Mike @ 7 Lakes Archery roughed out a custom American Flat Longbow to my specs, using 4 actionboo tapered lams under black glass. The limbs exhibit classic string follow. The riser is Ipe hardwood.
Mike did the initial limb tillering and I did all the final wood rasping and sanding that included adding red oak overlays to the riser back and limb tips. The limb tips are reinforced with carbon fiber and the bow can easily handle any modern bowstring fiber. I built a BCY D'02 bowstring with Dacron loop serving and BCY Halo HMPE center serving. I sprayed the final many multiple clear coat finish with Helmsman Marine Spar Varnish for a durable finish that can touched up easily. It is in like-new excellent condition.
This bow has never been afield and has only seen service at my home range. The draw is smooth with zero stacking and spits out heavy wood or carbon arrows with authority. Extremely stable, as are all good AFL longbows, this fine bow just needs a good home and some hunting love.
Included is a custom Teresa Asbell wool bow sock with leather footing, and a Cabelas nylon covered and zipper ended bow travel hard tube.
