Rowan’s Kids bow is made from dyed Poplar and was made for 5 year old Rowan from Ohio. Requested by is mother as a Christmas present to replace his fiberglass bow from a national retail store. This bow will shoot arrows that will stick to a target not just bounce off. “Rowan took two shots with his new bow and I went and got the owner and bow tech to come down and watch him. Almost half of his shots were bullseyes. They were so impressed with him and boy was I a proud mama.” To see more pictures of the bow click here.
Angela’s Custom Recurve Bow
One day I received a message from Angela asking if we had a traditional bow that was considered an entry level custom bow. Well we didn’t have one so we designed a new bow just for Angela. The length is 64 inches. Since we were making hers we also made a 62″ bow that is like Angela’s but 2 inches shorter.
Ken’s Custom Recurve
Ken from Florida called me and asked if we could make him an “artsy” unique custom bow. We came up with this design for him. The bow is made from Walnut, Zebrawood, Padauk and Maple. The bow is 48 # @28″ and is 62 inches long.
Daniel’s Custom Longbow
Daniel ordered this bow through one of our distributors South by Southwest in Idaho Springs, Colorado. Daniel bought one of our Series II bows a couple months ago and thought it was the smoothest bow that he had shot. So he decided to order a 90# Longbow from Smokey River Bows. He said that his new bow was just as smooth feeling if not smoother than his new Series II Takedown Recurve.
Richards Purple Camo Recurve
Richard from Australia order a 64″ Purple Camo Takedown Recurve and a dozen matching arrows. After receiving the bow some of his comments to us were the bow is a work of art and fits perfectly in my hand. Your customer service has been outstanding and the updates with posting photos is a great tool for people to see the work that goes into the process. If this bow meets my expectations then I will definitely be buying another!!!
Rich’s Survival Bow
Rich ordered a Custom Survival from us, he wanted a colorful 50 pound bow for his trip into the back country in Wyoming. So we made him a colorful one of a kind 48″ Takedown Bow. The bow is made from Bloodwood, Purpleheart and Yellowheart.
Just thought customers should know that buying from Smokey River Bows, you’re getting more than just a bow. My experience with Greg was wonderful. He was polite and humble on the phone. Made the decision to stay or keep shopping real easy. I was looking for a pink camo recurve for my 10 year old daughter for Christmas and there was only like 2 weeks left. After telling me that the shop that had the wood for the pink camo bow had burnt and that particular bow was unavailable, Greg had another plan. With different wood and a streak of brilliance he took on the endeavor. Operating somewhat out of the norm for him, he fashioned that bow and had it arrive at my house Christmas Eve day. Needless to say, I had one happy girl on Christmas morning. There was one happy dad as well. Thanks Greg for your diligence, tenacity, professionalism, skill, kindness and for going the extra mile for a customer in need. This bow superseded my expectations. WOW!!!!!!!!
Tads’ Custom Youth Bow
Tad ordered a bow for his youngest daughter he found the wood that he liked and ordered the wood to build the bow. This bow was a challenge to build. there were just a couple pieces of wood long enough to build the riser. We put a design down on paper and sent the drawing to Tad for his approval. He liked what he saw so we began to build the bow. This is how it turned out.
