any opinions, leon stewart long bows
Thinking of trying a leon stewart 3 piece longbow. any opinions on his bows would be helpful. Shooting a tree stick, and 21st century longbows. Only experience. Have to drop down a few lbs. Want a nice shooting bow.
Have you asked over on Leatherwall? Lot of guys over there will have shot/owned/traded off one or more...
Don’t think I’ve ever heard an unkind word about them...
hey doc...Stewart is recognized as one of the best builders of an RD longbow. so if that is what you want....you probably can't go wrong.
i've shot a couple good ones that are talked about in the same sentence as Stewart. I would caution you to shoot something similar before purchase. Claims of "No Hand shock" is a bit exaggerated, IMO.
i'm not saying that these Stewarts or this design isn't one heck of a bow- they are...but you have to like that design. Stewart, Berry, Liberty, Omega, Toelke, 21st century and a bunch of others i'm forgetting are all in that category
I owned one for a while. Leon makes a nice bow but it does have a unique feel to the draw that I did not care for. I would shoot one before I invested that much money on a bow.
i believe there are a lot of bows in the same price range as a stewart 3 piece I would try and get to a shoot and try different bows, lots of companies have a try before you buy also
