Nothing new to report this week. I've got five unfinished bows laying around in my shop that need to be sanded and sprayed, so I had better get them completed before I rough out a new one. Steve (badger) said that 187 fps is excellent for that 35# bow, and it would probably go into the 190s with a lighter string. I just got some new 8125 string material, so I can try that. That makes me really optimistic about the next one I'm planning with about a 50# pull. If it will go into the 190s, then I'm going to try some carbon. Jim

Only archers are fool enough to want to make a composite with natural materials and man made materials, and then bend it repeatedly...
