Options and prices

I have always been trying to have a few bows in stock so that the customer has an opportunity to shoot or have a look at them and touch the quality of my work. However, it is even more important, for me and my customers, to make custom bow in accordance with wishes of the individual archers. I’m convinced that it brings better results and satisfaction for my customers and for me. The customer gets a bow according to his/her specifications and it is much easier for me to work when I know who I make the bow for. In order to reach the best understanding about the required bow it is important to discuss it with the customer.

The middle section design

The middle section of the bow has one high quality design, skillfully combining exotic or local hard woods stabilized bamboo and fiberglass represented as thin reinforcements. This type of construction gives the bow important properties as toughness, firmness, ability to absorb vibration, proportionate weight, durability and at last but not least, safety. The final look can be achieved by combination of available woods ash, maple, acacia, walnut, black walnut, shedua, zebrano, ipe, jatoba and wenge. Fiberglass laminate reinforcements can be black, white, red, orange, yellow, pink, magenta, blue, green and lime green for that matter. If a non-standard grip is needed, the shape of the handle can be arranged individually. The choice of the middle section design, left-handed models or shaping of the grip don’t affect the end price.

The limbs design

The main material of the limbs of all my bows is the core made of bamboo and other light woods laminations and laminates according to the individual bow designs.

SCX (Single Carbon 45°diagonal woven) design

There is transparent or black fiberglass laminate on the belly and carbon laminate of my own JanBows construction consists of clever combination of carbon fibres on the back of the bow. Compared to the original SC carbon, this construction is more compact, more durable and the bow has more balanced properties. There is a thin decorative veneer under the transparent laminate.

Akil SCX 68″, 70″ 1174 €
Tameri SCX 62″, 64″ / 66″, 68″ 1174 €
Khai SCX 62″, 64″, 66″ 1174 €
Tabia SCX 62″, 64″, 66″ 1174 €
Sanura SCX 58″, 60″ 1174 €
Jahi SCX 58″, 60″, 62″, 64″, 66″ 1174 €
Jabari SC 52″   261 €

Both designs can be made using available decorative veneers under the transparent fiberglass. Ash, maple, elm, zebrano, shedua, black walnut, bubinga and others are available in various shades and grain type as straight, bird’s eye, tiger stripe and many others. The choice of the veneer design, from the available woods doesn’t affect the end price.

DCX (Double Carbon 45°diagonal woven) design

Both laminates of my own JanBows construction consist of clever combination of carbon fibres. It brings more lightweight and quick bow limbs with much more torsional stiffness even in low poundage bows. The result is certainly even lower handshock than in Basic and SC designs.

Akil DCX 68″, 70″ 1 521 €
Khai DCX 62″, 64″, 66″ 1 521 €
Tabia DCX 62″, 64″, 66″ 1 521 €

Take down bow bolt

Every bow I make can be equipped with a take down bow bolt. It makes bow transportation much easier, especially on a plane or a motorbike. The connection is designed so that the both parts of the bow are inserted into each other and twisted by 90°. This type of the connection makes it possible to shape the grip in the same way as the solid bow grip. The grip can, optionally, be covered with leather. A weight increase, by approximately 100 grams, could be an advantage for some archers. The added weight is at the spot where the sport bows have a mounted stabilizer. The connection is very precise, it doesn’t squeak, click or creak. The connection is made of stainless steel. If you are interested in the take down bow, please mind that it can only be installed in a new bow and it cannot be installed in Atsu, Jahi and Jabari bows. Also the bow isn’t split into two equal parts of the same length.

There is an additional charge of 240 € added to the price of a bow

Heavy riser of the bow

To increase the weight and strength of the riser of the bow, the front part of the riser can be made with a combination of Ipe and black fiberglass. It increases the final riser weight on the finished bow by approximately 25%.

For shooters who prefer a high grip, the Akil, Tameri and Khai bows can be customized.

Leather grip cover

The grip of the bow can be covered with leather of aprox. 1mm thick. The leather increases the size of the grip and it needs to be considered while shaping it. The leather colors are brown or black.

Jahi and Jabari bows have the leather grip included in price.


Stippling grip

Roughening of the bow handle for a more secure grip even with a wet hand. The volume of the handle does not change and the beauty of the wood remains.

Carbon overlay and limb tips

Carbon wood tips

For even lighter limb tips, the fiberglass reinforcement is replaced with lighter and stronger carbon. The original beautiful wood is preserved not only for appearance, but also for the lowest possible weight.

Inserts for the bow quiver

In order to mount an bow quiver it is possible to insert my custom made brass inserts, with an inner thread UNC 10-24, into the middle section of the bow.
