Details & Specs

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 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!

    Love the bow! It was way more than I expected. It arrived in great shape, took it right out of the box, strung it and shot it. I would buy another no problem and have no problem recommending the Rudder Bow.

    The Rudder Hickory Long Bow is a fine product. I highly recommend the bow. The day I received the bow I launched 100 arrows at 25 yards to target. Unbelievable accuracy, can't wait for bow season here in Texas. Good job Sportsman's Guide. Thanks Jim in Texas

    I returned this bow because it was very twisted and unusable the defect was so obvious that if it had been inspected before shipping it would not have been shipped. I wanted to reorder this Rudder Bow but was afraid I would get another not inspected product.
  6. 5 stars
    I ordered a 50-55 pound bow and the one I got was 52@28. The limbs are tillered nicely and bend evenly. Grip area is comfortable but people with large hands might find it small. The string included is a Flemish twist and it doesn't have a serving so you will have to put one on. Also these bows are hand made and it shows so don't expect a "factory" type finish. The bow is very smooth and shoots great. Overall a good traditional starter bow and are also perfect for a primitive setup.
