FALCO TROPHY VINTAGE
Falco Trophy has been the hallmark of our collection for many years. A bow of exceptional shooting qualities and stability, it has accompanied many top shooters in competitive archery and hunting on their quests. That in Europe and also further. Trophy is a bow that is almost always custom made for the specific shooter only and is highly customizable according to the special requests of the buyer. The choice of materials for the bow is also vast as we have the possibility to combine different rare and exclusive sorts of valuable wood. Combined together they make a truly unique and eye-catching piece of art. We believe that the bow must in addition to its premium shooting qualities also be a work of art – special and close to the shooter’s heart.
The use of exotic wood often also provides weight and hence also stability to the bow riser which is especially true for heavy wood such as cocobolo, palisander or other wood types that sink in the water. In partnership with the Finnish company CWP we also offer 2- or 3-color combinations of what they call colorwood – deep colored wood made in a special patented technology. Possible tones of color are 12 and all combinations of them are possible to be used in the riser.
The bow handle is custom handmade and is fitted into the palm perfectly offering comfort and stability for shooting. The choice of handle types include the standard low wrist grip with the included “Falco finger-cut” but also a higher wrist grip pistol handle unique for Falco longbows.
For those who aim maximum bow efficiency and greater arrow speed, we also offer the possibility to add extra Carbon layers or bamboo in the limbs.

FAQ ABOUT THIS MODEL
- What is the recommended brace height for this model?
We suggest starting to test arrow flight at around brace height 7.5″ but optimal arrow flight is what will determine the best brace height. On this bow, you are most likely to find optimal flight between 7″ – 8″, but may experiment also with longer (up to 8.5″)
- Is string included? What sort of a string?
Yes, the model comes with a Spectra Flemish string. The number of string strands depends on the weight of the bow (14, 16 or 18)
- Is this model IFAA/NFAA legal?
- Is this model WA legal?
- Can this model be cut past centre?
This model can only be cut past centre if the bow is light in draw weight. The Trophy has a slim handle that is designed to comply with IFAA rules where cutting past centre is prohibited so it is done only upon special request and on bows below 40#. Price addition may apply. As default, the model comes with a rest cut almost to centre.
- What arrows would you recommend for this bow?`
Although all main types of arrows (wooden, aluminum, carbon) could be used with this bow, the authentic choice would be to use wooden arrows. For optimum performance and highest quality, we suggest our hand-picked Premium model arrows which are the choice for many European and World Champions and medalists. The choice of wooden arrows depends on your bow and your own personal characteristics (write firstname.lastname@example.org in case of questions).
