The American Longbow was developed to be suitable for both experienced archers and beginners, it’s offered with draw weights ranging from 25 lbs (light), to 35 lbs (medium), to 45 lbs (medium/heavy), and heavier weights can be ordered on a case by case basis.
With a hickory core and black fibreglass laminate the bow will last decades, it has a Bubinga riser and a calf hair arrow rest, a brass nock point and a black hand-stitched leather grip. The bow ships with Port Orford cedar arrows fitted with steel target points and feather fletching.
