    Default GI You Finish Bows

    After noting my recent addiction to archery, I thought it would be fun to try out a project bow from gibows.com, due to their inexpensive cost and long bow design. The other month, I was intrigued by their booth at the Great American Outdoor Show and thought their American bow would be worth a try.

    Anyone have experience or pictures? Thanks!

    Just got it in the mail. It got here very fast, only four days from PA to ID. Its a nice straight bow and I'm cleaning it up now. $30 for a 15 lb youth bow is pretty dang good in my book. Ill post pics if you like once the finish is done.

    I bought a 50# Gibow u-finish 64" American Classic flatbow a couple years ago and it came out very nice. I added a leather arrow rest and strike plate, and used Watco Danish Oil to finish it. I also added otter fur string silencers. It shoots very well and is dead silent.



    (The pic isn't backwards, the bow is set up for southpaws.)
