Available in right or left handed in 29#, 35#, 40#, 45#, 50#, and 55# @ 28". 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" 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.
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).
