Very nice bows crooked Stic!

I particularly like the fibreglass socket for a takedown that looks like a one piece bow. That is high on my list of things to try.

Cheers... Rod

First bow for my wife, and some arrows and a knife :D . It came in too heavy for her at 35#@28" so I need to make lighter limbs to get her to full draw and build some form. Timbers are conkerberry (orange), purple gidget centre beam, white tulip oak and Queensland walnut accents, some purple heart in the overlay and knife handle liners. Arrows are 350-360 grains and come out of it quick. Knife is 1084 carbon steel 4" blade.

Very nice !
When you take your kid hunting and he says thank you and tells you how much he loves being in the woods with you, your day just isn't going to get any better than that.
