New longbow

For those who live in areas where firearms are not an option and those that are smart enough to have a back up.

New longbow

Post by JoeTosco » Thu Jan 17, 2013 11:42 am

A bowyer and friend of mine just delivered my new bow: a reflex-deflex longbow.

It's 63", 55# @28", and super fast.

It's made of ipe, backed with bamboo and the riser is made of ipe, brazilwood and peroba(Aspidosperma spruceanum), this combination is beautiful.

The nocks are made of bone.

Needles to say I'm happy as a child with the new toy.

I made an arrow rest with whitetail deer hide. This deer was hunted by a friend using primitive bow and broadhead some years ago.

Now I'm waiting for 3rivers archery to deliver my package containing some feathers and a fletching jig to start making some arrows.

:ooh: That is absolutely gorgeous. I'm loving the ipe/bamboo combination, really nice.
