This you-finish Bamboo backed Red Oak longbow measures 35#@28" and is for the person who's always wanted to try their hand at bowmaking. It measures 72 inches overall, 70 inches nock to nock, and 67 inches when strung. A handmade Flemish bowstring in blue and green comes with the bow.

This bow is the perfect project to bond with your child over, or to finish and personalize on your own in your own style. The tillering is done for you, all you'd have to do is cut out and sand the desired handle, then stain and seal the wood in whatever color you choose. The limbs have already been sanded with the grain raised and resanded so that the only work to be done is in the handle.

If you're not sure how to measure out the handle, we will happily draw the lines for you at no extra charge. All you have to do is cut along the lines. You have various choices depending on your shooting style - shelfless, right-handed, left-handed. It is advised that you have access to either a bandsaw or a scrollsaw for this project.

Don't want to cut the handle on your own? No problem, we'll do it for you! Just leave us a comment in the notes section when you purchase this bow telling us what type of handle you'd like.

Nothing beats the feel of finishing and customizing your own bow. We have sold numerous you finish bows at shows and have seen some really interesting decorating techniques. Challenge yourself and see what you come up with. Have a bow that is one-of-a-kind through your individual expression

We will send tips on how to finish your bow and what we recommend to use, along with our usual "Care for your bow" form, if you'd like. Just let us know when you purchase the bow.

****NOTE**** There is no warranty on this bow as we are not there to oversee the work.

There are a few things you should know before buying any bow.

• Try before you buy - really important, try bows of different draw weights, bow lengths and manufacturers. You will find that some limbs will feel harder to draw than others. This will help you narrow down your preferred draw weight and inform you as to your draw length.

• Visit local shop – There are a number of archery and general sports shops, big and small, all around the country and all quality ones will give you the opportunity to try first and spend time with you. If possible take an experienced person with you when trying equipment out.

• When in doubt, ask. We are happy to answer any of your questions.
Draw length and draw weight are the two most important things to know when ordering archery equipment.

Draw length corresponds to the arm length of the person drawing
the bow. Industry standard is 28".

Draw weight corresponds to how heavy the bow pulls.

* For Bow Orders - The bow should not be too heavy to draw back comfortably, or too light that it doesn't offer a challenge. Body height does not matter when it comes to ordering a bow.

* For Arrow Orders - Please know the correct draw length and draw weight needed to match the bow the arrows will be used with. If the arrows are for display or cosplay only, and will not be shot, draw weight does not matter.
Buffalo bows are a high draw weight bow with a short draw length based off of Plains style bows. They are meant for a crouched shooting style, indicative of hiding behind brush.

They are not youth bows. The short draw length does not indicate them for use by children and should not be purchased as a kid's bow. The reason for this is because children have the tendency to draw the bow back as far as they can, and these bows are not meant for that. Overdrawing will cause a bow to break.

We do not recommend them for people under the age of 18 and/or those without proper understanding of how to use a buffalo bow. Giving a buffalo bow to a child voids any and all warranties.
Did you see an arrow set you love, or fall in love with a bow, but want it to match your character or personal style?

Can we change it to match your colors?

Of course!

The beauty of handmade is that we can customize to your personal colors. Feel free to message us, let us know what item you were looking at and what colors you'd like.

We will work with you to create your vision to the best of our abilities and within the realm of physics (Sorry folks, sometimes video game physics and real world physics just don't play well together)

Any changes to orders must be made prior to the custom order being purchased. At that point we start prepping everything as agreed upon. No changes can be made after the listing has been purchased
