23366Re: In need of improved gear
- Aug 20, 2007My understanding is that wooden horsebows don't work well; wood just
simply won't stand up to the amount of stretching/compression that
takes place in the working sections of the bow. Hence, the use of
horn, sinew, and bamboo, and wood was only used for the core and
I intend to someday give it a try, but have expectations of nearly
immediate bow failure.
