Chris Radbone

Chris joined us in May 2014 after attending a number of both Wednesday and Sunday shoots, scoring well at both from the word go.

Chris currently uses a 70lb bow made by Ray Underwood and has started to use arrows that he’s made himself and is getting some very good scores. His good form has put him in with a decent shout at competition shoots. So far he’s finished 2nd in the 2014 Crecy Trophy and the 2015 Agincourt Trophy, and 3rd in both the 2015 and 2016 Robert Wallis Trophy.

Chris has been making longbows under the guidance of Ray Underwood at the Radley Bowhouse from early 2016 and is now using a 70lb bow he has recently completed. See photos in Rogues Gallery for 2016. Chris Has been making lonbows now for 6 years and has made many for various club members
