Kirk have you ever seen pictures of a Saunders Swift?
Man throw some phenolics in a Sasquatch and you'd have a Swift.
You could call it a Swift Sasquatch or a Fast Bigfoot
Your bow sure is a beauty.

Nope haven't seen one... you have a link with a photo?

This is an original design i came up with from scratch, but it wouldn't suprize me to see something similar out there. You could say the Sasquatch is rather quick....but swift ? Naw....It just dont fit this one.

There are a number of recuve bows that look similer to mine at first glance. but this one is a radical R/D long bow and has a bit of of creativity in the limbs i haven't yet seen in other bows.

4nolz had a curve he put together a couple years back that he had kicking around under his wotk bench that looked real similar too. :D

i like Ron LaClairs attitude, "If other bowyers out there copy my design, i'll take it as a compliment." i must admit i spent a lot of time looking at the limbs on his bows, but i've never shot one.

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

I was more looking at the riser than the limbs,I think it has 20 or 30 phenolic lams, but similar outline.
I'll try and find a picture of a swift to post
Nice work
