 Ishi style bow 55" long 54 pound draw at 28" with real sinew string- SOLD  
 Bow with sinew string and 12 ply endless fast flight string with 4 arrows

  . True to form in every way (with a lenticular cross section) except the tips are a little more narrow than a true replica and I did the sinew over 3 weeks. I strung the bow backwards and put on 2 layers. A week later took off the string and added 1.5 more layers. 2 days later put the string back on backwards to let the sinew do it's work. A week after that one more layer. The bow is sealed with 3 coats of one application of bear grease and 3 coats of shellac over that.  After 80 or so shots it maintains 4.75" of reflex. total weight is 13.9 oz. Just under 2" at the widest near handle. The bow is 55" nock to nock and has a full draw of 28" where it weighs 54 pounds. This time I used a 12 strand endless fast flight string with a 5.25" brace height. This is the best performing Ishi style bow I have built to date. The arrows included are birch and perfectly matched for this bow. Ishi style turkey tail fletch wrapped with sinew and painted with red ocher and charcoal. Modern target tips. I used 2 of the arrows included to test the bow. Weight 579 grains(almost 11 gpp). Average arrow speed of 10 shots(after throwing out the fastest and slowest) 181.5 feet per second.
