Hot cars can kill your bow!
Never leave your bow strung in a hot car – it can delaminate.
See more below…
We use quality commercial heat-cured adhesives for all Bodnik Bows. The problem is, if that bow ever gets heated to a temperature higher than it was when it was cured on the bow form, the adhesive can fail.
If you leave a laminated bow strung in a hot car or truck, chances are very good that it will be damaged.
Bodnik bows are sold all over the world and we normally hear about the occasional delamination from hot countries like: Spain, Brazil and Thailand. It is obvious that the problem is more about keeping the bows out of excessive heat than a problem in manufacturing, but still we want to make our bows as perfect as possible. We want you to trust your Bodnik Bow!
Always protect your Bodnik bow – any laminated bow – from excessive heat.
To make our bows the best in the world we always look for ways to improve them. To resolve the delamination issue we tested our bows by subjecting them to extreme temperatures and humidity in our climatic exposure test cabinet.
