Ahhhhh.... words of wisdom from the bucket perspective....ya just gotta love that..... :D

i just hate it when those little voices use too many four letter words though. :shock:

Hey Ken.... did i tell you my daughter bought me a camo bucket with a padded seat for Christmas! :o I kid you not bro :D the thing even has a lazy susan balbearing set up on the lid so you can rotate your perspective with ease.... :lol: :lol: i take it goose hunting and put a heater in the thing too. :D


yup Jim, that is frustrating... i've got to the point where i do that last bit of fine tuning totally by hand with a long block and 120 grit...if you get everything balanced out and there is still a bit of limb twist.... put the sand paper away and use the force....i'm not pulling your leg either...there are other ways to straighten limbs that will hold well.....or if the slight twist is towards the shelf, leave it there and call it an artistic flaw.. :D it will help your arrow clearance too...

Well... I have spent about 1 hour shooting my all foam double carbon today... and I am at peace...If it only shoots 172 fps (no offense to anyone whose bow shoots that speed)... I will be Happy as a Lark! Or a faggot in a weiny factory... whichever analogy you prefer ;) I am shooting some 500 grainers out of it right now and its about 57#... SWEEEET and probably just slightly over 172 fps :? ;) And... Dead....and when I pay attention...its stacking them in real nice...

Only misgiving is going to be the possibility I wont be using it for turkey... :roll:

I went to the Easter family gathering and ate way too much ham, came home and laid up another set of limbs, put the epoxy grain fill coat on one bow, and got those limbs fitting good on the T/D Sasquatch.... :D

tomorrow is going to be a long day in the shop, but i'm making serious headway....i promise i'll get strig measurements for you tomorrow Ken.... i'm up to my ass in aligators here. :shock:

btw.... i am really looking forward to being there. :D

Man...what are the limb pad angles on the beast!?

Cool pic man...

I frickin swear... this is my 3rd WTT and the 3rd time I am struggling to get the bows in the mail! I'm leaving work early today (like in an hour! :o :roll: ) and going home to write on my limbs and spray one last coat... Then get them boxed up and to the Post Office... sorry Kendog... but if I get them in the mail this afternoon you probably wont have them till Tuesday.... :oops: I know... I am Bungholio.... I come to shoot your cocobungholio bow.... hehehehe

This is the first peek at the T/D beast i'm calling the "Yeti" bro... you get credit on that idea.... the pad angle is 31 degrees. hell the cat's out of the bag now. i was saving this one for a suprize entry at WTT, but i'm still up to my neck in bugs here. it may not make the trip.

here's a better shot of it.
