It's true, I now own a "soulless" metal riser bow :D

Been thinking about it for a while and emailed John Wert back around November, took me this long to get on his "schedule" :? lol... the wife and I drove up Thursday and he had a Titan III with 40# long black max 2.0 's waiting on me. Of course the day before I talked to Yohon knowing he has already done every imaginable combination of rests, off the shelf, limbs etc. and he recommended the Bear Weatherrest so that's what we went with. John ran me through a crash course on limb pocket adjustments and we got it on the practice range. During the "tour" portion he showed me the carbons with the aluminum "jacket" skinnier shaft and in "autumn orange". ( he said Randy shoot's 'em so I said, OK ! )

We came up with a full length shaft with a 75 grain brass insert and 145 - 175 upfront, the bow scales a little over 51 pounds at my 31" draw and it is dead quiet shooting that heavy arrow. I was impressed with the speed I was getting with it too, no chrony #'s but it's slinging 'em pretty good ! I shot it yesterday with my current arrows, 500 grains and they are bullets ! I should have the FMJ's next week and want to get it out on the butts and see what it does out to 50 or so. I really didn't think that I could shoot a recurve as I hate a "pistol" grip. I have the low wrist Titan/ Tradtech grip on it now and it's a little skinny but I think I can get used to it ;)

That sounds like a killer setup Tim. I was really disappointed that I couldn't come down to meet you for lunch.

I saw that..... I always thought that was a quality shop too. You'd think that they would have a better option than a $2.00 piece of recycled Walmart bags. Disappointing.....
