Black Hunter Longbow on Ebay

#1 Post by matt61 » Sat Aug 24, 2019 7:14 pm

Hi all
Have been looking at a cheap ($135.00) Chinese made 60" takedown longbow on Ebay and
I noticed in the pictures advertising it that the limbs appear to be of different lengths.
Would that be an issue as it looks like one limb is about 3 to 4 inches longer than the other. :roll:
This is the Ebay advert number 163355656091.
Thanks
Matt

No opinions or thoughts on the limb length difference. :?: :?: :?:
I have thought of the Japanese Yumi bows.

I hesitated replying to this as I can't resist saying no-one in their wildest dreams could think that bow was a longbow, surely! To me the limbs look even length and in the photos of the bow hanging by the pivot point of the handle it looks to be hanging at the half way point length wise. Photos at times can make things look different from what they actually are. I think it looks normal Matt.

Must say they look like they are even length to me.

Not sure the quality but my guess (unsubstantiated) is that if you aren't going to overdraw it you'll probably get some decent service out of it.

Still, probably best not to get too attached to it :lol:

Cheers

Thanks for the replies, as for calling it a longbow in the advert they call it an everything bow :lol:.
as they do in Chinese adverts because they think it looks impressive :roll: :roll: .
I shot with a guy at an ABA shoot a few weeks ago and he was shooting the recurve model which
uses the same riser and it looked pretty good and shot really well. Said he paid $195 for it delivered.
I have a short draw only 26 1/2 so should be safe there :wink: and thought of using it for shooting
carp, cheap clunker to chuck in the canoe :biggrin: and not worry to much about.

I think it should do that job well.
