Youth Longbow, ash


The use of bows can be traced to pre-historic times. The golden period of longbows lasted from 1250-1450, when it was typical in hunting, warfare as well as in competitions. With the advent of firearms the use of longbows in war waned considerably. This was partly also influenced by the fact that using a longbow effectively takes years and years of dedicated practice, which made maintaining a longbow force both expensive and time-consuming.

This junior longbow is an excellent first bow for slightly older children. At 12-16 pounds the bow is not too stiff which makes it easy and plesant to shoot with.
This junior longbow is made of ash tree and is approximately 137 cm long when measured along the string.

Suitable to use with this bow are -Arrows with Rubber Blunts - and -Arrows with Field Points-.
