Great Northern Ghost Recurve:
The original design concept for our Ghost Recurve was inspired by the Glenn St. Charles "Thunderbird" recurve, designed and built in
the 1950’s. This sleek, one piece recurve hides amazing speed and smoothness of draw in it’s simple design. Our goal was to design a recurve that departed from the common recurve format. We wanted a slimmer, lighter handling recurve with significantly less mass then standard recurves, a recurve that was quick to handle, delivering the speed recurve shooters expect and enjoy.
The limbs measure 1 ½" wide at the fadeouts, tapering to 9/16" at the string nocks. The riser is 16" or 17" long depending on overall bow length. The handle is 4 7/8" in circumference at the leather grip. The arrow shelf is cut 1/8" out from center, just as our longbows are. This allows for switching between any of our longbows without having to make adjustments for shelf differences. The Ghost, as well as the Super Ghost, have 8” “power wedges” within the limb tips, enhancing speed and smoothness of draw.
The Ghost Recurve limbs are available in your choice of red elm, osage, hickory or bamboo.
Riser woods are available in your choice from our Dymondwood range.
Note: Nock overlays will match riser wood unless requested otherwise.
Available lengths: 58", 60" and 62".
