AMERICAN LONGBOW (AFB)

Bamboo makes a fast and sweet-shooting bow, and these american longbows are no exception.

Made up from tapered laminations of various woods, and with a bamboo backing, these bows prove that glass fibre or carbon isn't necessary for an efficient design. The nodes are left proud on the backing to compliment the beauty of this unique material.

Risers can be made with left or right hand shelf, or without a shelf for those archers who like to shoot off their knuckle. The handles can be laminated in exotic woods, or from a single type of wood, according to preference.
