Inspired by Serbian medieval horse bows (without shelf for an arrow) from the fresco of St. Procopius from the monastery of Lesnovo (Macedonia, 1349) whose founder was Despot Jovan Oliver, and by his title the model was named after, at the suggestion of my friend, one of the best master of archery equipment, Zak Đurica.
Graphic reconstruction of the bow was done by history professor Zoran Pavlovic, who studies Serbian medieval archery, especially bows, about which he published several scientific papers ..

The MR Bows are a reflection of the man himself: steady, tough, dependable, and artistic. It's been a privilege working with him.
after i searched for heavier bows, i finally found misko and contacted him. after i told him what i was looking for, he answered, "no problem, we can arrange everything!" so my first bow arrived and i was happy to get my first bow with over 75lbs! as i progressed, misko and his formidable service and deliverytime helped me to progress with drawweigths and technique. you wil never find another bowyer with so much modells and sub-modells which works so reliable and and smooth.
I currently own two MR Bows and am so thoroughly impressed and happy with them, that I have ordered a third. Not only are the Bows wonderfully made, but the customer service is spot on beyond compare. I have a long draw length and finding a well made, heavy poundage bow that can withstand a 34 inch (from the belly) draw is rare. To find one made by such a great artist, whose love of the bow comes through in his product is even more rare. If you are considering an MR Bow, you can be assured that your money will be very well spent.
