It's a- Whatchamacallit-Dang Ugly is what
« on: February 05, 2005, 12:57:00 PM »
This is dang ugly.It is a culmination of a lot of different styles of bows.
Snakey pyramid bend in the handle static nonstatic sinew backed penobscot brush bow.Try saying that fast!Nothing that looks like it would even shoot an arrow let alone be quick or shock free.Let me tell you this little yella booger bow is quick,quiet and has no handshock.56"ntn 45#@28" and it's something no self respecting selfbowyer would even consider saying that he made it,let alone use it in public.That's why I think I will keep and use this one myself.  "[tunglaff]"

Abie-Normal I'd call her  :bigsmyl:  

Linc that bow is awesome, I ain't going to say a thing about the tiller buddy, I can only imagine how difficult that was.

Thanks    :bigsmyl:  I'm sure it will get some strange looks when people see it, but I can't wait to see the look of surprise when they shoot it.  "[tunglaff]"  I forgot to mention,shoot off the hand.Can be shot from either hand,right or left.

Thanks Dano. It was a bugger for tillering.The grip area is actually almost a medium wrist.Tiller isn't great but the limb timing is almost dead on.Go figure?

Nope, normal is not a descriptor for that bow, but, that is a cool product of a creative mind   :thumbsup:

I like it. Perhaps it would be possible to mount a third smaller bow on top of the smallest one, and call it a triple Penobscot. Bue--.

Bue,I had thought about that.Maybe I'll give it a try when I can draw higher weights more comfortably.  :bigsmyl:  

Bernie, You should try winters up here in New York.

I had some other ideas for this bow but I couldn't figger out how to get them to work.Right now I'm putting silk backings on it.After that I'll be putting horn overlays on the tips.   :wavey:

Richie.56"ntn on the main bow.36"ntn on the back bow.Ever try making 8 1/2" flemish twist strings?  :knothead:  The back bow is 5/8" at the widest and the main is around 1 3/8 tapering down to 7/16" at the tips.Both are flat bellied.

How in the world do you figure your learning curve took a step back? You got a very complicated design to shoot, that's a major accomplishment dude!!    :thumbsup:
