I designed this after I acquired a bow actually made by Howard Hill himself! American Longbow has different tapers than the Union Jack. It stays true to the Howard Hill and Bob Stotler formulas. People think the Union Jack Longbow and American Longbow are the same, but they’re not. They’re similar. Union Jack has tapers my dad worked out after several years of trial and error. The American Longbow is true to the actual one Howard Hill himself designed in the late 40’s, early 50’s.
An overall length, starting at
64” for great performance and “no stack at the back”.
The American Longbow comes with tip overlays to accommodate Fast Flight string and has hand-stitched, leather grip.
Build time is currently 10-12 weeks.
