Kirk,
Oh boy :roll: Now you gone and dun it!!! Telling Gino that curves are at a disadvantage just fueled his fire!! Now I gotta worry about making my bow another 4FPS faster if I want a repeat of last year. (remember the begining of the WTT II video???? where I said, "and to those that say we cant, THEIR DOUBT JUST FUELS THE FIRE"

I guess now I have to move my chips over to the Gino side of the table. :lol:

LOL ken!!! nah..... i think curves and hybrids are about dead nuts equal...... though as jim (jwillis) has said many times, "recurves are harder to optimize."

Well guys... i know more about numbers and odds than i do bow building, and certainly didn't mean to kick a hornets nest here. but Ken... i still think you should spot old Gino 5 FPS to even up the odds against your new whippin stick....all i gotta do here is build me a riser and slap Ernies Hawk limbs on it to get in the money....LOL!

seriously though... bows have that seductive look and feel to them not unlike exotic women. i've always secretly loved the full bodied volumptious curves of the recurve a lot. but aftter experiencing the intoxicating effects of the long bow... i'll never be the same....that long sleek sexy look of a tall woman in heels, the lean athletic flex of those long limbs....well boys.... it just don't get better than that in by book...

if it makes ya feel better Gino i'll be entering one of those full curve beauties too...but my money will be on the hybrid LB's...

keep something in mind here too.....even a long shot comes in now and then.... :shock:

kirk..... in order to make a recurve as fast as the hybrid, you have to take some off it's "hips" to lean it out enough to get them up to the "holy grail"..... while a fully "leaned out" recurve may look more like hillary clinton than an exotic supermodel, they perform like michael phelps. recurves store energy more efficiently than hybrids..... trying to get them to release it as efficiently is another issue and takes a little creative thinking to make it happen.

kirk- i think if you have bows blowing up on you, you don't get any spot....... those bows blowing up are a sign that you just might be sandbagging on us ;)
