Well Steve Turay of Northern Mist Longbows has done it again! A new longbow design that breaks all the rules!
Let’s say that you wanted a bow that was the most forgiving, most stable, most accurate, quietest bow you could get but still wanted it to shoot with great cast and performance. Most bowyers would tell you it cant be made. Well Steve actually made exactly that with exactly those specs! He did not think it was possible either. But a phone call from one of his customers and some experimenting in his shop lead to this new bow design.
Introducing the Norther Mist Ramer Longbow! This is a reverse handle string follow longbow.
Now by design the reverse handle longbow will be more stable, more forgiving, more accurate, and quieter that other longbow designs. Also by design the string follow longbow will have those exact same qualities. When you combine both a reverse handle and string follow into the same bow you essentially double the benefits of those qualities. However i don’t believe anyone has every attempted it do to the assumption that both of those qualities combined would hurt arrow speed. What Steve actually found out is the Ramer is within 3-4 feet per second of the speeds of his other bow designs. Now 3-4 fps is nothing! Heck most of us cant release good enough to not get 5fps fluctuation in speed consistency out any bow we shoot.
So This Ramer will shoot plenty fast, will shoot more accurate, will shoot quieter, will be more forgiving, will be more stable, and will straight up make you a better shot and better bowhunter!
The Ramer has been being tested by a few of Steve’s friends as well as Steve himself and the results and feedback are amazing! This bow is not yet on the Northern Mist website but will be soon. In the meantime you can always contact Steve for more details. The Ramer is available now is lengths from 64″-68″ and all the same wood options and grip designs as his other bows.
