Fans going wild for Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 bows
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 opens this weekend in theaters across the country. And already, people are talking about the Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 bows shot by Katniss Everdeen and other archers in the film.This is the fourth film in the Hunger Games series. In each one, Katniss – played by actress Jennifer Lawrence – has used a different bow. In some of the movies, she’s shot more than one bow.Here at Lancaster Archery Supply, we’ve got several bows which are very similar to the ones strung by Miss Katniss throughout the Hunger Games series.If you’re feeling a desire to get in touch with your inner Katniss and let loose a few arrows, here are a couple of bows to consider.
Rebellion Longbow – Katniss starts out with a longbow in the very first Hunger Games movie. The Rebellion is a nice imitation of that bow. It’s a 54-inch longbow with a 25-pound draw weight. You can get this bow by itself or as part of a set, which includes three aluminum arrows.
Capitol Recurve Bow – There are two of these bows – one is silver and the other is black. These are the best value for beginners age 11 through adult, with bows available individually, or as sets that include three arrows selling for under $70. Each bow can be shot right and left handed, with a draw weight of 20-25 pounds, depending on your draw length.
Victor Recurve Bow – This is a 66-inch bow similar to the one Katniss wields during Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Though she shot this bow bare, it has threaded holes for accessories such as a sight, rest and plunger and stabilizer. It’s suitable for archers up to 6 feet tall. This bow is sold as part of a set that includes three Easton aluminum arrows.
District Primitive Longbow – This is a traditional-style recurve bow made of wood and featuring a leather grip. It is available by itself or as part of a set that includes three wooden arrows. You can shoot this bow right and left handed, since it has shelf cuts on both sides of the riser. This is another good starter bow, or a bow for a family or camp, priced to sell at under $100.
Hoyt Buffalo Traditional Recurve – The Buffalo reportedly is the bow model Katniss used in Catching Fire. This is an advanced bow that – at a cost of $799.99 – is probably priced for experienced archers and bowhunters who plan to stick with archery for a while. You can choose from a number of color options and draw weights ranging from 35 to 65 pounds. Separate bows are made for right and left-handed archers.
