Hill style American Longbow


Hill style American Longbow

The Vintage Hill style bows by Fairbow are shaped after the early bows by famous bowyers of days passed.
Extremely narrow, (26-30 mm, just over an inch) at the widest point to just under half an inch at the string groove.
Up to 5 layers of tempered bamboo in front of the hardwood lightweight riser. NO bamboo goes over the fades on the riser (did we mention vintage look?) this is all wedged in between Gordons Bo-Tuff ULS glass.

Straight glue-up, so when you receive the bow, it will have a slight stringfollow to help you with a smooth and forgiving draw and shot. Making this narrow lightweighed bow smooth and a joy to shoot.
The nocks are re-enforced with a thin sliver of horn, and tiny, really small, not for the fainthearted. Dont stump 'm in the dirt and break 'm.

The grip is per sec straight. No locater, no pistol, just straight and narrow, giving you pressure in the hand where it should, covered in a glued on, reverse polished leather, nice to hold.

High gloss varnish.

White fastflight double looped string.

We use the following guidelines to determine the length of bows ordered:
24-25" drawlength = 63-64" bowlength
26-27" drawlength = 65-66" bowlength
28-29" drawlength = 67-68" bowlength
30-31" drawlenght = 69-70" bowlength
32" -- - drawlength = 71-72" bowlength
