Key Features Solid Hickory Legolas Style Longbow You will not find this unique bow anywhere else! Great for target practice, SCA events, Hunting and Archery competitions How to Tell your Draw Length and Draw Weight: Draw Length: Your Draw Length measurement is how far you draw the bow back before releasing it. To find your draw length stand and extend both arms out in front of you, measure from your chest to the end of your middle finger and subtract two inches. This will find your approximate draw length. Draw Weight: This is how heavy (in pounds) you will be pulling the bow back at your specified draw length. If you choose 30# and have a draw length of 28 inches, when you pull the bow back to 28 inches you will be pulling 30#. Draw Weight is hard to determine if you are a beginner, 30# is good to start with and is great for target practice. Usually 40# and higher are recommended for Hunting.
Also, it is very important that you never pull the bow back farther than the specified draw length. For example, if your bow says 40# at 28 inches, this means the bow has been tested up to 28 inches only. Most bow breaks come from users pulling the bow back too far.
