150 pages, lots of pictures, hardcover. Well written, with a touch of humor and philosophy. Kassai explains his style of teaching horsearchery. Since he had no instructor or even knew of anyone who shot from horseback he made mistakes and gives the reader the opportunity to avoid the ones he has made. The task of marrying the two complex arts of horsemanship and archery are a challenge that will stretch the mind and spirit.
Everything you ever wanted to know about thumbrings. History, culture, how to make and how to use. Lots of pictures.
Send circumference of first knuckle of right thumb. I keep 11 sizes in stock.
It is important that a thumb ring fit just right. My rings are cast in pewter here in Madison Wisconsin. Pewter give you the option of adjusting the ring to fit your thumb. Most easily by gentle striking to get the oval of the ring to match the oval shape of your thumb. Shrinking or expanding are simple tasks for even amateur jewelers or plumbers.
These bows do not have arrow rests. The design is to have the arrow rest directly on the bow hand. So the archer needs a glove on bow hand to keep fletching from giving "paper cuts" to side of hand.
You can add an arrow rest. This is a simple leather wrap around the handle with a folded upper lip to hold the arrow above the archer's bow hand. Many customers initially have doubts about not having a set resting point on the bow. The vast majority find they adapt to not having an arrow rest in a few dozen shots. A few archers find they need the arrow rest.
Each model has a different length, of string and sizes of loops. So give me model, or measurement of overall length and length of each loop.
Kassai supplies a nylon string with the bow. I have replacement strings made in USA and they are Dacron.
