Bickerstaffe Basic Longbow 50lb @ 28inches

Bickerstaffe Basic Longbow made of Hickory, Purplheart and Lemonwood. I’ve owned this bow for about 13 years from new. However, I haven’t used it for 8 years due mainly to shooting recurve.

The bow was last strung a year ago at my local Quicks branch to check it before getting ready to sell it but then I was unsure if I wanted to get back into longbow shooting. The bow registered 55lb @ 28inch. Sadly shoulder issues have forced me to stop all archery.

This is a great bow and although it was hardly used I did shoot a few Yorks in local competitions so it is good out to 100yds. Never dry shot. 

Price includes hardcase seen in the photo.

COLLECT ONLY from Honiton in Devon. I could meet up part way if travelling from further away. Serious archers only please as this bow requires the usual longbow TLC including a good warmup prior to shooting. I have no means to test before purchase unless you have time to visit my local Quicks that does have a range, but this would be subject to the staff having the time to let us on the range. 

I’m selling all my longbow kit including arrows matched to this bow, spares and accessories such an arrow making equipment.
