Information on the draw force curve of the New Bodnik Longbow


Thank you very much for all the positive feedback you’ve sent us on our new Bodnik Longbow. Since the launch a few weeks ago, we have received fantastict feedback from many of our friends in archery, bow hunters and of course our Bearpaw dealers regarding the Bodnik Longbow.

We have supplemented our online data for the Bodnik Longbow with data on just how smoth the draw is on the Bodnik Longbow. We have published a draw force curve chart and graph to show you what to expect from these smooth yet powerful longbow limbs.

The bamboo cores in the limbs combined with our special longbow limb design provides a very comfortable and smooth draw all the way to 30 inches  –  even though this longbow is only 66″ nock to nock! Of course, you can draw the Bodnik Longbow much further if you need to. All Bodnik Bows have been thouroughly tested in our testing facility where we have drawn the limbs to an amazing 40 inches with no damage! Our Bodnik Bows can handle this, no problem!

However, as you can see in the draw force chart, the Bodnik Longbow gains approx. 4 lbs per inch for draw lengths of 31 – 33 inches. The draw is smooth all the way to 30″ and then gains weight a bit faster between 31″ – 34″. Rest assured though, these bows are safe to draw this far. We guarantee it, and back them for 30 years!

Our Recommendation:

The Bodnik Longbow is a perfect longbow choice for draw lengths up to a maximum of 30 inches.

Of course, this Bodnik Bow is covered by our legendary 30 Year Guarantee!

We’re thrilled to introduce our Bodnik Longbow!
With our Bodnik Longbow – We believe we have succeeded in creating longbow perfection.

We have been working on the Bodnik Longbow for quite some time. Our goal was to design and manufacture a longbow above all others. A longbow that was comfortable in the hand and even more than that, a natural extension of your hand. Our unique grip design ensures that natural on-target point ability. The limbs sweep back from the riser in a mild deflexing arc and then sweep back forward to optimize the power in the limbs and transfer it to the arrow. The Bodnik Longbow with its efficient limb design shoots arrows flat and fast. We carefully designed our limbs, riser, and overall bow length to comply with the requirements of all national and international federations so this bow would qualify as a true “longbow” for all competitions and championships. Design is critically important, but without quality materials a great design is worthless. Here at Bodnik Bows we use only the best materials! The limbs of the Bodnik Longbow are crafted with Bodnik Bamboo cores under our powerful and perfectly transparent Crystal Clear Bearpaw Powerglass. The crystal clear fiberglass allows the natural beauty of the bamboo laminations to show through perfectly. Our skilled bowyers are trained to grind the limbs to our tight specifications. This ensures limbs with a smooth draw and a powerful cast. We rely on our bowyers and their attention to detail to make each bow a true work of art. We’re proud of the work they do. Try the New Bodnik Longbow yourself – it is a bow you can be proud to shoot, and who knows? Perhaps you will win some competitions with yours! After all – if you’re going to shoot a longbow – why not shot a beautiful longbow that is stable, balanced, forgiving, and fast?

The Bodnik Longbow is all of that and more – it will help you shoot your best!
