These staves are designed by to have a Howard Hill style handle with a cut in arrow shelf. This is the best choice for those who who prefer an arrow shelf be part of their bow. They have been laminated with a small amount of reflex to allow for a bit of string-follow during the building process yet still end up with straight limbs. Other than the profile being cut these staves have had no work. We left the fun part for you!
Our staves are approximately 72" long and can be cut down to make bows as short as 66" and are meant for draw weights up to 65# @ 28"
They are available in the following woods:
-bamboo backed osage belly
