The Black Sheep Nova is a recurve bow that gives you everything you need at a great price point. Styled as a hunting bow, the Black Sheep Nova comes in a 64 inch AMO length, which is more compact than a target bow but slightly bigger than a one piece hunting bow, giving you the best of both worlds.
The Nova is the perfect bow for beginner archers as well as experienced shooters looking for a good all rounder. Limbs are readily available and interchangeable, they also come in draw weights of 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 and 50lbs.
Black Sheep have raised the bar on quality when it comes to good value archery products, and the Nova is no exception. Crafted from fine hardwoods including Olive Dymondwood and Hard Maple, precision machine layered, shaped and laminated, you won't get a better bang for your buck. The riser is perfectly radiused or "cut-to-centre" giving you accurate off the shelf shooting. We recommend picking up a hair or felt rest, though a stick on leaf style rest is included in the box. The Nova also has industry standard bushings for sights, arrow rests and a front stabilizer, so you can really customise how it shoots.
The Black Sheep Nova handle or riser is fully compatible with any draw weight option from the Nova limbs. You can also fit other bow limbs such as the Samick Sage, though we recommend sticking with the Nova limbs as they are of a higher build quality. The limb fitting itself is a simple yet secure screw in bolt that can be tightened by hand.
The Nova handle will include the limb bolts and a simple stick on arrow rest. You just need to add on your limbs and you will have the full bow (string included with every purchase of limbs).
Black Sheep Nova handles/risers come in left or right handed.

Great RiserBy: Rob Johnstone on 21 October 2019A great quality riser with all the benefits of a Samich Sage but with a smother finish, rounder sleeker profile and better price. The ability to add sights suitable for compound bows plus bow fishing gear and even a bow mounted quiver makes this package very versatile. Add the ability to purchase extra limbs as you improve makes this the current standout value bow for recurve hunting. Coupled with the Nova Black Sheep limbs and you have a bow with none of the stacking issues associated with the Sage. I have the Sage and this bow, I find the Nova superior.
