Just got this beauty in my hands! Wow! Great job Bob! I can hardly wait to get home and shoot it.

I almost had a heart attack opening the mangled triangle tube though! It all worked out, but I cringe every time I see a bow shipped in one. PVC sewer pipe for me.

Thanks again man! I'll give you guys an update after shooting.

I shot one of my D97 strings on her last night, and she is fast. A little louder than I like though, so I'm gonna twist up a flemish B50 and see how she does.

Allright guys! I've been way too busy lately, but finally got around to making a new string for the awesome bow Bob made for me. I have to eat my wheaties before shooting this one! I usually shoot around 48-50@27 and this one is 57@27! I like a really quiet bow, because I don't do the target thing. If it ain't hunting quiet, I'm just not going to shoot it much. I made a 12 strand D97 string for this puppy right after I got it and it was way too loud for me. This morning I made a B-50 string and it's about 300% quieter to my ears. This thing is still a screamer! Very fast and very stable for me. I was shooting it again this evening, and I swear I've never shot one any more consistent. I didn't think these speed demons were supposed to be forgiving? :D I will try to stick a hog with it this coming weekend! It hits so hard, that I think it's dangerous! It makes me want to find the biggest, nastiest, 400# boar, and stick him through both shoulder blades, just because I can!!! :twisted: Hopefully common sense will hold me back!

Thanks again Bob!

HOLY CRAPP BOBBY!!! I just now finaly paged back and looked at what you built here for Marty!! It looks awesome bro! :D Youve come a long way since WTT. That hybrid looks just as refined as your recurve is looking man. SAWEET! but I hope you put some heavy blood repellent in the finish because we know Marty, its gonna get messy with boar blood:lol:
People used to say that I'd never amount to much but I can always say Ive served as a bad example!

Ken is a good builder! I'm still in the amatuer class. The one I'm working on is only #22 for me.

I'm looking forward to getting a bow in Ben's hands, so I can get some good feedback. I plan to do a very detailed "redneck" build-a-long on here. I figure to start in a few weeks, since I only got one other build ahead of him. Everyone getting their bows finished already means that my build may be the only game in town, besides hunting season. :D
