Default 66" longbow

I just got a 66" bamboo Widow LX. I was real worried because its 65# at my draw or more.

But I got it last night and it feels like my 60# zipper, or even lighter. I had to do a double take. I went and put both on a scale and sure enought, the BW is 65#. I guess the Bamboo limbs and core and the overall length makes it smooth enough not to notice. I shot it 30-40 shots in teh garage last night with no problems with a 600 gr arrow.

I love it so far. Its fast. Now I got to see if I can shoot it this weekend.

Whew, glad to hear that you didn't pop a blood vessel or worse.

I didn't realize it was 66"........That seems to be a good complimentary length for a guy your height. I know I won't even look at a longbow under 64" now after trying a bunch.
Me and 64" longbows seem to get along like peanut butter and jelly.

I saw that one on tradgang--very nice looking bow.I think it has the LAG grip.If it was 10lbs lighter,I probably would've jumped on that one
