Bodnik Bows – Strong Quality and Durability.

Bodnik Bows is a valued member of the Bearpaw Products Group – where all the designs of Bearpaw Products begin their life – Henry Bodnik and Christoph Unger collaborate on the design, materials, looks, physics, and the quality of each bow design. Bodnik Bows have become world renowned as top end bows. They have been made to their own strong quality guidelines since the beginning and according to American standards for over a decade in their own bow workshop.

Master Bowyer Christoph Unger who has a real passion for archery supervises the team of production bow makers. The bowyers make the bows not only for a living but also because of a passion. Each and every bow is painstakingly crafted by this skilled bowyer team, who produce more then 4000 glass laminated bows in small batches of each series every year. An exchange of know how with bow builders in the US takes place once in a while, the close links are maintained between them as many of the original team were trained in the States – an association that is ongoing to the benefit of all involved.

Each of the Bodnik Bows is handmade and comparable to customised quality, even the most inexpensive models profit from experience and passion. The woods are selected for aesthetics and material performance, combined with beautiful bow design to give each bow its individual characteristics and high performance regardless of the selection. The work of the limbs and the performance of the bow have all the properties that are expected of a good bow. The glass laminate which is used can guarantee the special quality and efficiency of the bows. So much so, that world renowned shooter Byron Ferguson appreciatively said:

Bodnik Bows are great!”
