LifeCycle Bows by Wagstaff
Wagstaff Archery builds two models for LifeCycle—the “Sabine” one-piece hybrid longbow and the “Pecos take-down longbow/recurve.
The Sabine is a one-piece longbow with a pronounced reflex/deflex limb profile, giving it excellent speed and shootability. The Sabine’s features include an indexed grip with thumb rest for comfortable and consistent hand placement, a radiused shelf the positions the arrow close to the hand and directly above the grip’s throat, and multi-laminated riser for strength and good center mass. The Sabine is available from 58” to 66” in length.
The Sabine longbow draws its name from the Sabine National Forest in far eastern Texas near the Louisiana border. The earliest inhabitants of the Sabine River area were nomadic hunters who used primitive bows to take deer and bear. Today the Sabine’s “piney-woods” provide habitat for the endangered Red-cockaded Woodpecker.
The Pecos is a take-down bow that draws its riser design form the Sabine, but offers the pack-ability and versatility of a three-piece bow. It is available with longbow or static recurve limbs and features the signature thumb rest for comfortable and consistent hand placement.
The Pecos derives its name from the Pecos River, which originates in New Mexico and flows 926 miles before emptying into the Rio Grande near Del Rio, Texas. In the late 1800s, the Pecos became known as the dividing line between civilized and wild country. West of the Pecos lay uncharted wilderness, bountiful wildlife, and unsavory characters with no law to guide them. The 3- piece LifeCycle Pecos is just the bow you’d want if were venturing on the “wrong side” of the river.
