The Mongolian style is a more than 1000 year-old-style. The Mongolian bows are always symmetric bows. They have â€žstring-padsâ€ for stopping the string rapidly after the shot. Thus 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 â€žDacronâ€-which is a stretchable plastic, and we use â€žKevlarâ€ for the string bandage. At the hilt, they have a wooden plate, to make the bowâ€™s surface smoother for the arrow.

Length of the bow unstrung: 141 cm
Draw-weight range: 25 pounds â€“ 70 pounds

The archerâ€™s opinion:
The bows are very good sport and hunting 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..
