These are the currently available Omega Longbow models. Custom options and How to Order are listed towards the bottom of the page!

 

Omega Original... $365

 

 

 

This bow is designed to offer excellent performance and durability at an affordable price, a real "Working Man's Bow". The standard comes with a laminated red oak riser stained to your preference and limbs made from durable hickory, forming a fast bow that's nearly indestructible. Capable of shooting a heavy, 10 grains per pound arrow at 180 feet per second, this bow trades frills for firepower. It's available in 62" or 64", and the updated models have even smoother draws. The cut to center riser and comfortable locator grip allow for tight accuracy and ease of tuning. Bomb-proof pheonolic tips allow for the use of high-performance string, and every bow comes fitted with a custom endless loop BCY-X Omega bowstring.

This was the bow I wanted to see on the market when I started, and it has been the foundation for Omega Longbows ever since. I stand behind my bows and each one comes with a lifetime warranty applicable to the original owner. I hope it becomes a part of your family for years to come!

Please specify dexterity and stain upon ordering. The link to the Minwax stains is below. Please check 'Warranty and FAQ' for the allowable draws with each bow length. Available in 62" or 64", draw lengths up to 31", and draw weights up to 50# at your draw length. Right or left handed.

 

 

 

 

 

 Omega Native... $395

 

 

 

 

This compact bow fits a wide range of archers from small framed youth or lady archers seeking a comfortable target bow to long-draw lumberjacks looking for a more maneuverable hunting weapon. With a compact, angular riser it fits the hand very naturally and the sight window is full height, allowing for a wide range of shooting styles. The sweeping hybrid limbs smooth the draw and reduce finger pinch considerably.

With the stealthy Native American archers in mind, this bow was built for the hunt. Featuring the tough hickory limbs and laminated oak riser standard, this bomb-proof 56" bow can handle draw lengths up to 31" without stacking. The split-riser design not only adds considerable strength but also allows for a two-tone riser stain option, in addition to the new ipe riser option as well. Designed for smoothness and forgiveness, this tiny bow is surprisingly accurate and spits an arrow out with similar performance to the Imperial longbow with maple core.

Draw weights can be ordered up to 60#  with special orders for heavier models available for custom orders. Only available in 56". This bow is a great option for young, growing shooters. The rounded locator grip, like the Original, is standard. The recurve/flat grip is also available.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Omega Imperial... $395

 

 

 

This bow was designed to with target shooting in mind. The long oak riser holds steady on target and is balanced to point naturally, with ample delfex to make the bow forgiving of shooting mistakes. The highly reflexed limbs deliver great speed with low shock and no twist.  The limbs pull straight into a D shape with no visible reflex, making it legal for even strict longbow competitions. The long sight window is cut in a straight line to center to comply with regulations while remaining forgiving of a wide range of arrow weights and spines. Built with the same laminated oak riser and hickory limb core, this bow is built to last and carries the Omega lifetime warranty.

This hard hitting bow would be legal for any modern longbow tournament. Balanced well, i'st a joy to shoot for fun, and extremely consistent on targets. The smooth, high performance limbs make the bow a powerful hunting weapon, launching heavy arrows with deadly authority. Bow lengths are available from 60" to 70", so you can find the perfect length for your draw length and uses. The 60" is good for archers drawing up to 28", while the 62-66" lengths will cover draw lengths up to 31". The 68" and 70" lengths are available for archers with very long draws and target archers. For all around shooting, the 64" Imperial is by far the most popular.

Standard options for the Imperial include stain selection, length options from 60" to 70", and either a bulbous locator or flat recurve style grip. A flared ipe riser is available, bringing mass weight up to almost three pounds. The Imperial can also be ordered as a two-piece take-down bow for travelling. Draw weights are available up to 60# and extra heavy weights can be custom ordered. Please contact me directly for more information.
