Hank my setup is McCullough Tsunami 68" 42@28 I draw 29". Whispering Wind Hex pine shafts, 100 grain field points, 3 4" feathers, 450 plus string, Cavalier Elite tab. The Tsunami is a well kept secret, a fast easy to shoot longbow

Anyone have a picture of a Tsunami? Since John built the Shrews I would guess the Tsunami is a reverse handle, as well. I made some suggestions to Rob at TradTech about making and selling a reverse handle, tournament grade longbow. Hopefully Samick and him will come up with something nice and original (and long!)

I think it is possible for Hill style longbows to be shot very accurately, even at longer ranges, but the grip shape and other elements of the shooting process have to be understood for it to happen. It is just easier to put the grip on the other side of the plane of the limbs and be accurate. I also build my own longbows and will be building both styles in the future to play with.

A few of us on here like 450+, even on recurves.... doesn't seem to be the norm for some reason.

Nice to have some longbow shooters on here :)

I tried to post a pic of my Tsunami,. gonna have to play with some photo editor to resize it, but the grip is very similar to a Shrew with the thumb rest. Also has trapazoid (sp?) limbs and tiny nock tips.

I liked the old timer with the self bow. He was my favorite. Someone tell Van in FL that I want his autograph. :P I wonder how many tries before he nailed that target at 100 yards? They run downrange, change out the paper target, run back, and try again.

I remember a thread on Trad Talk where Denny SturgisJr. was remarking how VAN/FL's long range shooting was. He hinted that it was a one take deal.

Larry Yien won all his world titles shooting a 21st Century edge.
In 06 he shot a fox triple crown in Australia he placed 5th.
It is not the bow it is the shooter in a given division.
