I guess part of it depends on the length of the longbows you shoot - but a 2 piece 66" longbow would fit in most of my arrow cases and a 68" would fit in two of my arrow cases.

Just wondering the reasons, advantages/disadvantages, etc. because I'm in the process of ordering a 2 piece longbow.

For functionality, I'd like the two piece just as much. I like the looks of a three piece, but not the weight and feel that typically comes with it. I also already have several one piece recurves and a one piece longbow and I'd like to have a three piece just to have something different.

Pronghorns are very light and slim for 3 piece bows. I got the chance to shoot a few at rmsgear and they are top notch bows imo

The Morrison Archery Shawnee is streamlined and not heavy.The riser comes in sizes A,B and C.A being the shortest.He will do many grips as well.He will customize a grip.

If he'still building it.It comes with Dakota longbow limbs and recurve as well.

Check out Yellowstone Bows. I have their Halfbreed model. Awesome bow!. Looks alot like the Pronghorn and Prairie Nomad. I also owned a Prairie Nomad for several years. Probably should have kept it. The Yellowstone Halfbreed is super quiet even without silencers.
