Yew shieldbow (u) detail

A Yew shieldbow (u) is cut from Yew logs at 70 Fletching, granting 75 experience. An unstrung yew shieldbow can be strung using a bowstring at 70 Fletching, granting an additional 75 experience thus making a yew shieldbow.

Unstrung yew shieldbows were commonly used to train magic using high level alchemy, due to the fact that you were able to profit slightly from each alch. Now however, the loss is 113 per alch so many players choose to alch maple shieldbows and unstrung maple shieldbows instead. Many players who fletch yew shieldbows do not sell them unstrung, as this reduces gain, so it is more commonly alched as a complete bow.

Buying unstrung yew shieldbows is getting common among players as stringing yew shieldbows with bowstring can gain about -160 coins per bow and the experience gained per hour is more than fletching yew logs. Due to the drop in price in unstrung yew shieldbows, the profit gained from stringing is getting better.
