The Mongolian style is a more than 1000 year-old-style. The Mongolian bows are always symmetric bows. Their specialty is, that they have string-padsfor stopping the string rapidly after the shot. Its aim is that, that the arrow earns a higher impulse, and a higher starting velocity than at the other bows, which have no string-pads. The bows are composite bows. They consist of 3 main parts:
The 2 end-parts, which are made out of wood (normally we use ash, cherry and pear) the hilt and the reflex-curves, which are made out of fiberglass covered by cow-leather.
The string is made out of Dacron-which is a stretchable plastic, and we use Kevlar for the string bandage. At the hilt, they have a wooden plate, to make the bows surface smoother for the arrow.
Length of the bow when strung:
Length of the bow unstrung:
Draw-weight range: 25 pounds 70 pounds
Maximum draw length: 29″
The archers opinion:
The bows are very good sport and hunting bows. They can be used even for competitions, but to tell the truth, they are a bit slower, than the top competitions bows. They are quite reliable.
Suggestion for draw-weight selections:
– for target-shooting, we suggest weaker ones (up to 45 pounds / 28 inches)
– for hunting, we suggest stronger ones (from 45 pounds / 28 inches).Please feel free to inquire about these products. There are more color options than you can see pictured..
