Kees Traditions also has excellant bows at great prices and a life-time
warranty on longbows for SCA members. Absolutely beautiful bows. I have a
cherry, bamboo backed #35@28", that shoots really sweet and cost $195. They
have more simple bows that are cheaper and much more intricate bows that
cost a little more of course. A friend has a zebra wood and purple heart
wood 45#@28" longbow that shoots amazingly fast and is really gorgeous and
cost $225 delivered.
You can reach them at octtazae_traditions@...
. They travel a lot but
still respond very quickly to email. They also have an ebay store, but I
usually just give them a call. They really know their stuff!

Arrows for Target Toruneys

Thank you all for your helpful tips on arrows, for SCA use, now I have
been on the groups website and looked in the links section, and I want
to know if anyone has a good resource for Good wooden longbows?
I have seen 3 rivers archery, and self bow, I am looking for a relativly
inexpensive hickory long bow, preferably with a leather grip and an
arrow shelf. For under 200 $, idealy closer to 100 would be nice, but I
dont want to sacrifice price for quality. As I am new to SCA archery I
want to start cheap and then decide after I get in, if I want to get
more expensive and buy a better bow or arrows....
