Damn Jim, looks like you might have nailed it! The unbraced and braced pics look real good from here.
Nice job :thumbsup:

That looks great :thumbsup:

Love how it holds just the slightest bit of reflex at brace.

Thanks guys. Shot my spine test arrows through it today. It seems to like a  29.5"45-50 spine cedar. Its pulling58 at 26" now. The outer 1/3 s are still a bit stiff.

Weight update. It seems it takes my scale to measure the complete weight being measured. I weighted this bow again and noticed that the numbers were still climbing. My original measurement was way off. I pulled it to 27" and waited until the weight shown stabilized. 64lbs at 27". Or 65 at 28" I would assume.

Looks nice!  What are the limb widths on your bow.

I agree about the right limb.
 Also, holding a selfbow at a static length can be detrimental.
I didn’t notice the rope either but am glad the point was made as I wasn’t aware of this. So do you recommend while examining tiller it be done quickly several times versus say 10 seconds?

pull it to full draw (or what ever inches you are pulling to) and let it back down after a second while shooting a video and go back and pause it for review.
I would rather fail at something above my means, than to succeed at something  beneath my means
