Ancient history is often mingled with legend. The Trojan War is a perfect example. Did the King of Sparta truly wage war against Troy for the hand of the lovely Helen?
One thing we do know for a fact is that such a war would have included use of the longbow. The Trojan Longbow is a historical replica of just such a bow.
Made from Hickory Sapwood, the Trojan Longbow comes with a Dacron Bowstring. It is stained dark brown and hand-wiped with gold paint. It features a real leather hand wrap for comfort.
Embrace the legend with the Trojan Longbow! Measures 72" long. Comes in draw weights of 35#, 40#, 45#, 50#, and 55#. Please specify.

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.
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 primitive bow when you are done shooting, and only string it right before shooting. 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).
