Form curves

I sometimes use this method to get a nice curve.

TJ -- I am looking for some pics I have of a decent R/D longbow. It is patterened off the old Longhunter, Dan Quillian used to sell. After he sold Archery Traditions and the rights to the Longhunter, he had a guy in Alabama make a cheap version that actually shoots pretty good that he sold on ebay.

2 parallel lams of oak under clear glass and a walnut riser, super smooth too. I bought 2 of them right from the guy who made them. $80 for a finished bow and $50 for a blank.

I will post the pictures when I find them.

Hank, you ever see that Bamboo Longhunter that Bill Matlock got his hands on and reworked? I don't know what kind of magic he had/has, but he managed to drop the draw weight 5 pounds and make the bow FASTER... :lol:
