Bowtech Launches “The Legend” Bow in Support of Chris Kyle Frog Foundation

11242075_1002711253093807_6243368443293186565_oChrisKyleTheLegendBow manufacturer Bowtech has designed a limited edition “The Legend” bow in honor of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. The Legend will be available at Bowtech dealers in July, and a donation will be made to the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation by Bowtech for every bow sold.

The CKFF works to support service men and women and first responders by creating opportunities for them to reconnect with family, empowering them to thrive. CKFF was launched on Veteran’s Day in 2014. Tara Kyle, wife of Chris and executive director to CKFF, continues to extend Chris’ legacy through the foundation and by working with companies like Bowtech.

Bowtech was also heavily involved in the making of the movie “American Sniper” which told Kyle’s story.

The Legend bow was built with the same technology as Bowtech’s new flagship bow, the Prodigy, which features PowerShift technology, ATA speeds of 343 fps, a 7-inch brace height, and weighs in at only 4.2 pounds.
