Great Northern Traditional Longbow:
Our Traditional Longbow is Great Northern’s original offering. The Traditional has unequaled stability and the smoothness of draw expected in a fine longbow. With a sleek, narrow limb core which is slightly set back, 1
1/8” wide at the fadeouts and 9/16” at the string nocks, this is an elegant and refined longbow.
Customers who enjoy shooting straight limb, deep cored longbows claim that the performance and manners of our Traditional Longbow surpasses most other longbows of this type. The riser is 15” long and measures 4 3/4” around the leather handle wrap.
The Traditional Longbow’s performance is enhanced by the precise trapezoid cross section of the limbs, reducing limb mass, eliminating hand shock and increasing arrow speed. We are pleased to announce that, as a further enhancement of performance and appearance of our Traditional Longbow, we have replaced tip overlays with limb power wedges.
Our Traditional Longbow limbs are available in your choice of red elm, osage, hickory or bamboo.
Riser woods are available in your choice from our Dymondwood range. Tip wedges will match riser
Available lengths: 66” and 68”.
Recommended brace height: 6 3/4”.
