The Toelke "STANDARD"

     Here at Toelke Traditional Archery we have given new meaning to the word "STANDARD" when referring to our custom bows. For instance, our bows come with your choice of hardwood  risers "STANDARD". They come with your choice of face veneers "STANDARD", do Bamboo cores cost more? No, they come "STANDARD" in your Toelke bow. Want an extra string for your new bow, it comes with two strings "STANDARD". You want your bow to be within 8oz of the ordered draw weight, we call that "STANDARD". How about getting a custom bow with a fitted grip to your specifications in under 8 weeks? Thats our "STANDARD" here at Toelke Traditional Archery.
 We also offer a XX wood upgrade at $85 for which we find the best riser and limb veneers we can. Other than that a fully custom bow built to your wants and needs is just the "STANDARD".

Email or give us a call, lets talk about what you would like in your custom bow and how we can tune it to meet your needs. No we wont charge extra for that either, you guessed it, its standard.

Fit and Finish

FIT:   All our bows are hand shaped on heavy sanders and hand sanded, edges are neatly radiused. Recurve limb edges are radiused and Longbow limbs are trapped and radiused.

FINISH: Our bows are finished with "Thunderbird" epoxy finish.  We apply 10 coats, wet sand it smooth to 1000 grit(for hand rubbed finish), or buff it  for high gloss. Our matte finished bows get the same 10 coats, then are wet sanded and 3 coats of matte are applied over the clear. This gives a much better result than a milky buildup of matte(like most matte finished products). Leaving a no shine finish yet bringing out all the beauty of the wood and giving your bow a coating to handle any climate.
