Our Vintage Hill style bows are shaped after the early bows by famous bowyers of days passed. Extremely narrow, (26-30 mm, just over an inch) at the widest point to just under half an inch at the string groove.
Up to 5 layers of tempered bamboo in front of the hardwood lightweight riser. NO bamboo goes over the fades on the riser. (Did we mention vintage look?) This is all wedged in between Gordons Bo-Tuff ULS glass. The best there is.
Straight glue-up, so when you receive the bow, it will have a slight stringfollow to help you with a smooth and forgiving draw and shot. Making this narrow lightweighed bow smooth and a joy to shoot. We have also started to produce A Backset version of our stringfollow Rebel. we glue those with a two inch backset. making the backset more agressive, and even more hard hitting.
The nocks are re-enforced with a thin sliver of horn, and tiny, really small. Not for the fainthearted. Don't stump 'm in the dirt and break 'm.
The grip is per sec straight. no locater, no pistol, just straight and narrow, giving you pressure in the hand where it should be. Upon your request covered in a glued on, reverse polished leather. Nice to hold.
High gloss varnish. made by dipping in a 2K varnish, or a 2k sprayed on satin matte finish.
The Rebel comes with a white fastflight double looped string.
We are proud of our Rebel and make it for you with an eye on the quality and the details.
