THE LEGENDARY, LOYAL LONGBOW
The bow of legend. The same kind that Robin Hood and most of the English Army put into good use back in the ‘olden day’. Whereas a recurve bow is fast and powerful, the longbow will let your arrow fly straighter and much longer. So, whenever it is more advantageous to launch your attack from a distance, rely on your loyal Epic Armoury LARP Long Bow.Made of wood and fiberglass, this impressive bow has an authentic medieval look and can be used by both right- and left-handed warriors. It is inspired by the traditional medieval English Yew longbow and gives the genuine sensation of a time when skillful Yeowmen used to win wars for their King. This LARP bow has an appealing light wood finish, and its fiberglass tips are black. A laced up, leather-look wrap forms the grip. Whether you are aiming to hit bullseye on the target or taking down a foe from afar, this fiberglass and wood longbow is a great weapon for any LARP fighter to have at hand. The draw weight of this bow is approximately 27 lb (+/- 3 lb) / 13 kilograms / 448 oz. messured with a 28" shaft. Dacron string is included with the bow.As this item is made from natural materials, please note that appearance can vary slightly from what is shown, and the draw weight can vary by up to 3 pounds above or below the listed amount.

When not in use, keep the bow unstrung to increase its life. Store the bow horizontally in order to protect the tips. Do not leave it in the sun for long periods of time, if you do, make sure it cools down before use. Never release the string without an arrow, since the shock of the shot will be absorbed by the bow and might cause damage.
Use a damp cloth to wipe away any dirt from the bow and then wipe dry. Simple as that! The only thing you might have to worry about is the string, which may eventually appear ratty or worn. Replace the string when this happens. String is cheaper than replacing a broken bow from a string snapping!
If you want to increase the life of your string, you can add a little bit of wax. Wax will protect the string from moisture while also keeping the threads together.
