PLEASE ONLY STRING YOUR BOW USING A DOUBLE LOOP LONGBOW STRINGER, OR YOU WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY
If a bow is marked for example 40#@28", max draw 29" this bow would be suitable for someone with a draw length up to 28" NOT over 28."
If you had a draw length over the stated 28", then the bow is NOT suitable for you.
Even though the bow may state the max draw 29", this means that a safety margin has been built into the bow for the odd occasion when you may unknowingly draw slightly more.
It is not designed for you to draw over 28" continually.
If it is found that this is the case, you will invalidate the warranty, and no repair or replacement will be offered.
Headed by Pip Bickerstaffe, Bickerstaffe Bows are one of the leading manufacturers of English Longbows in the UK.
Run by a small group of dedicated bowyers with love for the Traditional side of the sport, they have a deep understanding and appreciation of what goes into making a truly beautiful English Longbow.
The workshop is situated in Kegworth, not 40 miles from the Major Oak in Sherwood Forest. Bickerstaffe also supplies English Longbow Making Kits so you can make your own.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT use stringers which have a pocket that fits over the top nock as these exert pressure on the nock beyond the wood which can lead to broken nocks, which will not be replaced under warranty!
