The Owl is a sweet Howard Hill bow with bamboo core limbs, osage veneers, and clear glass. This bow also has a black leather grip wrap and tip overlays to match the riser. It's the best shooting Howard Hill bow I've ever owned but I'm in selfbow mode and thinning the pile. It is a slight reflexed model for a bit more snap and speed and the grip grip is small and very comfortable... not the usual deep flat Hill grip. If you ever wanted to try one, or if you need one for your collection, you'll love this bow. I will ship, insure, and take PayPal.
