This is the perfect option for archers who want to have a hand in finishing their bow. These "You Finish Hickory Longbows" come tillered, sanded, with a string, and ready to shoot. They just need to be finished to your liking! Add a leather grip, arrow rest and plate, or anything else you want - it's your bow and you're finishing it!
It is recommended that you seal your bow after you've finished it. We suggest Spray Polyurethane Bow Finish.
Sold in weights of 35, 40, 45, 50, and 55, at 28", please specify. Approximately 72" tip-to-tip.
Please note: This bow does not have a warranty.
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.
Remember that with a traditional bow the weight will change depending your draw length. Bow weight will change approximately ±2½ pounds for every inch from a bows rated draw length. So, a bow rated 35# @ 28" is roughly a 32½# @ 27" or 37½# @ 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.
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).
