Bows in Stock

This is a complete list of the bows I have made which are in stock at the moment.

These are some of the players who are using my bows.

Of course I can make any bow you like from my full catalogue.

The price in pounds (£) is the basic price excluding shipping.

I have arranged for secure credit card payment via PayPal. If you wish to use this method, click on the “Buy now” button next to the bow you wish to buy to be taken to the shopping cart page where you should choose the appropriate shipping zone (UK, Europe or USA/World) You will then be taken to a secure page run by PayPal to enter your credit card details.

Solution Graphics
PayPal can accept all major credit and debit cards; payment can be made in pounds, euros or dollars.

PayPal then send both of us a confirmation email which I further acknowledge personally by email and post off your bow by insured airmail. It should take between seven and ten days to arrive depending on where in the world you live. If you have any trouble with the shopping cart please just email me and I'll set up a special button which by-passes the cart and takes you straight to the PayPal secure page.

I can also accept payment by direct bank transfer and normal dollar cheques drawn on a bank in USA or normal euro cheques drawn on a bank in Europe. If you wish to pay by any of these methods, please email or telephone me your order so I can tell you the total price including delivery and can also reserve your bow until your payment arrives.

All my bows are sent “on approval ” for two weeks trial, if you don’t like the bow, for any reason at all, please return it, at your expense, by insured post within that time for a full refund of what you paid.
