Falco Force Vintage
The Falco flagship model Force Vintage is a top performance competition longbow which packs excellent speed and stability into a sleek well-balanced design. The bow features a radical reflex-deflex profile that is further emphasized by a special forward-leaning riser. To make an already quick bow even faster, each Force Vintage comes with a default one layer of carbon, which can be extended to up to three layers (for custom orders). The unique riser design also features Falco signature high wrist grip. The Force Vintage model is a choice for many top archers worldwide for its excellent speed, flexible draw cycle and sleek design, which takes use of ethically harvested exotic woods. It is a definite performance winner in its price category, coming often ahead of much more expensive top models from other manufacturers.

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 Force 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 bowand your own personal characteristics (write firstname.lastname@example.org in case of questions).
