Northern Mist Longbows

Traditional Design-Uncommon Performance

Shelton

Shelton String-Follow Longbow-UnstrungShelton String-Follow Longbow-Strung

The Shelton is an American style, semi-longbow with a touch of string follow. This design is a Northern Mist exclusive, inspired by an observation made by archery legend, Howard Hill, that all other things being equal, a bow with string follow will be more accurate.

The string follow design provides archers with a forgiving release, with little, if any hand shock at the end of the power stroke as the string returns to brace. This modified design of the Classic does not compromise any speed or cast by comparison. The design is popular among archers seeking the traditional feel of the Classic, but enjoy the smooth, forgiving performance that comes with the string follow design. The Shelton is available in 66” to 69”.
