Cool Looking Bow

Looking at that riser I'd guess it's a fairly short bow? Reminds me of the shape of a Bear SuperMag 48. Neat bow.

Lol. :lol: Actually now that I look a the limb sweeping away from the riser I can see how it could be a long bow.

I think this is the guy who used to a full time bowyer & a production designer that still makes a bow now & then. If it is, he makes some awesome looking bows. I've never shot any, but I think it's him. A couple of years back he said in a ebay listing that he was going to produce a limited number of bows every year (3-5?) if this the same person.

I think your talking about Bud Hitt or Hite makes the black ace target bow.
pretty crazy riser shapes, Mr Hitt puts on his bows.
I don't think anybody went as far with the Lams as the swift though
Sanders I think was in San Diego

You might be right. I think I saved his info somewhere, but there's been some GD'd format changes on ebay ya' halfta relearn if every month or two. But I do remember his bows were pretty busy in the lam department.

Seemed like a really knowledgeable & nice old gentleman.

Sanders Archery was its own company and made bows for custom order at times....in the 60's/70's. The specialized in multi-laminated risers of unique designs....normally all the Sanders were over 64 inches in length. I've owned several over the years and they were put together very well. Some folks confuse them with Saunders Archery, but they were a different entity.
