This bow is a beautiful piece of history that is great for reenactors, target shooting and hunting. This bow meets the classic 8/5 rule for historical shoots and feels great in the hand. This is the essence of what a bow should be; simple, smooth, and fun to shoot. Brown leather handle wrap for comfort and finished with a clear, durable polyurethane finish. The solid hickory bow is one tough hunting partner that can take the punishment of the outdoors.

The guys at Crowshead.com were super friendly.
As far as the bow: This thing is sick. I haven't been shooting in over ten years and wanted to go back to something more traditional. This is EXACTLY what I was looking for. Good luck finding a bow of this quality with this draw weight anywhere else. I scoured the internet for longbows over 45# draw weights and they either didn't exist or you were going to have to put a mortgage on your house to get one custom built. Needless to say the day I got my bow I took it to the range and tested it on a scale. This thing will shoot over a 60# draw weight! I am super pleased with the look and feel of the bow. The craftsman ship is impeccable. All the old timers (one of which is a national champion shooter) were extremely intrigued loved the way it looks and feels. When I shoot this bow the power behind it is incredible. Accuracy is totally dependent on the shooter at this point. I love my new bow. Thanks guys!

I purchased the Classic English Longbow as a way to get into traditional archery without a huge financial leap. I have only shot a compound bow for over 20 years at 70# draw so I went with the 40-45 pound draw as a way to get form right before trying to move up in weight to a hunting traditional bow.
The bow arrived in proper packaging and is of good finish and has no knots or imperfections. Once strung, I immediately got into the groove of shooting off the hand and found it very relaxing. The bow fires well and is smooth and quiet. The shots are accurate and this bow does not seem to "stack" or vibrate. I will be ordering more bows through crowshead, the thought of cables makes me cringe, now.
