DRAW WEIGHT

Description

This bow model is stylization of Sasanian bows in our author’s vision.
Such recursive bows of medium length  with long horns also similar to medieval Mongolian or Yuan bows.  Even medieval Hungarian bows have much in common, it’s due to fact that all this bow types originate from “Hun” bows.

by Rolf Baumann on Traditional Bow Simurgh

The Simurgh is very beautful, looks authentic like a weapon from an ancient period. So it would be great for LARP or re-enactments or medievil fares or something like that. The tips and arrow rests are nicely reinforced with horn inlays. This adds to the quality look. It is also rather light weight, aournd 450 gramms so no problem to carry around all day. The draw experience is awesome, no stacking, very smooth. As is the release: the bow allows for a clean release, nice groupings and accurate shootings. With 10 grain per pound bamboo arrows, I was able to achieve 180 feet per second arrow speeds. The handle is the best for european hands: not too small as are many asian bows, but wide enough and deep enough for a solid, confident grip on the bow. The leather wrap around the handle helps very much with the good feeling and it also prevents sweat from the bow hand getting to the wood. So I can very much recommend this bow!
