Nice...tip overlays are some of the best I've seen. Love that bloodwood, what does that riser weigh?

Chem, I've not weighed it, but I will tonight. I'll post as soon as I get home. It's the same shape as the one I made for Mike (Crookedstick)... I wonder Mike would you weigh that zebra wood riser?

Not sure I have anything at home to weigh it with. But I can take it to work and put it on the postal scale. If I can remember-- :roll:

I love the subtle riser lines above the sight bushings and the grip area, as well as the crisp lines on the thumb groove. I have seen where cari-bow matched the riser accent swoop with the wedge...I think that would look outstanding on your design. I too have Genesis 27 verse 3 on a bow. Great looking bow!
