A VERY good buy!
9 out of 9 found the following review helpful

Pros: This is a very good quality traditional wooden style bow and for the price point and represents outstanding value for money. I found this bow to be of surprisingly good quality and good looks, really well constructed and finished and of good weight and balance. Very impressed and I'm likely to try other bows in the Dorfler range in future.

Cons: I can't fault this bow for its price bracket.

Other: Buy bows with confidence from this supplier - well packaged and sent in a very heavy duty thick cardboard tube.
