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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun shooting Just took out to familiarize myself with the bow. Added the inserts and bought field points for target shooting. Quite impress with accuracy of bow. After several misses, was able to hit 18"x18" target at 25 yard range consistently. Lots of fun to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Bear Archery® Venue Compound Bow. No nonsense, no effort, and no escape.

Possibly the best all-around hunting bow you can put your hands on. Especially if those hands are bone-tired after six hours in 30-degree weather. S13 single-cam smooth for an easy, steady draw, 7-inch brace for a forgiving feel, high-efficiency riser technology and Max-Preload Quad limbs for effortless performance. Light weight, super quiet, shock and vibration-free, remarkably fast. Whatever, wherever, and however long you're hunting, the hunt for the right Bow is over. It's the Venue, and it's here in your choice of draw weights, for righties and lefties.

Here's the technology at work:
  • S13 Cam is Bear®'s fastest, smoothest, and most versatile rotating-module cam, combining blistering speed, smooth draw cycle, maximum efficiency, and optional ease of draw length adjustment... all without the need for a bow press. It's the ultimate high-tech way to exert precise control over massive power.
  • High-precision Zero Tolerance Limb Pockets - The tightest, most precise limb-to-limb pocket fit yet achieved absorbs vibration and hand shock better than ever. Whether you're using every ounce of limb poundage or a lower draw weight, extreme precision goes a long way.
  • Advanced Riser Technology - Evenly distributes limb loads. Forged and precision-machined aircraft--grade aluminum provides extreme strength in critical areas while trimming mass in low-stress sections, creating the most durable, reliable and lightweight bow available.
  • Removable Overmolded Grip - Typically, changing hand location or pressure, wearing a glove, or adding a quiver will change point-of-impact and string out your groups. With Bear®'s removable grips, you can change from side plate to overmolded grip style to match hand position to your hunt.
  • Bear® Hinge Guard utilizes a centralized mount for a stronger, lighter rise, and consistently reduces lateral loads at full draw. Also reduces torque on both the riser and limbs.
  • Max-Preload Quad Limbs for proven power. Incredibly strong and light, Bear®'s high-tensile composite dual limbs work as a system with high-precision, zero-tolerance limb/cup/riser fit and tight vibration-dampening boot to ensure smooth draw, power and shock-free shooting.
  • High-strength Aluminum Barrel Nut for fully-adjustable pivoting movement of limb pocket.
  • Rubber Riser Inserts absorb vibration and sound.
Specs:
  • IBO arrow speed: 330 f.p.s.
  • Peak draw weight: 50 lbs. / 60 lbs. / 70 lbs. (depending on model)
  • Adjustable draw length from 24-31", in 1/2" increments
  • Let-off: 80%
  • Brace height: 7"
  • Axle-to-axle length: 32 1/4"
  • Weight: 4 lbs.

PSE® SequoiaTM Longbow. Made of exotic hardwoods for traditional minded archers. Robin Hood Special: BIG BUCKS OFF!

Old school makes the grade! Ahh, the D-shaped Longbow, preferred by traditional archers like Robin Hood. Longbows have been used for hundreds, er, thousands of years. For hunting and warfare by ancient Nubians, Kurds, Arabs and Native American tribes. Today's wooden laminated Longbows (like this baby) are made by gluing together 2 or more different species of wood.

Usually this is done because some woods can better withstand compression, while others are better at withstanding tension. Whoosh! A Longbow has practical advantages compared to a modern recurve or compound bow... it is usually lighter, quicker to prepare for shooting and zings arrows more quietly.

  • Reflex / deflex-shaped bow is crafted in strict observance of tradition, setting high standards for stability and arrow velocity
  • Limbs are made from bamboo and clear fiberglass
  • Layered black walnut, cherry, and maple wood form the riser
  • Laminated, reinforced tips withstand shooting stress
  • Measures 68" end-to-end
  • Brace height is 6 1/2 -7"
  • Available in your choice 40#, 45#, 50#, and 55# draw weight @28" draw.
