The Glass Cherokee Bow is inspired and based on the classic Cherokee and Eastern woodland hunting bows. This model of bow is the gateway to primitive archery for people that are either just getting started into primitive archery and are not ready to commit to a full custom wood bow order. Or, for those used to shooting traditional fiberglass bows and just want to dip their toe in the primitive pool. The true benefits of these brown fiberglass/maple laminate bows is that they require very little maintenance, can be left strung up for long periods of time, have no moisture concerns, and are at a great enough value that you can use it and abuse it. While they are not true primitive bows, the form and function is very similar.
These bows are 66 inches long and the weights are measured at a 28 inch draw, but they are safe for all draw lengths out to 31″. This model of bow comes with a 1 year warranty. These really are more of a one-size-fits-all type of a bow that have more than sufficient power to take down big game animals. They come with a dacron string and the classic Cherokee inspired diamond nocks (not approved for fast flight string materials). The handles are comfortably rounded with a leather wrapped design. These are made to embrace a more primitive style of shooting off-knuckle and can be shot either left or right handed.
