    I am In 11th grade and me and a bunch of my buddies are making longbows in shop class. I was wondering if anyone on this forum has ever made a long bow and any tips you might have. We are also using fiberglass so the bow will not break. Any help would be appreciated.

    Bullseye, I have never made a long bow but that is all I shoot. You can go to tradgang.com and the guys will answer any questions you have and help you along. There is a forum with alot of info. Hope this helps and good luck with your new stick.
