SiegeWorks Creations SWC American LongbowIt's here!!!
I've been waiting on this beauty for a couple of weeks. I can barely contain myself from the excitement and desire to string it and shoot a couple of arrows with it!
Friends, you will just have to be satisfied with a few pictures I took, I want to give this bow the careful and thorough consideration it deserves, and really do it justice. I also have to learn how to use the photo editing program I am using now. Just cropping these shots has taken me a bit of getting used to.
Just s few observations:
Oh golly it is light! It can't be more than a pound at most. Compared to my old Ben Pearson Flame Hunter, or the Browning Compound Cobra, it is absolutely feather light. I'll give you all the details as I review and report, but I can see this becoming an absolute favorite in no time flat.
The bowstring is completely hand made and a work of art in and of itself.
The laminations are seamless, and the finish is eggshell or satin. Either way it complements the bow very nicely.
It is apparent that Dave and Sara at SiegeWork Creations really pride themselves on creating quality bows at very, very reasonable prices.
Update: I am on assignment, and I've got a real bad connection were I am at, and I may not have a decent one until this evening. (8/21) The pics will have to wait until I get back again.
