I am looking into getting a D shpe when strung longbow and some wood arrows. bows I am looking at a one piece around 37-38# what brand of bows meets the requirements for this class for the shoots. Thanks Cecil
I am going to shoot the longbow class. I am interested in shooting the IBO and maybe some more. not sure which shoots i will be able to shoot. just dont wont to buy a bow and find out i cannot enter and shoot it.
One or two piece longbow and wood arrows can shoot that class. I am having a 68" one piece long bow (the Dingo) made by Stalker Bows to shoot STRD class next year. Not the longbow class. But, I like the bow because it has a riser like a recurve and therefore is more in line with what I have been shooting. But, if you want a "real longbow," there are apparently many great ones. If I were shooting that class, I would call Dave Wallace, a stunning shooter, and all the chatter is that is bows are spectacular.
Any longbow that makes the D profile will be acceptable at nearly any event in the US. About any one or two piece longbow with reflex/deflex limbs will also be acceptable at IBO events. NFAA has gone hog wild and about any one, two or three piece bow on which the string does not touch the limb will qualify, even with an Olympic recurve riser.The Texas Longbow Championship requires very close to the Howard Hill design. - lbg
