Japanese bow Yumi

The bow I am shooting here is called a Daikyu, the standard full lenght yumi. Made with Madake bamboo and hardwood. The core consists of multiple strips of hardwood and bamboo.

The drawweight can be ordered between 30lbs to 70lbs or 13kg to 33kg.

The bamboo is fire hardened over coals. This reduces weight and adds stiffness to the bamboo. Glued with ropes and wedges. These bows have the string on the right side of the bow for thumbring and thumbglove shooting.
