The new Hydra longbow was designed early in 2022. I tested the first prototype at the Estonian Olympic Round Championships (72 arrows at 50 meters on the 122cm target face) and I shot a new national record with the prototype.
TheHydra is visually similar to the Pegasus, but the construction starts with a width of 45mm compared to the 38mm of the Pegasus. The end result is a bow with more mass.
The riser is made from DarkTimber and decorative wood overlays, making the riser strong and heavy. The mass of the standard design is about 1700 grams and about 2000 grams with the optional 'horn' on the bottom part of the riser.
The limbs has a standard construction of unidirectional carbon back, two custom tapered action bamboo core laminations, a layer of weaved carbon and black Bo-Tuff glass on the belly.
As with the other Timberpoint models, the bow is fully customisable, with regards to bow length, draw weight, dexterity, gip shape and size as well as the sight window.
There are a few custom options available. Please see the order page for more details.
