Thunder Child (Deposit)



Click Here For A Slideshow

Our Thunder Child is a somewhat radical reflex deflex design with a forward handle. The Thunder Child will fast become one of your favorite longbows. Designed to allow the shooter to utilize a bow that is 6-8″ shorter than their normal longbow without stacking and finger pinch normally associated with the “Short Bow”. Stable and light on it's feet, the Thunder Child does not lack in performance. Choose either a 1 or 2 piece in this design with all of the same options as our Buffalo model and watch as your friends gather to join in the fun. If you have any questions or if you'd like to order directly from Jim, call 229-420-5669.
