    Sep 5, 2013, 9:48 AM - Arrow Season 2 Bow #1

    Does anyone recognise this new bow? It looks to have recurve limbs...AND cables? Has a few trappings of standard compound bows as well.

    No, that one was a standard compound bow with cams at the end of the limbs



    I've never seen a bow with cam placements like that new one. Interesting

    I never noticed that they removed the cables on Malcolm's bow, making it a butchered compound - recurve.

    Yeah, I only noticed that myself after seeing that photo. I guess they did it so it could be used as a stunt bow with no risk of the cable disengaging when being drawn

    They did a similar thing to The GA Bow in Smallville, although for that they left the cables and bolted down the cams to not move, and replaced the string with an elastic cord.

    The one Oliver used in Smallville was the "PSE Mojo" painted with Automotive paint. This new bow in Season 2, is a whole other animal. LoL that has to be the most complicated bow I have ever laid my eyes on.

    Exactly as Primrodo say it is: Oneida Kestrel

    Hi, Arrow Archery Tech here, that is me on the left side of the pic above. You're correct! It is indeed the Oneida Kestrel. Sometimes referred to as a compound recurve.
    The Dark Archer/Malcolm Merlyn bow is a PSE without cables, as you said, for stunt safety.
    Kestrel is a really great bow, the overall design and look play well on the screen.

    Hello! Thanks for replying on my thread! I saw recently Oneida was taking some pride in the bow used in the show! I am trying to keep my eyes out for a used bow now! I LOVE the over all design much more than the season 1 bow!

    Is there anything about the bow you can share? (Ie what attachments are used?) Did you guys have a hand in the bows use or just the training and technical aspects?

    I thought Malcoms like like a PSE! Ironic since the previous Green Arrow bow was!

    Where did you see Oneida taking pride? I'd love to see that.
    I cannot really say much about the show but I can tell you that I handle all the training and make all archery related props (aside obviously from the bow), I also work closely with stunts to ensure safety and realism as much as possible. There isn't 'guys' it is just me as Archery Technician, and yes, I have most of the say on the bow's use as a bow but not as a punching weapon! I leave that up to stunts.
    Is that what you mean by 'bows use'?

    Unfortunately I cannot leak any secrets about the bow.

    They posted it on their Facebook page a couple times. I think they love seeing the bow on TV with such prominence

    I am glad to see some professionals helping them make the archery look as good as it does!

    By guys, sorry, I meant your company. I looked up your website last night and did not want to assume one way or another.

    By bows use I meant did you help in the selection after they had the original one destroyed in the finale. Especially going from a recurve to compound.

    How do you feel seeing the bows used as melee weapons? I know many bow aficionados have been cringing!

    As for secrets, understandable! More just curious on the arrow rest used and if there are anything else. It's obvious they added some items on the limbs for whatever reason and have a custom paint job, but looks fairly stock.

    I really wish they were not $1300! I was lucky enough to get my Green Arrow bow from Smallville fully complete, every accessory for it found this one will take a bit I think! Have to study screencaps and reference images for all the addons

    The Oneida Kestrel is a very nice bow, but I don't think I'd ever buy one. I was kinda curious about the new bow used in Arrow so thought I'd do a search. My question is who decided to put on a cheap $30 rest on a $1300 bow?

    My guess is that it may just be a dressed up limb dampener.
