Those in search of an affordable longbow akin to the Edge with a more traditional slant need look no further, as Old Mountain Archery brings us the "Blade" longbow.
A highlight of red Padauk and Maple separates the Walnut riser core and Dymondwood® heel. Like the Edge longbow, it fits neatly in a medium hand and favors a low wrist. The shelf has a moderately deep cut, though not to center, with a short window that once more favors instinctive shooting.
Unlike its counterpart, the Blade makes use clear fiberglass with ash on the back and belly for its long limbs. Between the two layers of ash sit a maple core with an additional lamination of fiberglass. All said and done, it makes for a bow that handles nicely to 28" and beyond for those that might have a longer than average draw length.
The bow includes a shelf setup as well as a standard B50-type string and string setup. It is also capable of accepting a Fast Flight type string for improved arrow speed.
*In our examination, we found the actual measurement of the bow to be approximately 66".
68"* - Available from 30# to 60# @ 28" - Right or Left Hand
