The Penobscot Indian bow named after the ingenious Penobscot Indians of the eastern woodlands. This Marvelous bow was one of the most versatile bows ever made and may have very well been one of the first compound designs ever built. The bow is stable and can be adjusted to a higher draw weight by tightening the back strings. The back bow and strings help reduce string follow adding speed. This bow also sports lower hand shock as well as accuracy. This bow featured a Elliptical main bow which also adds to speed.
This is an excellent bow with a super sweet draw!
To adjust the draw weight simply put the bow on a bench with each tip set on a 1" thick block of wood. Now clamp the handle down to the bench bending the limbs slightly backward. This will relieve the string pressure. Take the old string off and twist it 2 -3 turns tighter. Unclamp bow and replace 1" block with a 2" block, Reclamp handle down and replace the string. The draw weight will increase. Use up to a 4" inch block. The tighter the back strings the higher the draw weight of the entire bow. Piece of cake!!
