Jaguar 1/2 inch String Follow composed of Pacific Yew Wood
String Follow indicates that when a bow is unstrung, the limbs bend slightly toward the handle or belly side of the bow. This makes a bow very forgiving and extremely accurate. String Follow bows are excellent for 3-D shoots and hunting big game.
Yew wood is among the toughest of all softwood species. Its density and working characteristics are more inline with a heavy hardwood. Its tight, fine grain and smooth texture give it a lustrous finish.
Yew Wood is extremely flexible and strong making it ideally suited for use in archery bows. Yew was the wood of choice for English longbows in medieval warfare.
