The profile that is cut into theses staves is designed by Tom Turgeon to have 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!
