Mountain Monarch (Deposit)


SKU: 1010-1 Category:


Introducing our new Mountain Monarch recurve.  Following our full curl theme that started years ago with the “Desert Big Horn Recurve”, this bow is an instant classic. This 50’s style recurve comes in 60 or 64 inch length in your choice of our custom woods.  Any draw weight at any draw length, a true traditionalist dream.

Speed of a recurve, feel of a longbow….Perfect match made in heaven….We mean Big Jim’s custom bow work shop here in Albany, Georgia.  These bows are personally hand crafted by Big Jim, call in and speak with the bowyer himself to get a slice of heaven in your hands. He will guide you through the process of selecting woods, weight, length, grip, horn over lays,etc.   Search through an incredible amount of one-of-kind wood veneers in our inventory, and ask about woods not advertised on our website.  We have all sorts of hidden custom options not mentioned on our website, a phone call truly is the only way to find out what kind of secret options Big Jim has up his sleeve.

Whether you choose a 1 or 2 piece Monarch, with or with out special horn overlays, and or snake skinned limbs you will no doubt be satisfied.

The waiting list is still approximately one year, the wait is worth it.
