Terms and Conditions


Access and use of this website and the products available are subject to the following terms and conditions. By using these you are agreeing to all of these terms and conditions which may be updated from time to time.

Privacy policy

We will not disclose your name, address, email address or telephone number unless we have informed you, been authorised by you or are required to by law, subject to the Data Protection Act 1998.

Purchase of products

Once the detailed specification of your bow has been agreed by email, a deposit of 50% of the final price will be due. Once your bow is ready for dispatch, you will be invoiced for the outstanding amount. Your bow will be dispatched once full funds have been received. Payment will be made via Paypal. You undertake that all details provided to us are correct, that you are the authorised user of the credit or debit card or Paypal account used to make your purchase, and that there are sufficient funds available to cover the cost of the goods.

Delivery of Products

Your bow will be shipped using a standard parcel shipping method, and should normally be delivered in 3-5 working days from dispatch. We are not responsible for any delay in delivery occurring due to force majeure, postal strikes etc. Lead time for making bows is 6 to 8 weeks from confirmation of order, though every effort will be made to improve on those timings where possible. We will inform you if any circumstances occur that might delay your order beyond the projected time.


Your bow will be produced using quality materials and assembled, shaped and finished with the utmost care. However, wood is a natural material, and some variations and potential defects may be indiscernible during manufacture. To this end, your bow is guaranteed for twelve months against material and manufacturing faults, upon receipt of the original bow provided the care instructions have been observed. The warranty is on an ex-works basis. The cost of carriage to and from the workshop is your responsibility.

Care of your bow

Your bow is supplied with a string made from Brownell Astroflight material. It is recommended that Dyneema or Dacron materials are used. When stringing your bow, use an appropriate bow stringer. Failure to do so may damage your bow.

Once strung, check the brace height and adjust if necessary. Then slowly draw the bow to achieve a partial draw a few times, before drawing the bow fully. This ‘exercising’ of the bow will avoid potentially stressing the wooden elements of the bows limbs unduly.

Your bow has been finished with an Osmo Polyx oil treatment, which will resist moisture etc. However, it is recommended that you wipe down the bow when it has been used in wet weather etc, and do not store it in damp conditions. Excesses of temperature (hot and cold) may have an adverse effect on your bows performance and longevity; avoid these conditions. Applying refresher coats of oil, or a beeswax based finish from time to time, will enhance the weather resistance and look of your bow.

Use of light arrows may damage your bow, as will a dry-loose. We suggest a minimum arrow weight of 7 grains per pound of draw weight to avoid shortening the life of your bow. 10 grains per pound is recommended.

Your bow should not be drawn beyond 30” unless expressly designed for a longer draw.

Avoid shooting damaged arrows, or those whose nocks are too loose a fit on the string.


Archery bows should only be used by experienced archers, or with appropriate training by a qualified coach. Due to the lack of control we have over the situations or circumstances under which bows may be kept, treated and used, we are not responsible for any consequential loss, damage or injury which might occur when using our bows. Please observe the Care of your Bow guidance preceding this, and enjoy many happy years of service from your Broome Bow.
