    • Thank you very much for all the positive feedback you’ve sent us on our new Bodnik Longbow. Since the launch a few weeks ago, we have received fantastict feedback from many of our friends in archery, bow hunters and of course our Bearpaw dealers regarding the Bodnik Longbow.

      We have supplemented our online data for the Bodnik Longbow with data on just how smoth the draw is on the Bodnik Longbow. We have published a draw force curve chart and graph to show you what to expect from these smooth yet powerful longbow limbs.

       See the Bodnik Longbow Online

      The bamboo cores in the limbs combined with our special longbow limb design provides a very comfortable and smooth draw all the way to 30 inches  –  even though this longbow is only 66″ nock to nock! Of course, you can draw the Bodnik Longbow much further if you need to. All Bodnik Bows have been thouroughly tested in our testing facility where we have drawn the limbs to an amazing 40 inches with no damage! Our Bodnik Bows can handle this, no problem!

      However, as you can see in the draw force chart, the Bodnik Longbow gains approx. 4 lbs per inch for draw lengths of 31 – 33 inches. The draw is smooth all the way to 30″ and then gains weight a bit faster between 31″ – 34″. Rest assured though, these bows are safe to draw this far. We guarantee it, and back them for 30 years!

      Our Recommendation:

      The Bodnik Longbow is a perfect longbow choice for draw lengths up to a maximum of 30 inches.

      Of course, this Bodnik Bow is covered by our legendary 30 Year Guarantee!

      We’re thrilled to introduce our Bodnik Longbow!
      With our Bodnik Longbow – We believe we have succeeded in creating longbow perfection.


      We have been working on the Bodnik Longbow for quite some time. Our goal was to design and manufacture a longbow above all others. A longbow that was comfortable in the hand and even more than that, a natural extension of your hand. Our unique grip design ensures that natural on-target point ability. The limbs sweep back from the riser in a mild deflexing arc and then sweep back forward to optimize the power in the limbs and transfer it to the arrow. The Bodnik Longbow with its efficient limb design shoots arrows flat and fast. We carefully designed our limbs, riser, and overall bow length to comply with the requirements of all national and international federations so this bow would qualify as a true “longbow” for all competitions and championships. Design is critically important, but without quality materials a great design is worthless. Here at Bodnik Bows we use only the best materials! The limbs of the Bodnik Longbow are crafted with Bodnik Bamboo cores under our powerful and perfectly transparent Crystal Clear Bearpaw Powerglass. The crystal clear fiberglass allows the natural beauty of the bamboo laminations to show through perfectly. Our skilled bowyers are trained to grind the limbs to our tight specifications. This ensures limbs with a smooth draw and a powerful cast. We rely on our bowyers and their attention to detail to make each bow a true work of art. We’re proud of the work they do. Try the New Bodnik Longbow yourself – it is a bow you can be proud to shoot, and who knows? Perhaps you will win some competitions with yours! After all – if you’re going to shoot a longbow – why not shot a beautiful longbow that is stable, balanced, forgiving, and fast?

      The Bodnik Longbow is all of that and more – it will help you shoot your best!

    • Archers need warm hands and smooth releases to shoot well in the cold!

      When your fingers are cold and uncomfortable, it is difficult to shoot accurately. Of course, many archers want to shoot in the winter, so they need a good cold weather shooting glove. That’s why we decided to design and manufacture the perfect shooting glove system for the cold times of year. We knew that archers need protection on BOTH hands, so we developed identical winter gloves for both the right and left hands and we will offer them in pairs. This way, left handed and right handed shooters can use the same gloves!

      Sure, there were challenges. We knew the glove material needed to be warm enough to keep the archer’s hands comfortably warm in the colder moths of autumn and winter – yet the glove materials could not be too thick or they would interfere with the archer’s feel of the bow and the bowstring. We had to get it just right!

      We chose just the right thickness of soft warm fleece that would give us a balance between warm hands and a good feel for the bow and the bowstring. On the palms of each glove we incorporated soft cow leather to aid in both gripping the bow and in arrow extraction from targets. The fingertips are also reinforced with soft cow leather to ensure that two very important shooting requirements are met:

      - Provide sufficient protection of the fingers while drawing the bow.
      - Provide a soft yet smooth surface the allows fast, controlled releases.
      Bonus – The new Winter Gloves look pretty darn good too!

      The pair of Winter Glove: 26,98 Euro

      Direct link to the new Winter Gloves

      When the days are cold, but the sun is bright, many archers still want to get out and shoot! The problem has always been finding a shooting glove that will provide protection from the cold. With normal shooting gloves, your fingers get too cold to shoot well. With our new „Winter Gloves“ you can shoot all day in the cold with comfortable hands and warm fingers! Our new Winter Gloves are made with soft and warm fleece to protect your hands from the cold. They have cow leather on the palms for a good solid grip on your bow and on the finger tips to give you a good feel of the sting and to ensure smooth releases for accurate shooting. If you like to shoot your bows all year, even in the cold season, order a set of our Winter Gloves today so you can shoot in confort even on the coldest days.

      The perfect shooting glove for the cold days of autumn and winter!

      - Sizes: XXS, XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL
      - Glove Material: Soft Warm Winter Fleece
      - Palm and Tips Material: Cow Leather
      - Package Count: One pair of shooting gloves

    • Christmas should be a quiet contemplative time… The year is slowly coming to an end and treasured times shared with family and friends are ahead of us. It is a special season when we deliberately make time and space for ourselves and cherish our circle of family and close friends.

      After a very hectic and successful year, Bearpaw Products is closed for the holidays so we can celebrate this holiday season with our family and friends.
