Norwegianwarbows

Warbows and arrows, bowstaves and courses.

wood type records

Here we will add records for each EWBS arrow class from all types of different woods people has successfully made a warbow from. -To register the record the bow must be made using the EWBS rules for size and shape, without laminations. All members of this norwegianwarbows site can register their shots, but it has to be witnessed by another member of this site. Shots made during official shoots will not need another member to witness the shot. The idea is to compare different woods that will make warbows. The EWBS records will stand as records (if they are not beaten and meet the requirements to be recorded here. 

I added the Free Bow Class (FBC) too. For all other types of self bows without bow requirements, this will include all types of flight bows, flatbows, light longbows etc. As long as they're made from one type of wood without laminations. For this class I'll only add flight arrow results. Otherwise same rules as over, bring a trusted witness to confirm your length. Modern string material allowed.

To register a record, just send the information needed to:  nidrinr@norwegianwarbows.com  -And I will update the records.

 The information needed is: wood type, arrow class, poundage of the bow, distance, name of archer, name of bowyer and the name of the one who witnessed the shot.
