BowTech has developed a tribute to legendary Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle with the launch of a limited edition “The Legend” bow, available at BowTech dealers in July. BowTech will make a donation to the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation (CKFF) for each bow purchased.
Kyle’s story is of course told in “American Sniper,” and BowTech was involved with the film from the beginning, providing apparel for actor Bradley Cooper during production, attending film premieres and now partnering with the CKFF to support service members and first responders.
The CKFF was launched on Veteran’s Day, 2014, and was the vision of Chris Kyle prior to his death. Taya Kyle, as Executive Director of CKFF, continues to work tirelessly to extend Chris’ legacy through the foundation.
“BowTech has been incredibly supportive of the American Sniper film and eager to develop programs to support the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation,” said Taya Kyle. “We are excited for the launch of The Legend bow and hope supporters for BowTech and CKFF will consider this bow when preparing for the 2015 hunting season.”
The CKFF provides meaningful, interactive experiences to service members, first responders and their families, aimed at enriching their family relationships. The experiences provided by the foundation are designed to give those it is assisting the opportunity to reconnect and remember what they love about each other, thus empowering families to thrive.
The Legend bow is built on the same platform as the company’s 2015 flagship bow, Prodigy, and features PowerShift technology, a new innovation in compound bow design that allows the shooter to have every bow he wants with zero compromise. A quick shift of the PowerDisc changes the bow from its Performance setting (maximum speed and knock-down power) to its Classic setting (hard-hitting but smooth) or its Comfort setting (effortless draw).
“The Legend bow is every bit as versatile as our 2015 flagship bow, and we’re excited to be able to support the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation through its sales,” said Jeff Suiter, Product Marketing Manager for BowTech Archery. “Archers everywhere will know they’re contributing to a great cause.”
Additional BowTech technologies featured on the bow include OverDrive Binary Cams for impeccable tuning and consistency, Center Pivot Extreme for unmatched accuracy and speed and FLX-Guard to eliminate riser torque.
The Legend bow comes with a Kryptek Typhon finish and features red, white and blue bowstrings. Each bow has a serial number with Taya Kyle receiving the first bow, CK001. A commemorative Chris Kyle “The Legend” hat comes with each bow purchase.
