Full Information

Falco Legend is the most manufactured Falco longbow model, which rightfully according to its name has already turned into a Legend by now. The protoypes of it were already made in 1997 when Falco produced its first ten longbows for the Robin Hood theatrical act in Tartu. That was the beginning of the Falco longbow legacy which now - more than 10 years later, has turned well-known if not to say phenomenal in the archery world.


The First European Champion title to Falco (out of the tens and tens) was also won with a Legend bow when Tapani Säila was crowned as the 1999 IFAA Male European Field Archery Champion. In the years, the Falco collection has grown significantly with more efficient and custom-made bows but the Legend has not lost its spark and importance as a wonderful bow - rather vice versa even. Every year, we have produced vastly more than the previous year and the sales of Legend has spread to most of the region being the sole motor behind the popularization of longbow shooting in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and by now also in Russia.


In July 2010 a 50# Falco Legend was reviewed in the independent British traditional archery review site Archers Review. See the review HERE
