The Northern Styk is a reverse handle ASL (American Semi Longbow) or better known as Hill Style Longbow. This bow with it's reverse handle yields a near torqueless shooting experience while still being a traditional d-shaped longbow design. It has unmatched forgiveness, great cast and quickly becomes a part of the archer.
The Northern Styk is ready to guide you to many traditional adventures, are you ready?
A standard Northern Styk will be made with colored glass of your choice on the back and belly, a beautiful Osage riser and 4 layers of bamboo for the cores, giving it a silky smooth draw cycle and great cast. This bow throws an arrow with great cast and its performance excels with heavy arrows. All Northern Styk's will come standard with a leather grip and reinforced tips, built with tip wedges, to allow for use of modern sting materials. All bows shipped with a D-97 string with wool silencers & double adjustable tie nocks.
Glass Colors available:
Black, Green, White, Carmel, Dark Brown, Red, Gray, & Clear (clear is an upgrade)
Riser wood options:
I stock many different woods and have access to just about anything you wish. See the Wood Options page for the choices I keep in stock.
G-10 is also an option and allows me to cut the shelf to center, which provides a large window of tune and makes the bow very forgiving. G-10 also adds a significant amount of mass.
The Northern Styk starts at $800and can be upgraded to clear glass for an additional $100 and add beautiful veneers for the veneer price, which can be found on the Wood Options page.
Other upgrades available include, exotic wood species, phenolic accents added to risers, etc. Riser wood pricing on the Wood Options page.
***G-10 risers (whether in a 1 pc or take-down) allow me to cut the shelf to center. If you choose a G-10 riser cutting to center will be standard, however you can choose to leave it 5/32" outside center like a wood riser if you wish.***
Cutting to center drastically opens up your window of tune making the bow much more forgiving of any form flaws or variations.
Draw Weight Tolerance
I do a very good job at hitting draw weight but in order to achieve optimum performance please allow plus or minus 1# of your requested draw weight. Most often I will hit the weight you request but grinding down to the desired weight, as some others do, is not ideal. It hinders performance and can hurt the integrity of the bow. Thus my policy is that if I miss weight by more than 1# I rebuild the bow and hit the weight you requested . Example: if you order a bow 45# @ 28", please allow 44#-46#.
