Follow the build of Yew bow # From raw stave to finished high performance English longbow! A New 72″ Yew English longbow tiller weight at about 70lbs@28. The bow is destined for my client Tim Zimmer. This bow performed like a champ on Sunday as Sean got a serious workout from pumping scores of rounds at full draw. Along with a few others to add to the work load for the day. Field tiller done while shooting as the bow was close 76/78lb@28 and tiller needed work so we do it right there in the field. Got it down to right at 70lb@28 which Tim was suggesting to go to if it was still good for the stick. Well the tiller made it there and was burying the arrows most of the way through the target. So now its the final goodies..buffalo horn knocks and tung oil finish . Tim is another very happy client with his 72″ Traditional Mary Rose Folklore Edition.
