Bamboo backed hickory flat bow is renowned for its power and toughness in the field. It simply takes punishment and delivers heavy hunting arrows where you need them! It is a very accurate bow when matched up with a set of matching arrows. This is one of our most popular bows. Beyond being tough and dependable, they are very good looking as well. Stained dark for improved stealth.

    Great bow for the price, shoots very well after using the archery before you buy pamphlet to figure draw weight, draw length, arrow length and spine!

    Really very happy with this 50-55 lb. bow! Smooth draw at my 27" draw length, no stacking, out to 17 yards it shoots bullseyes instinctively provided I anchor consistently and follow through! At 5' 10" of my body height it seems fitted to my style and points naturally, shoots comfortably!

    I like this bow, it's my first higher draw weight bow at 50 to 55 lbs. I heard good enough things about bamboo backed hickory that I wanted to try one. I was not disappointed! Very smooth and no evidence of stacking at full draw 27" for me, and no hand shock. I gave it 4 out of 5 because as I shoot it over the past few days, it seems the finish is experiencing little miniscule bubble spots in a small number of places on the back and belly near the grip/fadeouts where it seems to lift. I'll contact Rudderbows and see if my water based polyurethane arrow sealer I use, is compatible to touch it up. I am now shooting it instinctively out to 17 yards and provided my stance, head position are in goid alignment, I can anchor consistently and release smoothly to shoot fist size 5 shot groups! We discussed with the proprietor about my drawl length, arrow length and spine which was all found to be compatible. I recommend this bow as well as the Crow's Head Getting Started Before/After you buy, online resources.
