Looks great to me! I really like it.
From your other post, it sounds like you got it shooting pretty good, too.
What made you decide to try something different than your belly mount design?

Tom, I just wanted to try a front mount so no real reason... but to also look into semi-statics and statics for noise. My old design was ok but not nearly as quiet as a friends RER Retro. I went light on the tip wedge on this one just to see how it'd do and it has stability galore. Im gonna thicken the next TW up a bit to see if I can get more static out of it. I will say this, that front mounts are so much easier to make than belly mounts. So much easier to align the limbs for drilling.

I see one big thing wrong with it-- I aint had my grubby paws on it :) Looks really good from here. I do like the front mounts better. If it shoots harder than the one you made me--it is a keeper.

good looking string angle, and nice even energy storage in the limbs. I'll bet you are pleased with the results.

Only archers are fool enough to want to make a composite with natural materials and man made materials, and then bend it repeatedly...
