    :frusty: I am buying a traditional longbow and I am looking at a hickory bow. I am looking at two different bows. They both have about the same size, draw weight and draw length but one is linen backed. What do I do About this? WHich is better?

    Hickory is a strong wood, but the linen back ads strength to the other bow.
