Confident collaboration with Henry Bodnik climaxes in Jackalope cooperation

A years-long friendship and confident cooperation connects us with Henry, which is why we were already honored by Henry as Bearpaw Gold Dealer in 2013. We also like to meet on fairs after work and chat about all and sundry.

Together with Henry in a unique collaboration, we developed and released the first Jackalope by Bodnik Bows models onto the market in 2016, which is a wonderful unification of Henry´s years-long experience in bow making and our demand for highest quality and aesthetics.

In order for Henry to be able to focus even more on Bodnik Bows in the future, his successor Tim Beier has assumed the management of Bearpaw Products in the beginning of 2019.

What makes Bodnik Bows so special?

All Bearpaw models are handmade serially and with a lot of passion for detail. Whether Grizzly Hunter or Kodiak Hunter does not matter, in the traditional sector, Bodnik Bows are definitely one of the top brands. Even for young archers, Henry developed a suitable bow that is available from 15lbs: the Mingo. The Slick Stick as a robust hybrid bow also achieves high arrow speed as well as little handshock at the same time - for less than €300, this is what we call good value for money!

Of course Henry wants his bowmakers to be as knowledgeable as possible, which is why the apprenticeship takes place at experienced bowmakers in the United States among others. Furthermore, Henry tests numerous different materials like the Bearpaw Powerglass as long as it takes to fully satisfy his high demands for quality. Because of this, Bearpaw and Bodnik Bows have meanwhile become very popular globally and the bows are shot daily in numerous countries all around the globe.

Energy-efficient material: Bearpaw Powerglass

Aside from the years-long experience and intense apprenticeship of his bowmakers, the Bearpaw Powerglass is also a basis for the success of Bodnik Bows. Henry and his development team were tinkering about the final formula from 2013 to 2016 and invested into a completely new method of manufacturing until he was happy with the energy-efficiency, transparency and brilliance of the final product.

The glass laminate consists of glass fibers and a certain amount of epoxy, which coats the glass fibers and connects them. While the glass alone would be able to be flexed in all directions without too much force, the added epoxy forces the fibers into the desired form. The material can no longer be flexed into a different shape and thereby has to stretch. In this process, the glass stores energy that it will later transfer to the arrow for the most part, other than the epoxy. This is why the high amount of glass in your Bodnik bow allows for much more momentum.
