A bow in the finest tradition! Old Reliable designed by the master! In 1946 Howard Hill created a longbow for his best friend and hunting companion, Wayne Stotler. Mr. Hill incorporated all the finest elements of design that went to produce a weapon of strength, speed, accuracy, smoothness and reliability. He chose walnut for the riser, clear glass and bamboo for laminations. The resulting bow was beautiful and a joy to shoot!
So "Old Reliable" came to be. I have brought back Old Reliable to commemorate the warm friendship that Howard and Wayne shared in life. Together, they explored and hunted the hills of Southern California and the islands off the coast. Fourteen months together on the Tembo Safari in Africa, they shared the ultimate hunting experience! And during the last sixteen years of Wayne's life, Howard and Old Reliable were never far from his side...true and trusted friend.
Now you can share in the tradition. Old Reliable is offered in two lengths, 61" and 65", with standard Bamboo laminations, or choose from Red Elm, Yew or Osage. You can also choose your riser wood and the color of your fiberglass (clear, black or brown). Your bow comes with a Flemish twist fast flight string and custom bow sock. Old Reliable carries Stotler's standard two year warranty.
