Default Got My New Longbow Home

Rebel by Fairbow Archery in the Netherlands.

70" / 77.7# @ my 29.5" draw

Shoots darn good.
I intend to get some better pictures, and do a full review as time allows.

I put the handle wrap on it after I shot it some.

The one picture is the first 7 arrows off it.
The first 2 shots were left, but the last 5 were where I wanted them.
Shot from 20 yards

It shoots EASY. I mean this thing is smooth as silk for a longbow.

I'm used to shooting my recurve with my arrows almost dead center center shot,
so it took me those first two to make the adjustment.

Second two, I just aimed that much right, but the last three went right where I pointed them.

I like this fake gator skin handle wrap, but this bow is getting a leather Rebel Flag for a handle wrap as soon as I can get it on.

3under, and string walking, and it's working real good.

The only way I can see to do the flag handle wrap is to disassemble one of these wallets like this one.



Pretty sure I can make it work.

I wanted to get a feel for what the flag handle wrap will look like on it, so I photoshopped one onto it.

I'm still looking for a flag in leather that strikes my fancy.
The wallet colors are kinda bright, but that's the best I've found so far.
If I go with that, I'm definitely gonna tone it down, and age it some right off the bat.

I like that handle wrap idea! I just picked up a Belcher Union Jack, might need to see if I can find a Union Jack handle wrap!

Maybe, but I ain't there yet. Not even close.

I'll be 60 come November 6th.
Remember that. My birthday would be very rewarding with an Arvin Weaver Selfbow in about a 68" & 65 to 70 pound draw weight range.

Not yet. Just been to busy to worry with it, but it's gonna happen sooner or later. I'll post pictures when it does.
