Deluxe Hickory Flat Bow Builder's Kit is rated 4.2857 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rudder Hickory Longbow kit The bow kit came quickly and I got started building it. I got the bow tilled and the the limbs symetrical. I then worked on trimming the limbs to get the draw weight I wanted which was 45#, stretching the limbs after each attempt. Two hours into the process and close to the preferred draw weight, I stretched it one last time while on the scale and the upper limb cracked. big sigh..I have no ill feelings as wood tends to have a mind of its own. I elected not to try again but rather I purchased a finished OMP Ozark Hunter bow instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Deal Around I have been looking for a bow kit for a while now, and found this to be the best deal to get me started in the right direction. This kit has everything I need to get me going. I already watched the instructional video on YouTube put out by the manufacture of the bow kit. Once you see it, the instructions are a good guide. If you have not seen the video, the instructions may not be enough to complete a bow.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wasted Effort First, the instructions badly written and short on details. If you are an experienced bow maker, or have access to other sources of information this would be a nice kit. The bow was not marked for draw weight per the instructions, and did not have the extra notch for the stringer (I had to add that). I'm an experienced wood worker and was progressing nicely despite the shortcomings noted above, I had an even arc on both limbs and was testing for draw weight. I tested the bow at 40# at 18in with no problems, I was looking for a 50# pull at 28in (per the instructions), it was looking fine until I was approx. 27in pull, when the bow came apart.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I found the kit it self ok. The instructions I got was very poor. I am a very green bow maker; I felt I should have receive better directions. The tiller string is too long.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Project for my grandson and I Can't answer until after Christmas. The instruction that came with the kit are very poor but the mfg. of the kit has a great video instruction on youtube that is very detailed .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great learning project! First, the instructions need a grammatical review by someone who speaks English as his first language. Other than that, this is a great woodworking project! I'm still working on it a little each day, and I love it! I do find a hand held sanding block more useful that the provided scraper tool. And I had to add two slabs of walnut to the grip to make it fit comfortably. But, when I'm done this will absolutely be MY longbow!

Rudder Bows Archery Handmade Hickory Longbow is a hunter's favorite. BIG BUCKS OFF!

Swift. Silent. Reliable! Historically, the D-shaped Longbow is preferred by traditional archers like Robin Hood and his side-kick Little John. Longbows have been the Bow of choice for hundreds, even thousands of years for hunting and warfare. As seen in action by ancient Nubians, Kurds, Arabs and Native American tribes. Today's wooden Longbows (like this Rudder Bows unit) are handmade from tough-as-nails solid sapwood hickory... the better choice to withstand compression and tension.

Zing! A Longbow has practical advantages compared to a modern recurve or compound bow... it is usually lighter, quicker to prepare for shooting and zips arrows more quietly. No wonder it's a favorite among hunters. Great target Bow, too. And now our special buy shoots BIG BUCKS OFF!

Details:

  • Solid hickory hardwood construction
  • 100% handmade in the USA
  • Cut with an arrow rest
  • Bow string and stringer included
  • Draw length: approx. AMO 70". 72"l., 1 1/2 lbs.

State Hand and Draw Weight, as available in the Shopping Cart.
