ASSYRIAN" - Static Recurve. A delflex-reflex recurve with the lines of the old Assyrian bows. Static recurves make for a very smooth drawing bow in a shorter length. Available in 58" and 60" lengths, and weights to 70#.

"ELKHEART" - Named for author Dave Petersen, the Elkheart is a short mild forward handle deflex-reflex longbow. Extremely smooth drawing for its length. Quiet. light, and compact. The Elkheart comes in 52"-58" lengths for draw lengths from under 28" up to 32".

"FALCON" - Very similar to the Elkheart, but in longer lengths of 58" and 60".

"FALCON XL" - A longer heaver handled version of the Falcon. Available in 62" and 64".

"TANJAVUR" and "TANJAVUR RECURVE" - "A Royal Line from Southern India" - Styled after the double recurve bows of South East Asia. The set back and deflexed handle, combined with a semi-static slight recurves, make this bow one of the smoothest drawing and fastest shooting bows I offer. With no hand shock. Lengths 58" and 60".

"INFERNO" - Hybrid Long Bow. A compact longbow with some Asian influence. The double recurve handle brings the grip closer to the shooter compared to a forward handle bow. This causes the limbs to bend more to brace the bow. Combined with extra reflex in the limbs, this makes for a smooth, quick but still very quiet bow. Available in lengths 52", 54", 56", and 58".

"EROS" - Recurve Brother of the Inferno. This bow has the full Asian styling of ancient bows. Re-enforced with modern fiberglass and maple core, it is stable, fast, and amazingly quiet. Available in lengths 52", 54", and 56".

"SWEET GRASS" - A mild deflex-reflex longbow. Available in lengths of 62", 64", and 66".

"HELMS DEEP" - A 52", 54", or 56" static recurve with heavily deflexed riser. Very smooth to draw and quick and quiet.
