The longbow is truly about man extending his (or her) reach. One hour's tuition and this peerless wooden spring will enable you to shoot 160 yards and more !

The evolution of the longbow we shoot today is different from any other bow. Today's longbows have a direct connection with history. Longbow shoots also have that connection, which comes directly from the way the medieval longbow man practiced. Target bows, Victorian bows, Warbows; all are longbows.

The longbow is the base of modern archery and its popularity is on the increase. How did it happen, what was it for, where is it going, how easy is it for you to take up . . .
