Available in lengths from 50" to 80" AMO.

*~*To measure the AMO: A Traditional bow is measured from string groove to string groove (nock to nock) around the curve of the bows limbs, not directly from tip to tip. This measurement does not go into the curve of the handle but across the face of the bow limbs from string groove to string grove (nock to nock). This will give you the approximate length of the bow.*~*

Many color options available in solid or 2 colors (if you'd like a second color please indicate which you'd like in your order).

~Bowstring wax also available at $1.25 with purchase of Bowstring.~

*Bow poundage required for accurate strand count. If not indicated a standard will be made.

Please note that bow strings are made to order. Overnight shipping is not available.

Entirely hand crafted by Joseph Frye.

    Good wax not the best I'v ever used but it's 2nd best. That's why it gets a 4 star. Nice man owns the shop as well seems like a cool cat. But all and all good wax good vs water.
