1Black Douglas Take Down Recurves The Black Douglas Series has three riser lengths, The Black Douglas 21” in length making bows 60” to 66. The Black Douglas Swift 19” in length making bows from 58 to 64” and the Black Douglas Ultra 17” in length making bow lengths from 56” to 62” in length (Click here for more information)The Black Douglas series offers three limb models each with four limb lengths (Click here for more information)Black Douglas series options. Bow shown is a BD Super Ultra in in 60” bow-length. The riser is in Shedua-Bloodwood with finger grooves and extra high grip, Buff Horn overlays with quiver inserts and Hex IV limbs in forest pattern. The limbs are mounted with optional thumb bolts in place of Allen bolts.Click on blue arrow to hyperlink you to subjectClick to end Show

3Take Down Recurves from Border The Black Douglas take-apart recurve offers the longest riser to limb combination catering for long draw archers in the 64” and 66” version.In the 60” and 62” version it works very well for shorter draw archers looking for a slightly longer bow for stability. Short sharp acting limbs on a longer riser boosting overall performance.As with all of the Black Douglas series two riser formats are available on the left the Standard format with parallel inserts and on the right the Super model with the diverging contrasting timber insert.The Standard riser (left) is shown with Shedua and parallel Bubinga timbers and reinforced with white glass reinforcements sandwiching a substantial triple laminates carbon reinforcing strip.The Super Riser (right) is shown with Shedua and Indonesian Rosewood insert. The reinforcements are the same for both model types. ( Fastflite approved)Other timbers on offer include Macasser Ebony, Santos Rosewood, Indonesian Rosewood Bloodwood, Honduras Walnut, Zebrano and Mulberry.The Black Douglas has a 21” riser and 4.5” sight window bow lengths available range from 60” to 66”

Also avail able in Zebrano Macasser Ebony, Santos rosewood, Bubinga, Honduras Mahogany, BloodwoodAlso Shown in these risers are the optional extras quiver inserts, Buffalo Horn overlays and finger grooves.Check out the other risers shown in the catalogue for other options and wood looksFor those looking to shoot lighter arrows then check out the CX riser option available on all Border bows

Also available with red glass contrasting reinforcementsRiser detail shows Plunger button insert option.The Buffalo Horn option in addition to the carbon overlays and CX riser option makes the strongest riser set-up available on the Black Douglas series.
6Black Douglas Super Swift Risers Black Douglas Super Swifts. One left hand and the other right, crafted in Shedua with Cocobolo centres.The Right Handed Swift has Finger grooves and Buff Horn overlays.The Left handed Swift shows the CX riser option and accessory insert. The CX option doubles the reinforcements allowing the archer to shoot lighter arrows. Also essential for extra heavy weight bowsThe Black Douglas Swift has a 19” riser and 3.5” sight window bow lengths available range from 58” to 64”

9Black Douglas Super Ultra Two views of the same Super Ultra riser crafted with Indonesian Rosewood-Shedua riser has the added CX reinforcement .These risers also shows the optional carbon front overlay and contrasting shields that adds additional strength and further compliments the CX option.The far right the riser is pictured with quiver inserts. In addition to the insert configuration shown quiver and inserts can be set to comply with an archers specific request.The Black Douglas Ultra has a 17” riser and 2.25” sight window. Bow lengths available range from 56” to 62”
10Black Douglas Super Ultra Two Black Douglas Super Ultra’s crafted from the same wood combinations of Shedua and Santos Rosewood.Risers show the significant deflex Geometry that is proven to enhance accuracy and shooting forgivenessThe Black Douglas Swift has a 17” riser and 2.25” sight window bow lengths available range from 56” to 62”
11Black Douglas limb models The Black Douglas series has three limb high performance models all of complex carbon construction. Models are BD HEX4 –W wood core, BD HEX5-W wood core and the highest performing bow limb the HEX5-H (Composite core High Energy Express) limb.What is most significant of all of these limbs are the exceptionally high levels of torsional rigidity designed into every limb. This feature makes the limb very accurate, stable and forgiving of release errors and by far more important than all out speed!The HEX4 & 5 limbs are constructed using Border’s own new technology CXC carbon bow facings. These facings are more than twice as strong as conventional clear bow laminates and 40% lighter resulting in one of the lightest limb construction available. As a result these limb are the fastest limb available on any Border bow. The CXC bow facing also offers twice the increased torsional rigidity further enhancing the limbs stability and forgiving nature. The highest performing limb in our stable. Available in black or brown finish or in optional forest pattern. (Click blue arrow for more information)Approximately 4 years ago the HEXIV wood cored limb with the previous TX40 bow facings wastested AMO Independently 60lbs at 30” arrows were slightly heavier at 545 grains speed 197 fps.The new CXC laminates are around 200 grains lighter and that adds around 2ft per sec in arrowspeed making this combination a possible AMO 200 ft per sec candidate!The HEX5-W has been substantially developed to improve stored energy and therefore arrow speedapproximately 4 fps faster than HEX4. Bow noise although very low on the HEXIV was also reducedon the HEX5 series design. Torsional rigidity remains exceptionally high by any measurementand twice as high as the TX40 laminate generated. The HEX5-H is the composite core versionand as such has a lower mass core by around 23% giving another 1 to 2 fps boost . The “H” coreIs also designed to be temperature stable, stabilizing performance throughout differingclimatic conditions.
