The Ready for Battle Horsebow is designed to replicate the composite bows historically used by horseback riders like the Mongolian hordes in the 12th and 13th centuries. This 119 cm-long bow features a fibreglass core and a soft suede cover, ensuring realism and durability. With a draw weight ranging from 24-26 lbs, it's crafted to withstand extended use without excessive force that could harm opponents. Additionally, the leather grip adds a stylish touch while improving your grasp.

It's important to note that this bow is handcrafted and may have minor imperfections like roughness or fibreglass strands. These should be carefully removed before use. The handmade bowstring may also have a few loose strands, which can be tidied up with a controlled flame, but caution is advised not to overdo it. The bowstring is included with the bow.  If you’re looking for a bow without strands, check out the sanded-down RFB Horsebow Deluxe.

Please be aware that the bow's draw weight ranges from 24-26 lbs, measured with a 28" shaft, and may have a slight variance of +/- 3 lb due to its natural materials. Likewise, its appearance may vary.

Maintenance

When not in use, keep the bow unstrung to increase its life. Store the bow horizontally in order to protect the tips. Do not leave it in the sun for long periods of time, if you do, make sure it cools down before use. Never release the string without an arrow, since the shock of the shot will be absorbed by the bow and might cause damage.

Cleaning

Use a damp cloth to wipe away any dirt from the bow and then wipe dry. Simple as that! The only thing you might have to worry about is the string, which may eventually appear ratty or worn. Replace the string when this happens. String is cheaper than replacing a broken bow from a string snapping!

If you want to increase the life of your string, you can add a little bit of wax. Wax will protect the string from moisture while also keeping the threads together.
