General discussions. Politics, scuttlebutt, whatever: you're getting married, changing jobs, got a gripe or a compliment, dying to get out with the bow etc.....

Bow Identification.

#1 Post by greybeard » Wed Mar 27, 2019 2:13 pm

One of our club members bought a couple of bows off a trade table whilst in America for an archery tournament,

Although it may be a long shot he was wondering if someone may have seen information of this bowyer on the internet.

The bow appears to be quite well made, most likely by an independent bowyer. The markings on the handle read Delta “17” 253 35#. The core of an unknown timber has a clear glass back and belly.

"And you must not stick for a groat or twelvepence more than another man would give, if it be a good bow.
For a good bow twice paid for, is better than an ill bow once broken.

""Bows from the Little Delta "" was something from Glen St Charles era and associated with Fred Bear too.
Maybe a commemorative copy by some body, did TBM do a pass around bow once ?
