"This semi longbow is beautiful! Shoots like crazy and has some serious speed. When in doubt, Go to the workshop and shoot some."

What a smashing bow! and I mean that as Hard hitting! This bow over performs my other bows. I have the Backset version and it seems to harness much more power than my older Rebel. I use 11 gpp, and still reach 189 fps with just 63 lbs. This bow makes me a very happy archer!

I own many American Semi Longbows (ASL) from different makers like Dale Philips, Jim Darling, Ted Kramer, Craig Ekin, John Schulz, Nate Steen and Pete George - all I can say is my friend Magén Klomp made me an elegant, great, fast and powerful "BOWMAN" longbow and it is absolutely built in the Hill tradition. Wonderful that we have a bow maker here in Europe who knows the secrets of this type of bow. THANK YOU Magen & Shoot Straight!

How it works

We set up the bow for you with a near to correct brace height, all you have to do is apply a nocking point (if so desired) and start enjoying the bow, creating new adventures!

The BOWMAN American Semi Longbow model is designed after Writer and Showman Peter O. Stecher’s personal bows, which are similar to the longbows Howard Hill took with him to Africa.

Made with tapered laminations of specially hardened bamboo all placed behind the riser. Options of black, and white backing and belly of A-grade fiberglass.

It has a laminated bamboo handle grip with a grip cap of contrasting wood and grey handle leather wrapping. The grip is narrow and deep like Howard's unless otherwise requested.

We have developed a special textured coating for the Bowman bow. 'Panzer Varnish'

This 2K coating gives a very durable 'Panzer' satin-matt finish. The perfect shine for good looks, out and about in the fields, and very durable and long-lasting.

We can use any combination of black and white of our pultrusion glass.  Peter O. Stecher advises a white belly and black backing just like Howard used in days gone by.

Yes, although we think these make the bow stand out amongst other bows, we can do without the stickers.
