ILF system

Early in 2009, Mike and Jason were introduced to ILF bows and immediately fell in love.  The ability to mix and match risers and limbs from multiple bowyers just made sense.  So with the urging of good friend Rusty Craine to help with a shoulder problem, the boys went to work on a longbow limb.

Taking the Orion limb as a baseline they began development, building and testing limbs.  After nearly six months of working weekends, they were ready to put the longbow limbs on the market.  Like the rest of the products in our line we look to build a high performance, high quality limb at a price that everybody can afford.  The Epic limb does that and more.  The Epic longbow limb as been joined by the Epic Recurve limb and the Epic Riser.

New for 2011 - Introducing the Legend - ACS ILF limbs - Earlier this year John Havard joined us at Dryad Bows.  John, Jason and Mike have joined forces utilizing the patented ACS limb design for ILF application.  They have been working on design and testing of the new Legend - ACS ILF limbs.

  Now offering the Legend-ACS 4G and the Legend-ACS CG.
