72″ Hickory Longbow 50lbs@28″ Diamondback snakeskin-w/one dzn arrows
For sale is a 72″ Longbow hewn from a premium hickory stave with all growth rings intact and tillered to a 50lb+ @ 28 inches draw.The bow has a big powerful feel and form and handles with real nice grip and control. It has low release shock so its smooth on release of arrow. The bow has been tested and shoots with excellent power, speed and quite accurate.
There is diamondback rattlesnake skin backing adhesive to the back of the bow. Snakeskin is not as fragile as one would imagine..it is quite durable.I have taken my snakeskin backed bows deep into the outback country and aggressive shooting in general and its still in vert good shape.This bow performs very well and shows no sign of surface lifting on the back of the bow and it has potential to be around and in good form for some years of use.
The handle is carved and shaped to fit your palm and works for either hand. Hand painted trin and design. A high finish lacquer and a light maple toned stain. The bow can definitely take down relatively large game so its very capable of doing the job for hunting. There is one dozen very good quality port orford cedar arrows to come with the bow. They are not cheap arrows from a flea market..they are professionally fletched and nocked in my shop.
NOTE: As with any typical self bow there is a fast limb and a slow limb although tillering has been done to maximize the relationship in limb symmetry. Please be sure that right or left hand that the fast limb (more bend) is up and the firmer limb is below.
Thank you to look at my bow auction.
