Oh it Feels GOOD!!

Man, I am finally making dust again. I glued up a kid bow and finally got Pete's Quad Carbon to about 98.5% done. Even shot it.. Its a sweety. Man..I am so glad to be building again. I also sketched out a new kidz bow form...it'll be a cool bow. I think I'll do a one piece adult bow just like it..

Good to hear that you are back at it, Ernie!! If things ever settle down, how 'bout a pic or two of the kids bows?

Yeah...give me a week or two. I shipped 2 out without even snapping a photo!

I did tease Cutty about shooting his new quad carbon today though... He's got a 60 some pounder, carbon reinforced riser, double carbon limbs, macassar ebony... I put about 50 arrows through her today... I told him, "I hope you dont like it, so I can buy it back from ya!" hehehe

Yeah, I keep trying to pump Ernie's bows up on other sites, hoping to keep the pressure on him, so he'll build me a shooter like his personal bow I shot, and he turned the tables on me the other day, saying, "You know if you don't like it..." :lol:

I WANT IT!!

Especially since I'm in a shooting slump right now. This 20 degree stuff is starting to make me feel overbowed. I need a nice, smooth, dead in hand, 3 piece, girly weight bow. :P

Best thing for a slump, Cutty!!
Also you may not go back to the heavyweights once you find out how easy on the joints and muscles they are ;)

Roger, this is the first winter in the last four where I really am feeling a difference in draw weight with the cold. Of course, I'm shooting outside instead of in the barn, and that's part of it.

Plus, sooner or later I'm going to have to have my left rotator cuff cut on. I just hope it will be scoped, instead of opened up like my right one. I keep putting off the surgical consult because I don't look forward to going into the MRI tube for 45 minutes again-- talk about claustrophobic-- I'd rather try out my own coffin. The right one feels 95% now, which is more than I ever dreamed of. I'm totally pain free when drawing with it.

The bow arm shoulder makes it a little harder for me to get good alignment, but I don't have any pain until after the shot...but I do have a flare up of tendonitis in the left elbow caused from less than perfect alignment.

I don't really shoot heavy weight bows anyway. Only have one over #70 right now, and I don't shoot it that often-- more because I don't love the grip and length.

I was pretty excited to shoot Ernie's bow and find out I liked the grip, though...after all the bows I've had in my hands over the last few years, liking the grip is THE number one aspect for me.

Ernie's double carbon limbs kick ass. Plain and simple. What length is your new bow going to be, Pete?

The bow length, n-to-n is 64, but it takes a standard 66" amo string pretty well...twisted up a bit. I dont have my bow lengths quite amo yet... I guess if it takes a 66" amo string...its a 66. Hopefully Pete will live with that.

I do like those limbs too FD... I am hoping they are durable. The material is VERY untested. I have been considering not warranting my double carbons...could get me in a lot of trouble in the future. Then, in 2 years from now...if all is well, I'd warrant them..??? What do you guys think?
