My wife and I were able to watch a show one year and it is the one I continually tell people about. My wife went back and bought me a bow and a quiver as a wedding gift. Amazing craftsmanship and a awesome bow. I have had so much fun with it and will always recommend Whipperwil Archery. I can’t wait for the next time I get to see a performance of such expert skills. Keep up the good work! -Michael Ryan Smith

True craftsmanship …I shot my Whipperwil bow this evening for the first time since receiving it. I have been shooting fiberglass backed recurves and longbows 20 years .This is my first self bow. I am simply in disbelief of how much quieter and true shooting this bow is, even more so than the glass backed bows that I am accustomed to. Much respect and thanks to Whipperwil Archery. -Josh J. Burkett
