These staves are designed by Tom Turgeon to allow a slight bend through the handle utilizing the entire length of the bow and resulting in an incredibly smooth draw and no hand shock. This is our stave/bow design of choice. Other than the profile being cut these staves have had no work. We left the fun part for you!
They have a small amount of reflex to allow some string-follow during the building process yet still end up with a straight limb bow
Our staves are approximately 72" long and can be cut down to make bows as short as 66" and are made to achieve draw weights up to 65# @ 28"
