I'm not sure how long you're supposed to let this Krystal harden before stringing it up, so I'll just wait until morning for braced and full draw photos. Here are a few until then:

So how do you like the Krystal? It sure looks good on the bow. Also appears you got the wenge level?

Mike...

I am extremely happy with the Krystal.
I filled the wenge pores 5 times and gave up. There is still a bit of pore dimples here and there :oops:

FYI.....Krystal with the catalyst will eat through a clear plastic beer cup in about 4 minutes.

BK you need to get the mixing cups that are used auto paint shops. They are a cloudy plastic and hold up well to the harsher type finishes.

Wow! I'm really excited to receive this baby!

I feel terrible that I haven't started Ben's bow yet. I'm actually pretty scared to start another boo backed ipe! :o

Braced. I put the beaver balls on there hoping Marty uses this to kill a hog :)

Full draw. The arrow is 28"

Chickens were helping retrieve the arrows. I just thought it was funny.

Marty....PM me your address. I'll get it out in a few days.
