  1. Hello there I left a message with you before so thanks for the swift reply. Your war bows I’m only 5’5 in height and wanted a bow that has at least a draw weight of 80 would that still be possible as well as what range does a bow of 80 lbs have on it also due to this outbreak are you still taking orders sorry for any inconvenience

    1. Hi Nathan, I don’t know whether Trevor at Shire Archery got back to you but here’s my input: The range of this bow will have as much to do with the arrow as it does the bow. The conundrum is this – the heavier the bow you have the heavier the arrow gets both in terms of spine, which affects weight and diameter of shaft which also affects weight. A well made 50lb longbow can therefore shoot a 320- 330 grain 5/16″ diameter arrow as far as an 80lb longbow will shoot a 500+ grain 3/8″ arrow. I made my wife a 35lb longbow with a Purpleheart core and using a barrelled or bobtailed arrow at 220-240 grains she can outshoot for distance many men shooting bows up to double that weight. Also the heavier a bow gets in poundage, the thicker and heavier the limbs are moving through the air, thus creating more wind resistance. So it’s best to resist the temptation of going for a big heavy bow if you want to get distance. On the other hand if you want to shoot through armour plate at short distance then that’s another story!
