Is there a limit to missed weight? This is a brand new design and I’m gonna miss by 3-4 low ? LOL

That's pretty dang close for a new design.  Maybe your victim will spill something.   Twere me, I'd be happy with it.

She’s a 60 with a 15” riser. May trim to 58 to get weight. String is a bit close to limb at tips to suit me...
Stay sharp, Kenny.

Seeing as experimentation seems to be our theme this year and you did something outside your norm, I would vote 3-4# to be within limits!

Kenny I think that ought to handle a longer draw. As long as that string aint tiouchin itll be okay.

Right now it goes to 29 before gaining per inch but if the tips were slimmed down it would uncurl tips more for longer draw plus give more string clearance . Why why why do I make a first for the swap???  :biglaugh:
Stay sharp, Kenny.

I'm good with a few pounds off Kenny. Just make sure to take the diaper off the riser before you send it.

my $0.02.....I like to hunt with the bows i get at least a couple times but if I can't take it hunting due to being too light for state regs, I use it for form work/winter target practice...so, all is well. I would rather have a bow that came in under than one that came in #10 over. lol

I could make another set of string grooves and send 2strings with it but I don’t really like that look....

3-4# low is not an issue for me.
Not sure what you don’t like in the limbs this profile looks really fast and smooth drawing to me. Do you have a picture at full draw?

3-4# low is horrible. Send that bow to me right away and get started on another  :saywhat:

Dang, y'all are getting after it!!! I've been up to my eyeballs and wasn't even planning to put real time into this until the second half of March.

Kenny, I wouldn't worry about your recipient too much. He's easy going and has no idea what he really wants anyhow.  :laughing:
