I mostly shoot recurves and I still have a Robertson flatbow,but the best longbow I ever had was a Stotler Gamebuster.One heckuva an ugly bow but that thing shot so good for me.I really regret getting rid of it.

Well I tried a few and still prefer recurves but to pick one longbow I would have to say a chek mate longhorn.

My current favorite longbow is the one I glued up on my friend's form and finished out on my patio.

An Art Adkins that I helped build. Like Arthur, when you've got your own labor in it, the bow becomes something special.

My all-time favorite is my Chek-Mate Crusader, 66", [email protected], yew limbs and cocobolo riser. I've owned and shot this bow longer than any I've ever owned--going on 6 or 7 years now, I think. No idea how many longbows I owned before I got it, much less how many I shot. (had 30-something personal bows at one time)

Others I've shot and liked were Roy Hall's and Rick Anderson's. Several others that have gotten a lot of attention in the last few years that I want to try out if I can ever get a chance--don't have nearly as much time to play at shoots as I used to.
