Traditional Turkish laminated recurve bow G/296


Draw-weight range: 30-65 pounds



New laminated bow made with new materials, more flexible than the E-fiberglass. Very accurate and smooth to draw.

The base of the bow was made of maple wood. It is strengthened by 2 synthetic layers on both sides. The outer layers are whitish, transparent, the inner are brown. The siyahs were made of ash wood. Red leather cover on the handle. Brown polyester thread bandage. Particularly fast, accurate bow with long draw length. It can be drawn smoothly.

They have a very special design (see pictures), and when the string is not on the bow they form a real “C”, which will be bent in the other direction, and this provides quite dynamic attributes for theese bows

Turkish laminated recurve

‘C’- shape or bent forward arms

Briefly speaking I can say that with relatively soft materials like horn and sinew, the C-shape works better, but with stiffer materials such as the fiberglass, carbon, the bent forward arms are much better in case of a traditional recurve bow. There were bent forward arms bows among the old horn bows as well, where the handle angle was quite big, for example in the Avar, Hunnish types.

Csaba Grozer Users instructions

When stringing the bow, the lower end of it mustn’t touch the ground and the upper end must be held and pressed under the bezel. The middle of the hilt should lean up on the inside part of the thigh, while the lower end of the bow above the bezel should lean up on the outside of your lower leg.
Before using set the string in the middle of the siyahs.
In the course of using the bow keep that part upwards where you can see the name Grozer.

Turkish recurve bow 

The C-shaped and composite bows should be strung crouching, the bow pressed to the knees.

Before using set the string in the middle of the siyahs. If the siyahs twisted during the stringing of the bow, they have to be set to the middle as well by twisting it to the opposite direction.

If the C-shaped bows are strung improperly its assymetry can be too much, so it should be twisted to the other direction to get the appropriate assymetry of the limbs. (especially with the Laminated and composite bows)
