Dave Mead of Mead Longbows taken care of the hard job of tillering the bow. Take part in the construction of a UNIQUE composite bow and build your own with this kit. It is very simple yet rewarding. Assemble it, do some finish sanding/filing on siyahs and customize to your personal taste. 

This bow kit offers a frustration free way to enter the world of bow making.  There is still some room for shaping on handle and siyahs if you wish. This will help the bow to reach full potential as a customized tool for yourself. The bow is fully functional, tillered, and can be used as is once assembled if you choose not to do any other shaping. I do not offer custom work/specs on kit or u-finish bows. It is essentially a project I start, and you complete. An affordable way to enjoy one of these unique bows.

Kit includes all materials needed to build into a solid shooting bow.  (Decorative bindings and takedown materials are not provided for this price.  These materials are not needed to use the bow.)

  • Recurve Hunting Model up to 45lbs pull/draw weight

TheDeflex recurve model is the “Trad Style Cousin” of my “wild” horsebow.  This new design resembles a deflex recurve and the ancient Assyrian style composite bow.  It’s smooth, stable, quick pointing, and forgiving.  Efficient, well balanced, and quick!  Stable, yet still compact!  This one-of-a-kind, compact powerhouse will get the job done.  The forward grip provides a great transition for traditional archers/hunters that want to get their hands on a unique, primitive bow.  Great for stands, blinds, thick brush, and general archery use.  No backing, no laminations – just bamboo and wood!  Get that vintage traditional feel with a primitive quietness.  Super light in the hand, smooth with no stack finger pinch or handshock.  Very powerful with hard hitting speed to take down any game animal in North America.  Said by many archers during this past year’s testing, “This new bow is well mannered and easy to shoot consistently.  The forward grip and deflexed riser makes for an easy pointing bow.”

Draw length on all bows I make is measured from the back of the bows handle (back being side that faces away from archer) to inside of the nock of the arrow.  All bows are around 49-54 inches when strung, depending on draw length.

All bows are made to be shot left or right handed.
