Tameri is the original Egyptian sacred land. The Tameri bow is the most similar of my bows to the Egyptian bow
The form of the Tameri bow was created over four years by successive testing and subsequent adjustments. The original idea for the development of this bow was to make the bow as short as possible and as powerful as possible, while meeting the IFAA longbow category. Another request was to make a more voluminous, more massive riser for greater weight and stability of the bow when shot. I think it was successful and Tameri very pleasantly surprised even shooters who already know bows from me and have been shooting with Akil or Khai for a long time.
The middle of the bow consists of hard domestic and exotic woods as Shedua, Zebrano, Jatoba, Ipe, Wenge, Ash, Maple and Walnut interspaced with thin color fiberglass reinforcement. The wood is pre-cut to segments, carefully selected and glued again. This enables higher toughness, stability and absorption capability of the middle part. I consider the design of the middle part that consists of hard woods and relatively small amount of thin fiberglass to be an ideal solution from the point of esthetics, bow properties and safety.
The limbs are made of the core of tapered bamboo and other light weight woods laminations and, depending on the design, fiberglass or carbon laminate. Single carbon (SC) model has an unidirectional carbon on backing and a transparent or black fiberglass on the belly. Double cross carbon (DCX) has both laminates of 100% carbon.
There is a veneer under the transparent fiberglass. It serves one main purpose to show and celebrate a natural beauty of the wood. The choice of the veneer and the wood type is down to personal preferences of each and every archer.
Every Akil bow is varnished with 5 layers of mat 2 PUR varnish. The bow can be customized with brass inserts UNC 10-24 for a bow quiver mount.
The grip can be dressed in leather on request.
Every Tameri bow is supplied with 12(14) threads of Dynaflight 97 or 16(18) threads of Spectra 652 string and Angel Majesty centre serving.
Tameri bow is made in following lengths:
62″ for max. draw length 27″ Recommended brace height is 7,00″
64″ for max. draw length 29″ Recommended brace height is 7,25″
66″ for max. draw length 31″ Recommended brace height is 7,50″
Tameri bow fulfills all requirements for competitions under IFAA and WA associations.
