"Black Widow has used the Thunderbird Epoxy recipe for 30+ years. Its toughness and longevity is second to none. We have tried other finishes in the past but nothing matches the Thunderbird. If you want a finish that will last for decades then Thunderbird is what you are looking for."
Toby Essick Black Widow Bows
"Since 2003 I have tried several different bow finishes, no other product remotely compares with Thunderbird finish for it's durability, pore filling qualities, and professional appearance."
Chris Hartwig, NewWood Longbows
“Thunderbird epoxy is by far my go to choice for our bows! It gives our bows a super hard and elegant coating that every hunter and target shooter alike should demand!”
In all of my years of bow making, I have had the opportunity to try several different bow finishes. Some that were not sufficient for long and others that did all right under most circumstances. None of them however actually perform to the degree of Thunderbird Epoxy. I have found that when your bow is subjected to harsh conditions, that is when you can really tell what a finish is made of. Hands down Thunderbird Epoxy finish will out do any other finish when put to the test. Thanks for a great product!

Being a one-man shop, I need to be as efficient as possible with every aspect of my bow making. Finish was an area for me where I struggled for years. I tried water based poly finishes, oil based poly finishes, lacquer finishes, all with limited success. When a buddy of mine told me of his success with Thunderbird Epoxy I decided to give it a try.
I no longer worry about whether my finish will be good or not, I know it will be. Thunderbird is quick, easy to spray, fills the grain, and you can have a gorgeous gloss finish, a beautiful flat finish, or anything in between. I have found the only finish that will go on Lonesome Wind Custom Bows from now on, there is no sense in messing with anything less.Vince SmithLonesome Wind Custom Bows LLC
