Topic: question about bow material
so i've been thinking...all of the korean bows i've seen have been laminated bows. but does any maker offer a full polyresin korean bow? by fully polyresin i mean something like the okcubaba premium or the simsek hybrids. of course there a few issues i can foresee with making a ktb in all resin. one being the weight, although i know the simsek bows are lighter than the okcubaba.
my 2 biggest reasons for wanting a ktb in full polyresin is:
a.) weather resistance. don't have to worry about moisture/rain/humidity
b.) longevity. reading about people's bow failures on here is disheartening, especially the kaya's since i own one. i understand nothing lasts forever(relatively), but with a polyresin bow there's no worry of delamination. i'm sure there are other points of failure for a polyresin bow, but im assuming if used with care and not left out in UV rays, it should outlast me.
also if taken care of, can a hornbow last a lifetime? just some things i've been pondering as of late.
