The Myth is here
For a long time, the Falco collection was lacking two things: a fast shooting recurved longbow, and a longbow to fit the ~60" length range. The Myth is our answer to both of these gaps. Launched in autumn 2017, this is a longbow with which we open our collection of longbows that are shorter, wider and slightly recurved. The Myth is really the perfect mid-range longbow, suitable for casual archery, 3D and hunting. Despite its short length, as seen in the draw curve below, the Myth really is a unique longbow in that it can be used with any draw length (up to 32"). And better even, the Myth packs excellent performance.
As all Falco longbows, the Myth is hand-made in our workshop in Estonia to every last detail. And details is where the attention has really gone on this model. We pay particular attention to rounding all corners, making aesthetically pleasing tips, finishing each bow with impeccable lacquer quality, all the while keeping the bow profile sleek - as is known for all Falco longbows. The Myth features our signature high wrist pistol grip, which is specifically designed to support the archer in a relaxed bow hand, which is the groundwork for an excellent archery form.

All Myth bows come with a bamboo core. Design-wise, the Myth comes in a wenge wood handle (replacement possible upon request) with a lovely curved inlay that can feature any color Colorwood or another wood type besides wenge. The curved inlay in the handle as well as the limb design is for you as the customer to choose!
