received a text from jim belcher of bivouac bows Tuesday asking for my address so he could ship my new Union Jack takedown out. Him and I worked out a trade over the summer for one of my vintage Howard Hill longbows. i also had a large roll of the vintage mosquito netting with the old school Camo pattern as part of the deal. I picked that up somewhere in my travels. It’s the same stuff Schafer incorporated in their recurve and longbow limbs for years until they Ran out of that Camo pattern. I always thought it was slick so I was finally able to dig a roll up along the way. Anyways, big brown dropped that box off this morning and I must say I was a little blown away with how this bow turned out. It is absolutely flawless and so meticulously crafted. The takedown system is nothing short of perfection. It’s a perfect fit with zero slop. The finish is perfect. The bow sites up perfectly straight and there is no edge wave in the limbs whatsoever. It is perfection. I was able to sling a few arrows before work and man this thing rips an arrow. It is one of the highest performing hill styles I’ve had in my hands I think. I need to run it through the chronograph to confirm my suspicion. Jim is a great guy to work with and I honestly must admit that this is the one bow that I haven’t had any experience with. It’s amazing what he can do with a string follow design. Couldn’t be happier!
