The new Shadow ILF Recurve is finally here!

30185-02-Penthalon-Riser-ILF-ShadowFinally! For too long, our Bearpaw dealers and customers have been asking us to produce a quality ILF (International Limb Fitting System) bow. However we wanted to get everything perfected before we released our ILF bow, and now it is time.

When bow manufacturers produce risers and limbs based on the well-known ILF system (International Limb Fitting System) it guarantees that no matter who produced the limbs and risers, they are all completely interchangeable. Archers can mix and match limbs and risers from many manufactures to create their own special bow.

We’re pleased to present our new ILF recurve, the Penthalon Shadow!

Our new riser materials are heavy Micarta and black Actionwood wonderfully designed and constructed to offer the best combination of beauty and functionality.

The Shadow’s riser weighs an impressive weight of approximately 650 grams! It is rock solid and the weight offers the archer more stability in every shot. The grip on the Shadow is super comfortable and offers a very natural hand placement and the weight in the riser does a super job of eliminating any hand shock!

The limbs for the Shadow are constructed of classic black fiberglass for both performance and because they complement the smokey dark colors of the riser for the Penthalon Shadow.

Of course, the Penthalon Shadow can be shot with any standard high-performance bowstring. To get the best performance from the Penthalon Shadow we highly recommend our Henry Bodnik Whisper Strings. This will ensure that your bow is always “whisper quiet”!
