Here is the second bow I have made. Some of you might have already read about my experiences with this build!

Well, I made peace with the fact that this bow is going to be a heavey one and decided to finish it as is.

Bow specs are as follows:

66" Reflex/Deflex Longbow
75#@28"

I named this bow "The Jericho" because a joke was made during its construction that it was so powerful if you shot an arrow out of it the arrow would break up into several carbon shards and decimate the target, just like the Jericho missile in the Iron Man movie!

Very nice looking riser. I like the detail on the tips too. Hopefully the next one hits weight!

Good looking bow!
