I should have said non I-beam  I never made a take down so I guess my question is ,is it doable ? I don't see why it wouldn't be but figured I would ask plus ,I think it would look cool !

The spectraply we can get now instead of the old Rutland stuff is not as good in my opinion. I think with a TD mid fifties and up for sure needs a ibeam. I have stabilized it before and it takes a lot of resin but needs to be clamped when curing. Seems the glue gives up at 200 degrees.

I have a T/D recurve made by Jeffery back in the late 80's with an Actionwood riser without an I beam.

There is some new stuff out there that has 3 to 1 layers on the pictures I’m seeing on here, very thin layers.
I would rather fail at something above my means, than to succeed at something  beneath my means
