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 fibreglass covered by cow-leather.
The string is made out of â€ždacronâ€-which is a streatchable plastic, and we use â€žcevlarâ€ for the string bandage. At the hilt, they have a wooden plate, to make the bowâ€™s surface smoother for the arrow.
Draw-weight range: 25-65 pound
Draw length : 28 inches
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).
