Robin Hood Arrow

I had a fine day out at Tomahawk Archers, last Sunday.

Toward the end of the day, my last customer gave all of us a quite unexpected and spectacular show of skill.  Bruce Gray, of Saline Michigan, was interested in my fir tapered shaft arrows.   We talked about their specs and I encouraged him to try shooting a few.

 Bruce shot a few fir arrows and I suggested he try out my bamboo arrows.   After Bruce shot his 3rd bamboo arrow, we heard a loud crack noise.  I wasn’t sure what happened…I thought he broke one of the knocks.

Bruce said, “Well, I think I have to buy these.”

We all looked up and couldn’t believe our eyes…he shot a Robin Hood!

Wow, everybody in the club had to come over and check out the Robin Hood arrows.  I think it’s pretty rare to Robin Hood wood arrows.   All the guys were impressed and came over to talk to Bruce and see the arrows.

It was the coolest thing and made my day to see it…first hand.  All, I could say was “Wow!”

It was a fine way to end the day.

My 2014 Schedule

Summer is finally here and I plan on going out my local archery clubs for their public shoots. It’s a great way to meet new archers and sell my archery equipment in person. This summer, I’ll be going to Tomahawk Archers.  They’re located in Temperance, Michigan.

They have a real nice club and the folks there are top notch. So if you live near Michigan or Ohio, it would be a great way to try out my longbows and arrows. I always encourage everyone to give them a try…with no pressure to buy!

HPIM0666

I’ll be updating my website and posting more videos and picture galleries of my handmade arrows. I’ve added a new video category, so if you’re interested in seeing examples of my longbows and arrows, they’ll be easy to find.

If you’d like to see how I make my arrows, leave me a comment below and I’ll try to make one of those too.

Traditional Longbows for Kids

Recently, I’ve had many customers ask me about traditional longbows for their kids.  Longbows are simple and real easy to shoot, provided they are the proper draw weight.   It’s not fun for a child to try to pull and shoot a longbow if it’s too hard.   They won’t be very accurate and their confidence will suffer.

My grand daughter just out grew her kids Bear fiberglass bow.  Her Bear bow belonged to her mom (my daughter).   It’s close to 45 years old and still works great, however my grand daughter was ready for a step up.

I had a new English style longbow in my inventory and let her try it.   Boy, she just loved it.   It’s her favorite bow to shoot and she’s very accurate with it.   It’s just the right draw weight.  It’s 35# @28″ and 64″ long.

As she grows, this bow will grow with her.   She isn’t drawing it back fully yet, so I made her shorter arrows for her draw.

Here’s the best part…as she gets stronger and taller, she can still use the same bow, but will only need longer arrows.

So, for the investment of $150, these lighter English longbows are perfect for young archers.    Watch this video of my grand daughter shooting the English longbow and see how accurate and comfortable she is.

I am so proud of her.
