John Strunk 62” RH Yew Self Bow - 3
« on: March 02, 2023, 08:29:21 AM »
This is an experimental yew string-follow bow made by John Strunk about 10 years ago.  As one might expect from a bow that was purposely designed to be string-follow, it has a very smooth draw and very little hand shock.  However, it is faster than one might expect from a string-follow bow, probably due to the bent recurved limb tips.  It is marked 52# @ 28”, and is still pretty close to that weight, as measured yesterday (2/28/23).  As always with John's bows, the workmanship is flawless.  There are no defects or dings in the bow that I am aware of, but as with all self bows, exercise it carefully before shooting it if it hasn't been shot for a while, and keep in mind that self bows don't last forever.

This is a unique bow, AFAIK.  I doubt if you'll find another one like it in the world.

Due to recent craziness in prices, I am reluctant to give an open ended commitment to pay shipping, but I will cover shipping up to $50.

Terry,
McDave will need to verify, but whenI blow the pictures it looks like the bow has John’s usual 1/2 golf tee shelf.
The broadhead used, regardless of how sharp, is nowhere as important as being able to place it in the correct spot.
