*Before you read this thread calling me an idiot - I do understand what is used on the show is a prop, and most of the scenes are CGI. I am not looking for the exact bow, as I understand it might not be real. If it is real, then yes, what bow is it, but if it isn't, I am looking for something similar. I am not an idiot, I understand television is make believe*

The bow I am looking for is from the TV show "Arrow". I am looking for the Bow of Yao Fei. It is described as a "traditional carbon fiber long bow".

Here are several pictures from the series -

I advise you look at all the images so you get a good idea of the bow.

You're help is greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!

Looks like different bows in several of the pictures.

I couldn't say the exact company which produces it but in general it's just what is called a reflex/deflex longbow. Many different companies produce them although these ones are sized too small for the actors using them, probably to make them less awkward to film with.

Like Grant said, it looks like several bows of the same basic type, either a R/D longbow or what is called a hybrid longbow. Hybrids are a high performance longbow, often matching the perfomance of a modern recurve.

Check out the bows on this site and see if you think they look like the bows in the show. If so, they are known to be a great value...http://omegalongbows.webs.com/

Here is a Carbon Whiplash by Toelke that looks pretty cool! Not sure of the specs... Maybe his Whippenstick would be a better match. Black Swans are now 3 peice with aluminum risers.
