Complete the look of your traditional bow with a handmade traditional Flemish twist bowstring. Mix and match 12 string colors plus 4 serving color options. (choose string colors from drop down list)

SERVINGS ARE AVAILABLE. Message us for details.

These are made from Dacron-B50 string material, which I have found to be the best for making this specific type of bowstring. You can choose 1 or 2 colors to create the perfect compliment to your traditional, long, woodsman, recurve or reflex-deflex style bow. The color(s) will be twisted in the traditional technique, with the ends of the loops secured together to prevent slippage.

COLORS AVAILABLE: The first picture shows what our colors look like (colors move from left to right, back row then to the front as you read down the list). The last picture shows some possible color combinations.

• Red
• Orange
• Yellow
• Teal Green
• Blue
• Black
• Brown
• Cocobolo
• Hunter Green
• Silver
• White
• Pale Yellow
• Gold

In my quest to provide the best fitting bowstrings possible, I just need a little bit of information from you.

- What type of bow is this string for (longbow? recurve? etc.)
- Length of your bow from nock to nock OR length of the flemish bowstring you're replacing
- Poundage of your bow
- What color(s) you would like (if you would like a monotone string, just choose the same color for both options)

************HOW TO MEASURE*************

When entering the string length needed this will be the actual length of the string itself measured "off bow" and not the bows length.

• If you have no string then you would enter the bows length

Take a tape measure and start at the nock/string groove of either end. Do not include the bow tips. Run the tape down thebelly (side facing you when you shoot it) of the un-strung bow down to the other nock/string groove. That is the length of your bow that I will build your string off of

• If you have a old string you were shooting with and were happy with the brace height then this would be your best guide:

Take your old string that has been unstrung from the bow. Now slip one end loop over a nail or hanger and take the measurement from this loop end to the other loop end “tip to tip” while stretching it out. Pulling the string taut to where there is no loose slack in the string is good enough. You may need someone to help you with this.

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
