Your prey is almost within range, tentative as she catches a whiff of something in the air. You have covered yourself in the dirt of the forest and smell more like pine than person, but the deer still seems uncertain. She steps forward and you pull back the string on your loaded Flatbow. This deer will feed you for the rest of the week, so you are careful as you take aim. You mustn’t miss your target if you are to eat.

 

With a sharp ‘thwap!’ your arrow hits its mark, clean and perfect. A painless end to a noble creature...and your dinner.

STRING

 

The bow comes with the following string:

 

WP2817 Bow String - 156cm / 61"

 

All our bow strings are made from several strands of Dacron, a synthesised polyester with a little stretch. They come waxed and wrapped in polyester thread at both ends to form loops and in the center to form a nocking point.

 

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.

 

Strings may eventually appear ratty or worn. Replace the string when this happens. String is cheaper than replacing a broken bow from a string snapping!
